How to Add a Blog RSS Feed to Mahara Portfolio

  • Go to your blog, scroll to the bottom of the page and look for the text that says, Subscribe to: Posts (Atom)

google blog rss

  • A new page will open with the address to the RSS feed.
    • An RSS feed is a link to an XML formatted version of your blog. This will allow the blog feed to update automatically where you use the link to the feed.
    • It also allows the blog site to display only the post, not the entire blog site, in another page.

google blog copyrss

  • Copy the address of the blog feed from the address bar of the browser.
  • Go to MAHARA and open the page where you want to display your blog.
    • You will need to EDIT the page.
    • Refer to the section on adding or creating pages or collection to your portfolio for further information on how to do this.
  • Click on the EDIT CONTENT tab and then drag and drop the External Feed block to your page.

  • Paste the address of the feed into the FEED LOCATION box.
    • You may want to edit the layout of the page to allow for a wider column layout.
