Want to build an RSS feed in Confluence


We are trying to build an RSS feed in Confluence. we are using OnDemand and having you host our app. There used to be a macro available, but we don't see it anymore. Are there any other solutions to this?

The documentation for OnDemand is wrong. The RSS Feed Builder is under the question mark icon, NOT the browse icon.

It took me forever to find it.

Wow, thanks. I finally see it.


Do you mean you want to add an RSS feed to Confluence pages using the RSS macro? Unfortunately this macro is part of the HTML Macros plugin, which is not available with OnDemand.

One possible solution is to use the Widget Connector macro - http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Widget+Connector+Examples - to point at a Google Gadget such as http://www.google.com/ig/directory?synd=open&source=gghp&num=24&url=http://1o4.jp/google/module/slim-reader.xml&output=html that can display RSS feeds.

Though I must admit I've found Google Gadget rendering in Confluence to be flakey at best.

Hope that's of some help?


Or, perhaps you are looking for the RSS Feed Builder? It's in the "Browse" menu.


The problem is there is no link for RSS Feed Builder in the Browse menu. I'm using OnDemand so is that the problem per Andrew's answer above?
