How to Allow Members to Add Custom RSS Feeds in Dolphin 7

In today’s article, I will show you how to use the “Custom RSS” module with your Dolphin 7 based site. Before we begin we need to install the module. A step by step guide on installing the Dolphin 7 base modules can be found here.

Once we have the module installed any member can add or delete an RSS feed to their profile by clicking “Edit” under the “Custom RSS” block on their profile page. To add a custom feed you simply add the feed URL, the number of items to display and the title of the feed.
