I am new to Sharepoint development. We have a sharepoint 2013 server. I have a RSS link and I want to view it on a simple page. The basic idea would be to find the RSS Webpart, Add it to the page and configure it to consume the feed link. From my research I was able to figure out that the RSS Webpart was moved from the "Media and Content" category in 2010 to "Content Rollup" category in 2013. But I was unable to find a RSS Webpart under any category .

Is there some setting or feature that needs to be enabled on the server to view the web part ? Or should I be able to download it and upload it myself? I was unable to find any leads and all I could get was third party paid webparts for RSS. I was reluctant to pay when it is already being provided with sharepoint. Any help is highly appreciated. Thank you

  • I'm new to SP, too. I'm using 2013. I see the RSS Viewer directly under Content Rollup. I don't know of your setup, but I had enabled publishing, because I had to implement a custom design. I have no idea if that is why I see it.

  • @CMKanode: I also have the Publishing Feature Enabled, but still do not find the RSS Viewer Webpart

  • Well, poop. I wonder what's different? I've got a test site that is enterprise and a live site that is standard. Both have that part available. Are you using Foundation? It may not be available in that based on a cursory web search.

  • @CMKanode I have standard. So, I should have the web part. I am guessing its something with activating some sort of setting

Go to "Site Collection Features" and then Activate "SharePoint Server Standard Site Collection features" this will Activate Most of the Web parts you need.
