> Weather Reports
To add weather information to any of your custom pages, simply open the content configuration page (bring up your custom page, click the "Content" link at the top) and scroll down to the bottom of the page.There's a button there which will take you to a page where you can add cities from many different countries to your weather box.
Weather boxes many contain any number of cities and you may have several weather boxes on any single page.
> RSS Feeds
The default RSS feeds proposed by NewsIsFree only contain the last 5 five items for a given source, with no description.
You may create your own custom feeds which contain all the items, with the description (if available and other options).
If you are subscribed already, you may check out your feeds now.
These feeds are intended to be used by you only and you are expected not to share the links to the RSS files. They are available in RSS format for PERSONAL and NON-COMMERCIAL use only (see our Terms of Service).
