Display wikipedia-"on this day"-events in a list 5 Years, 11 Months ago  
Hi again,
I altered the RSS-Script to display the "On this day..."-Events. I have them displayed as a "list", just like the rss-feeds.


The only thing that bothers me is that they are cut if they exceed a certain length and I have to go for the tooltip.

Before I had them in a list I had them in regular text-tags, but that was totaly messed up (they didn't start at the top-left-corner of the window, if they were too long for the window they were cut, they were text-aligned centered etc)

Which would be a suitable way to display them? I kinda like the way they are now, just without the cutting and the tooltips!

sure,
it's just a few tweaks to the rss-script (it still sais "Rss" in the top left corner cause I coudln't be botherd, I copied the xml-file par for par and just changed the names).
i put the variables for the skin.xml in a textfile in the zip-file cause this board wouldn't let me display tags properly

PS: just works for the english wikipedia, though it's very easy to adjust the script to display foreign wikipedias

Hi,

I can't get this to work - what is the URL of the feed itself?

Thanks
