On the Modify RSS Settings page, as you’ll see in Figure 6.36, RSS is already allowed for
the list by default (because it is on by default in the site collection).
The RSS settings
In the RSS Channel Information section of the page, you can see the title, the description,
and even an image you can specify for the feed. You can truncate longer multiple-line
fields to 256 characters, and the person reading the feed can click the link for the item to
read its full contents.
3. To follow my example, leave the defaults for the RSS channel as they are, except for one:
enable truncation for the longer fields (such as the Body field of an announcement). That
makes it easier to skim down an RSS feed while looking for relevant items.
4. All the columns available to be displayed from the Announcements list are in the
Columns section. My example leaves the defaults fields as they are.
5. In the Item Limits section, let’s leave the defaults. The maximum number of entries
displayed on the feed page is , and it displays those items that have changed in the past 25
6. At the bottom of the page, you could click the Default button to reset the default values for
the RSS settings. However, because we made a change (truncating multiline fields) that we
want to keep, click OK to commit the settings and go back to the List Settings page.
To actually subscribe to an RSS feed for a list, you first need to go back to the List content
page (click Announcements in the title breadcrumb at the top of the List Settings page). Then,
while on the list, click the RSS Feed button in the List ribbon.
