Hello Guys,

I have been making an RSS widget for the band Barenaked Ladies blog. I have used the widget program Wcode from widgetfactor.com. But I have problems getting the widget to connect to the right blog entry, when I click on a headline in the widget. As I have NO experience with javascript or anything, I don't really know where the problem lies. All I can tell you is that, when I have clicked a headline, then the url that Safari connects to looks like this:

http://www.bnlblog.com/entry.asp?dDate=2/8/2006%09

You can find the widget here if you would like to take at look at it:

I think that the %09 is the problem, beacuase if I erase that, then it goes straight to the correct entry.

So if anyone can help me identify what %09 stands for, I would really appreciate it!!

Sincerely yours
Thomas Detlefsen

Remove the tab in your code. The %09 is an ASCII value for a tab character, the way %20 is a space (if you create an HTML file with a space in the name and open it in your browser, you will see the %20 where the space would normally be).

Basically, you have one extra character somewhere in it all.

Yeah I figured it was something like that. Now I can't find that tab you were talking about, where exactly should it be? in the html code or the javascript?

Thanks for the help! Smile
