How to

1. Start by going to your resource site and obtaining the RSS feed URL. Be sure to note if the site is Wordpress at this time. Use these instructions if you need to generate a PubMed RSS feed.

2. Go to the Content Tab in the dashboard and click "RSS Feed Reader".

3. Give the feed a title and paste the URL in the designated area. 

4. Select a sorting option and whether the site is Wordpress, Other or PubMed.

5. Decide how many items should display and how often the feed should refresh, then publish. For those using PubMed, this will paginate the amount of items displayed; the total items available to display is the number set in PubMed. 

6. Go to the page that needs the feed and drag and drop the RSS Feed Reader widget on the page.

7. Click edit and select the appropriate feed.

8. Select whether you would like to show the main RSS feed title on the page.

9. Choose if you want to add a "Show More" button to display more items.

10. Select a view. Please note: the suggested views for PubMed feeds are item title, item title summary and the PubMed card. 

11. Save.

Additional Information


  • For the best user experience, the "Show More" button should be strategically used. It makes more sense to a site visitor if there is only a single feed on a page. If you need more than one, you should limit it to no more than two feeds and be sure place some content in between the feeds to visually separate them. 
  • Getting the RSS feed URL can be different on any website. If you are every having issues finding it, come to open lab for help!
