A News Feed is a means of distributing website content (example: news).

It enables remote publication of website content.

"A News Feed is a data format used for providing users with frequently updated content. Content distributors syndicate a News Feed, thereby allowing users to subscribe to it. Making a collection of News Feeds accessible in one spot is known as aggregation, which is performed by an aggregator. A News Feed is also sometimes referred to as a syndicated feed."

Example: a News Feed Item published in Website A can be viewed in Website B without having to visit Website A.


Organising News Feeds

The New Feed Component allows you to add News Feeds from other websites to your website.

This is done by means of creating one or more News Feed Items.

News Feed Items can be grouped together into News Feed Categories.

Select Components and then the News Feeds link in the sidebar of your website's Dashboard to be able to:

add News Feed Items (select Feeds), and

create new News Feed Categories (select Categories).
