So, I have a couple feelings on this.
1. The way that we do Layer.GeoRSS right now is an unfortunate
situation: if we were to 'do it all over again', we would do it very
similar to the new examples/sundials.html, by having a single layer
that wrapped up the data display and a selectfeature control to open
a popup. I *highly* recommend looking at this example: It's a few
more lines of code than setting up a layer.GeoRSS, but it's *way*
more extensible, since you have complete control over just about
2. If you don't like this, and want to use layer.georss with
framedclouds, then you can do this at this time:
I think this should work as a first order approximation. However,
there could be problems with this, and it's not really 'supported'
because we don't do it in our tests or examples, so it is, at the
moment, somewhat at your own risk.
I still recommend #1 strongly for anyone doing work with GeoRSS for the
long term -- your next question will be "how do I use different icons
for entries from different categories?", and that one can't be answered
nearly so easily.
Good luck, and Best Regards,
