    This is a widget I downloaded for free, and changed it a bit so it would get my RSS feed instead. However, this one won't get any of the RSS feed, and I was wondering if anyone knew why.

    Widget: http://www.dangerfox.com/Dangerfox.wdgt.zip
    RSS feed, for reference: RSS.php

    Maybe, I'm just stupid, but most RSS feeds are XML files, aren't they?

    Erm, I think they are .rss files... for example,

    feed://slashdot.org/index.rss

    That makes a ton of sense, now that I think about that. I need to find or make a wdgt that will interpret .php files. Any ideas?

    RSS feeds ARE just XML files, the file that you posted is an XML file even though it has a .php extension
