I am playing with some of the information I learned at the FamilySearch Developers Conference. I've included code above to get the Record Search news that is displayed in the little box in Record Search. Unlike Record Search, I allow the text to be selected and copied to your clipboard.
I'm still learning various reasons why it isn't working for most of you. Because I am calling from my website to the Record Search website for information, your browser could get very nervous. Involving two websites can be unsafe if one of the websites is not trustworthy. But since Record Search is trustworthy, I need to figure out how to make browsers happy.
Thank you Logan for help making this widget work with non-Internet Explorer browsers.
