Really Simple Syndication, or as we call it – RSS, is one of the easiest methods of distributing and curating tons of content, across the Internet. From the reader’s perspective it’s a matter of adding the feed URL to the RSS reader and that’s it.
For the publisher who’s using a Content Management System (CMS) like WordPress, it’s actually little or no work. The RSS feed generation and upkeep is handled internally by WordPress. All you have to do is display a RSS feed icon in your sidebar or footer or other areas in your site to let your visitors know that there’s an RSS feed there. Even that’s optional.

Tables are a convenient way of displaying data to your website users: information is well-organized, structured, and people always know how to find what they need within table columns and rows.

If only it could be as easy as in spreadsheet applications!

GravityView seems to do just that. GravityView is a plugin developed by Zack Katz at Katz Web Services, the developer behind the original Gravity Forms Directory add-on plugin. After deciding to improve on his directory plugin, he came up with this – an easier to use and more powerful version.
