Hello,

My first time here. I have an issue with RSS2HTML on our website, of which I've been the webmaster for a few weeks now.
We have a Picasa feed on our website, but somehow it doesn't show correctly anymore. Here is what it looks like now: http://www.hondacx500.nl/html/rss.php. I see coding but no photographs.
It has gone wrong since this morning when I changed the picasa url from picasaweb.google.nl into picasaweb.google.com (in the code it's now like this: $XMLfilename = "http://picasaweb.google.com/data/feed/base/user/stamtafels?alt=rss&kind=album&hl=nl";). I had to change the url because the .nl url didn't work anymore at all, I guess Google has changed this.

Where is it going wrong?

Thank you

We are using rss2html.php version 3.15 2010/03/16 22:31:38.
And the PHP versions that is running is 5.1.6.

I just downloaded and installed the most recent version of rss2html.php (which is the same version as mentioned above) just to check if maybe my predecessor has modified the file, but that makes no difference, it's still going wrong (check http://www.hondacx500.nl/html/temp/rss2html.php).

I am wondering if this is a

I am wondering if this is a rss2html problem at all. Hoping one of you out there can help me out.

Thanks.

I checked the feed and the script and both seem to be working properly. What's odd is that I fed your feed through a copy of the script on my end and it displayed the images properly, which leads me to think it may be an issue with the template.

If you would, please post the direct link to the template you're using with FeedForAll.

Thanks for your reply.

The template we are using is http://www.hondacx500.nl/html/rss_template_picasa.html.

As said in post #3 I also downloaded and installed the default files. The url to that template is http://www.hondacx500.nl/html/temp/sample-template.html.

But both show the same problem.

Direct link to our rss2html script http://www.hondacx500.nl/html/rss.php (file name differs from default name, I don't know why)

Now that's funny. I uploaded the files to my private webserver (PHP 5.5.10) and there the images are displayed properly. You already found that out on your side earlier. So my problem is more like an environmental problem rather than a rss2html issue if you're asking me. Like said before the PHP version we use is 5.1.6, which is an old version.

But still I'm hoping this problem can be solved within the rss2html code, it would be much easier for me than upgrading to a higher PHP version, not knowing what the impact of that will be to our entire website.

Can you think of something?

Thanks.

Interesting... we have something we'd like you to test, please.

If you would, try converting both of the below links as feed sources (instead of http://picasaweb.google.com/data/feed/base/user/stamtafels?alt=rss&kind=album&hl=nl) and let us know if either feed is displayed properly.

Thanks. Okay, so here is what I did:

In http://www.hondacx500.nl/html/rss_test.php I have:
$XMLfilename = "http://www.notepage.net/download/dev/picasatest.xml";

In http://www.hondacx500.nl/html/rss_test2.php I have:
$XMLfilename = "http://www.notepage.net/download/dev/picasatest2.xml";

I'm still using the same template.

Unfortunately it's still not working in neither of both cases. I am doubting if it would be adviceable to ask my hosting provider what's going on.

One more thing to try:

In your template try changing

<table class="picasa">

to just

<table>

Maybe the CSS is messing it up.

Thanks, I will try that.

In the meanwhile I went back to the very beginning, before I started this thread. The Picasa-feed failed with an error message saying "Unable to open RSS Feed http://picasaweb.google.nl/data/feed/base/user/stamtafels?alt=rss&kind=album&hl=nl with error HTTP ERROR: 302, exiting ". When I opened the feed directly in my browser I saw it was redirected to a .com address but the feed and photos were displayed properly. That's why I changed the feed's url from .nl into .com in the rss2html.php file. And that's when the 2nd problem started (messed up layout and photos missing) and the reason why I started this thread.

This evening I did a test with my private Photobucket account, it has an rss feed option. I put the feed's url into rss2html.php and uploaded the file. And guess what happened? I got a HTTP ERROR 302 message just like I got with the Picasa feed! 302 has something to do with redirection. And there is something having problems with handling that. Is it rss2html? Or PHP? Or...? Or...? I have a strong feeling our problem is caused by our environment, but I can't get the finger on it. Something is redirecting something to somewhere and something else can't handle that.

Please feel free to give me some more tips if you have them. But thanks a lot so far for your cooperation, really appreciate that.

Also, can you send us a copy of the HTML source for that webpage? There may be a clue in there.

Send it to support@notepage.com
