Title: Google Calendar XML Feed not working in RSS News Component
Post by: chazbomusic on December 08, 2013, 12:39:44 PM
I am trying to display Google Calendar content in an RSS News component on my timeline. When I paste the XML URL provided by Google for my calendar into the CUSTOM URL field in the properties setting of the RSS News component, nothing shows up. But when I switch to one of the default feeds, like Yahoo Sports, that does show up.

Thank you, this helped a lot. I am now experiencing some problems with the feed and the layout.

FEED: The title does not show. Instead, it shows the word "busy" in place of the actual event title.

LAYOUT: The scene does not appear to fill the the screen division in the browser preview mode. The screen divsion is 240x452. In the SignageStudio, I have set the dimensions of the scene (240x452) to be the exact same dimensions of the screen division (240x452). Within the scene, there are two elements: image resource (header) and RSS Feed (Google Calendar feed details). Each element is sized to be the full width of the scene (240) and the combined height of the two elements (100 for header and 352 for RSS feed) is set to fill the scene height. However, when I launch the presentation in a browser, there is a white boarder around the scene RIGHT and BOTTOM. Also, the feed content scrolls from the bottom within the SignageStudio, been when I go to preview the feed content starts from about the middle of the screen division.
