How To Integrate and Publish Curated RSS Feeds On Your WordPress Blog

How To Integrate and Publish Curated RSS Feeds On Your WordPress Blog | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Robin Good: For content curators who own or manage a WordPress-based website here is a great tutorial on how RSS feeds can be integrated and published directly (parsed) on any given web page. 


Authored by Vladislav Davidzon this excellent tutorial requires some basic technical knowledge on how to operate WordPress variables and functions and it provides precise guidance on how to:


- Utilize the Built-in Parsing Function to Pull RSS Feeds in and Turn their XML code into Content


- Divide Content into the Right Number of Columns for your Website’s Design


- Create a Friendly Display of RSS Content Using WordPress Loop Variables


From the tutorial: "Included only since version 2.7 of the WordPress software, the ability to parse RSS feeds as content and include that information into a template file is relatively new and its parameters are largely unknown even among the more advanced members of the WordPress development community at large.


Luckily, these parameters are easy to learn and customize, and they can turn a simple RSS feed into a great source of extra content and discussion on already-busy WordPress blogs.


Not only can RSS feeds be parsed by WordPress, but they can also be split up into columns and tabs.


This allows for feeds to actually be used as the primary source of content on some WordPress blogs, especially those that consider themselves a mere aggregator of outside content rather than a producer of unique news, reviews, or commentary on any topic."



Very useful. 9/10

The human ingenuity within any organisation are it's greatest competitive advantage. Yet according to the latest statistics, over half of todays workers are disengaged . When leaders are committed and actively working to engage, inspire and embolden – they unleash untapped potential and raise the bar not just on productivity, but on the value their organization contributes to all stakeholders.

(From the article): Leading in today’s increasingly competitive, accelerated and uncertain world takes courage.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, Today, 7:53 PM

A substantial issue in many organizations i.e. School is the desire to manage and control the work. There is rhetoric and posturing that suggests something different, but it is rarely followed through on.

Käyttökokemus ratkaisee verkossa

Käyttökokemus ratkaisee verkossa | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Viime vuosina käyttökokemus (user experience, UX) on noussut ratkaisevaksi kilpailutekijäksi, joka erottaa verkkopalvelun muista. Valta verkossa on asiakkaalla ja he ovat muuttuneet yhä valikoivemmiksi sen suhteen, millaista kokemusta he vaativat. Verkkopalvelun tulee olla miellyttävä ja helppo käyttää, kaunis, nopea ja funktionaalinen. Hyvä käyttökokemus koukuttaa käyttäjät palaamaan sivustolle ja suosittelemaan sitä verkostoilleen. Se rakentaa positiivista brändimielikuvaa, jonka arvo voi olla mittaamaton.


Mistä on hyvät käyttökokemukset tehty?
