Trouble getting RSS feed to work

Post by megajam02 »

Hey guys, I'm a total newbie to creating Rainmaker skins, and I'm working on my first one after having gone through the tutorial.

I created a very basic skin using the RSS plugin. When I did the tutorial and subsequently created my own, the feed worked, everything displaying and linking correctly. Sometime this afternoon it stopped working, and I'm not sure what I did.

Oddly enough, almost any other RSS feed works in the skin, and if I take the URL of the feed and copy and paste it into a browser, I get information.

Here is the link I'm using for my RSS feed:
http://southcarolina.rivals.com/rss2feed.asp?SID=1017&type=R&sport=1

I'm lost and am hoping someone can give me an idea of where to proceed from here.

Thanks.

There must have been something wrong with the website, because this morning the skin started working again.

Sometimes, if you try to get the information too often (Refresh a lot) they'll temporarily ban you.
