Latest Feed

When to use

Your library may publish frequently updated web content such as news and/or blog and you may want the latest updates automatically added to your website.

If you want to display a list of latest posts in the sidebar on all pages of your website, use the WordPress built-in RSS widget. You can add it by going to Appearance -> Widget -> RSS. Please note: only a site administrator can create a site-wide RSS widget.

If you want to display the title of the latest post on a specific page, use this shortcode.
