Overview

The RSS Widget displays preset RSS feeds on your page.

Important Note

Not all feeds are compatible with the RSS widget. For example, items in feeds from sites that use RSS version 1 will not display in the RSS widget. Some Feeds will only work in an RSS reader, but will not display in the RSS widget. This is due to options being disabled by the RSS host. In this case, contact the RSS host for preferred display method.

Feeds that contain HTML tags within the feed items may not display correctly if the feed does not also provide closing tags within that item. This can appear as extra space or formatting that was not intended.
