We are currently using version 1.2.2 and need to upgrade to version 1.7.8.
Question is can we update the host server from 1.2.2 to 1.7.8 or does it need a fresh install / rebuild?
Thank you in advance.
Question brought up from answer on thread from EPokoly on 7/26/2016 = Xibo version 1.2.2. Need help with RSS Feed ticker
Answer from “dan” on EPokoly thread 7/26/2016 =
The duration is the length of time the entire RSS feed will be shown on screen - i.e. 900 seconds for all items. As far as I recall (it was 5 years ago) 1.2.2 does not have any way to select a number of items from a feed. Of course this functionality is in the latest version, and perhaps even a few versions before that.
I think you are left with 2 choices:
•use a third party tool to pre-parse your feed and select the items you want (something on this list perhaps: Of course this functionality is in the latest version, and perhaps even a few versions before that.)
•upgrade Xibo to a version that supports selecting N items from a feed (1.7.8 would be a good choice)
