Using feeds

Use RSS feeds to get content updates without visiting the community.

By subscribing to a feed and using a feed reader (also known as an aggregator), you can discover what has changed in the application without having to visit it. For more information, see What are feeds?.

Note: RSS subscriptions are not supported if you have SSO enabled in your community because the RSS reader cannot follow HTTP redirects for authentication.

To subscribe to a feed:

  1. To subscribe to an RSS feed
    Option Description
    For places Go to the landing page, click , and then click Feeds.
    For blogs Go to the blog landing page and click View Feeds.
    For discussions Go to the discussion and click on the feed icon .
    You can see a list of available feeds for that place.
  2. To subscribe to a feed, click on the link that corresponds to the content type you want.
    You can subscribe to specific content types, such as only discussions posted in a group or only the comments of a blog.
  3. Select the application you want to use as your feed reader and click Subscribe Now.
    When you subscribe, you may need to enter your user name and password so that Jive knows it's not giving feed information to just anyone.
Attention: In order to subscribe to RSS feeds with Outlook 2007, you need to use the limited workaround if you use Internet Explorer. For more information, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917125.
