NewsPage Sidebar

The "sidebar" is a column on the NewsPage used for ads or an alternate news feed. "Ads" includes Google ads at Enfeedia's discretion. "Alt Feed" refers to the ability to display a second news feed on your NewsPage in the sidebar, in place of the ads, to enhance your message making your "mini webpage" more valuable. You can also opt for your own Google ads using the Google Adsense program.

Embed Online-Elsewhere Image

If an image is online somewhere on the internet other than Flickr, it can be embeded as your item image by referencing its URL. To reference images on Flickr or to fetch and image from your computer or smartphone (either from its 'camera roll' or equivalent, or by taking the picture while you are posting the item), refer to the next two features.

"Super Simple Syndication"

"Super Simple Syndication" is the embedding of a news feed (or typically portions thereof) on your website without uploading a script to your website. Instead, the one-line code snippet that Enfeedia provides invokes a service at the Enfeedia website to generate the corresponding HTML code which ends up replacing the code snippet. Using Enfeedia's Original Syndication method instead requires fetching from Enfeedia the latest version of the script that generates the HTML code and uploading it to your website; the code snippet then invokes that script now on your website.

Attached FeedBack Comments

Allows readers of a feed to post comments for items, on an item by item basis. Comments are displayed by clicking the "FeedBack" link that appears at the beginning of the item description for feeds enabled for FeedBack. The account name for the person posting a comment is presented immediately preceding the comment, with the account name being a text link that links to the poster's account directory where all feeds for the poster are listed with buttons for accessing them, for syndicating them and for setting up ping alert email. The owner of the feed has the privilege of removing offensive comments in several degrees, ranging from removing the offensive comment to blocking the poster from ever again posting comments on feeds in this account.

Random Item Selection option

Allows you to specify that a number of items from the feed can be randomly selected for display on a website page. The randomly selected items are presented in the same order they would appear had this random selection feature not been used. Whenever the page is opened, a new random selection is made such that the viewer and search engine spider sees fresh content with virtually every visit to the page.

'Editor' feature

"Reporters" and "Editors" are additional persons that you authorize to add news items to your news feeds. An Editor can edit any news item in a feed, whereas a Reporter can edit only those items (s)he posted using a PIN. The account owner creates Editor and Reporter passwords for access permission.

'Calendar' Feeds

Calendar feeds are different from traditional feeds with items shown in reverse chronological posting date in that they are shown in order of event dates. You specify event dates when you post the item.

When you syndicate a Calendar feed, you have a choice of presenting it in either chronological or reverse chronological order. The former is perfect for events that have already taken place that document what happened at the events because the most recent event will be shown at the top of the feed display with the oldest at the bottom. The latter is perfect for events yet to happen because the event coming up next is at the top and the event furthers our into the future is at the borrom.

You can actually syndicate a Calendar feed twice on the same webpage, for example, to present forward and backward looking views of the calendar. And what's at the top of each is most likely the most relevant to the viewer.

The Calendar feed obviates the need for someone posting events to try to manipulate posting dates to get the events in the most human-friendly way.

All of the above descibes how Calendar feed behave when syndicated using Enfeedia's syndication tools.

'Subchannel' Feeds

Subchannel feeds refer to using the Category filter mechanisms Enfeedia provides, such that when you syndicate a feed using Enfeedia's syndication tools, you can specify a filter to present just those matching items.

You could, for example, identify a half dozen filters you would use consistently across all items, and syndicate the feed in a half-dozen different places on your website using the filters, to give the illusion of more than one feed. Because feeds are sometimes referred to as channels, we gave the moniker Subchannel to feeds using this mechanism

Embed YouTube and Vimeo videos into feeds

When posting an item, you will have the opportunity to get code snippets from YouTube and Vimeo to include in the posting form. Instructions are provided at that point. Enfeedia takes care of the rest in generating the feed file, resulting in the video being embedded in the item description.

'Freelance Feature' with Autologging

The "Freelance" feature provides the ability for an account owner to grant to another person access privilege to a specific item on the account owner's feed by associating a password with that item. The freelance writer can edit that item, but cannot originate or delete the item.

A freelance writer can choose to have his/her own Enfeedia account and automatically log items ("Autologging") that are posted onto that freelance item onto another feed (s)he designates as a "log feed", perhaps in his/her account. The log feed accumulates all postings on that particular item in the other feed. In other words, whenever the freelance writer edits that item on the other account, the same item gets posted on the log feed.

The account owner could decide to associate the same password to several items giving the freelancer the ability to access all thos items. And just because one item has a freelance password associated with it does not mean all items must. There is no limit to the number of passwords that can be assigned to feed items up to the number of items in the feed.

Yes
'Headline' Feature

The "Headline" feature provides the ability, when posting an item onto any feed, to automatically post the title (headline) of that item as an item onto a feed designated by the account owner as the headline feed in that account.

The headline is a link back to the full item being posted on the other feed. One can use a headline feed as a "most recent postings" listing which links the user to the full items on other feeds in that account. The headline feed is especially useful if you use a quite a few feeds.

Members-Only News Items

With Members-Only items, you can control access to news item descriptions, to your "members" by special password. This feature combines public access to standard news item descriptions and private access to the members-only news item descriptions. Within a feed marked "Members Only", public vs private access can be controlled on an item by item basis.

Because links in private items cannot be seen by the public, private items can give members access to private online documents while maintaing the privacy of those documents. Keep in mind that privacy is a relative thing because a member could give a non-member the password. No online security measures are any good if a peson privileged with access codes gives those codes away.
