    I have a page with 4 feeds from news sources. All 4 have been working well for a couple months. But now the Newsmax feed link will not display in a Lightbox BUT will display in a New Window. The other 3 feeds show up just fine in the Lightbox and new window. here is the Newsmax URL http://www.newsmax.com/rss/Newsfront/16 . Any ideas?

    Hi @jkotuby,

    Have you enabled or set an SSL for your site recently?

    If your site is now running in https:// while that Feed Source is still in http:// there would be a problem displaying that feeds in the Lightbox.

    To see if this is an issue of yours, please open the page where you display the feed items and check if you have any errors in your Chrome DevTool Console.

    Please let us know your finding.

    I tried your suggestion of looking for errors in Chrome Devtools. Here is what I see for the links that will not display…

    Refused to display ‘https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/29/business/tesla-model-3-elon-musk.html’ in a frame because it set ‘X-Frame-Options’ to ‘deny’.

    It appears that many Feed publishers now want their content to appear in a Window so that users are “on” their website. A shame.

    If I set the Option in WPRSSAGGREGATOR to display in Window, can it be a pop-up window over my current window?

    Thank

    Hi @jkotuby,

    Did you mean to change the Open links behaviour option to New window?

    If so, it will open in new window/tab instead of a pop-up window.

    Both are different behaviors with the latter usually requires a Javascript in order to do that (which is not the case with this WP RSS Aggregator setting).

    Here are some links that might help you explain this:
