Try using the same Google RSS feed URL without HTTPS, then it should work. so instead of https://news.google.com/news/feeds?cf=all&ned=in&hl=en&topic=n&output=rss use http://news.google.com/news/feeds?cf=all&ned=in&hl=en&topic=n&output=rss I did a quick test and it worked in SP when using the HTTP URL but not ...

It is really simple. The best way is creating an External list using Visual Studio. Here is a service class I wrote. public partial class BlogArticleService { private const string FeedUrl = "http://blogs.microsoft.com/feed/"; private const string DateDisplayFormat = "MM-dd-yyyy"; private static List<BlogArticle> blogArticles = new ...

Try putting the script in a separate javascript file, store it in a document library or asset library, and add the link to the file in the Content Link box of the content editor web part.

We've used NewsGator in the past as an RSS aggregator (which supports https feeds) and it works quite nicely. Basically they have their NGES Server that aggregates all of the RSS feeds that you'd like, and then they have web parts that you can use in SharePoint to display those feeds inside of SharePoint.

You can only use the RSS viewer to pull internal SharePoint content if you're using Kerberos authentication in the farm. If you aren't running Kerberos, you'll need to use data view web parts most likely.

This topic is quite old but still valid since i just got the same behaviour from having 2 rss-feeds on a page and then adding a custom webpart with an updatepanel on it. The rss-feeds hangs in loading state while the custom webpart loads just fine. Havent been able to track down exactly what is causing it yet.. edit: Seems like it fixed "itself" now when ...

You have access to SPContext within a HTTP handler, so you should be able to use: SPContext.Current.List If for some reason that can't be used, this should get you there: SPContext.Current.Web.GetListFromUrl()

For your first issue:- Is your site a public site? You could always use feedburner to create a more friendly url to the RSS feed. You'll probably also get better stats as to the usage of the feed too! For your second problem:- Under RSS settings for your pages library, have you set the options under Document Options -> Link RSS items directly to their ...

If you want to consume or aggregate RSS feed data and then expose it as an RSS feed itself, you need to write a custom page and do it with code - you will not be able to do this with out of box Web Parts. The CQWP provides the ability to expose itself as an RSS Feed, but it can only aggregate SharePoint List data.

You can configure a view with the sort you want, and use that as your RSS feed. Append: ?View=<View ID> You can also get the full URL of the view's RSS by clicking the little RSS icon next to the view's Name in the Edit View page. I'm not sure there is a way to sort the default feed, it doesn't seem to be using the default view.

You would need to customize the RSS that CQWP generates. This MSDN article contains instructions. Basically you need to create your own XSL file and register it in \Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\portnumber\wpresources\web.config.

Try relying on ListData.svc which exposes Atom feeds using a OData. Almost every single list in SharePoint 2010 is also available via this REST WCF Service. In this way you could use OData queries to filter only records of interest for you (see here http://www.odata.org/documentation/uri-conventions/#SystemQueryOptions or more preciselly http://www....

I believe you can fix this by opening the site in sharepoint designer, going to "Site Options" -> "Language" and choosing a "Default Page Encoding" other than UTF-8.

As @Steve mentioned, create an Application Page in the _Layouts folder that outputs the RSS feed. Then link to that page from your web part. Here is an example of how to generate an RSS feed from C#: http://www.dailycoding.com/Posts/create_rss_feed_programatically_from_data_in_c.aspx

Your xslt should be something like: <xsl:variable name="ImageURL" xmlns:content="http://namespaceurl" select="substring-before(substring-after(content:encoded, 'src=&quot;'), '&quot;')" /> <img alt="" src="{$ImageURL}" width="75" height="49" /> Where http://namespaceurl matches the namespace "url" of content from the input To find ...

In order to customize the rendering of RSS Agregator web part default XSLT for RSS Feed should be changed (see Xsl property). Usage So, find the line for rendering feed item link: <a href="{ddwrt:EnsureAllowedProtocol(string(link))}">More...</a> and replace it with this one: <a target="_blank" href="{ddwrt:EnsureAllowedProtocol(string(...

AFter adding an RSS Viewer web part onto your desired page, if you may notice the headlines& content only being visible when the page is checked out, add a script editor web part to the same page that you have the RSS Viewer. In it, add the following code: <Script Type="text/javascript"> function CustomUpdateFormDigest() { if(window....

I'm not sure what are you going to do, so here is different options. If you want to show tweets from company's account, you can try to use embedded timeline. It's ready-to-use script, you just need to add it to your page (for example, with Content Editor Web Part). It's not customizable though. If previous solution doesn't fit, you can use some scripts on ...

Yammer has no RSS-feeds available for you. So that way is closed (all though it exists third party tools that claims they can give you an RSS feed for yammer, like https://zapier.com/zapbook/yammer/rss/3798/create-rss-feed-of-yammer-messages/). I would encourage you to explore the Yammer API:s, that might be useful (like https://developer.yammer.com/connect/...

Why you need proxy, when SharePoint install behind the Proxy eveything works except access to external content such as RSS feed.. Once Proxy access was granted, the web.config files on each of the servers need to be changed to inform SharePoint to use the Proxy. For an explanation of the defaultProxy node see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/...

Its feasible, but that would be a lot of work. First you would probably need to set up a custom BCS connection that hits a Facebook web service or RSS feed. Then create a facebook content type(s) that is Posts, etc. How often do you want to query Facebook for content? You will have to pick apart the data and put the data where it needs to go, in specific ...

In the Item Limit section, you can limit the number of items and days to include in an RSS feed. from https://support.office.com/en-gb/article/Manage-RSS-feeds-08a3ed69-1883-42c2-af56-4493bc13912a

Actually, if all your settings are correct, then you should know that Calendars don't generate any RSS unless you view it in Internet Explorer. If you view it in Firefox, it will generate the feed, but without any entries. View the RSS feed in Internet Explorer (or Firefox with IEtab).

Go into the View Settings for your newly created view. You should see a RSS iscon directly under the web address of the view. Click that, and that is the RSS feed for your particular view. Use that in your custom web part.

I think you'll need an application page (_layouts page) for this that returns the xml needed for the feed. If you've seperated the data/business logic from your presentation layer in your webpart, then this application page should be pretty easy to write because you are just creating a new XML based presentation layer.

Authenticated feeds have been an issue from the begining for the web parts provided with SharePoint. Unless you resort to either buying one the enables you to provide/store credentials, or develop your own, you could use search federation capabilities to read external feeds which have the increased advantage of allowing to connect. Hope will do the trick ...

There was a site called sharepointrss.com I havent checked it in years until now. It appears to have gone away. There is an XML web part you can find in the web part gallery, you may need to add it though. Here is a post on how to use it to display a feed. http://weblogs.asp.net/gunnarpeipman/archive/2008/01/02/sharepoint-how-to-display-blog-feed-using-xml-...

RSS Feeds are enabled on each list/library in SharePoint 2010, with the exception of Pages Library (and some others, not very common for usage) - but NOT by default enabled. In order to benefit from it, basically after enabling at the level of the Web Application, then Site Collection (under "Allow RSS for this site collection") followed by enabling it at ...

Try this: ddwrt:FormatDate(string($item_date) ,1038 ,1) I am using this to format date to dd.mm.yyyy format.

You could check if the WFE you are accessing has acces to the internet. The RSS Viewer WebPart is using server side processing to render the feed, so it needs an acces to the web.
