    Is this possible? I would like to create an RSS feed of recently uploaded/published documents but the feature in Sitefinity 5 only gives me blogs, lists, or forums.

    Hi Michael,

    In order to add documents to the feed, you need to go to Administration >> Settings >> Publishing >> Types, 

    Create new with this name:

    And for assembly name you can enter again:

    This will include the documents titles in the feed. This is because only the title of the document item is indexed by the feed, not the binary data (actual text). This is why the Documents aren't included by default in the feeds content type. If you want the feed to index binary data, you will have to implement a custom pipe that does this. Information on how to do this you can find here:

    Another approach is to create a new List Item (with rss feed) along with document publishing, where you could add more information about the published document.
