KB Advanced RSS Widget

Similar to the default RSS widget, but gives you complete control over how RSS feeds are parsed for your sidebar.

WordPress comes with a default RSS widget, but you get no control over how the feed shows up in your sidebar. Want more control? The KB Advanced RSS widget gives it to you. With it, you can

  • Decide which RSS fields to display (as opposed to the default RSS widget, which limits you to link, title, and description);
  • Decide how to format the fields (it doesn't have to be a list if you don't want it to be);

Be aware that it's called "advanced" for a reason. You need to know some HTML to use this fully. Also, please note that this is a widget, so you need to be using a widgets-enabled theme.

Before upgrading to v2.8 of the plugin, read this: Because the WordPress developers dramatically re-wrote the widgets API in WP 2.8, I had to rewrite this plugin completely. Updating to v2.8 of the plugin will correct many annoying bugs. But, alas, it will also (most likely) cause you to lose all the options you may have set in a previous version of this plugin. Sorry. I don't foresee this happening more than once.

If you post your support questions as comments below, I probably won't see them. If the FAQs don't answer your question, you can post support questions at the KB Advanced RSS plugin page on my site.
