Create your own RSS feed to put custom quotes, text or your own news on a DAKboard screen.


We recommend using Dropbox, but any online service that allows uploading a file and generating a public link/URL will work. 


Create a new file in a public Dropbox folder and copy and paste in the following text:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<rss version="2.0">
<channel>
  <title>Title text</title>
  <link>https://linktoyoursite.com</link>
  <description>Description text</description>
  
  <item>
    <title>Entry 1 title</title>
    <link>https://link.com</link>
    <description>Entry 1 description</description>
  </item>
  
  <item>
    <title>Entry 2 title</title>
    <link>https://link.com</link>
    <description>Entry 2 description</description>
  </item>

</channel>
</rss>


Edit this file and add as many "item" sections as necessary. Replace the "Entry title" with your own title, and replace the "Entry description" with your own description. 


Save your changes to the file. Then generate a public link. In Dropbox, this is as simple as right-clicking on the file and choosing "Copy Dropbox Link".  


Next, back in DAKboard...

For a Predefined screen, under the "News/Rss" section, paste in your Dropbox link. 

For a Custom screen, add a News/RSS block. Edit the block and paste in your Dropbox link.



Lastly, (for Dropbox only), change the "0" at the end of the link to a "1".


Save your changes and view your screen and you should see the text rotating through:
