    Specific RSS Feed from ESPN

    UpstateWeb Level 1
      I am using CF 6.1 on Windows:

      ESPN sent me 4 URL's for sports score content that I can use for an affiliate website. The problem is, I can't figure out how to use it. I don't think it is a true RSS feed. Can someone tell me how to best use this information:

      http://proxy.espn.go.com/profile/affiliate/scores?sport=mlb&width=125

      Thanks in advance for your help,

          Yeah. ESPN probably can! Have you dropped them a line?

          I can confirm what you already know... it ain't RSS.

          If something a vendor provides for you doesn't work, the best thing to do
          is to contact the vendor.

            it is Javascript. pretty weird and soooo 2001 but anyhoos....

            include the link as per a normal JS external file (<script src="..."></script>) and create a div (or whatever) on your calling page. In the onload attribute of the window, call something like:P

            window.onload = init;

            funciton init () {
            postESPN('thescores);
            }

            ....

            <div id="thescores"></div>

            When you have it working do a bit of research on how to do cross browser onload events as the above window.onload is not best practice but just for demo

            The only real issue I could see is if ESPN are not setting the MIME type correctly but try the above first
