A newbie question but I hope someone can help.

I need to return data from a Web API. I have set up the connection by entering the URL into the Feed URL box and set the Type to Public Feeds and the source to custom. I then see the list of fields available that were returned from the API.

When I add them to the page they do not display. If I test the feed I can see data but it is returned in a .js file which has to be downloaded and opened in notepad before I can see the data. I think that this is the problem but is there a facility to display data returned in this format or am I going about this in the wrong way?

I also have a data binding set up to a MySQL database and this is returning data on my web page without a problem.

Hi Teodor

Thanks for your response. I have created a test page here using the DMX extension and have a loopd section and a couple of individual fields listed but the page is just blank.

I have also created a second page showing the raw Json result of the feed not using the dmx extension here

Hello John,
It seems the json returned from this API is not properly formatted, which causes an error when parsing the data on the page.
