blogsiread

Displays user-definable content from other blogs (via wordpress Links [RSS]) as a widget in your blog in a highly customisable format.

How do I use this?

1) Add a link (Links->Add New) 2) Fill in the Name, Web Address and RSS Address 3) Also choose an appropriate category (e.g. Blogroll). 4) Save your link 5) Add the widget "blogsiread" to your sidebar (Appearance->Widgets) 6) Select the appropriate options (e.g. Site Title Source selects between Name (in point 2) or the website name given in the feed) 7) Also select the category that you chose in point 3. 8) Click save. 9) Enjoy.

Not all of the blogs are showing up on my sidebar?

If the server is unable to connect or retrieve the feeds in time, it skips it.

This is a safety feature. Tying up the server's resources trying to retrieve data from a slow page is bad for your webhost's health. Not loading the page in your browser quickly because the server is still trying to retrieve the data is bad for YOUR health.

Until the feeds can be solely retrieved by a browser instead of the server (upcoming feature!) or until I can code some ajax to augment the loading speeds, this will always be an issue.

What if I want to donate?

Donate? Very nice of you to ask that question. At the moment however, I am not in need of donations. If you'd like to feel like your gave something back, help out at your local charity or donate to them, or pay it forward however you wish.
