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.

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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

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.

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" ...

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 ...

From your question it would seem that your main problem is that the _spPageContextInfo variable is not defined. I don't know if this is your case, but in the past I found myself in a similar situation when working with a custom master page that someone else developed. After some fun searching for a cause, a number of curses to the master page creation and ...

I did some testing of my own and set up my environment in kerberos authentication and no proxy. The BBC feed works as expected, but the Financial Times is from what I understand not OK. I added the link to the RSS-feed in a text file /SiteAssets/ft-rss.txt and got a different error: An unexpected error occured processing your request. Check the logs for ...

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() { ...

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 ...

This is most likely due to Loopback check on the server. This a check Microsoft has introduces into the OS (starting in Windows server 2003 SP1) to avoid a certain kind of attack where a server was tricked into accepting request to other addresses and showing them as safe. When the server is contacting itself with another name than the servername it'll ...

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).

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 ...

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. ...

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 ...

I tried the same but ended up creating a seperate, Windows authenticated extension for my site on a different port. That one you can use with the apppool identity without any problems. Same goes for using REST for instance; couldn't get that to work via claims either. Setting up an extended site for these purposes seems to be the easiest route (and there's ...

What is the configuration in the Item Limit area of the RSS Settings for the document library? If you create a view with a similar filter, do any documents appear? If nothing was changed in the days setting, there would be no XML as there would be no matching items. Edit or upload a document, then check the RSS link again.

There is no way out of the box to aggregate all the RSS feeds in SharePoint into one feed. You would either have to build something, or you might consider looking at something like Yahoo Pipes (http://pipes.yahoo.com). Even with something like Yahoo Pipes you would have to add all the feeds manually into it's data stream.

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.

For the feed: What about getting the output you want through a Content Query Web Part and enabling the RSS feed for that? You would need a a dummy page to host the WP and do a bit of configuration but that might give you the flexability you need. MSDN: Customize RSS for the Content Query Web Part For the branding problem I assume you are using a master ...

I suggest you install Fiddler to see if there's any further detail happening via http that you aren't seeing (not sure if the webpart makes the request server-side or client-side). Fiddler should tell you either way. If the communication is client-side it will also tell you what response codes you're seeing from the target server. If the http request to the ...

You may be able to alter the RSS.xslt which resides in the Style Library of the site - this produces the necessary output for the feed. The feed is generated from a LAYOUTS page which creates an instance of the CQWP using this XSLT, so may be worth a try....bear in mind that this will alter all RSS feeds in the site collection. Given that you don;t appear ...

The only workarounds seem to be using custom code. One option is to alter the ListFeed.aspx page as described here by Duncan Smart (link is for 2007 but presumably same in 2010). He created an HTTP response filter to correct the links. If you absolutely didn't want to modify the out-of-the-box files (which is not best practice) then you may be able to ...

You might like to check out RSSBus. I haven't tried it out but it looks like an easy way to customize SharePoint's RSS feeds. http://www.rssbus.com/products/sharepoint/ http://geekswithblogs.net/Lance/archive/2009/05/19/customize-sharepoint-rss-feeds.aspx
