Examples of Feeds

These are examples of the most common types of feeds; if you need something custom, don’t hesitate to contact us for assistance.

Article Feeds

There are four different displays for Article feeds offering a variety of layouts.

Event Feeds

There are six different displays for Events Feeds. The two options labeled "Archive" will display past events.

These feeds are generated based on the Site Placement taxonomy tag associated with your base page and your Article or Event pages. Before setting up this archive, double check the following:

  • You have a Site Placement taxonomy tag dedicated to this section.
  • All content you wish to appear has been tagged with the correct Site Placement tag.
  • Your base General Content page has been tagged with the correct Site Placement tag.

Create a Site Placement Event Feed

  1. Click on "GW Display Views - Site Placement".
  2. Select "Events List - Site Placement".
  3. If desired, check the box to override the title.
  4. Select the desired Event Type(s) to display in the feed.
  5. Select the desired Display Option and check the boxes to show the Image and Date if desired. We recommend one of the following display options:
    • Events List Sidebar: This is the most common, with a date block on the left and title and time on the right. 
    • Headlines Spotlight: This is a good alternative if you don't like the date block.
  6. The Image Size should be left as-is.
  7. If desired, check the box to add a "Show More" link. This is typically used to link to a longer list of events or an events archive.
  8. Click "Finish" and drag your feed to the desired location on your page.  
  9. Click "Save" and refresh the page.
