    Hi all,
    After going through CNN's html code with a fine tooth comb, I managed to make this work. Thanks anyways.

    Okay gang.
    Here is what I am trying to do. I have got the CNN Headlines working perfectly withing Homeseer (and subsequently in MainLobby as well). But I am unsure how to properly modify the CNN Headlines code to take the link for the news article (and the necessary code to make it show the 'Printer-Friendly' Version, which works really well) and create a simple redirect html page saved on the local computer.

    For Example:
    Headline 3 (w93) contains:
    "Fierce fighting rages in Somali capital"

    I understand the coding enough to make a modification to create the 'printer-friendly' url
    Headline URL 3 (x93) contains:
    http://cnn.law.printthis.clickabilit...785/index.html

    As you can tell from the '?', '=', '&' and the '~' Mainlobby doesn't respond well to this being directly inputted as a default page. However the workaround would be to have a local page that redirects to the above URL, and then there wouldn't be the same problem.

    So any ideas how to, or at least what code is necssary to create a text file and save it as an html file from notepad within the CNN Breaking news code?

    Any ideas/suggestions/comments much appreciated.

    Thank you so very much in advance

    I tried to run the CNNHeadline.txt script and am having problems. This is what shows up in the log.


    Code:
    no previous installation has been detected, starting setup ...
    I noticed that the script makes a call for settings.ini. Where do I get that file, it was not in the zip file.

    TRhanks.

    ****Updated CNNHeadlines Script ****

    New CNNHeadline.txt file added to the Scripts Library. The XML feed that has worked for months has recenlty started delivering a trojan to the machine if the XML feed URL was opened in a browser. I updated the script to use the newly available feeds that CNN is now offering themselves.
