Configuring RSS

Administrators perform this task.

If your version of Brightspot is missing any of the following configuration options, contact your Brightspot developer.

To configure an RSS feed:

  1. From the Navigation menu, select Admin > Sites & Settings.

  2. In the Sites widget, select the site for which you want to configure RSS, or select Global to configure RSS for all sites.

  3. Under Front-End, under RSS Settings, do the following:

    1. Do one of the following:

      • Turn on Disable Feed to a) prevent Brightspot from populating your site’s feed and b) remove the existing RSS feed and its previously published items.
      • Turn off Disable Feed to enable a feed that you previously disabled. Brightspot restores the feed along with all associated published items.
    2. In the Copyright field, enter a copyright notice. This notice appears in the feed’s copyright tag, which not all RSS readers display.

    3. Turn on Default To Atom Auto Detect to set the feed as a discoverable Atom feed in the section, tag, page, home page, or Facebook instant article’s page. Turn off Default To Atom Auto Detect to set the feed as a discoverable RSS feed.

  4. To customize feeds by section, tag, page, or home page, do the following:

    1. Under Type Specific Feed Overrides, click add_circle_outline. A form appears.

    2. From the Types list, select one of the feed types.

    3. Turn on Disable Feed to prevent Brightspot from populating your site’s feeds with this feed type and to remove the existing RSS feed.

    4. Turn on Render Full Content to deliver the entire item—not just a summary—to the RSS feed as plain text.

    5. From the Enabled Feed Item Types list, select the content types associated with these settings, or leave blank to apply the settings to all content types.
