Try this RSS Reader:

Includes source code and caching...

Is there anyway to get the source for this. When I do an import to version 6, it does not copy the source files.

I'm having some issues formatting the "pubdate". I would like to do something similar to this:

<%# GetDateTime("pubdate", "MMMM dd, yyyy") %>

Is it possible to format the date?

I got this to work in version 6 by doing the following:

add without quotes "using CMS.Compatibility;" to line 24 of CMSWebParts\Viewers\RSSReader.ascx.cs

and change line 223 from "CMSContext.BaseCacheKey" to "CacheHelper.BaseCacheKey"

In version 6, I get the following error:
[Error loading the WebPart 'RSSReader']
c:\Websites\CMS6\CMSWebParts\Viewers\RSSReader.ascx.cs(222): error CS0117: 'CMS.CMSHelper.CMSContext' does not contain a definition for 'BaseCacheKey'

Is this compatiable with 5.5r2? commented on


I'm a newbie to Kentico. I am interested in this control but when I look to do the import, it says its for an older version. I am on the new 5.5, can you advise if I am ok to import this package or do I need an updated version?
thanks in advance

Happened to me: You need to un-zip the file. In it you will find some documentation and the actual web part that can be imported....

I receive this error in version 4.1 when I attempt to import the webpart:
Error during temporary files creation. Original exception: [ImportProvider.CreateTemporaryFiles]: Data not found or the package is not a valid export package. (C:\inetpub\wwwroot\gnweb\App_Data\CMSTemp\ImportExport\Data)

ralph commented on

I have it installed on this site:

It is running 4.1 and it works. A bit slow, but it might be that it is the blog that is so slow....

rdiepenbrock commented on

Will there be a release that works with version 4.1?

BTW, real live example can be viewed here:

Excellent web part. Does not delay or break the display of a page due to a slow connection to a blog, but can be configured, so that a loading bar is shown until the data is available.

Can be easily styled with css.

But true, would be nice if more than one feed could be shown on the same page

jasonj-sabercontrols commented on

This control is very nice, however, you can only use one instance per page.

Oops, I didn't realize that the zip was inside of the zip. Got it imported and installed, now to get it configured. Has anyone tried this to pull in a Google calendar?

eyesea69-gmail commented on

I tried to import this webpart into a website on a local install running on Visual Studio and I got the following error:
Error during temporary files creation. Original exception: [ImportProvider.CreateTemporaryFiles]: Data not found or the package is not a valid export package. (E:\les\websites\cityofsmithville\Demo Fix retread\App_Data\CMSTemp\ImportExport\Data)
I tried redownloading it and repeating the import process with fresh files but got the same results every time. I really could use this, but can't get it working.

masonc-fayobserver commented on

Great web part and just what I needed.
