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

Anna Parini “Virtual” teams—ones made up of people in different physical locations—are on the rise. As companies expand geographically and as telecommuting becomes more common, work groups often span far-flung offices, shared workspaces, private homes, and hotel rooms. When my firm, Ferrazzi Greenlight, recently surveyed 1,700 knowledge workers, 79% reported working always or frequently in […]

EU-komissiolta muistutus Suomelle tieto- ja viestintätekniikan opetuskäytöstä - Opetushallitus, Verkkouutiset | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"EU-komissio on julkaissut vuotuisen seurantaraporttinsa Education and Training Monitor 2014. Tällä kertaa Suomi saa sekä ruusuja että risuja.

Raportissa painotetaan koulutuksen tärkeyttä erityisesti tiukkoina aikoina. Nyt jos koskaan pitää satsata koulutukseen. Koulutuksella vaikutetaan tuottavuuteen, kilpailukykyyn ja innovaatioiden syntyyn. Koulutus edistää tasavertaisuutta ja parhaimmillaan katkaisee syrjäytymisen kierteen."

"Tieto- ja viestintätekniikan käyttö on ylipäätään rempallaan Euroopassa, mutta erityisesti Suomessa. Suomessa on Euroopan matalin osuus oppilaita, jotka käyttävät tieto- ja viestintätekniikkaa koulutyössä. Myös opettajien into käyttää tieto- ja viestintätekniikkaa on Euroopan häntäpäässä."

iPad App of the Week: VSCO Cam for iPad | iPad Insight | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
This week’s pick is VSCO Cam, a universal photo shooting and editing app for iPhone and iPad.

VSCO Cam was actually one of the app extensions teased this year at the iOS 8 announcement, but strangely enough, still does not feature any kind of photo extension. You’ve still got to do all the edits in the app, but that’s now a little easier with native apps across both types of iOS devices, and iCloud sync.
