This is THE most basic question, but here is what I'm looking for. This article, but for a HS  blog. 

 

I want to create an RSS email with the options that are provided if you enter an external blog, in particular the interface that allows you to select how many items you want to display.

If I select HubSpot as the blog I'm creating the RSS email for, I don't see this as an option. I am selecting "instant," as the frequency but I still wanted to populate the email with the most recent three posts.

Obviously I can copy and paste the HubL code  from the wiziwig editor, but I wanted to make the interface more intuitive for my client should he want to make changes himself.

Thanks for any help.

HI,  this is possible,  when you create an RSS email, you have the option to either use and external blog or a HubSpot blog.  If you select the HubSpot blog, then you'll get the options once you go to edit the main email body. 

 

I've recorded a video showing you how to do this.

Hi @Tnichs ,

Thank you. Obviously that looks straightforward enough, but I think I figured out my issue which was slightly different. If I selected "instant" for the notication times rather than a different period, the editor did not display the option for number of posts. Smiley Sad

 

So I wound up selecting weekly and now see the max number of items to display. So I guess if you select instant you'll only be sending subscribers the most recent post that went up but can't include more than that.

HI Maria

 

yes, that's correct,if you select instant, it will send out when the article is published and therefore will only have one item.
