How do I get content from another web page?

Use the content feed template to embed the content of another web page. When the source page updates, your retrieving page updates automatically. The instructions below describe how to:

Create a new retrieving page

  1. Browse to the page under which you want to create the new retrieving page.
  2. Go to Edit > Create a new page.
  3. Under the Change page template section, select the Change button.
  4. Select Content feed from the list of standard templates.
  5. Choose whether to retrieve content From a Sitebuilder page or From another web page (i.e. external to warwick.ac.uk):

  6. Enter the Web address (URL) of the source page:
    • For a SiteBuilder page, omit the http://www2.warwick.ac.uk part. You can use the page picker tool to browse to the source page.
    • For an external page, include the http://example.com part.
  7. Select whether or not relative links should be rewritten to point to content relative to the source page. When this checkbox is not selected, links are relative to the retrieving page. (If you're unsure, leave this checkbox selected.)
  8. Enter the URL, page heading, title bar caption and link caption. (For a description of these properties, see: How do I create a new blank page?)
  9. Enter the keywords and page contact.
  10. When you have finished editing the page properties, select the Create new page button. You'll see a confirmation message with a link to view the new page.

Change an existing page to use the content feed template

  1. Browse to the page you want to change.
  2. Go to Edit > Edit page properties.
  3. Expand the Change page template & options section, then select the Change button.
  4. Select Content feed from the list of standard templates.
