Confluence Cloud - How do you add an RSS Feed into a space/page?

Hi,

 

I was wondering if there is an option where I can integrate an RSS Feed into Confluence page.

That way, I will be able to access updated news within Confluence.

I was exploring for options and noticed that Macros for Cloud were disabled due to security issues, however, that was in 2016.

Is there a possible chance that this option is now available?

 

Thank you,

Hi @Andrew Ko ,

Confluence Cloud doesn't have a direct RSS reader, either as a built-in macro or as a Marketplace app as of today. It seems possible that a developer might take advantage of our new Forge app platform to create a simple RSS feed macro for Confluence Cloud in the future.

However, you can use the iFrame macro today to create an RSS reader of-sorts. In the example here, I used the iframe option on rss.bloople.net (after clicking on the teal "more options" button) to get an HTML-friendly rendered feed. Any service that can render an RSS feed as HTML will work fine here - this one seems straightforward but could be replaced with any other service you find.

In Confluence, create an iFrame macro on your page and paste the src address into the URL field. You can also use the Styles field on the macro to insert CSS and change the look of the embed.

I hope that helps solve your use-case! With a little option tweaking and CSS, I believe you can get a pretty nice-looking RSS feed on a Confluence Cloud page today.

Cheers,
Daniel

Hi, with our add-on mailto.wiki and Inoreader you can convert an RSS feed into blog posts. With Inoreader you can also subscribe to Google News, Facebooks posts, Twitter and other sources. We've written a blog post about it here: https://mailto.wiki/creating-a-daily-news-feed-in-confluence-rss/.

Hi @Vero Rivas ,

 

Thank you for sending the posts. However, these articles cover RSS feeds for data centers and server rather than the cloud.

The one article that refers to the cloud is to create an RSS Feed Link for other RSS Feeds to update user on any changes done within confluence. I was hoping for the opposite of this.

I was wondering if there was a way to embed an RSS Feed reader within Confluence, that way everything is accessible in one space, rather than me having to access a different site.

 

Thank you.
