RSS feed in Web Content?

Feb 8, 2012 9:39 AM

Tags: #digital_publishing_suite

I have created a frame, plugged in a URL for an RSS feed and, while the feed works fine in a browser, when I test the article on my desktop, I get the straight HTML. When I test it on my iPad, nothing feeds (the frame is empty). Any thoughts? Am I trying something that is not supported or just missing a step?

    Sounds like you don’t have a valid HTML file.

     

     

     

    Do you have a head section and a body section?

    For starters there’s no closing head tag.

    Hi Minia, it's as simple as creating a Web View interactive on an InDesign page, and embedding the URL into that WebView. Alternately, if you have a HTML page designed that you want to use as the entire article, you can just upload that as a stand-alone article, and not build an InDesign page.

    This gets even easier in CS6. Just copy/paste the HTML right into InDesign.

     

     

     

    It’s one of my top 10! http://bit.ly/IjrPvp

    Thank you guys.... So it is exactly like Twitter feeds.

     

    Do you if we can let the feeds when the user is offline?

     

    I explain my self, instead of using a "poster" or having the frame empty is it possible to keep the latest feeds shows in the frame when the user is offline ? And then it is updated when user is online ?

    No, the feeds will not update unless a user visits the page within the DPS app, which triggers the HTML content to load/update. You can't do background loading+caching.
