View Full Version : Attack of the RSS Ticker

2005-06-27, 12:06 AM
Help please...

I have tried a number of things, and perhaps I am being ignorant, but I cannot seem to disable the RSS ticker from the News reader plugin.

It continually says Dilbert, comic for date a, date b, date c...

I have some strange, unfounded, idea that it may relate to the video archiver plugin, as it seems that it started after installing this. Again, this may only be abd recollection. I have unchecked the video archiver plugin, and it still persists.

Thanks in advance for any ideas!

It probably is related. I think I may have posted a version of the main skin that had the ticker enabled. You can disable it by opening the file skin.xml (with Notepad) in the C:\Program Files\devnz\gbpvr\skin\Blue\main menu folder and deleting the line
<SpecialElement name="Panel" panelName="News" visible="true" transparency="0.9" loc="20,400" size="680,40"/>

Just change the word "true" to "false".

Thanks so much!

I changed the xml argument to false, and presto..the attack has subsided.
