RSS Feeds/Widgets/HTML Code IN PAGE

  1. Hi I am trying to put an news feed on my blog (common-room.org) in the form of a HTML widget or RSS Feed... I know you can do it in the side bar, however, I would like it on an actual page?

    If anyone could help I'd be really grateful!

    The blog I need help with is common-room.org.

  2. Pages do not have RSS feeds only Posts do. There is no way you can use any widget here in a page or in a post. They can only be used in widget areas (sidebars and footers). There is no way you can draw from a RSS feed and fill a blog with auto posted content. It's not allowed.

    Types of blogs that are not allowed:
    Automated blogs: Blogs that are generated by computers, including randomly generated blogs, blogs that re-publish press releases, marketing material, search engine results, link dumps or any other mass-produced content. http://en.wordpress.com/types-of-blogs/

  3. All WordPress blogs are equipped with multiple built-in RSS Feeds. http://en.support.wordpress.com/feeds/ Your WordPress.com blog RSS feed for posts is valid and operational http://common-room.org/feed/feed/

  4. Thank You for your reply,

    Is there anyway I can embed something like this: http://widgets.feedzilla.com/news/builder/index.html or http://www.blastcasta.com/add-news-to-your-website.aspx
    to a page on the blog?

    I'm really sorry if I'm getting confused this is my first time setting something like this up!

    I don't want to fill the blog with auto content... just a News page

    Thank You again!

  5. No you cannot embed that into a free hosted WordPress.com blog like http://common-room.org/

  6. Oh no worries then. Is there anything alternative?

  7. No there is not.

  8. OK - Thank you for your help and time

  9. I'm sorry I could not provide what you wanted. May I suggest you read this comparison? http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  10. Also note what we do have. The RSS Widget displays posts from any RSS feed in the sidebar or footer area for widgets.

  11. I looked at .org but I don't think I have the skills to use it!

  12. Then all you can do is use the RSS Widget.
