EZ-DigiSign RSS Feeds

This tutorial will teach you what RSS feeds are, where to find them, and how to add the to your digital sign.


RSS feeds let you stream News and other updates to your DigiSign.  For example you can put an RSS feed from the New York Times, and have a steady stream of news headlines displayed on your Digital Sign.

How to Add an RSS Feed

1. Login to your EZ-DigiSign account and go to EZ-SignManager



2. Click Add to add a new sign



3. Choose RSS from the dropdown.




4. Set the duration to 45 seconds and click Next




5. Write a title for example 'New York Times'.



6. Click Add



7. Copy and Paste the url to your RSS feed, and then push Go.
For this example, copy the following link and paste it into your RSS feed:
http://www.nytimes.com/services/xml/rss/nyt/HomePage.xml



If you Submit and Preview the sign, it will look like this...



So far it looks pretty nice. Each Headline stays for about 10 seconds, and then scrolls down to the next headline.
However it's a little boring at the moment. Let's see if you can spice it up!

Custom Options

You can customize background colors and images, control how long each headline stays on the screen, and more!
