 To include items from the feed in a test message you will need to have retrieved some feed items. After entering the feed URL you can save the campaign, retrieve feed items, and then switch back to editing the campaign to send a test message. To include items from the feed in a test message you will need to have retrieved some feed items.

-If there are no items for the feed then the plugin will include ​some test items.+Depending on when you create the campaign, the embargo, and the repeat interval, feed items that are retrieved might or might not be included in that first campaign. This depends on whether an item's published date is within the window ​for the campaign (later than the embargo - repeat interval). 
 + 
 +For example, if you create a campaign with a daily repeat several days in advance of the embargo then any feed items retrieved will not be included in the first campaign because their published date is too early. 
 + 
 +But if you create a campaign with a weekly repeat two days in advance of the embargo, ​then any feed items can be included in the first campaign, because their published date is within one week of the embargo. 
 + 
 +To avoid confusion when sending a test message, ​the plugin will not select both items that can be included in the first campaign and items that will not included in the first campaign. 
 + 
 +It will select only items that can be included in the first campaign, if there are any. If there are no such items then it will select items that will not be included in the first campaign. If there are none of those then some sample items will be used. 
 + 
 +It will also display a warning message on the RSS tab when a test message would contain ​items that will not appear in the first campaign.{{ :​plugin:​rss11.png?nolink |}}
