News Feed Component


The News Feed component displays a list of articles from a news OU Add-On. This component was created as a replacement for source code feed assets by generating the code for you through the component form interface. Enter your news ID, the number of articles you wish to display, and select a style to generate a feed. Because this component generates code that cannot be rendered, you will see a placeholder card that displays the component options during preview in OU Campus.
