    I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.  As are building out sitefinity, we have a group that is focused solely on generating content that needs to be available at go-live.  We're talking about thousands of content items that will be generated outside the system (as the system won't be ready for content in take until about a month b4 go-live) so i was hoping I could find a way to take content stored in some format and do a mass content load into the system.  Does anyone know of a way to do this in Sitefinity?

    Thanks!

    Hi Shane,

    If you can use Rss feed, we provider  Rss feed item importer that will generate content items based on the rss items you set. Another option is using some custom tool that works in a similar way like our migration tool

    RSS feeds are certainly an option as we are planning to utilize google docs to being the initial collection.  Where can I find more information about the RSS item importer?  Specifically I need to find out what the requirements are and if there are any limitations or formatting constraints I need to worry about as the content collection begins.

    Hello Shane,

    Here is the documentation on Feeds & notifications. You can import from rss, atom nad e-mail and publish the imported content as news and blogs. To observe how the feed is read from our rss reeder simply create a feed for one of your Sitefinity blogs and observe the xml output. Then you will know what content is read and which tag is applied to it and also you will be able to configure the mappings to suit your requirements.
