2. Open the site

Download the nomad-dreamer-widget.zip and open the NomadDreamers-start.mu file. Switch to Design mode and scroll down to the white section below the RSS Blog Widget area of the site. This is where you'll add the widget.

Open NomadDreamers file

3. Add the widget

Open the Library panel (Windows > Library) then open the RSS Blog folder and drag the RSS Blog widget onto the canvas.

4. Resize and position the widget

Select the widget and drag a corner handle to resize it to fit the width of the content area.

5. Add an RSS feed

Select the blog widget and click the blue options button to open the RSS Blog Options panel. In the RSS Feed URL field, change the default feed to http://nomad-dreamer.tumblr.com/rss. Enable the Only show text option and disable the Show author option. Set the Initial columns to 1.

Tip: You can add most blogs to the widget as long as you have the RSS Feed URL. Look out for the orange RSS feed icon on a web page to locate the feed.

6. Style the text

Select the RSS Blog widget and use the text panel to change the font to Museo Sans > 100.

Tip: You can change the relative size and color of the headline, date, and author in the widget options panel. You can also adjust the number of columns used initially by the widget.

7. Preview

Choose File > Preview Page in Browser and click News at the top of the page to jump down to the RSS Blog Widget section. Click on an item in the blog to go directly to the blog article.
