Understanding the News Feeds module

May 26, 2014 4:07 pm

The News Feeds Module lets users automatically add news articles to an Accrisoft Freedom website by connecting to another site that publishes news, or to publish feeds from the site via RSS (Real Simple Syndication).

The News Feeds Module makes it simple to display news feeds on a website or to publish content. It's easy to set up, and the module tracks activity, giving administrators an idea of how often their syndicated content is being accessed. This way, even if you don't have much news, your site can be a dynamic destination with information. Sites whose content you're publishing also benefit because visitors who wish to learn more can click on a link to visit their sites.

Note that syndicated content of the Syndication module is different from content in the News Feeds module in that Syndication module content becomes content on the website, not simply a link to the source site as with the News Feeds module.
