Subscribe to RSS/Atom Feeds
Add feeds to PressForward using the Add Feeds panel. Items from feeds will populate the All Content panel. Once added successfully, your feed will appear in the Subscribed Feeds panel. More information about feeds can be found here.
Feeds can be added three ways: one at a time, in batches using an OPML file, or by subscribing to an OPML file. Either way, you should save a list of your feeds in a backup file outside of the plugin.
To add feeds one at a time:
Select Add Feeds from the PressForward menu.
On the Subscribe to Feeds tab, paste the complete URL (http...) or RSS path into the Add Single Feed box. (e.g. http://www.plosone.org/taxonomy/browse/neuroscience) (Note: https feeds can be added individually here.)
Click the Save Options button at the bottom of the Subscribe to Feeds page.
When feeds have been added successfully, the following message will appear at the top of your window: "You have submitted a feed." If there are problems with the feed you added, the message will read: "You have submitted a feed. The feed was not found." Note: When a feed is added with errors, it will immediately appear in the Alerts tab at the top of the Add Feeds panel.
To add feeds in bulk:
OPML files can be added using a live link. Copy and paste the link in the Add OPML File field.
Or drag a file from your desktop into the Add OPML File field.
Or Click the Upload OPML file button to open a dialogue box, select a local OPML file from your directory and upload it to PressForward by clicking the Add to Subscription list button.
Click the Save Options button at the bottom of the Subscribe to Feeds panel.
When feeds have been added successfully, the following message will appear at the top of the window: "You have submitted an OPML file." When the OPML file has errors, you will see the following message at the top of your window: "You have added an OPML file. The OPML file was not found." (Note: When an OPML file with errors is added to your feed, it will also appear in the Alerts tab at the top of the Add Feeds panel.)
In addition to a single OPML import, users can also subscribe to OPML files in the Add Feeds panel. An OPML subscription, similarly to an RSS subscription, will import all the feeds associated with the file and check for newly added feeds during the feed retrieval cycle.
Subscribe to an OPML
Select the OPML as Feed tab in the Add Feeds panel.
OPML subscriptions should be added using a live link. Copy and paste the link in the Add OPML Subscription field.
Click the Save Options button.
All of the feeds associated with an OPML subscription will appear in the Subscribed Feeds panel within 30 minutes. Click on Subscribed Feeds to confirm that each feed has been uploaded.
The OPML file will appear as a feed in the Subscribed Feeds panel, and each feed included in the file will appear as a child of the OPML file. If the OPML includes folders, PressForward will import the folder structure, as well. For more information, see the Folders section of the User Manual.
