How can I use an RSS Campaign block?

Using our new UI? You might want to check this help article instead.


Moosend gives you the option to create your own RSS blocks, designed to display the information from the RSS feed URL that you added on the Campaign Settings of your RSS Campaign. You can style and reuse these to your leisure. 

Let's see how you can create one or more of your own:

A. Creating an RSS block

1. Click on the settings symbol, appearing on the right side of each row when you hover your mouse over it.

2. Choose the RSS Campaign option from the Container Type drop-down menu.

3. Set the maximum number of articles to be displayed on the container, by adjusting the relevant setting.

You can use the up/down arrows, or type the value in the numeric field. The rest of the available settings work exactly as the typical container settings and depend on the type of container you used for your RSS Campaign block.

B. Editing a block

An RSS Campaign Block is automatically filled with the supported dynamic elements.

As soon you transform a container to an RSS Campaign block the following dynamic elements will appear inside it:

  • article image
  • article title
  • article summary
  • article id
  • article publishedOn
  • article category
  • article URL

The content of each of these will be populated based on the information of the RSS feed URL that you added on the Campaign Settings of your RSS Campaign.

You can freely add or remove elements as you see fit.

You can also edit the style, size and position of the dynamic elements.

Elements that are placed inside a dynamic content container, have an additional field in their settings called the Repeatable Element Tag.

This represents the information each tag will be displaying out of the RSS feed URL data. For your convenience, these have been predefined for each element which is present when the RSS Campaign block is created. However, for any new dynamic elements you potentially add, the relevant Repeatable Element Tag must be selected.

Make sure to check the other available repeatable container types, such as the Cart abandonment block.
