Re: Help with fixing channel settings

Ok, I'll see what I can do with Google App Engine and get back to you.

Yeah, the Dropbox login splash page that comes up sometimes may be an issue.

Put a Print statement before the Parse so you can see the exact Xml that you are passing to the parser.

If you want somewhere other than dropbox to host your Xml files, you could try Google App Engine. I use it for some of my Xml file hosting and web sites. It works well and it's free (up to 1GB per day of incoming and outgoing bandwidth, and 1GB of code and static file storage), although there's quite a bit of a learning curve to set it up.

Yeah, that seems too confusing for me Smiley Sad

I'm going to try Google Drive

Re: Help with fixing channel settings

I was able to successfully host my xml files on github after trying dropbox and google drive to no avail. It is free if you don't mind the xml be available for the public to see. I am able to host the images for the channel on dropbox without issue. I was forced to do this after my ISP decided to obliterate the personal web space I had hosted on for many a year. Uggghhh
