@ThibautMX,

 

 Sorry, my original post was for someone else.

 

Yes this is possible. I always suggest using HubL functions for RSS feeds because they allow for more control. 

 

if it is two feed for 2 different blogs:

{% set rec_posts = blog_recent_posts('blog 1', 5) %}
{% for rec_post in rec_posts %}
    <div class="post-title">{{ rec_post.name }}</div>
{% endfor %}

{% set rec_posts = blog_recent_posts('blog 2', 5) %}
{% for rec_post in rec_posts %}
    <div class="post-title">{{ rec_post.name }}</div>
{% endfor %}

where blog 1 and blog 2 represent the blog id for 2 different blogs

 

for the same blog but two different topics:

{% set topic_posts = blog_recent_topic_posts('default', 'topic 1', 5) %}
{% for topic_post in topic_posts %}
    <div class="post-title">{{ topic_post.name }}</div>
{% endfor %}

{% set topic_posts = blog_recent_topic_posts('default', 'topic 2', 5) %}
{% for topic_post in topic_posts %}
    <div class="post-title">{{ topic_post.name }}</div>
{% endfor %}

Where topic 1 and topic 2 represent 2 different but available topics from your default blog

 

in both of these examples the 2 functions work independently. you can put them each in their own or custom html modules.  Edit the html in the for loops to be structured how you would like it to appear in the email, and style with inline css or css in the head of your email.

I am wondering if I am looking in the right place here. I just want to show the most recent post per category, for two categories in each email template for hubspot, coming from wordpress. This seems like one of those ultra simple things where there is just no explanation for. 

 

 

Example:

 

https://www.kloecknermetals.com/category/news/category/blog/feed/

 

This is my WP url for RSS Feeds I want to display. Right now my email remplate is showing just the two most recent from both blogs, but I need the most recent one, one from each blog category.

I'm assuming this solution only works for native Hubspot blogs, not for external ones?

It works with external blogs/content too.

@Jsum Do you think you could help me set this up? I have no idea when it comes to custom coding or where to do it at. I am a marketing team of 1...

I used http://www.rssmix.com to accomplish this. It will take multiple RSS feeds and give you one feed URL to use in your Hubspot email.

@BenMartinCURE would you have time to do a screen share to go over this in a little more detail? Perhaps tomorrow or next week sometime?

Apologies for dragging this up again, but is there a way to have this work for external RSS feeds? Or is this only available for Hubspot Native Blogs

The ony solution I've found for this is to use another service to combine those external feeds into one feed. I use rssmix.com for this. It's free.

It works for external RSS feeds too as long as the format of your external feeds is correct. RSS XML format is very loose, so it's easy to make a mistake and see no error. Also, every web app digests RSS feeds differently. If it doesn't work you, you probably need to tweak your external RSS feeds further.

It appears that this is just partial code to setup the RSS feed link.  How do I setup the rest of it?  With the RSS link, custom image, and formatting the same way I have it in my email?
