    Would like assistance setting up RSS Activity Feed

    tom12c

      I've been reading the instructions on how to setup the RSS Activity Feed from this location:

       

      http://www.adobe.com/livedocs/contribute/31/cps/wwhelp/wwhimpl/common/html/wwhelp.htm?cont ext=Contribute_Publishing_Services&file=configu8.htm

       

      And I am having a little bit of difficulty understanding some of the parameters they use.

       

      <FeedList
           <Feed>
                <Name>My Site's Announcement</Name>
                <TargetPath>\\myserver\wwwroot\feeds\announcementsfeed.xml</TargetPath>

                <WatchURI>http://myserver/announcements</WatchURI>
                <MaxEntries>25</MaxEntries>
           </Feed>
      </FeedList>

      WatchURI
      - The instructions say this:

      WatchURI indicates the folder the RSS Activity Feed service monitors for changes.Any Publish, Delete, or Roll Back events that occur to pages in this folder, or any subdirectory, produces an entry in the syndication feed.

      Note: If a page belongs to multiple syndication feeds, each syndication feed reports that page's changes.


      - What location should be used for this?
      - Should it be pointing to the staging or the production environment?
      - I have the Simple File Deployment Service setup, is this linked in any way to the RSS Activity Feed.

      Would greatly appreicate some assistance. Thanks!
