Admin Configuration screenshots:
3/1/2012: Screenshots have been updated for version 1.0.7+ with the new tabbed interface.
Cache control and Update Settings buttons are available above the tabs.The Update Settings button saves all of the changes that you have made. You can make changes on any tab and click the Update Settings button. All of the changes from all of the tabs will be saved.
There are two cache control buttons:
Clear input feed cache: Click this button to remove all of the raw feed data that has been cached. This is the raw feed data that is provided by the publisher which you are syndicating. You don’t want to do this too often, as some feed publishers will deny your feed requests if you request a feed too often.
Clear output cache: Click this button to remove all of the processed, formatted and customized HTML for the feeds. This is the actual feed content that will be inserted into your page, post or theme.
Configuration settings for the cache are found on the Cache tab.
News, the Default Main Tab
The news items on this tab are intended to inform the you about issues related to Syndicate Press. In particular, this is where you would see information about a new release.
Output Control Tab
Turning Syndication on and off for your whole site. On the Output tab, you can control the Syndicate Press output for all pages on your site.
Turning the output off will remove all syndicated content from your site that is controlled by Syndicate Press. Turning the output on will enable Syndicate Press to retrieve, cache, process, format and display the feed content.
RSS Feeds Tab
On the RSS Feeds tab, you can enter in the URL of each RSS/ATOM/RDF feed that you wish to syndicate on your site.
Each feed URL must be placed on it’s own line. URLs must have the full http:// syntax.
A feed URL may have a name (also known as a feed reference) associated with it. To give a feed a name, simply enter the name before the URL with a | character separating the name and the URL.
On the Filters tab, you can set GLOBAL inclusive and exclusive filters. Filters allow you to control the content that is going on your site.
For example, if you do not want articles with the word dog in them, then you would put the word dog in the exclusive filter box. On the other hand, if you are syndicating a feed about pets and you only want to show articles with the word dog in them, you would put the word dog in the inclusive filter box.
Filters are applied to each article within a feed and not the feed as a whole. This means that one article in a feed can be filtered out while all the rest of the articles in the feed are displayed.
A filter is simply a keyword. You can define as many keywords as you like. Filter keywords are separated by commas.
In version 1.0.8+ you can set custom include and exclude filters on a post or page level which are applied in addition to the GLOBAL filters defined on this tab.
Configure the cache settings for input caching and output caching. The input cache settings control how Syndicate Press caches raw feed data from the publisher. The output cache settings control how Syndicate Press caches the parsed and formatted HTML that is inserted into your pages, posts and themes.
Display Settings Tab
In the Display Settings tab, you can configure lots of options including how many articles are shown per feed, how many characters of an article to show and many other settings.
Custom Formatting Tab
In the Custom Formatting tab, you can configure custom feed separator code, the feed-not-available message and the article title style.
