Hi,
I want to have rss feed for our events . We have block and format for generating the events as you will see in this page
http://events.lamar.edu/calendar-listing.htm.

How can we achieve such thing in the CMS?

Regards,
Mohammed

    Hey Mohammed,

    In order to create the RSS Feed, I would recommend checking out the tutorial here http://www.hannonhill.com/kb/RSS-Feed/ on creating an RSS Feed in Cascade. Let us know if you need further help or if the tutorial is confusing at any point.

    Regards,

    Unfortunately, in order to see that page we would need some login information. Without that, the best I can do is suggest you double check and make sure everything is hooked up correctly (the rss format and block are attached to the template region, etc). The other option is it could be an error in the XSLT format, if that is the case, you can try using a Velocity format if you are more familiar with that (I have attached an example). Let me know how you would like to proceed or if you are able to provide any additional details about the error or login info.
