Preparing a message for use with RSS

You can set up a message or a template so that it contains tags that can be replaced dynamically with content coming from an RSS feed.

This will allow you to easily add items from the feed into the message - using the New from RSS feature - selecting the order (i.e. position) in which they will be displayed.

RSS merge tags

This task requires a basic understanding of HTML in that you will need to edit the HTML of the message.

In the HTML of the message, insert the following merge tags where you want the content to be diplayed. There are separate RSS and ATOM tags, depending on the type of feed.
