4. For the Title, i put Headlines.
5. Look at the preview and Direct Feed URLs, it is not your own feed right? Don't worry, just IGNORE it! We will change it later ;)
6. Click the Generate Code button. You now have the code for your dynamic animated headlines widget.

7. Look in the code, find the below section

 <script type="text/javascript">
function LoadDynamicFeedControl() {
var feeds = [
{title: 'Blogging Tips',
url: ''
{title: 'PC Tips',
url: ''
{title: 'Rare and Weird',
url: ''
{title: 'Photos',
url: ''
var options = {
stacked : true,
horizontal : false,
title : "Headlines"

8. You can now change the feed URLs in red to your own feeds. But where can you get your label / category post feeds instead your normal blog feed?
