How can I build an RSS feed for a website page?

I'm working on a website page that would benefit from an RSS feed. In a perfect world, if I could save a Hubspot Module as an XML file, I could use HUBDB and HUBL to generate the content and be good to go. 

 

The way I am doing it now is generating the content using a HUBL loop and writing XML inside of an HTML file. Then, I export that file and save it as an XML file in the file manager. 


The issue is that I have to do that every time there's an update. 

 

Is there an official way of handling this? Are workflows powerful enough to save and upload files to file manager?

How can I build an RSS feed for a website page?

If you go to the blogs back end page, on the left side of the page under "more tools" there is an RSS feed. Is that all you need, or were you looking for an automatic solution? There are also ways to pull blog posts with the API if you needed to show them on a non hubspot site.

The issue is that I'm not using blog posts or a blog. I want to create a custom RSS feed for a website page.

You could try using an RSS generater like fetchrss.com to make the process a bit easier, but to my knoledge there isnt any native hubspot tool that does that for you.

Yea, that generator is nice. Technically, that would work but the URL would be located at fetchrss.com instead of my domain. It would be perfect otherwise. 

 

Thanks for your help.
