RSS Feed Reader is a user control that can be used to consume and display an external RSS feed (Atom is not supported).

Control features include:

* RSS feed caching - the feed is stored in the application cache for 10 minutes resulting in increased performance, and controlled load of the feed source site.
* Request timeout interval - if the source feed cannot be retrieved within the timeout interval, your page will be served with a button in the control display area that allows the user to force a feed refresh. For user-initiated refresh requests the timeout interval is increased with 10 seconds.
* Displays full, partial, or no item description - in case of a partial description setting, all HTML tags are stripped out.
* Enclosure support.

To see it action for various use cases - please visit our RSS Feed Reader demo page.

Deployment instructions, detailed description of all custom properties, and default CSS classes are provided on the download page.
