I am in the process of developing a new intranet for my company. With this, we are rolling out IE7 on all computers.
All RSS content currently uses a xslt stylesheet. However, in IE7 by default I have noticed that all custom stylesheets are ignored and instead IE7 renders the feed in it's own RSS stylesheet.
Cutting a long story short, I need to disable the RSS viewer which is integrated in to IE7. I have done this via:
Tools > Internet Options > Content > Feeds (Settings) > Un-tick 'Turn on feed reading view'. This performs the desired effect, however I need to perform this task company wide. Thus far I have been unable to find a setting to disable this in Group Policy.
I have found the "RSS Feeds" settings in:
User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > RSS Feeds. One of the options in here is "Turn off the feed list" which gives the explanation of "This policy setting prevents users from using Internet Explorer as a feed reader. This setting has no impact on the RSS Platform" However I believe this means that it will disable the user from accessing the feed list located in the favourites canter.
In short, I am looking for a registry change or Group Policy setting that will disable the IE7 integrated RSS functionality, effectively replicating the task of un-ticking the 'Turn on feed reading view' in Internet options.
