Details and description

You will see different fields where you can fill in or edit information of the feed. These are:

Name: Fill in the name of the feed. This field is required.

Alias: This name is a shortened title of the feed, used when using SEF.

Published: Select Yes when you want the section to be published, and No when you do not want the section to be published.

Category: Choose the category you want this feed to belong to.

Link: Enter the link to the news feed. This should begin with 'http://'.

Number of Articles: Enter the number of articles from the feed which will be available to your users. The default is 5.

Cache Time: Enter how long you want to cache the feed locally (in seconds). Caching longer reduces network traffic, but can result in your feed being less up to date. Default is 3600 (1 hour).

Order: The order of the feed in the category. When creating a new feed, it will have the default setting of the last place. The order can be changed after the feed is saved.

RTL Feed: Check this box if the feed is right-to-left.

Toolbar

At the top right you will see the toolbar:

The functions are:

Save: Save the feed and return to the main screen of the News Feed Manager

Apply: Save the feed , but stay in the News Feed New or Edit screen.

Cancel: Go back to the main screen of the News Feed Manager, without saving the feed you edited or created.

Help: Open the Help Screen for the News Feed Manager: New/Edit. That is the same screen as this Help Screen.

Version Changes

Joomla! 1.0 did not have the alias field, or the option to specify right-to-left feed.

Column Headers

Column Headers Placeholder

Enter details of any specific Column Headers definitions that are unique to this function alone. Do not include this section if not applicable. There is no need to go into major detail in this section unless it is appropriate to do so. Use your judgement or discuss with other team members. Use definition term (dt) and style (dt15) for the name of the Column Header and definition description (dd) and style (dd15) for the explanation of the term.

Typical Usage

Typical Usage Placeholder

This is the most important new section in these Help Screens. This is the meat on the bones of the Help Screen. This should represent the typical basic usage of the screens' functionality in normal use. Write it as a guide not just as a sequence of instructions - except when this is required. Include links to other screens that are needed to complete the function effectively. Use paragraph format type and do not add extra white space. Ensure that you use the correct styles for inline emphasis and notices.

Quick Tips

Quick Tips Placeholder

Using the analogy of the previous section this is the sauce and condiments that go with the meat! Provide any one liners that may not normally be obvious. These may already be known to you or you may spot something within the forums or other publications. Just ensure they work and that the wording is consistent with the rest of the document and not a straight copy of the content from other sources. Use paragraph format type and do not add extra white space. Ensure that you use the correct styles for inline emphasis and notices.

Please remove this placeholder as soon as you start entering text here.

Points to Watch

Points to Watch Placeholder

Highlight known issues or easy traps that can be fallen into when using this function. Include references to known solutions rather than repeating the solutions here, unless considered essential. Even if there are none immediately apparent leave this section in the Help Screen - this message for future reference. Just replace this message with None Known at this Time. Use paragraph format type and do not add extra white space. Ensure that you use the correct styles for inline emphasis and notices.

Please remove this placeholder as soon as you start entering text here.

Dependencies

Dependencies Placeholder

Describe other screens that rely on the presence of this function or that this function relies upon, in order to work correctly for example: a Category depends upon the presence of a Section (up) and it must be in place before a Categorised Article (down) can be created. If there are no Dependencies either up or down for the particular screen just state None but do include the section. Use paragraph format type and do not add extra white space. Ensure that you use the correct styles for inline emphasis and notices. It will probably be sufficient to just list these and provide links to the Help Screens relating to the dependency.
