Default content presentation
Awasu gives you a great deal of control over how your feed content is presented.
Here you can configure the default settings that will be used to control the presentation of each channel. These can be overridden individually for each channel in their Channel Properties dialog.
The template file controls the overall appearance of the channel summary pages. You can also configure which feed items you want to see, how far back you want to see them from and how the feed content should be presented. Feed items can either be shown one at a time, or as a river of news.
You can also add columns to item panes, highlight items of interest and modify the feed content before it is shown to you.
