Add an RSS feed as a content source when you don't know the URL of the of the feed 

There are several ways to find the RSS feed URL for a source.

1.  When viewing an article from any site, use the bookmarklet to check if we are able to find a RSS feed for the site.  If we are able to find an RSS feed for the site, you can select that option and the RSS feed will be permanently added to your sources.

2.  On the website itself, look for the RSS feed symbol:  Screen_Shot_2013-09-25_at_3.37.07_PM.png  Screen_Shot_2013-09-25_at_3.36.53_PM.png.  Clicking on the RSS symbol will create a page of unreadable text....(since an RSS feed is only readable using an RSS reader) but you will then be able to copy and paste the RSS URL into the search bar as described above.

 

Add an RSS feed using a keyword


If you are searching for content on a topic, you can also try to find the RSS feed by entering a keyword into the search field in your Paper Settings.   Using google, we pull up any relevant RSS feeds.  

  • From your Paper Settings Dashboard, click Content > Add content sources > Add website (RSS) sources.

  • Enter the keyword for an RSS in the field "Search for a RSS by keyword" and click enter.

  • To add the RSS search to your sources, click the Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 4.52.04 PM.png sign.  Once added, sign turns to .

 

Screen Shot 2014-02-12 at 11.26.47 PM.pngCurrently we support the following content-types for RSS feeds:

  • text/xml
  • application/rss+xml
  • application/rdf+xml
  • application/atom+xml
  • application/xml

Just as with HTML, not all RSS are created equal. If you see that your favorite RSS is not being picked up by us, please contact us with the RSS type and we will add it to a list for a future optimization of our web crawler.   You can contact us on Twitter.
