What information is in the Feed items? Heading link
The primary content shown in RSS feeds on Red is the content in the “Excerpt” text block in the “Intro Text” area of the page. We recommend a sentence or two that summarizes the post.
Note: this text would also show in any highlight components that are used for that post type.
RSS Feeds will also show the title of the post that will serve as the link to the post and the date it was published.
