News Feeds

Usage


A news feed is a stream of posts that is updated when new content is published.  This is useful in keeping updated content on your page without having to touch it.  


How It Works


If you are working in a theme besides the GSU Homepage theme, you must activate the 'RSS Just Better' plugin in order to get a news feed.

After you have activated the plugin, use this shortcode:

[news feed="http://news.gsu.edu/feed" href="http://news.gsu.edu"]
