Displaying feeds using javascript

I've been very pleased to find a site which gives you scripts for displaying feeds using javascript. They even let you run the scripts from their own site. I wanted to tweak them so I copied them and run them off our own site. You've got quite a few options when you call the scripts, but I wanted to do a couple more tweaks:
  • Images with relative URLs in the feed (though not invalid, but not advised) needed the domain adding to the start.
  • Displaying the first paragraph of the feed, as the feed is normally full text.
The code is very clear and those were fairly easy changes to drop in.

New NetCommunity donation pages

We have moved our main donation pages over to NetCommunity. They are all linked from our donate to a project page. The Blackbaud web designer did a good job of reproducing the layout from our site and it was fairly straightforward to create more pages with the different branding for the different campaigns on our site.

Now we've replaced existing pages, it's time to do some new stuff...
