This widget displays the list of RSS feeds added by the user on his/her Settings Basic Options page. This widget differs from the RSS Feed in that:
- Its format is predetermined - it is comparable to the RSS Feed widget's "Not Paged/Not Filtered" view, displaying no excerpts.
- It displays multiple feeds. The RSS Feed widget is used for only one feed.
By default, this widget is available to users to load onto their dashboard.
This widget only displays feeds if they have been configured by the user on his/her Settings Basic Options page.
