How do I do this ?

Submitted by Neil on Mon, 2005-12-19 17:00 in

Hi all,

Heres my problem, I want a certain amount of news topics from a rss feed show on a page,
works well in mozilla, but the dreaded IE don`t like it, could someone please tell me where i`m going wrong, heres the code,I am new to php, so apoligies beforehand for not knowing to much about this language. As you can see rss_item is a css class which gives font, colour etc. IE wont pick it up as a href link ?

"<ul id='rss_items' >";
"<li class='rss_item' <a class='rss_item' href='".$item["LINK"]."'>".$item["TITLE"]."</a></li>";
$url "http://";

Hi Neil,

It may be a cut'n'paste error, but I notice that your opening <li> is not closed...! You have:

print "<li class='rss_item' <a class='rss_item' href='".$item["LINK"]."'>".$item["TITLE"]."</a></li>";
missing > here ------------^

Try this with the close angle bracket added:

print "<li class='rss_item'><a class='rss_item' href='".$item["LINK"]."'>".$item["TITLE"]."</a></li>";

...see if that makes a difference...

Too many hours hacking PHP and HTML I guess :)

PS - I notice there is also a double http:// in your $url variable...
