RSS Feed Block

Creating an RSS feed block offers a unique opportunity to display fresh content on your website. Displaying feeds from related relevant sources can generate interest, increase traffic and improve search engine ranking. You will need the RSS feed URL from the site you wish to display the feed from.

Note: you must enable the Feeds bundle to use this feature.
