This article is designed to help you if you are wanting to connect external content sources (RSS/Atom feeds) to your Cerkl Broadcast system and prioritize your entries.

Prioritize Feeds

In any RSS or Atom feed, Cerkl Broadcast treats all items or entries as updates with normal priority. Cerkl Broadcast's xmlns (XML namespace) enables users to specify the content priority and also its type. For more information on how to include our xmlns in source feeds, check out this article.

Please Note: Items in a feed must satisfy these four requirements to be pulled in:

  1. The item’s date must be properly formatted and must be at least an hour old.

  2. The item must have a date, title, or link.

  3. The RSS item must have a description.

  4. The item’s title must be different than the title of another post from the past 30 days.
