SharePoint RSS Viewer Web Part XML Fail

As mentioned the other day: I thought an RSS reader web app for recent PNW pubs would be a nice addition to the hub home page.

I found a short article on how to add an RSS reader:

https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Add-RSS-feeds-from-external-sites-to-your-site-52C26FB9-F1E7-44B7-B684-DEA7B5788590

The point is to embed our 20 most recent TreeSearch publications, available via RSS at:

https://www.treesearch.fs.fed.us/feeds/top20.xml?id=PNW

Did not work.

Tried this:

http://feeds.feedburner.com/test-pnw-pubs

Did work, but formatting was wonky (see image below).

Tried pure XML:

http://feeds.feedburner.com/test-pnw-pubs?format=xml

Did not work.

Prefer to think “it’s SharePoint, not me”

Do we want to let our SP expert take a crack at this?

I ended up using this external widget – works for now, may not work “forever.”
