Are you setting these values in Settings.inc?

; Change DoMyName to "1" and set MyName and MyPassword to flag "your" posts.
DoMyName=1
MyName=YourLoginName
MyPassword=YourPassword
MyColor=255,222,161,255

It is important that you don't comment our or remove ANY variables from this file. If you don't want to flag "your" posts, you use:

; Change DoMyName to "1" and set MyName and MyPassword to flag "your" posts.
DoMyName=0
MyName=XXXXXX
MyPassword=XXXXXX
MyColor=255,222,161,255

Fail:
; Change DoMyName to "1" and set MyName and MyPassword to flag "your" posts.
DoMyName=0
;MyName=YourLoginName
;MyPassword=YourPassword
MyColor=255,222,161,255

Fail:
; Change DoMyName to "1" and set MyName and MyPassword to flag "your" posts.
DoMyName=0
MyName=
MyPassword=
MyColor=255,222,161,255

For a test, change it to:

; Change DoMyName to "1" and set MyName and MyPassword to flag "your" posts.
DoMyName=0
MyName=XXXXXX
MyPassword=XXXXXX
MyColor=255,222,161,255

and restart Rainmeter.

If you go here: http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/dencoder/ you can URLEncode your password. Then use that in MyPassword in Settings.inc.

In reality, the "password" field is only really needed by a handful of Rainmeter developers that have access to a private forum area that we use to blame each other and talk about each other's mothers when there is a bug. For most folks, just setting the MyName field, and leaving "XXXXXX" for the MyPassword field, works just fine. You don't really need to "log on" to get the feed, or search the results for your name.

If you do not put your own password or you replace it with an incorrect password like "XXXXXXX", you'll get the "famous" error in the lua file.

This is what happened to me.

Doesn't for me, but then WebParser is a bit strange about how it uses some cookie information from Internet Explorer, and it can be pretty "persistent" once it connects to a site that you are in fact logged onto. Best to URLEncode your password if it contains characters other than a-zA-Z0-9 I guess.

Really nice work. When I get better at this I would like to change the style of the skin to something that's a better fit for the rest of my skins.

Also, I was able to get it to work the the original file just by making the recommended changes in the first few threads. Big time cool sir. When I grow up I want to be a Rainmeter programmer just like you (I'm 63) <grin>
