rss reader gadget
Do you think would be too complex to add an rss reader to gadgets?
Actually i use the external code to show rss feeds, but i'd like to add more integration with users profile and so on....
Agree - Would like to have one to help keep our website engaging and informative with a constant flow of fresh information.

Not sure why I thought I saw a gadget for an RSS Feed, but was wrong. There should be one available to help keep our website engaging and informative with a constant flow of fresh information. If that info can be updated in real time, even that much more better. Surprised a Feed Gadget isn't available. Hopefully one will be now.
Until then, is there a Feed Reader workaround that can be recommended? Maybe add it to the HTML gadget, then embed a feed reader and then the actual feed? Just asking since I am not tech savvy.

I'd like to have one to update our members on news from a parent organization.

This is exactly what I need!! Pulling articles from blogs, websites, news sites, aggregate them, but post only what's related to us, automatically, whenever the source updates. Right now, I'm having to copy the entire article, with the link, paste it in a blog post. Update the header, time, author... waaaayyyy too much work.

We'd like this feature as well. Several of our members have blogs, podcasts, or youtube channels that are related to our club topic. We'd like to be able to aggregate these posts into a feed that displays on our site, so the membership can see all this media in one place.

Yep, sure would be a nice addition. You have this article showing how to MAKE a feed https://www.wildapricot.com/blogs/newsblog/2009/03/12/roll-your-own-rss-feed-digest-widget but there's no way to display one? Seems sorta silly...

It would be great if there was a way to add an RSS feed to the blog widget so that an RSS feed from another site will populate it.
It would be nice to be able to add an RSS to certain pages so that members could stay abreast of when it is updated.
This is different than say a blog or an event. It could just be a general page - but one that has content that can change on a random basis.

I have no answer, Antonio. We will have to take it into our Roadmap http://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Product+roadmap - and we won't until we have at least 10 authors here.
Meanwhile, can you please describe the overall scenario / task you want to accomplish? The more details you provide, the easier it for us to move forward.
