How to show all of the activity from the entire IowaKofC.org website on your own Profile Page

It's nice to be able to go to your own Profile Page (website) and see what all is going on across the entire IowaKofC.org platform. It is relatively easy to set up an RSS feed on your Profile Page to do just that. A short set of instructions is below.

Sign in to the IowaKofC.org website. Go to your Profile Page. Find the RSS box. If you haven't done much with your Profile Page, the RSS box is probably somewhere down lower in the left column. Once you've found the RSS box, click the Edit button and fill in the fields with the information shown in the picture below.

Once you've filled in the fields, click the Save button. Immediately, you'll be receiving information about all of the "likes," events, news updates, and more from across the entire IowaKofC.org website. See the picture below as an example of an actively streaming RSS feed after having clicked the Save button as instructed above:

After having set this up, simply by going to your Profile Page you will be able to know about all of the activity by any member who does anything, anywhere on any Profile Page on IowaKofC.org. You'll find that having such information streaming on your Profile Page enlivens the Profile Page and gives you (and anyone else who goes to your Profile Page) easy access to all of your activity and the activity of any brother Knight or friend who uses IowaKofC.org

St. Patrick's Council 11296 has a good suggestion (below), so here's the text (and other information) needed for the RSS feed:


Title: Activity across the entire IowaKofC.org website
URL: http://iowakofc.org/activity/log/list?fmt=rss
Display: Titles Only
Show: 20 items

I'd suggest adding the text to the guide in addition to the image, so that copy/paste can be utilized, especially helpful for the URL.

Ok, so you're an individual member of IowaKofC.org and you've got a personal Profile Page (website) here on IowaKofC.org. What do you do with a Profile Page?

After you've done what it says in the instructions, you might want to consider making your Council and/or Assembly and/or District Profile Page your home page on your web browser. Then, every time you turn on your browser, you'll have all of the Iowa Knights of Columbus activities instantly at your fingertips.
