RSS Feed Ticker

The RSS Ticker Web Part displays either an external RSS Feed or the content of an XML file within your Sharepoint environment or a Public folder.
It shows the feed either as a Marquee ticker or a static vertical list.

The web part can be configured to:

  • external RSS Feed URL or an XML-File containing the data to be visualized
  • The maximum number of items to be displayed
  • The display option (ticker or regular list)
  • Customisation with a Template and CSS

Installation

Download and extract the current version of the WebPart.
Navigate to the App Catalog, upload the .sppkg file.
The Dialog will ask you about the deployment method and offer you the ability to deploy the Solution to all Sites (Checkbox).
now the WebPart is available to attach it to a WebPart zone as needed

Hello — We’ve recently migrated from on-premise sharepoint to SPO. And, as part of that process, have upgraded to the SPFX version of the RSS feed/ticker. Unfortunately, I am having problems getting it to work with an internal SharePoint list. Previously, the instructions were to simply insert “current site/subsite/Lists/List Name” … I can’t seem to get this to work. I have tried both a list in the current site and in a subsite. Neither works. current site would be: lists/notices subsite would be: libraryCatalog/lists/catalog Am I doing something wrong or does the part no longer support internal feeds?

Hi Gavin,

the SPFx Office 365 web part still supports internal feeds (eg. Sharepoint Lists).
Just enter the full URL of your list into the web part’s “Feed Url” setting by navigating to your List, clicking the RSS Feed icon in the ribbon and then copying the URL displayed in the browser’s address bar as eg.

https://sometenant.sharepoint.com/subsite/_layouts/15/listfeed.aspx?List=%7B3FCEBA09%2D4274%2D4342%2DA288%2DAEB9FB8CA0D6%7D&Source=https%3A%2F%2Fsometenant%2Esharepoint%2Ecom%2Fsubsite%2FLists%2FSubNews%2FAllItems%2Easpx

We are trying to add links to our ticker feed, however when we click on the link within the ticker feed it just takes us to a page rather than the link source itself

Hello, I’m trying to get the RSS to work with a sharepoint list, and have copied and pasted the URL from the lists’s RSS page but it still doesn’t seem to be working. Is there anything additional that needs to be happening? Public feeds seem to work fine.

Hello – can you advise why my RSS feed is not loading – https://amrc.org.au/?feed=news

Hassab,

to point the web part to a Sharepoint List, please use the below settings:

Feed Url:
Enter the URL of your Sharepoint List

Options:
noproxy=1|

(this setting indicates that you are not reaching out to the intenet to address an external feed).

Chris,
this particular feed has a non-conforming RSS format regarding the feed item text.
If you turn off the web part’s “Show Description” setting, the feed will display (although only the title and date).
