I want to automatically post news items from an RSS feed (on website X.com, let’s say) to a Facebook Group I own.
I have it working to a point. It actually runs when a new news item is published on X,com, and a post gets made on my FB Group.
However, the link in the FB post is not a link to the new news item. It’s a link to the feed address, which is what I entered as the link URL in the Setup Action section. And when I click on it, I just see the raw XML file for the RSS feed.
I suspect it has something to do with how I am specifying the Link URL. (?). There’s an option there to “Insert Data”. but I’ve played with that and still get nowhere.
What am I missing?

This should be a dynamic value mapped from the trigger step for the article link using the ‘Custom’ mapping option.
Make sure to the trigger step, which should return a data points from the RSS feed that you can then use to map to the actions steps.
One of those data points should be a “link” to the article from the RSS feed.
