RSS Manager Overview & How RSS Feeds Are Used

Use the RSS Manager to create and share RSS Feeds that feature article and blog content from your website.

Step-by-Step Directions:

Access the RSS Manager from your dashboard under Editorial in the main navigation. There, you can create, list, edit or edit by ID RSS Feeds.

How RSS Feeds Are Used

Take advantage of RSS Feeds to:

  • Let readers follow specific topics or categories of articles or blog posts via their own RSS readers.
  • Add RSS feeds to Twitter and other social platforms for automatic updates when new content is posted.
  • Support client-developed mobile versions of a website.
  • Support client-developed apps for smartphones and tablets.
  • Support client-developed in-house applications for bundling and redistributing content to site license subscribers.

Here’s an example from Housing Wire on how available RSS Feeds are displayed:

By default, ePublishing creates an RSS feed for all single topics and categories set up in your Taxonomy Manager.

For example, if you added the topic “Strategy” to the Topic/Category section of your Taxonomy Manager, it would automatically create an RSS Feed for articles and blog posts that you associate with that “Strategy.” No additional steps are needed in the RSS Manager to make these operational.

Go to “yourdomainname.com/rss” to see the RSS feeds available on your website.

Use the RSS Manager to create RSS feeds that could contain articles or blog posts associated with multiple topics or categories. For example, create an RSS Feed that would include articles tagged with the topic “strategy,” as well as any other articles tagged with the topic “best practices.” Any article or post that shares any one of those terms (does not have to be both) would appear in the RSS Feed.
