Did you mean that you need to show  news with rss  webpart and enable the scrolling  in the RSS webpart?

If it was ,you can try to use javascript  to enable the scrolling of div. Because the RSS webpart  is rendered as div element.


<divid="rssFeedWPDiv_ctl00_m_g_0eeb8ed7_7498_49ee_996d_f4fc47639725"style="padding-top: 5px;">

Javascript Demo:

   window.onload = function() {
  var ele = document.getElementById("divTest");
  ele.style.height = "100px";
  ele.style.overflow = "auto";

You can get more richer javascript demo from the following website.

Hi Mak,

I think you want Marque effect in your RSS.....

for that you need to create a Custom RSS Reader which internally uses HTML's marque to display contents...

Scenario: I have configured web.config file with proxy to have rss feeds from external source.RSS web part works fine for one of the proxy used in the organization.There are more than one proxy used in the organization.I am yet to test with other proxies.

1) Do I needs need to make any other config or any change to ensure nothing else breaks ? Any Checks I can perform?

2) How do I configure multiple proxies in the web.config at the same time?


In the RSS Viewer tool pane, paste the URL for the RSS Feed into the RSS Feed URL box.

How do I use this web part to have more than one RSS Feed displayed?  I can only put one Feed address/url here.  Then I have to add the RSS Viewer Webpart again to add another RSS Feed URL address.  What's up with that?


I set up a feed in the RSS viewer web part.  It looks fine in Internet Explorer; however, <!-- /* Font Definitions */ @font-face {font-family:"Cambria Math"; panose-1:2 4 5 3 5 4 6 3 2 4; mso-font-charset:0; mso-generic-font-family:roman; mso-font-pitch:variable; mso-font-signature:-536870145 1107305727 0 0 415 0;} @font-face {font-family:Calibri; panose-1:2 15 5 2 2 2 4 3 2 4; mso-font-charset:0; mso-generic-font-family:swiss; mso-font-pitch:variable; mso-font-signature:-520092929 1073786111 9 0 415 0;} @font-face {font-family:Verdana; panose-1:2 11 6 4 3 5 4 4 2 4; mso-font-charset:0; mso-generic-font-family:swiss; mso-font-pitch:variable; mso-font-signature:536871559 0 0 0 415 0;} /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-unhide:no; mso-style-qformat:yes; mso-style-parent:""; margin-top:0in; margin-right:0in; margin-bottom:10.0pt; margin-left:0in; line-height:115%; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:11.0pt; font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"; mso-fareast-font-family:Calibri; mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman";} .MsoChpDefault {mso-style-type:export-only; mso-default-props:yes; font-size:10.0pt; mso-ansi-font-size:10.0pt; mso-bidi-font-size:10.0pt; mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri; mso-fareast-font-family:Calibri; mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri;} @page Section1 {size:8.5in 11.0in; margin:1.0in 1.0in 1.0in 1.0in; mso-header-margin:.5in; mso-footer-margin:.5in; mso-paper-source:0;} div.Section1 {page:Section1;} --> in FireFox if i try to refresh the page, the RSS feeds won't restore. All I see is the bars that indicate that they are refreshing. The only way I have found to get rid of this is to click on "home".

Any idea what might be causing this - and how it can be fixed?


Hi, I've this problem in RSS Viewer.
If you select the "Enable Asynchronous Automatic Refresh?" checkbox, the Web Part will not render properly, but will give an error: "An unexpected error occured while rendering the webpart."

Anybody ever had this problem?



Hello All:

We recently did an upgrade from 2007 to 2010 with great success. One of the things we have been working through has to deal with the RSS Viewer Web Part. Currently, we have "Crabby Office Lady" streaming to that webpart and images from the feed would display just fine in 2007. Now that we are in 2010, the text comes over just fine, but the images just display a placeholder red "X" image now.

Any ideas why this may have broken?



Can Shareponit's RSS Viewer web part handle multiple feeds or just one feed?  If it can handle multiple feeds, how do I enter the feeds and keep them seperated?

Hi Everyone,

Hello All,

I added the Rss Viewer web part and encountered this error '

The requested RSS feed could not be displayed. Please verify the settings and url for this feed. If this problem persists, please contact your administrator.

I'm pretty sure the RSS feed url works since I tested with a rss reader client, can anyone advise please.

Thanks in advance.


This started out as a simple proof of concept but may be a bug.  I have added 3 RSS Viewer web parts to a page with the following URLs


and everything works perfectly / each part renders as expected. I then added each of these URLs to a links list and then added the links list web part to the page.  I selected one of the RSS Viewer parts, chose connections -> “Get Feed URL from” -> “Links List” and then chose URL as the connection field.  What is happening is that the SharePoint Team Blog link works great, the MSDN link throws a SecurityException and the Yahoo link does nothing (no error in the log and nothing displayed).  I tried this on two different servers on different network & ISPs both with no firewalls in the way.  This appears to be an issue with how the web part handles a connection compared to the straight web part property.

Any thoughts or someone else verifying the issue on their server would be appreciated.




When I want to use the XML Viewer web part and set the XML URL to an RSS feed from a SharePoint list I get this error:

Cannot retrieve the URL specified in the XML Link property. For more assistance, contact your site administrator.

The URL I'm trying looks like this:

I've seen blogpost that discuss this and they say that this is because of a security issue and that I have to enable anonymous access in order to display the RSS feed.
Is this the only option there is ? I don't want to enable anonymous access on my SharePoint site. Why can't SharePoint just request the RSS feed with the credentials of the logged in user ?

Or am I missing something here?


I have an RSS feed from MSN on my SharePoint page.  Which works fine in a browser.  When I added ?mobile=1 at the end of the URL to emulate mobile view, RSS feeds appeared as text and not hyperlinks.

Has anyone seen this before?  Is there a fix/configuration for this?

Thank you.

I have a page in an OOTB SharePoint environment with 7 rss viewer web parts (if you want, you can test it using these rss feeds http://www.google.com/support/news/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=59255). It works fine in IE8/9, Chrome and Firefox, but in IE7 some of them keeps loading and never render. Also, there are some derived problems, editing the page and so on. I've been doing some tests and I've find that the problem is with the number of web parts. Have any of you experience the same problem?

I have added RSS viewer web part to a page and provided the following URL (REST service).


I am getting the following error.

"ProtocolError occured trying to complete the request. The server returned a status code of : BadRequest and the status description is : "Bad Request""

The above URL works fine in my browser and displays the RSS feed. What am I doing wrong here ?



I am looking for the RSS Viewer web part in WSS 3.0 to include external news feeds, however in the web part list there is no reference to the "RSS Viewer" - is this available in sharepoint services?  or is there another webpart available that will offer this functionality.

Looking through the web it mentions that you cant include a RSS feed within a WSS 3.0 site without creating your own webpart?  is this correct?

Many thanks in advance for your help with this

I had created a custom RSS reader webpart. The columns needed are title, description, start date, end date, location and description. Below is the part of xsl. 


<xsl:template name="DrawPosts">

 <xsl:param name="items"/>

      <xsl:for-each select="$items">

        <xsl:sort select="pubDate" order="descending" />

        <xsl:if test="position() &lt; 4">

          <div style="margin:6px;">


              <a href="{link}">

                <xsl:value-of select="title"/>



            <br />

            <xsl:value-of select="description" />

            <xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;</xsl:text>

            <br />


              <a href="{link}">

                View Event Details






    <div style="float:right">

      View All Events




The description node in the above xsl displays all the columns. Is there a way to parse individual columns in the description node ?
