I know this has been done, but I believe I've found a better way.

This is the song that never ends. It just goes on and on my friends. Some people started singing it not knowing what it was, and they'll continue singing it forever just because . . .

Nice job. Works great at 1680 with 300 for the item width and 15 for the speed. Works fine with Google News just plugged in.

If only I could measure the length of a string, I could make it a true marquee.

Open the ini in your favorite text editor. Under [Variables] change the URL to whatever you like, just remember to keep the "URL=" part. Save and refresh the skin.

I'm afraid that's not how it works. I will work on allowing multiple feeds.

Alright...I can either make it to allow for 3 RSS feeds and one Atom feed, each following the next in the marquee, or I can make it so that you click on buttons to change between feeds.
