RSS Feed restarting from begin

I have 6 layouts in a campaign.

In the bottom of each layout I put a RSS feed.

When the layout change and a new layout is loaded, the RSS feed start to load all feeds from start again.

I´d like to have only one RSS feed to all layouts such as the feeds don´t restart from begin all times I change the layout.

I am a newbie with xibo cms. I have read all documents thtat I find in the google and xibo site, but I dont know how to do it.

Is it possible?

Regards, Luiz

Hi Luiz,

That configuration isn’t possible at the moment i’m afraid - when the layout reloads the entire screen is refreshed. We are looking into having a special “overlay” layout, which can be scheduled independently of the normal schedule so that you can have an area on the screen refreshing independently of the others - this may or may not be in 1.8.

Thank you for your response, Mr Dan,

Do you advice some workaround solution to use rss feeds in multiple layouts without restart the feed from begin?


Unfortunately I do not - there is no workaround at present.

A layout is specifically designed and treated as a complete “unit” of content - it will start and finish as a group. It will also be validated as a group, etc, etc.

I don’t see this changing as its a core function (and requirement in many peoples installations).

The “overlay” layout is an extension to that which would allow you to leave an empty space on your normal layouts (all 6 of them, and then have a 7th layout which contains content only for the “space” you left in the others)… the overlay then plays across layout changes.


It will solves the problem.
