I would like to use a sidebar text widget to display a running total the amount of money i have raised for a specific charity. The fundrasing page has an RSS feed so I was wondering if it is possible to somehow extract the amount from this and using some html show it in a text widget. the feed is here http://www.justgiving.com/rss/getfundraisingpage.asp?eventgivinggroupid=465283 Any ideas? Thanks. September 17, 2006 at 7:21 pm #29876 britishbullblogMember Have you tried just dropping the RSS feed into an RSS widget and seeing how it displays?

Different themes display content in different ways.
