Edit-rss.png

Add feed address in the Feed URL: field.

(for now you have to add the link pointing to XML content)

Article Settings

Sow the article summary instead of webpage - by default summary of feed article is displayed. Summary is a short html content that sometimes is a digest of an article. Checking this option evolution-rss will render the full html article contained in link. By default this is off.

Feed Enabled - allows you to disable the feed. Useful when feed page is not reachable for some reason (eg. temporary server problem)

Article Storage

Don't delete articles - by default no articles are deleted.

Delete all but the last X messages - this option will allow you to keep a minimum number of articles in the current feed, deleting older ones.

Delete articles older than X days - this option will delete every article that is at least X days old.

Always delete unread articles - this will force deletion of articles even if they are unread.

Article storage enables you do delete old feed's articles to save space.


For evolution-rss versions < 0.0.4 in order to setup feeds you need to go to: Message->Setup RSS
