Adding, Deleting, and Configuring Feeds Sources

If the Feeds package has already been setup on your Composer site, then you have control over adding and deleting sources for that package.

Adding a Feeds source

To add a source in Feeds, first click the "Add Social Media Source" button in the top left of the Feeds moderation console.

You'll get the popup window of various social platforms that work with Feeds. Select your platform and then the popup window will display the available options within that social platform for sources, such as an account name or hashtag. Type in the relevant source and click the red "Create Source"button, then the Feeds console should show a spinning icon and refresh after a few seconds. Please note this could take up to 30 seconds in some cases.

Feeds sources can come from a wide range of social media platforms, including:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Instagram
  • YouTube
  • Google+
  • Tumblr
  • Pinterest
  • Blogs
  • Soundcloud
  • LinkedIn
  • Flickr
  • Vimeo

Not all social platforms offer the same options for possible types of sources in Feeds. Each social platform places different restrictions on their API.

Deleting a Feeds source

You can delete a source in Feeds by clicking the "Social Media Sources" tab, then the arrow next to the desired source.

A dropdown menu of options will appear under that source. Click delete, then press OK in the popup warning window. If you're deleting multiple sources, the popup warning may only appear the first time.

Configure Feeds sources

Your Feeds package has a set number of maximum allowed sources, and the number varies by package. If you reach your limit and wish to add additional sources, please reach out to your Client Success representative.

If you wish to delete an existing source to add a new source in its place, you can do so in the Feeds console. Please note that any Feeds elements on your website will also need to be updated to show that new source in the results of that Feeds element.
