Question Programmaticaly modify ticker

Is there a programmatic method to either edit the ticker's text or force it to update it's rss data? This can be with the API or otherwise. I'm trying to automatically update the ticker with relevant information and I think I've hit a brick wall.

GaryMthrfkinOak,

At this time there is no way to update the ticker automatically, it can only be done through Studio.

how? following the instructions and syntax in studio doesn't work ie...

[[rss|http://open.live.bbc.co.uk/weather/f...rvations.rss]]

and yes, I have added a carriage return both before and after this line

UKAnon,

The RSS function is a little finicky. It doesn't accept the URL you've supplied, but running that URL through feedburner and putting that into the ticker works just fine. Have you tried this as a solution?
