The element Edit RSS Feed (RSS=Really Simple Syndication) allows users to easily publish web content to interested internet users (subscribers).
This element allows users to edit their own feeds, and enables content syndication by making it easier for other sites to publish it. Users can pull from multiple feeds, even on different websites.

Add an Edit RSS Feed Element

Drag-and-Drop the element Edit RSS Feed from the elements menu anywhere on the page.


Dragging and dropping the element onto the page automatically opens the "RSS Feed Settings" window.


  • Title of RSS feed: Enter a title for the RSS feed
  • Description: Enter a description for the RSS feed
  • Your Website URL: Enter the URL of the website

The information above helps identify the source of the RSS feed and is necessary for the feed to work properly.
