MySite Template Tags Explained


Following are the tags in your custom MySite templates and their explanations:

Feed Related tags

%SOURCE_TITLE% / %SOURCE_TITLE()%
This tag will be replaced by the Title of the feed. If you wish to truncate the long feed titles then use %SOURCE_TITLE(length)% where length is the number of the characters to be shown.

Example: %SOURCE_TITLE(30)% will truncate the title to 30 characters
%SOURCE_URL%
This will be replaced by the URL of the feed source.
%SOURCE_FEED_URL%
This will be replaced by the Feed URL.
%SOURCE_IMAGE_URL%
This will be replaced by the URL of the image associated with the feed.

Note: If you are not sure if there's an image associated with the feed you can enclose the %SOURCE_IMAGE_URL% tag within the <if-image>...</if-image> tags. <if-image> will show the image if it exists.
%ADD_TO_MYSITE%
This will be replaced by the +MySite button.
