HungryFEED embeds and displays RSS feeds inline on your pages, posts or sidebar using Shortcodes.
HungryFEED is a plugin that includes an RSS feed within the content of a page or post
To hide the feed title you can use the feed_items parameter to specify which feed fields you wish to appear like so: feed_items="". You can use the HungryFEED editor button to help build your shortcode using a GUI.
The verysimple feed is used as the default value if no URL is provided, or WordPress can't read the URL parameter due to either a syntax error in the shortcode, or a special character in the feed url. Here are some known causes:
In order to use caching, you must have a folder in wp-content called "cache" which is writable by the web server.
To do this, first reate an empty folder in /wp-content/ called "cache" if it does not already exist. Next set permissions of /wp-content/cache/ to 755 or 777 (as necessary on your particular server). Finally, open /wp.config.php and insert the following code anywhere below existing definitions: define('ENABLE_CACHE', TRUE);
If you are not able to do create this folder, you can optionally go to Settings->HungryFEED and set the Cache Duration to 0. However, it is strongly recommended that you do have this directory to enable caching because otherwise WordPress will make a new request to the RSS content provider every time any visitor views your page. This makes your site slower because it has to retrive the RSS content every time. It could also be considered bad etiquette to continually hit your content provider's feed.
To put double-quotes into a feed url, enter %22 instead of the double-quote. This is necessary because the url parameter in the Shortcode is already double-quoted and so you have to use some other character.
First, enter the feed URL in your browser and see if it displays correctly. If the feed appears to be valid, you may try using some of the debug parameters to investigate. If you still cannot figure out the problem, you can submit a ticket for support (See the Technical Support section above)
Shortcodes are not enabled in Widgets by default. However as of HungryFEED 1.3.9 there is an option to enable Shortcode processing in Widgets on the HungryFEED settings page. Be aware that this will enable Shortcode for all plugins, not just HungryFEED. WordPress currently does not support selectively enabling Shortcode for a single plugin, so it is an all-or-nothing option.
