RSS Portlet

The RSS portlet allows you to include formatted news and information from external Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feeds on your my.uen page. By pointing the RSS portlet at a particular feed, the portlet will display the feed's most up-to-date content every time the portal page is refreshed. For example, if you add a New York Times news feed, whenever the New York Times updates the RSS file, the portlet will reflect those updates the next time your my.uen page is reloaded.

The RSS portlet on your my.uen page has 3 default RSS feeds. To change the RSS feeds use the edit button on the portlet and replace the URLs with RSS feed URLs of your choice.

Here is a list of feeds you may be interested in: http://www.uen.org/feeds/lists.shtml If you want to learn more about RSS visit: http://www.uen.org/feeds/
