Who can use this feature?
The RSS Widget displays preset RSS feeds on your page.
Not all feeds are compatible with the RSS widget. For example, items in feeds from sites that use RSS version 1 will not display in the RSS widget. Some feeds will only work in an RSS reader but will not display in the RSS widget. This is due to options being disabled by the RSS host. In this case, contact the RSS host for the preferred display method.
Feeds that contain HTML tags within the feed items may not display correctly if the feed does not also provide closing tags within that item. This can appear as extra space or formatting that was not intended.
The RSS Feed is expected to display 14 days ahead of present-day and 30 days back from the present day.
