RSS content is maintained within a Sense "feed document" that is directly editable for customization such as namespace extension.
The plugin provides automated RFC822 date entry and atom self-reference update.
A Site Manager is provided to support image and enclosure upload and more general website maintenance.
New "feed documents" are created from RSS 0.91, 2.0, blogChannel and Apple itunes-podCast templates supplied with the installation.
Custom templates may be easiliy created.
All "feed documents" are associated to the plugin's "Editor Style" that defines and enables dynamic loading of the GUIs' into the Edit Environment at the appropriate time.
An integral Help includes a Getting Started tutorial using sample feeds.
Help on feed customization is provided with specific examples on namespace extension including xmlns:atom.
News item descriptions may include headed sections, paragraphs, bullets, (thumbnail) images, internet hyperlinks and email addresses for that extra HTML styling.
