The RSS app will allow you to showcase your favorite RSS or news feeds right on your signs. This multimedia rich app is easy to use. Simply choose from the 4 available formats to show your RSS/News feed in.

Pick a Format -

You can display RSS Feeds in a variety of formats. Once you click the RSS app on the Left hand side of the editor and choose to enter a link or pick one of the pre-populated RSS sources, you can select the Format that you would like the RSS feed to display in:

Title - This will cycle through only the titles of the RSS feeds. The content/description and images will be left out. This is perfect for a bottom or top scrolling bar where you want info to occupy, but you don't have a lot of space.

Title and Description - This will display the Title and Description of the RSS feed, but no images. This is good for taking up a portion or half of the screen where you don't have enough room to include images.

Landscape - This is a great option for full screen Landscape RSS or news feeds. Images, Title and Descriptions will be shown.

Portrait - This is a perfect option for Portrait screens where you want to show full screen news feeds from top to bottom. Titles, Descriptions and Images will all be shown.

Image Full Background - This will allow you to display full screen images from your RSS feeds with the RSS text over the top of them.

Options -

Select Topic / Enter URL:

You can select a topic for the RSS feed if it is pre-populated, or you can enter a URL for a RSS feed you would like to display.

Rotate Interval -

This is the number of seconds you would like each RSS item to display for before advancing to the next RSS item.

Number of Posts -

This is the number of RSS items you would like to display in the RSS feed from the most recent. For example if the feed had 40 RSS feed items and this was set to 8, it would only show the most recent 8 posts in a loop.

Auto-Advance Slide after Number of Posts -

This allows you to set the number of RSS items to display before automatically advancing to the next slide in your schedule if you have multiple slides in your schedule. This will override the slide duration you have set in your schedule if it displays the number of posts you choose prior to the slide advancing. If this is set to zero(0), the slide will honor the time you have set in the schedule and will not auto-advance.

Image Style -

This is the style/format that you would like to display your RSS feed in. The options can be found in the image above under the format section.

Choose your Transitions, Entrance and Exit Animation -

You can pick an entrance and exit transition for your RSS feeds. This can make your feed appear as it is scrolling in from left to right, or bouncing in and out. There are hundreds of combinations to choose from to make your content stand out.
