Details

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.
