    Create RSS feed

    We are looking at installing signage software around the school and we have decided on Xibo I have everthing working but the question i have is

    We want to have a scrolling daily bulliten that the admin staff can edit/alter we do not want to give them access to xibo even with restricted access things could go wrong so what i thought was create a rss/ticker feed that reads the content of a txt file and displays that.

    Xibo can either show a rss feed or webpage how am i best to do this

    I can use asp or php or html on our server
    Thanks
    Stu

    WordPress › Blog Tool and Publishing Platform

    Its a free blogging piece of software you install on the server, extremely easy to do.

    You can create accounts for various people and allow them to post information to it,

    When viewing the blog look for the RSS link on the page. On mine its right at the bottom right

    Use the RSS Link from that in Xibo for the ticker
