Yeah, that's a horrible, unpleasant workaround. Here's a much better way I finally figured out

Go to https://feed.mikle.com and configure your RSS feed there, using your Drupal RSS link. Then create a php/HTML forum block and paste the code they give you. Select html as the content type.

You have to create a free account to get the code so create your account before configuring your widget.

You can also use the rss feed widget maker at http://www.surfing-waves.com but not if your site is using SSL because their SSL isn't configured properly.

Both offer the option to link to an external CSS if you want to be extraparticular about your styling.

I've used both and they're both good, never went down.

Have fun

Have fun. Let me know if you have any problems. I was extraparticular about the formatting and linked the widget to a special css template in VBulletin. My readers LOVE having the feeds right there
