Is it possible to consume an external RSS feed with the feeds module - without turning the content into nodes - and display it in a view? I attempted to do this using the aggregator module as described here: External RSS Feed in View and it looked great at first, but then I discovered this bug where the aggregator does not update. https://www.drupal.org/node/2344795. I am now trying to do the same thing with the feeds module, but I don't see a way to have it not create nodes out of the data. I just want it to be dynamic and not create content nodes on my site. Thanks for the help.

I have sucessfully used Views XML Backend in situations like this.

  • Worked like a charm. Thanks so much. I had not heard of that module before.
