Adobe Muse lets you dynamically embed a Wordpress or Tumblr blog on your website. Embedding a blog feed within your Adobe Muse site is similar to embedding a YouTube video, where Adobe Muse requires you to access the RSS feed URL. You can then use the Easy Feed widget to embed blogs of most platforms.

Adding a blog feed to a site is an easy way to display latest posts, news, and updates, dynamically. You can configure the Easy Feed widget to display latest updates first, media (images or videos) with non-Wordpress blogs, and resize the component per your design needs.

Download the RSS Blog widget

  1. Open this link (the Muse Widgets directory) in a browser.

  2. Click the Get This Widget button.

    The RSS Blog widget is downloaded to your default Downloads folder. Depending on the browser you used to download the widget and the operating system on your computer, the Downloads folder is configured differently.
