The RSS Viewer Web Part

A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström

SharePoint iconUse the RSS Viewer web part when you want to show content from any site that has an RSS feed – for example the kalmstrom.com Blog! – on a SharePoint page.

In the demo below, Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, shows how to add the RSS Viewer web part to a site page.

Add an RSS Viewer web part to a SharePoint page

  2. Click on the Atom subscription button and copy the URL to the page that opens.
  3. Open the page were you want to add RSS content in edit mode.
  4. Place the cursor where you want to add the web part.
  5. Click on the Web Part button under the INSERT tab.
  6. Click on the Content Rollup category.
  7. Select the RSS Viewer part and click on the Add button.
  8. Open the tool pane.
  9. Paste the URL to the RSS page in the 'RSS Feed URL' field in the web part pane.
  10. Define settings for how often the RSS feed should be updated and how many items should be shown on the page.
  11. (To avoid having the title RSS Viewer on the web part, expand the Appearance accordion and set the Chrome Type to None.)
  12. Click on Apply and then save the page.
