New tutorial on creating posting campaigns

We have created a new tutorial about creating posting campaigns for users of all levels. We’ve also covered some latest changes in service interface in this tutorial. So, feel free to take a few minutes to watch it.
Along with a step-by step video tutorial we also provide a text version. You will never miss a word.

301 redirect support in content feeds
RSS or any other content feed is a file which is stored on content provider’s server. We use feed’s URL to read it. But sometimes content provider needs to replace this file. After replacement feed’s URL is changed and those who uses old URLs won’t be able to read and follow latest updates in this feed.
And here is where ‘301 redirect’ comes into place. Content provider can set up ‘301 redirect’ and old URL will be redirected to a new file location. But not all feeds’ readers can work with redirects.
Now RSS Ground can easily follow feeds URLs which have 301 or other redirects. You don’t need to change feed URLs in your feeds reader, posting campaigns and content widgets if any changes occur.

New LinkedIn posts links
Some of you could notice that links to latest posts shown in LinkedIn posting campaigns were broken. LinkedIn has changed its posts links structure. This did not effect the process of posting itself. But after a fix all links to new posts in campaign work correctly.

Content Widget fix
We have fixed an option of limiting a number of characters used for article description in Content Widget. Before the fix when using this option you could corrupt image links which were used in article description. Now this option works correctly.
We will continue updating Content Widget tool.
Content Widgets are another way of sharing fresh content to your website comparing to posting campaigns. It will help you generating a code snippet which can be place to any spot of your website and display latest news and updates from your content feeds.

Facebook token update
If you use Facebook content feeds or Facebook posting campaigns, you know that every 60 days you receive an email form us asking to update your Facebook token.
To update your token you don’t need to do this for each posting campaign or for each Facebook feed. Just authenticate your Facebook account either in Facebook Feeds or in one of your Facebook posting campaigns. All other feeds and campaigns will be updated automatically.
Right now you can be sure that your other posting campaigns are authenticated. In campaign editor it will tell what Facebook user it is connected to.
