    Is there absolutely no way to install a widget for a live news feed on my WP.Com site, using a Javascript code?

    The blog I need help with is gadsdengazette.com.

    Hi Shawn,

    No, not with javascript anyways.

    have you considered just using the RSS widget?

    I would be good with the RSS widget, but all I have so far is a Javascript code for a specific outside newsfeed. I’m wishing I knew of a way to install that widget with a code WP would accept, by somehow altering the code I have. I’m just not sure how that works, or if it’s even possible. I guess I could ask the source if they’re able to convert the code to an RSS code that’s compatible with WP.com? They seem to be at a loss, and they are a major multimedia player. Thanks, James.

    what’s the news website URL?

    Also, would you mind pasting the javascript here? Maybe there’s something useful in it.

    https://www.newsmax.com, I’m guessing. Their url for their RSS feed network home page is https://www.newsmaxfeednetwork.com/AddWidget.aspx

    Here is a list of a ton of feed URL’s for newsmax.com categories.

    The Javascript is: <div id=”NmWg3462″></div><script type=”text/javascript” src=’https://cdn.nmcdn.us/js’></script><script type=”text/javascript”>NM.init ({WidgetID: 3462})</script>
