Updating the News feed tab

Introduction

The News feed tab appears on every personal, organisation and project page. On personal pages it automatically shows the posts from all the other Izele pages you have liked. On organisation and project projects it shows posts from your linked social media accounts and people can also add comments, depending on the tab settings.

Changing the posting/commenting settings

  1. Log in to Izele and go to the page that you manage.
  2. Click on the Edit your details tab Edit tab - small.png and the Posting/feeds sub-tab.
  3. In the Change post/comment permissions section choose the most suitable option for Who can post and Who can comment. In general, your page will be more popular if you allow anyone to post but if you do not have the time to manage the News feed content then click No-one.

Adding Twitter accounts to appear in your News feed

  1. Log in to Izele and go to the page that you manage.
  2. Click on the Edit your details tab Edit tab - small.png and the Posting/feeds sub-tab.
  3. Find the section name Linked Twitter accounts.
  4. In the box “Search for Twitter account” type the name of the Twitter account you want to add. Izele will give you a list of possible names, so select the correct one.
  5. If you only want tweets containing the hashtag #izele then click on the Only include posts with the #izele hashtag? clickbox. This is useful if you only want specific tweets to show from a Twitter account, e.g. you can add a personal Twitter account and add #izele if you want it to appear on your Izele page.
  6. The tickbox Pre-fetch the last 20 recent tweets is automatically selected but you can unselect it if required. If selected, Izele will add the latest tweets from the account (it will find the last 20 from the account and then post the direct tweets, ignoring any retweets).
  7. Click on Add account to then add the Twitter account. It should then appear in the list below.
