What is a feed?
Our feed link lets you connect with different platforms and keep your links up-to-date auto-magically. We'll continue to look at the source, like a Youtube channel, and show the latest items that we can find. If you publish a new video on your Youtube channel or add a new blog post to your WordPress blog, we'll add it right to your profile.
- Youtube - Channels and Playlists
- Shopify Blog
How to use a feed link
Feed links are a great way to keep your profile content up-to-date without entering new content yourself. Follow these few rules to get the most out of a feed link:
- Always add a title to your feed link to provide context.
- If you're showing more than five links, select the stacked layout. It will keep your other links from getting lost.
Where do the images come from?
For most feed sources, images are generated using the open graph image specified by your blog page (the same way Facebook grabs images). We get Youtube images directly from your videos. We then run them through a content-aware, machine learning algorithm to get the best crop.
Adding a feed link
- Go to your admin page
Click the "Explore Links" button and select "Feed"
Setup your feed by selecting the source. Select "Finish Setup" once
you've entered the correct details.
After setup, you can add a title to your feed links, or change the
number of items you'd like to show up.
Once you're all done, make sure to enable your feed!
Now you've got a link that will auto-update. Sit back and relax.
