How to add Joomla Security Announcements to the backend of my Joomla?

Solution

As part of providing the latest Joomla security information to the community, the Joomla Security Team has launched and supports an RSS feed.

You can add that feed to the administrative area of your Joomla by following these instructions: 

  • Login to your Joomla site’s Administration area
  • From the menu, select Extensions -> Module Manager
  • From within the Module Manager, select Administrator
  • From the Icon Menu (top right), select New
  • From the choices available, select Feeds Display
  • At the Feed Module configuration page, enter the appropriate details (Title (EG: Security Announcements) and Feed as a minimum)
  • Enter http://feeds.joomla.org/JoomlaSecurityNews in the Feed URL
  • Select cpanel as the position
  • Optional Select Apply from the Icon Menu (top right) and place the feed in the order where you want to see it in the Admin Control Panel
  • Select Save from the Icon Menu (top right)
  • Go back to your Admin Site main page (Site -> Control Panel) and you should see your newly built Security Feed.
