    Hi, I don’t know if this is the sort of thing you can help people with but here goes.

    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

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    Have you tried just dropping the RSS feed into an RSS widget and seeing how it displays?

    Please make your title for the widget shorter.

    Hmmm…it doesn’t look great I have to admit. I’m not sure if it is down to the feed or the theme you’re using. Different themes display content in different ways.

    aha – thanks drmike – i didn’t put a title and it was using the feed title by default.

    problem solved – thank you all.
