    Moodle and BBC Education feed

    Has anyone got the BBC Education Feed to display within Moodle? I'm using the link I found and it's coming up as Error.

    I am using http://newsrss.bbc.co.uk/rss/newsonl...t_page/rss.xml.

    I am using BBC News - Home.
    Try this RSS feed for the Education News on the BBC website.

    I tried another RSS Feed and it didn't error so it's the BBC.

    Try it on your Moodle site at present?

    I am sure I read somewhere that if you are unable to show RSS feeds if you disable the global search it helps?...(not sure if that is helpful here?) BTW we use the Newsround RSS feed and have no issues.

    What happens when you guys go to /admin/cron.php do you see an error relating to the BBC feed?

    its only 1.7+ I think. Mainly coz it was a trial for the school and they are using a different VLE now. I'll check my demo version in a bit for you.
