  • The variables are generated based on your RSS feed, so it's unique

Common issues

1
RSS dynamic slide generator doesn't work

This could happen, when the allow_url_fopen isn't enabled on your server, which would allow the rss content to be asked down by your site. You can check it, if you would create a php file with this code in it:

<?php
if( ini_get('allow_url_fopen')){
   echo 'it is turned on';
} else {
   echo 'it isn\'t turned on';
}
?>
	

upload it to your ftp, and check it through your browser. If it will write out, that it's not turned on, then you should contact your server host, and ask them to turn it on.

2
RSS dynamic slide generator doesn't show image

An RSS feed is not equal to the content of a website! It is only part of the website's content, what the website's owner allowed for people to ask down through that RSS link. You should go to your RSS link, and you will see every single data there, which is accessible. If there is no image, then you won't have any images!

You can check your feed for instance, with Firefox, which shows it in a more user friendly way. Simply open the RSS link, like you would open any page.
