Using RSS Widgets in WordPress

To activate your WordPress Widget options go to Appearance > Widgets.

Choose the RSS Widget and drag it into the desired position in the sidebar. The widget form will automatically open.

Enter the desired Inside Higher Ed RSS feed URL in the form, copied from the list above.

Give the feed a title: This is optional but allows you to identify the source of the content.

Choose how many items would you like to display (by default, 10 are shown, but you can choose from 1-20 posts).

Choose what content to display: you can opt for an excerpt of the content along with the title, or the title only.

If you wish to give credit to the original author of the content, check "display author. "

You may also choose to display the posting date of the original content by checking "display date."

To save the Widget's customization, click Save.

To remove the Widget, click Remove or Delete.

You may add multiple RSS Widgets for incoming feeds to your WordPress sidebar and other widgetized areas of your site.


Using RSS Aggregator in Drupal

The Aggregator module is a powerful feed reader that is included in Drupal core. When enabled, the Aggregator module can fetch syndicated content from other websites.

The Aggregator module can gather, read, and display news, text, images, and other content from external news sites and blogs around the internet. The Aggregator module fetches content from other sites; it does not generate syndication feeds. (To enable XML syndication on your site, turn on the Syndicate block in Administer > Site Building > Blocks (Drupal 6.x or earlier) or Dashboard > Structure > Blocks (Drupal 7.x).)

When used with other modules, the Aggregator module can make these feed items available from a Drupal site using common syndication formats including RSS, Atom, and RDF. (Learn more about site syndication formats.)

Users can:

• View the latest feed content chronologically in the main news aggregator display.

• View the latest feed content by source.

The default permissions for the aggregator module must be changed to allow users to view the subscribed content.

Site administrators can:

• Add, edit, and delete feeds.

• Choose how often Aggregator checks each individual feed for new content.

• Tag individual feeds with categories, offering selective grouping of feeds in separate displays.

• Enable or disable blocks for every feed and feed category in the block administration page.

• List the latest news for individual or categorized sources to display as blocks in the block administration page.

The news aggregator requires cron to check for the latest news from the sites being aggregrated. Drupal also provides a machine-readable OPML file of all of your subscribed feeds.

In addition to providing subscribed content through the news aggregator, the Aggregator module automatically creates a module block for every feed you have subscribed to, as well as every feed category. By default, these new blocks are disabled, though an administrator can choose to enable a particular feed or category feed block by moving them to an enabled region.
