 Alternative Method


An alternative way to display an RSS feed is to use the News Feeds component that comes with Joomla.

  • In the administrator page, go to Components >> News Feeds
  • In the component, you can manage your news feeds and assign them to categories.
  • To show the feeds on the front end, make a component link in your menu.
