I was looking at making the subject scroll for long subjects, and ran out of time to play with the code, and have not had a chance to get back to it.

Then I come here and actually find posts!

Anyone want to count the number of characters in that title?

It is as large as it can be....

Heh, I was looking at making mine scroll, but its not that easy... By the way, out of good faith I counted how many characters it was... its 85 characters long... Scrolling may be a little difficult, but the widget that shows the current iTunes song playing does it quite well.

Scrolling's quite easy, actually.

<text data="Look, ma, I'm scrolling!">
<name>textScroll</name>
<scrolling>autoLeft</scrolling>
</text>

What I meant by it is that adding it to your widget is difficult as meddling with the code in how it takes the data often causes the widget to stop working, I only JUST (as in 3 seconds ago) realized how to allow myself to click so I go to the Town Hall instead of the specfic thread :D

I'm not sure what you mean. Are you referring to the regular expressions that grab and parse data from the front page (they're pretty delicate).

Thats what I was supposed to do, but I tried changing it so I made a new Array and in the array I had the forum numbers and tried setting the targetURL to "http://www.ehmac.com/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=forum&f=" and then put in the right number so it goes. But in the end it didn't matter as sticking a simple if statement in the gotoTown() function, I was able allow the user to determine whether to go to the thread or the area where the thread is.

who all is working on a widget?

and what kind of widget is it? Or are you all just modding the ehMac widget?

If you want to check out my pathetic attempt, my other post got buried under a whack of monster threads
