Implementing an RSS Feed into SharePoint 2010 Foundation
Most people who have reached this page will probably already now know after a while of searching the net that SharePoint 2010 Foundation does not support RSS feeds out of the box. There is however light at the end of the tunnel and we managed to get a number of RSS feeds delivered into our SP2010 site.
All you do is as follows:
Insert a Web-Part as you might do normally and select 'Content Rollup' then XML Viewer.
This is our basis for reading the external feed, edit the new Web Part and enter the external RSS feed into the XML Link box. (You can select test, just to be sure). If you hit Apply your read will show in SP however you'll notice it's not the greatest at displaying the data.
So, next step we have to format the text properly. You do this by going to XSL Editor and inserting the code available below:
Right click and Save Target as
Copy and Paste this code into XSL Editor.
Hit Apply and it will format nicely into bullet points, for those of your able you can obviously customise the above as required.
Finally, select Appearence and edit your name fo the feed.
Job Done, you have an RSS feed going straight into your SP site.
