RSS Feeds

The RSS Feed app lets you include any standards compliant RSS feed into your page. This is convenient to pull in news from news sources that are not available in the News Article app. But obviously you can pull in all kinds of feed data, like traffic reports, sports, financial, local and federal government updates, etc. The logo to the right is commonly used to identify an RSS feed.


You can configure the app using the following properties:

Web address of RSSCopy the web address (URL) of the RSS feed in here.
Refresh icon(Re)load the feed and display the next article or start running the ticker.
Source only accessible within my networkUse this to have your computer and playback device access the RSS feed directly and not through our servers. It’s important that the server where the feed is hosted has the right CORS configuration. Contact us for assistance with this method.
