Definition of RSS
RSS is the acronym used to describe the standard for the syndication of Web content. It is widely used to publish frequently updated digital content, such as blogs, news feeds or podcasts. The acronym "RSS" may stand for Really Simple Syndication, Rich Site Summary, RDF Site Summary, or a variation of one of those.
RSS Reader Tool Overview
RSS Reader Tool is a simple yet powerful tool that allows you to publish RSS feeds from other sites into your own site using an automatically generated, customizable Flash text box.
Enter the URL of the RSS feed you want to syndicate into the box provided,
or select one of the preset feeds from the drop down menu.
You can customize the RSS Reader Tool's appearance to fit your site better by changing the reader's settings.
Indicate the size you want the Flash box to be and the number of headlines you want to appear at any given moment. Change the color
scheme of the RSS reader by entering a wide variety of HTML color codes into the designated fields or through the built-in color sampler.
You can see what the RSS Reader Tool will look like from the preview pane on the right of the page. Click go when you are done.
Although you cannot edit the themes of SanrioTown blogs, you can still opt to place the RSS reader within a blog post. Here's how:
Enter your dashboard and click "Write a post"
Click on the HTML tab on your editor then copy and paste the generated code on the RSS Reader Tool site.
Click on "Save" or "Publish" and your RSS reader should now be displayed in your blog.
You will need to have administrative privileges or have access to your blog's theme files in order to place the RSS reader in Wordpress. Be sure to backup your files before you edit them! Here's how to do it in Wordpress:
Login into your dashboard
Click on “Presentation” and under that, click "Theme Editor"
Click on the php file you want to place the RSS Reader Tool. For example, if you want to display your RSS Reader Tool on the left side of the blog, you will need to edit the leftbar.php file (filenames may vary depending on the theme you are using). Be sure to backup any files you will edit.
Click on the "Update File" button to save the changes you have made. Your RSS Reader Tool should now be on your blogsite.
Adding Multiple RSS Feeds
You can only add one RSS feed per RSS Reader Tool on your site. To display multiple RSS feeds, simply repeat the steps above and create an RSS Reader Tool for each feed you want to display.
