2. Select the feed you would like to edit.

3. Select the Edit button   on the top right of the page.

4. Edit the Feed URL to either remove or add a faculty member using the following guidelines:

 

To Add a Faculty Member:

The Feed URL should begin with: “https://wesep.wesleyan.edu/cgi-bin/open_cgi/faculty_xml.cgi?” as shown below.

The URL is of the following form:

https://wesep.wesleyan.edu/cgi-bin/open_cgi/faculty_xml.cgi?faculty=user1&faculty= user2&faculty=user3(…)

To add a user to a feed, edit the link to include “&faculty=username”. It is proper form for the list to be in alphabetical order in accordance with the last name of the user.

 

Note: The first member appended to the list does not have to be preceded by the ampersand symbol (&). “faculty=username” and “&faculty=username”

To Remove a Faculty Member:

Locate the username of the member you wish to remove from the feed. Remove the “&faculty=username” from the Feed URL.

Note: If the member you wish to remove from the feed is the first member listed in the link, remove “faculty=username” from the Feed URL.
