Columns can be added globally or per-channel.
The steps are the same, the only difference being where they are configured. For columns that you want to appear in every channel, it's in the <i>Display</i> tab of the Program Options. For individual channels, go to the <i>Channel</i> tab of the channel's Properties dialog.
Click on the <i>Item pane</i> button and a mini-dialog will pop up with a list of "additional columns" at the bottom. Add a new column and enter the name and metadata value you want to show in that column.
Any item metadata
can be shown but the most commonly-wanted ones (author and time) are available in the droplist.
Most of the standard RSS metadata is not that useful in columns but this feature really comes into it's own when custom metadata is included in the feed. For example, if you look at this screenshot
, you can see my Digg feed showing the extra information that Digg include in their feed. Note that to get this to work, you also need to turn on the Digg metadata module
, to extract this information when the feed updates.
