Using the channel bar

The channel bar displays the name of the feed category and the name of the feed subscription separated by a forward slash (/).

To display the channel bar:
  1. From the portlet menu, select Personalize, Edit Shared Settings, or Configure. The General tab is selected, by default.
  2. Click the Appearance tab.
  3. Depending on the presentation style in use in the IBM Syndicated Feed Portlet, click either the Headlines or the Channel link.
  4. Enable the Override appearance defaults check box.
  5. Enable the Show Channel title bar check box.
  6. Click Save.
  7. Click Done on the Subscriptions page.
The channel bar is displayed at the top of each feed when you view the feeds.

Besides providing a visual demarcation between consecutive feeds, the channel bar enables you to expand and collapse feeds.
