    In the widget area the drag-and-drop option works well, but can be used only once for one RSS. Is this OK? Also in the settings there are 5 settings fields. The first one has a word (Widget) on the right. What are 4 others for? Thanks for any reply.
    Regards
    Serge

    Hi
    thanks for sorting out the 2 problems i mentioned earlier.
    the plugin works fine now..would it be possible to be able to have an option to select the number of news items that are displayed rather than having to display all of them..maybe for a future release?
    thanks

    Hi,

    Firstly I really like this plugin.
    I am however having trouble adjusting the CSS and I get this in the editiors title
    “Editing rss-news-display/rss-news-display.css (inactive)
    Select plugin to edit:”

    Not sure why this would be labeled “inactive”

    Cheers

    Thanks for this plugin. As also mentioned by others, it would be nice if more than one newsitem could be shown in the display. Is it also possible to add a ‘header’ at the widget where you can give it a name?

    Hi,
    there’s a display issue you can notice when several news items are available. When you load the page, all items are visible for the time needed to load and after that it shows up properly.
    Do you know a workaround for that? Maybe hiding the div and show it once all is loaded?

    I’m suddenly getting this message on the page where I’ve got my shortcode for the rss news display. I’ve tried deactivating all other plugins, reinstalling the plugin, and am still getting this message. Any ideas?

    You should Write how to solve this error message:
    : fopen() [function.fopen]: http:// wrapper is disabled in the server configuration by allow_url_fopen=0 in on line : fopen(http://jhome.jh.ohost.de/jhome/feed/) []: failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in on line : fread() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in on line : fclose() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in on line

    by writing the cUrl code

    $ch = curl_init();
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $rss_url);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
    $rss_content = curl_exec($ch);
    curl_close($ch);

    if( $rss_content ) {

    and how to modify the .php file
