RSS Feed Viewer Webpart RRS feed

  • Question

    1. In the RSS Viewer tool pane, paste the URL for the RSS Feed into the RSS Feed URL box.

    See the image here: http://officeimg.vo.msecnd.net/en-us/files/989/359/ZA010291421.jpg

    How do I use this web part to have more than one RSS Feed displayed?  I can only put one Feed address/url here.  Then I have to add the RSS Viewer Webpart again to add another RSS Feed URL address.  What's up with that?

  • This web part is only capable of displaying a single RSS feed. As you mentioned, you're going to have to add multiple instances of it to a page in order to use it to display multiple RSS feeds on the page.

    That being said, I've used a free web part from FireArrow Software in the past that does allow for multiple feeds to be configured in a single web part, and been very pleased with it. It has some nice formatting options and doesn't perform too badly either, especially when you consider the price. If you have the ability to install it into your SharePoint environment, it may be worth a look. You can get more info on it here: http://firearrowsoft.com/product_rss.php

  • As people are still using slow lines in some locations, please do not include images in your posts.

    Put the image on a publically accessible web site and include in your post only the URL for it.

    In that way readers of your post can decide for themselves if they want to see (and download) the image.

    Even though this is a free web part, please always, John, include a disclaimer (here, that you have no connection with FireArrow Software) somewhere in your post.

    Unfortunately there are people . not you, I know - who use forums posts as marketing tools for their products so disclaimers from genuine posters are useful.
