RSS Lodge feeds not showing

Postby Mudslide03 » Tue Sep 11, 2012 9:46 am

I'm running MLserver4/Mainlobby4 with the Lodge graphics package.
I installed the RSS app and the Events show that it is updating.

I am not seeing any feeds on the main page where Margaret has the CNN Headline News Feeds section.

Thanks

Since the time the Lodge scenes were released the RSS app has been updated and it is now creating new server variables. This is why you are not seeing the feeds. You'll have to update the server variables on the scenes. The biggest change was that the RSS variables now have _{{clientname}} appended to them to make browsing feeds by client possible.

Thanks Dave,

I thought the Lodge scenes were update to work with Mainlobby 4.

Should I add that clientname to the MLServeCmd?

No there is an RSS command for selecting the active feed that takes care of that. See the new RSS commands using Command Builder. The Sample Client scenes has the new RSS scenes. You will see all the new commands and variables in those scenes.

Margaret updated the Lodge package so RSS works now.
