Description

A simple RSS Reader that works with a local XML schema and uses transformations for full control over the display. Helps you to display external RSS 2.0 feeds on your web site.

This new version of our RSS reader is probably the fastest RSS Reader on the Kentico Marketplace: RSS feeds from other sites can be very heavy and need to be downloaded first. The first time this web part is executed it will download the external XML to the server hard drive. A time can be specified to tell the web part when to get a new copy of the external RSS feed.

@kyle.dahlgren-66fcu: This web part is declared as working with 6.0 version only. However, I tested the web part on 7.0 now and it seems to work well there, too. Just don't forget to tick the 'Import files (recommended)' box in the Step 1 of Import process.

@liquidmagic: I am afraid, the web part doesn't work on 5.5R2.

Can this webpart be used with Kentico CMS 7?
Thanks!

Hello,

can this be used on version 5.5R2?

Thank you,
Dimitris

The line:
using (CachedSection<DataTable> cs = new CachedSection<DataTable>(ref rssTable, this.CacheMinuteLoad, true, null, "mykey"))

should be changed to:
using (CachedSection<DataTable> cs = new CachedSection<DataTable>(ref rssTable, this.CacheMinuteLoad, true, null, this.RssAdress))

alang-atlas-advertising: You need to create your own transformation. An example of a very simple transformation for the web part can be found in this blog post: http://devnet.kentico.com/Blogs/Daniela-Kubikova/April-2011/New-and-Free-at-the-Marketplace--RSS-reader.aspx

Is there documentation? I am unable to get the WebPart to display any information from an RSS 2.0 or ATOM feed. Which transformation should I be using? I see the file downloaded and saved to App_Data/CMSTemp, but I am never seeing the entries appearing in the page.

Is there any way to export external rss into my news?
