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

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

US students major in philanthropy CSMonitorcom - Grant Foundation

This could be a very interesting new field - but are we already too prone to navel-gaze within the philanthropic community? Curious to see how this comes together.

Evernote Apps Up Moleskine Notebooks | NewsFactor Network | Philanthropy Watch | Scoop.it

I had meant to post this on my own scoop a few days ago, but it fell through the cracks. SO interesting - if it fits in your budget and time for the scanning process. Thinking I am going to try it out.

 

"You can now make Evernotes the old-fashioned way, in a Moleskine notebook. But this analog tool has been adapted for the digital age with special paper that can be scanned by a smartphone or tablet."
