We finally found a solution that would have saved more than 75% of our time had been someone posted in the forums. Still, we got to know, our god “Google” was the solution to this. Shocked? But true.
Let me tell you the process of how we accomplished the goal!!
Now, I need a place where I could generate code for an RSS widget, should not cost a penny ????, remember, I am not a coding geek, started looking for some online websites that could give us a code for the widget with given dimensions.
We found http://www.surfing-waves.com/feed.htm, a gold mine to generate code for RSS feed widget.
Surfing Waves was effortless to handle, the site needs the RSS feed, dimensions, and color format, that’s it, your code is ready – Fig. 2
On the elements tab, you can quickly catch hold of the HTML code of the widget – Fig.4
Now log into SuccessFactors LMS, Go to Admin > System Admin > Configuration > Land Page Settings > Create Custom Tile
Fill the details in Step 1 – Tile Settings > Tile Name, show tile for this group, etc. – these steps depend on how you plan.
Finally, select “Source” and paste the code copied from google element tab.
Yep! You are done!! You will be able to see a lovely custom tile feed floating every 2 seconds (I made a minor change, the feed was floating every 6 seconds, changed it to 2) – Fig. 6
Still not convinced play the below YouTube video to see it live ????
Likewise, we can have workarounds for most of the requested scenarios, ensure to keep an eye on the latest trends, tip & tricks around the corner and plan to utilize where-ever required.
