RSS Feeds

RSS (Rich Site Summary) is a format for delivering regularly changing web content to readers and platforms. RSS feeds are best accessed through an RSS Reader like Feedly, Feedbin, NewsBlur, and RSSOwl. Tempest follows global requirements for RSS feeds, supporting a default RSS for discovery through bots and other feeds that can be accessed directly.

By default, all Articles, Recipes and other content are surfaced by the RSS feed. However, it is possible to suppress an article from appearing in the RSS feed by unselecting the "Feed Syndication" checkbox in the "Syndication" area of the content editor. If this option is not available for a content type, then that content type is not eligible for syndication via the RSS feed.

It is also possible to modify the criteria for what content is included in the RSS feed. For example, if you don't want any content that's published to a particular section or that is tagged with certain rich terms to appear in the RSS feed, this can be configured. If you'd like to make any modifications to the RSS feed like this, please contact Publisher Support.

There are several distinct types of RSS feeds available which can be used for different purposes, the types are described below.

Sections and Tags

Configure your RSS to pull from a Rich Term or Section using the urls configured in the following formats: 

Excerpt

sitedomain.com/.rss/excerpt/tag/[tagslug]

sitedomain.com/.rss/excerpt/[sectionslug]

Full

sitedomain.com/.rss/full/tag/[tagslug]

sitedomain.com/.rss/full/[sectionslug]

Instant Articles RSS

sitedomain/.instantarticles/rss

The Instant Articles RSS feed is compliant with Facebook Instant Article guidelines. This RSS feed is a special feed which does not have multiple types nor can it surface content only from specific sections or tags. It will only surface content that is set to be syndicated to Facebook Instant Articles.

Trailing Slash

If your sites URLs are configured to end with a trailing slash, you will need to add a / to the end of the RSS feed URLs. If receiving a 404 error without a slash, add the slash to the URL to resolve this.
