Hi All we have a news website and want to have a scrolling slider that is 'fed' by an rss feed. is it possible to do this with the feature section? or is there a plugin anyone has used successfully? thanks

It can pull in category posts, if you used a 'splog' plugin to pull in the feed and add the posts to a category the feature slider could use them that way.

sounds good - just to clarify what is a 'splog' plugin? if i get you right we would create a category "news" and then the feature slider could be set to display that category? would that change be made in the php? thanks

No change needed, the feature slider can already use categories as a source. A 'splog' is an automated blog that just pulls rss feeds and posts them as news, primarily to pull traffic in. There are a few automated posting bot plugins out there.
