more newsfeed's



  • hey,
    i wanna more newsfeeds than ones, i think, that under the calender is space for 2 newsfeeds and under the weather is space for 2newsfeeds (or more if the space is big)
    so i think that i use the modul 4x for left and for right, but if i use top_left/right
    the module with the same position will change the size
    and if i use bottom_left and bottom_right and both are long then they will overlap

    i think i use top left for vokabuleries and top right for my train connections (so i have the problem solved with the size and overlap)
    but then i have only 3 position for my newsreader (without overlap)
    any idea?



  • @geeflaxx Don’t forget that you can specify more than one feed per instance of the module. So you could run one instance of the module that displays two feeds in middle_center and another instance of the module in bottom_center that shows the other two feeds.

    Like so:

    {
            module: 'newsfeed',
            position: 'middle_center', 
            config: {
                feeds: [
                    {
                        title: "Feed  #1",
                        url: "http://www.nytimes.com/services/xml/rss/nyt/HomePage.xml",
                    },
                    {
                        title: "Feed #2",
                        url: "http://whatever.com/news/rss",
                    },
                ]
            }
        },
    {
            module: 'newsfeed',
            position: 'bottom_center',
            config: {
                feeds: [
                    {
                        title: "Feed #3",
                        url: "http://www.kittennews.com/news/feed/",
                    },
                    {
                        title: "Feed #4",
                        url: "http://feeds.midgetpr0n.com/events/fresh/rss",
                    },
                ]
            }
        }


  • @geeflaxx on top of the suggestion of @bhepler you can also make chnges to your cumstom.css to limit the width of the newsfeed
