I have an external site at which I'm displaying news using Sharepoint Pages. I would like to publish these news pages using RSS, which works fine. But the title is the file name without the file extension. Therefore all spaces are removed.

I would like to use another column (from the page list item) as the title of the entries in the RSS feed. How can this be done, without too much work? In this case I don't mind a quick and dirty solution :)

  • Is the site for the RSS feed a SharePoint site in the same environment? – Lori Apr 22 '10 at 13:28
  • Aha, I missed the comment :) Nope, it's a Sharepoint Portal site in a completely different environment. – Anonymous Apr 23 '10 at 6:33

To customize RSS feeds the best option is to create a PageAdaptor for listfeed.aspx one such way is mentioned here.

You can follow the same code once you get the XML tell which fields you want to display


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.


Since I haven't seen an answer to my comment, here is my best guess. If the site you are using to publish the pages is part of the same site collection, you can show those using a content query web part and select what fields you want to display. This would look like an RSS web part, but would ba more customizable to your needs.
