Feeds, also known as RSS feeds, XML feeds, syndicated content, or web feeds, contain frequently updated content published by a website. They are often used for news and blog websites, but are also used for distributing other types of digital content, including pictures, audio files, or video. Internet Explorer can discover and display feeds as you visit websites. You can also subscribe to feeds to automatically check for and download updates that you can view later. In addition, when you add a Web Slice to your Favorites bar, you automatically subscribe to its associated feed.

To do this in IE browser

click on the Favorites button to the left of the tabs, and click on the Feeds tab.Then it will show the available feeds.Select the feed you want.then a drop down bow shows "import and export"

then a window opens and shows three options.Put tick mark on "feeds".

click next and the output will be stored as.opml file.

Hello eZ Community!


Another user of eZ Publish recently read your article and commented that it would have been better to include an example of how to trigger the rss import manually. The following is a brief explanation of how to do this simply and effectively.

To run only the rss import cronjob you would need to make a settings override of cronjob.ini and create a setting block for just the rssimport cronjob part.

Here is an example of the runcronjobs command running only one cronjob part

cd /path/to/ezpublish; php ./runcronjobs.php -s ezwebin_site rssimport


If you don't mind running the other cronjob parts (in the default set) as well, you can just run the default command (I believe).

Here is an example of the runcronjobs command

cd /path/to/ezpublish; php ./runcronjobs.php -s ezwebin_site


Regardless of how you run the cronjob part, remember to review your cronjob settings overrides to ensure you understand your cronjob part configuration before you use it.

Here are some related documentation


I hope this helps others reach their goals quickly and painlessly.

The article was pretty helpful, I’ve been looking at ways of fully harnessing the power or supposed power of RSS feeds, outside of the usual utilisation of RSS aggregators.
