You can optionally import contents of RSS and Atom feeds from external sources into your Forums. This allows you to create topics from external sources such as news organizations which might prompt your members to engage in a discussion.
You can create a new guide from the following location within ACP at the following location.
Community -> Forums -> RSS/Atom Feeds
To create a new feed, select the "Create New" button at the top of the page. Enter the URL of the feed itself, along with the authorization if this is needed. In most cases this will not be something which is required, and can be left blank.
Once you have done this, click on continue, which will give you a preview of the data that will be imported into your site.
After clicking continue from the preview, you will then be given options for the importing of the RSS content. The first thing you need to do is to choose if you are importing into one of your pages databases, or into a forum
Once you have chosen where you would like to import, you are then given the option to choose which forum/category you are importing into, along with a host of other options for what to do with the imported items.
