Add RSS content to your Apps.
RSS Curate pulls in content based on an RSS feed, and supports all feeds based on the RSS validation standards. Some RSS feeds contain other XML content, which cannot be interpreted without custom code. (Note: Livefyre provides custom adapters to extract special fields from Instagram and Tumblr RSS feeds.)
While Curate supports many RSS feed types, not all are supported. For more information on supporting feeds not described here, please work with your Livefyre Account Manager.

Use RSS Curate to create rules by which RSS content will be pulled into your stream. Simply add a Title, enter a URL in the field provided, and select whether or not you wish to premoderate the content before posting to your site.
Note: RSS URLs must be whitelisted to be included in the stream. Work with your Livefyre Account Manager to whitelist selected URLs.
Livefyre parses RSS feeds based on 2 different RSS specs, RSS 2.0 and Media RSS. Feeds that do not adhere to these specs will not be read by Curate, and their content will not be pulled into your stream. Use the WC3 Feed Validation Service to check the syntax of your RSS feed, and ensure that it is valid.
To defend against random asset pulling, Livefyre requires that all media:content URLs pass either Embedly’s Extract API, to verfiy it’s from a trusted source, or are added to Livefyre’s own whitelist. If you must use feeds with assets that are not expandable by the Embedly Extract API, please work with your Livefyre Account Manager to add them to our approved URL whitelist.
To create RSS YouTube URLs, enter the YouTube video URL into the RSS Feed field. The video can be expanded and played inline, and will display information including the video’s title and author.
