How To Connect WordPress RSS Feeds To Revue

02 November 2021 | 0 comments | Posted by Che Kohler in nichemarket Advice

Connect WP RSS feeds to Revue

So you've started a newsletter with Revue, arguably one of the most accessible newsletter creation platforms around. The Dutch startup was acquired by Twitter in 2021 and has slowly begun to sync the service natively with the social media giant. Revue's integration makes it easy to create newsletters based on your content or that of other sites, media and, of course, tweets.

The speed you can create this newsletter with its easy drag and drop template builder is a no-brainer for those less techy or design types. It's perfect for the small business owner or the budding blogger, and I can see why it's starting to pick up the pace. It's a hybrid between the likes of MailChimp and Substack, and I can see users from both platforms migrating over to Revue shortly.

One of Revue's strengths is the ability to curate content from various feeds easily. You can import content from social media, your site or other websites. Once you know how to set up those feeds, then creating your newsletters will become a breeze.

WordPress and Revue

If you have a WordPress website, several WordPress websites, or you like to pull feeds from your favourite sites that happen to use WordPress, then Revue has you covered. It can be annoying to swap between tabs and navigate different websites to grab links to hyperlink or embed in your newsletter.

The longer your newsletter, the more complicated it becomes and the more time it consumes. This leaves less time for adding your take on the content, checking your spelling and improving the overall product.

So how do you get started?

  1. Log in to Revue
  2. Select the integrations option
  3. Scroll down to RSS feeds
  4. Click Manage feeds
  5. Once you reach the feed section, you should find an open text box to add your feed, simply paste your feed URL into the box and click Add feed.

It's that simple.

So, where do you get your WordPress RSS feed URL from, you may ask? WordPress built the function into their CMS natively, so there is no need to struggle to find a plugin; all you need to do is review the feeds you like and submit the one you prefer for your domain.

Note: WordPress has several RSS feed formats and depending on your version of WordPress, your URL structure or the theme you're using, you may need to use a different variation. You can play around with the variations in Revue, and it will immediately tell you if it pulls in data or not. Alternatively, you can paste the URL into your browser. If it renders a text feed, it's correct; if not, it should fire a 404 error page.

I won't bore you with all the feeds available, but here are the suggested ones I think most people would find helpful when constructing a newsletter.

Grabbing your blog feed

If you're looking to grab all content on your blog arranged by date, you can use the following URL, swapping out domain name" for your website domain.

https://domainname.com/feed/

Grabbing your author feed

If you're looking to grab all content from a particular author, you can use the following URL, swapping out domain name" for your website domain.

https://domainname.com/blog/author/author-name/feed/

Grabbing your search feed

If you're looking for content that matches a specific search term, you can use the following URL, swapping out domain name" for your website domain.

https://domainname.com/?s=searchterm&feed=rss2

Grabbing your comment feed

If you're looking to grab comments from your blog articles, you can use the following URL, swapping out domain name" for your website domain.

https://domainname.com/comments/feed/

How do I find feeds in Revue?

Once you head over to the create section of Revue, you may not see your feeds at first. There should be an arrow on your right-hand side of the screen, click on it, and it should open up every feed you created.

You can scroll through these feeds and grab the articles or content you like, and drag it into your newsletter.

Feed your newsletters

By taking the time to set up the feeds you use the most, it will save you a heck of a lot of time and allow you to be more creative with your content. You can chop and change things, remove feeds that aren't as useful and improve the content feeds to our newsletter platform. These newsfeeds make it easier to stay on top of trending topics without spending hours searching the web and various sites.

You effectively build a robust content aggregator that allows you to review and distil the information you think will be valuable to your audience. The trend of curating information is growing, and it's why social media curators are going to be the next big trend over the next decade.
