D7 - Working With Content - Live Feeds - Localist - Feed Displayed In Block View

8. Completed Localist Live Feed Integration

Live Feeds will create a block.

This can be displayed in a few different ways.

The block can be placed using Contexts, or the Block Manager, or a custom Paragraph Bundle can be created to show a block display from the OSU Live Feeds view.

In our example, a display from the OSU Live Feeds view is displayed in a custom three-column paragraph bundle.

Please note that, while a user with an author/group author role can create the Feed content, to display the feed, an architect will either have to place the block using Contexts or the Block Manager, or they will have to include the Live Feeds view display in a custom Paragraph bundle that contains a Viewfield.
