Have tried to get rss import to work for some time now, but had no 
luck. I decided to try kik RSS Feeds since it seems to work for someone 

But I have the same problem here as on the other extensions I have 
tried. The extension is installed, static css included,  filled in 
everything in the flexform, but there is noe rss news in mye frontend. 
The page source shows this:

<!--  CONTENT ELEMENT, uid:143/list [begin] -->
		<a id="c143"></a>
		<!--  Header: [begin] -->
			<div class="csc-header csc-header-n2"><h1>RSS</h1></div>
		<!--  Header: [end] -->
		<!--  Plugin inserted: [begin] -->
			<DIV id=kikrss_table><DIV class="kikrss_head_channel"></DIV><br><DIV 
class=kikrss_bodytext></DIV><br><DIV class=kikrss_bodytext><A href="" 
		<!--  Plugin inserted: [end] -->
	<!--  CONTENT ELEMENT, uid:143/list [end] -->

I have tried it on two different TYPO3 installations and with several 
feeds (also from typo3.org) Is there something basic or obvious I am
