How to Use the Feed Builder Dashboard
The Feed Builder Dashboard allows you to create custom RSS, Atom, and JSON feeds. You can access this dashboard by appending the following to your site's URL: r/dashboard/feed_builder
To add a new feed, click the ⨁ icon in the bottom right-hand corner. From there, you can enter your feed's name, code, and desired template. Within edit mode, you can also add basic access authentication, and even preview the feed before it goes live.
