I am trying to import a google alert, which I have chosen to be a feed, onto the homepage of a drupal site I am creating.
The goal is to be able to automatically display the results of the rss feed but also to not publish everything right away as I would like to potentially screen the results before they are posted.
I just want to link to the articles respective webpages not necessarily store them as articles within our own drupal site.
I am trying out the module feeds http://drupal.org/node/622696
It might be a lot more than what I need but maybe the only available module. If you know of something better that suits my needs let me know.
I am new to drupal and this module required me to also install:
CTools Job Scheduler
both of those were listed in the readme, but when I went to the modules admin page I was told I was missing:
So I went ahead and installed those as well. Is it normal that I had to install those even though they weren't included in the readme at all?
In any case.. I was able to import a feed but it seems to store all rss feed items as articles.
I also do not see any settings for setting how many posts should be visible, how much content should be shown right away (just want headlines). Although I may need to dig deeper into the code to change this stuff.
I guess what I am really asking is if there is a better/easier way to do what I want.
