Using the module

To use this module, users can click Create content | Feed and create a feed by entering the URL of a feed. This creates a content element for the feed (the title of which is either obtained via the feed itself, or is set by the user as title at the time of creation), and new Story elements for each item in the feed (as defined by the settings).

This then creates a new feed for us, as illustrated in the following screenshot:

BBC News | Science & Environment J UK Edition

Add new comment Link to site

From Administer | Content management | Feeds, we can manage feeds which have been added to our site, edit them, delete them, and delete stories created from them.

Each node created by a feed can be commented on by our users, which means that we can generate new discussions based on user submitted feeds!

We can make it easier for users to create feeds, by enabling a content block which was automatically created by the module. The block is called FeedAPI: Quick create Feed and is enabled via Administer | Site building | Blocks.

This block allows users to simply paste in a new feed link, and create a feed node which will automatically create new content based on the content in the feed, quickly.
