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

6 Leadership Habits, from West Point to You

6 Leadership Habits, from West Point to You | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

When I spoke at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point recently, I was the one who walked away inspired, having gained some incredible life insights, which I wrote about in last week’s blog. In addition, I was invited to be a guest lecturer, where I shared with cadets the habits of some great leaders—coaches and executives—I’ve worked with in the past.

 

So, from West Point to you, here are those six leadership lessons:...

(From the article): If you want to be a leader, you have to learn how to tell your story. The best storytellers always win. I reminded the cadets that less than a hundred miles south of West Point there were men who flew airplanes into buildings a few years ago because someone told them a story of bitterness and blame that they believed, and their choices and ideology were affected as a result. This example was a little graphic, but the cadets immediately understood it. I challenged them to use their own story to inspire others toward positive action and meaningful growth.

Many of these helpful actions happen in the unscheduled periods on our calendars. As the white space on the calendar fills up some of the relationship behaviors that are key to team building tend to fall away.
