New RSS Module with Images


A picture is worth a thousand words! And in the world of blogging, that means higher engagement. That is why it is extremely important to display the list of your recent blog content with featured images.

With an update to modules within the template builder, we are now making it easier for our customers to add a featured image to their RSS modules. This new option within modules will equally benefit both marketers and designers.

Without the help of any developers or necessary coding, marketers now have the ability to simply check the “Featured Image” box off and easily display a list of recent COS blog posts with images on any page.

COS designers will find this update valuable as well because now they will be able to use HubL tokens to add styling to an RSS modules with images. Previously they only had the option to add styling to an RSS module that did not have any images. Read more here on how you can add custom styling to a module.
