SharePoint News Web Part
Display the latest world news directly in SharePoint with our News Web Part for SharePoint 2010!
Live news feeds in SharePoint
Choose from popular categories such as Top Stories, Entertainment, Sports, Health, Business, Travel and more.
You can even specify your own custom RSS feed!
What better way to keep your SharePoint sites fresh and dynamic?
Multiple data sources
You can choose to retrieve news from MSNBC, CNN, BBC News or News24, from a variety of categories, or you can specify your own custom RSS location if there's a specific feed you'd like to display on your portal.
Other great features
We've tried to make it look and feel like a listing from a real news web site. An article headline, date, description and thumbnail image is displayed for each news item.
News content is cached when it needs to be, so you don't have to worry about bandwidth usage every time someone hits your intranet.
Easy to set up
Simply drag the News Web Part onto a page, choose your news feed and a category to display. It's that simple.
Why did we build this?
Although SharePoint comes with a built-in RSS Viewer web part, it's not tailored towards displaying news content, and it's not included with SharePoint Foundation 2010 (only SharePoint Server 2010).
So we decided to build a news web part that would not only look great and be super easy to use, but also work on both SharePoint Server 2010 and SharePoint Foundation 2010.
The result is our News Web Part for SharePoint 2010!
(PS: Installation is a piece of cake :)
