The RSS Widget displays the latest posts from any RSS-compliant feed, like blogs.
RSS Feed URL
Enter your RSS feed URL, which is the URL followed by /feed. So, for example, the feed URL for ShortStack’s blog is www.shortstack.com/blog/feed. You can test the URL by pasting it into the address bar of your browser. If there are any errors, the feed will not work in the widget.
Number of Entries to Display
Use the drop-down menu to select the maximum number of entries the widget displays.
Use the Display Type drop-down menu to choose between Content and Summary display. Since feeds implement these differently, we recommend experimenting with these settings to see which works best.
Use the drop-down menu to select from one of two layouts. The Default English Layout includes labels in English, whereas the more international-friendly Simple Layout includes no labels.
ShortStack caches data for performance reasons. Use the drop-down menu to control how often ShortStack checks for new data.
Show Publish Date in This Time Zone
Select the time zone the article publish date/time is shown in.
Show Publish Date in This Format
Use the drop-down menu to select the Publish Date format.
Show entries in reverse order
By default, ShortStack displays articles in the same order as they appear in the feed. To reverse the order, check the Show entries in reverse order box.
