  • Setting up RSS Bot for posting

    I've looked for documentation to set up a user (RSS Bot) for posting articles and could not find anything.

    Is there something somewhere that describes the "How to"?

    There's no difference between an RSS Bot and any other user except that the RSS Bot user is assigned to each RSS feed. I usually strip unnecessary permissions from my RSS Bots as a security measure.

    1. Create user named "RSS BOT"
    2. Go to RSS Feeds -> Add New RSS Feed
    3. Enter your RSS URL
    4. Assign a channel
    5. Assign RSS BOT as the user
    6. Save the feed.
    The blue question marks next to each option for Add New RSS Feed will provide more information for the option.
