    a new module to add RSS feeds to SilverStripe websites Link to this post

    Hi,

    I have been wasting a lot of time coding RSS feeds every time I do a site, since I came up with this module.
    The module enables you to add RSS feeds to your website, and it adds them to every page of the site.

    the code is here, https://github.com/fonsekaean/SilverStripe_RSS_Feed_Manager

    welcome to use it.

    cheers

    Hello, this looks nice, and I'm sure it is nice, I would just like to be able to figure out how to use this?
    I figured I should make a template, but I would appreciate the help since I'm kinda new to this, and I got an assignment to get rss feed from 10 sources on one page and then place (random) 3 of them on home page. Could you mby help me with that?

    hi,

    you dont have to do any templates for this, just extract the folder to your SilverStripe root and run a dev build.

    then to configure that you will have to go to the site tree, select the root node or the site config. then add RSS feeds.

    After doing all this you will see the RSS icon in the browser's address bar, in chrome top right corner.

    if you still have questions welcome!

    Hi.

    OK, I have extracted it in my ss folder some time ago, have run /example.com/dev/build?flush=1 and it worked, just didn't know what it did before. I now have a tab called RSS Feeds between Security and Help tabs in silverstripe.

    Not sure about that thing you said I would have to configure (adding the RSS feeds in my site tree root node) so if you could further explain that part, and how to use RSS Feeds tab in SS? All I can see it does is that it adds some title and description of sth somewhere, but I can't seem to find a way to display it on my page.

    I know this is a neusance, but it would rly help me a lot if I could figure this out.

    Ty in advance!
