Google AJAX RSS module is based on Google AJAX API and displays RSS feeds using AJAX in a slideshow format. You can use the following styles to display your RSS feeds. In most of the case default style is suitable.
1. Vertical Stacked (Default and Recommended)
2. Vertical (No stacking of feeds)
In latest version (1.1), you can also control the CSS to some extent from module and number of feeds has been made configurable from module settings.
If you are using the module in left, right or similar position then use any of the vertical positions. In wide positions like header positions, you may want to try the horizontal position.
Tip: Works and looks best when used within full width article using loadposition directive.
Installation : no problem.
Configuration and customization : easy and fast.
Works perfectly on the first try.
Captures attention while being unobtrusive.
I beg the developer to continue the updates to this extension!
It is FREE for now but I would buy il without hesitation.
SAlexson could you send this code for making more RSS channels ?? Three is a little to small... I cannot read the code from your review :) Anybody knows the code for increasing the number of RSS channels? I need 10 and even more....
Is there any documentation for editing the module?
Also would love an update to support images from the feed.
I would like to respond to benaam's review concerning a way to change the number of articles retrieved for each feed.
You don't actually need to get a local copy of the js file from Google. You can modify the module code to make this configurable.
After line 45, add:
After line 63, add:
numResults : get('numResults'); ?>
With these 2 simply changes, the number are articles is now configurable through the module.
Hope this helps anyone else that may want to do this.
As I said before, great mod!
Best of the bunch with no problems. Yes it has restrictions and this meant it had to be in a bottom position. Linked the 3 alternative feed sites and it worked flawlessly.
I would however like to be able to duplicate the module and have more than one instance of this running on my site, however, when I duplicate it, only the last enabled module displays.
Brilliant extension. Thank you!
Can I get the code for 10 feeds?
(or can you tell me how to vary the number?, I want 5 and 10 feeds as standard) (also can I vary number of articles in the feed?)
As for changing the number of feeds, it can be done in gajaxfeeds.htm file of the module. You need to add code for feeds if you want to add more feeds. You just need to copy paste the code.
