Use Cases



Creating a feed

Use our built-in options or use a custom endpoint to create a feed.



There are two types of feeds: a built-in feed and a custom feed. The built-in feed is automatically created based on a content model's Reference Name. Custom feeds are built by a developer in Zesty.io's Editor section. Learn more about the built-in and custom feeds below.

Built-in Feed


The built-in feed is automatically created using a content model with the reference name article, articles, or blog_article. To view the built-in feed navigate to your domain slash (/) feed.xml - for example: example.com/feed.xml.

The built-in feed.xml file cannot be modified. If you want a custom feed then you'll need to create a custom endpoint in the Editor.

In the Settings section -> Instance Settings category -> SEO there is a field for overriding the default content models that's used for the feed.xml file. To use this override field locate the ZUID of the content model that you want to create a feed for; copy and paste the ZUID in that override field and save. There is also a toggle to disable this feature when needed.

Custom Feed


Custom feeds can be made by creating a custom endpoint in the Editor section. Navigate to the Editor section and create a new endpoint called, for example: /feed/my-feed.xml . In this file, use a Parsley each loop to loop through the items that you want in your feed. Note: be sure that your XML syntax is correct by previewing your new endpoint before sending it live. Once you're ready to send it live, publish it.
