RSS Widget not reading feed

  1. Hi

    I'm having some issues with setting up an RSS widget using a BBC RSS feed. (See http://footballpredictionleague.wordpress.com)

    The feed I'm trying to use is :

    feed://newsrss.bbc.co.uk/rss/sportonline_uk_edition/football/rss.xml

    Which is the RSS version of this :

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/default.stm

    When I put the feed:// into the RSS widget, it tells me that "An error has occured; the feed is probably down. Try again later."

    Anyone help me out here - I've never managed to get a feed to work.

    J

  2. Greets:

    Use http:// instead of feed://

    Granted the feed:// is probably more correct but the http:// worked fine for me.

    http: //newsrss.bbc.co.uk/rss/sportonline_uk_edition/football/rss.xml

    A space was added after the colon to get it to show up here. Remove it when you use it.

    Hope this helps,
