No problem, Thanks!

I prefer yours, much easier to figure out and edit.

I got it working if you enter your required feed into http://www.rssmix.com/ and then use the link generated in your skin instead of the original it works fine!!

Edit: One side effect is the links don't seem to be clickable as they were previously.

Code: Select all

. it should require less processing power then.
I was having the exact same problem as gffmac...I too have copied the skin several times, naming them appropriately, but having RM crash due to a webparser.dll error however.

So your solution (quoted) has worked for me so far. Adding the semicolon renders the substitute code to be ignored, right?

Anyway, thanks for your work!

UPDATE: I spoke too soon! RM still crashing!

Here's the error:

UPDATE2: Instead of running 4 Feeds, I removed the 4th one, and am using only 3 now.....No errors. Guess I had too many going, using up too much processor.

UPDATE3: How stupid of me...I didn't notice that you'd updated your original post with a new version 1.4, and fixed some resource-draining issues. Just installed it, and am able to run all 4 of my feeds with no problems! YES!

yes. to learn more about substitutions i suggest reading this tutorial. http://docs.rainmeter.net/tips/rss-feed-tutorial, so you could build a smaller one that suits your needs. UniNews uses regular expression substitutes, you should keep that in mind if you are going to build your own.
