Configuring an aggregator page

  • Deleting pre-installed feeds:

Some feeds are pre-programmed (newspapers, consumer magazines, weather...). It is possible (and even desirable to gain useful space) to delete these feeds installed by default: go to the feed widget and click on the cross, to the right of the widget title bar: 'Close' the widget.

  • Installing a feed (basic function):

- From the customizable page: click on the "Add a feed" button, paste the URL of the selected feed.

- From the browser or the site itself: click on the syndication icon.

  • Ordering the widgets on your page: 

When you subscribe to a feed, a new widget is created, which is customizable: number of displayed items, location of the widget on the page, colour of the bar, etc.

  • Ordering your page:

It is possible to divide the content of your customizable page into tabs, corresponding to thematic pages (tabbed browsing)

  • Adding other content:

The widgets can be used to display content other than news. You can use them to display information on a permanent basis (links, images, slideshows, etc.).

  • Indexing the articles you have read:

It is possible to index articles with tags of your choice or with those most widely used by the Internet user community. Some aggregators (e.g. Google Reader) offer the possibility of using a tag cloud to visualize the most frequent themes in the list of articles read and indexed.
