A Remote News Feed block will now appear at the right of your site. 


When you Click here to configure this block to display RSS feeds you will see RSS feeds that have already been created. Search to see if the one you want is already there. If it is, chose it by selecting the checkbox and Save changes. This will then add the RSS feed to your site.
