We have prepared this guide to help you optimize the way your RSS feed appears on Flipboard and
to give an overview of the submission process.
How do I publish my RSS feed to Flipboard?
You will need to:
provide us with an optimized RSS feed formatted to Flipboard’s RSS specification, and
ensure your RSS feed passes Flipboard’s RSS validation tool.
How do I submit my feed to Flipboard for consideration once optimized?
Once your feed has been optimized and passed the RSS validation tool
you can submit it for consideration via the Publisher Application Form
or by contacting your Partner Manager.
How do I preview my feed while it’s being optimized?
While building your feed we recommend previewing it in either Firefox (on a Mac) or
Internet Explorer (on a PC). Other browser/operating system combinations may not work.
Alternatively you can view the feed in a desktop client such as NetNewsWire (Mac only).
How often should I update my feed?
We recommend no less than 5-10 updates a day, however many publishers post in excess of
30 times a day.
How may total items should my feed contain?
We recommend no less than 50 items.
Can I provide Flipboard with a private RSS feed?
Yes. Some publishers like to create Flipboard feeds that contain exclusive or expanded content
not generally available on the web. You can create this feed just as you would a normal RSS
feed and include the username and password in the URL.
How do I receive custom layouts?
Customized layouts are by invitation only. You will be contacted by a member of our team if
your publication qualifies.
How can I contact Flipboard about optimizing my feed or becoming a publisher?
Due to the number of inquiries we receive the quickest way of getting in contact is to optimize
your feed and complete the Publisher Application Form. Once your application is reviewed by a
member of our team we’ll be in touch. Alternatively contact your Partner Manager with your
updated RSS feed.
