requirements or documentation for RSS feeds in Canvas

We posted a number of RSS feeds in the Announcement section.

Some work and some don't.

Does Canvas have any documentation on what the RSS feed must contain or must not contain in order for it to work in Canvas?

 

Thanks

Hi @office9 ,

I'm sorry to hear that some of your rss feeds are working and some are not - frustrating when you don't get consistent results.

We do have How do I add an external RSS feed to an announcement, but that article only covers adding the feeds, not what the required elements are for making them work correctly.  Because the feeds themselves are generated outside Canvas it is difficult for us to know which will work and which won't.  Have you been able to test the feeds in other rss aggregators to see if the feeds themselves are working correctly?  Sorry I couldn't give a more helpful answer.
