I have modified/installed a nifty little tool that converts RSS feeds into email-friendly HTML.

Here’s how we can format our RSS feeds to use within OnGage.

First, head to

Let’s pretend we want to convert ALPAC’s feed to HTML (this tool will work with any feed) You will see two boxes:

  • URL for the XML file:
  • URL for the template file:


  • Our XML File is located at
  • Our URL for the Template File is located at (always use this template even if you use a different website’s feed above!)
    • If someone wants to change the visual appearance, let me know and I can work on a template for you
  • Optional (but recommend): Insert a value in the “Maximum Items” box to control how many stories are linked to. I prefer 4-5, but it’s up to you!
  • Ignore the “NoFuture Items” checkbox.

Click “Submit

You should get an output below that reads

It will look like the screenshot to the right:

What you are looking for is the TEST link:


This TEST link is formatted for HTML, which makes it perfect for our purposes. You can see the formatting below.

Head to OnGage and edit your email with the following:

This will drop the RSS feed (neatly formatted with HTML) right into your email!

Enjoy! If you have any questions let me know.
