How To: Display a Content Feed

What are Content Feeds?

When you have a busy schedule of events to show, there's no need to redesign your tabs every time. There are several content feeds that will show live Notices, Posts, Perks, and Promotions. All you need to do is set the Goes Live and End Dates when creating new content.
