Configuring RSS

Administrators perform this task.

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

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

  2. In the Sites & Settings widget, click the site for which you want to create a feed. (If you click Global, you configure a feed for all of your sites, and can then override the settings individually at the site level.)

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

    1. Do one of the following:

      • Mark Disable Feed to a) prevent Brightspot from populating your site’s feed and b) remove the existing RSS feed and its previously published items.
      • Clear 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. Mark 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. Clear Default To Atom Auto Detect to set the feed as a discoverable RSS feed.

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

    1. Under Type Specific Feed Overrides, click Add Type Specific Feed Elements.

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

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

    4. Mark 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.
