         A Cloud Component is inserted into a landing page via drag and drop within the landing page editor.

     

         From the editor toolbar, select the "Cloud Components" button.  A select box containing all of the available Cloud Components will then display.

     

         Use the search box to find the RSS Feed component.

    On the configuration screen, enter the following:

     

    • URL of RSS Feed - This is the URL of the feed that you wish to display.
    • Dimensions - The size of the feed on the page.
      • (note: in the landing page editor, make sure that the size of your component on the landing page is at least the Dimensions shown on the configuration screen.  This will allow all of your content be shown, without any being cut off)
    • Number of Entries - The number of feed items to show.
    • Text Size - The size of the text that is displayed.
    • Show Body Snippet? - Choose whether or not to show a portion of the body for each item.

     

    Click Save Settings and close the configuration window.

     

    Now, render the landing page, and you will see your embedded RSS Feed on the page.
