RSS Reader

As the name suggests this paragraph allows you to display posts from an RSS feed.

The configuration dialog allows you to control exactly what is displayed and the style it's displayed in.

Once you've entered the feed URL you can configure the number of posts to display together with any additional information such as the author, date, and source links. You can also choose the maximum number of characters to display in each post and specify whether you want to show all text including HTML formatting tags.

The feed title can be changed if necessary and the description hidden if it's not required.

Finally you can specify a link to the page where the RSS feed comes from in the 'Alternate URL' field. This is useful if you want to direct the user to the originating site rather than to a web page showing the full RSS feed.
