MultiFeedSnap

MultiFeedsnap is a simple plugin that will render multiple RSS feeds to your post or page.

Usage

Enter the following tags in your post:

[feedsnap]feedurl[/feedsnap]

where feedurl is the url of the feed you wish displayed.

To choose the number of posts you wish displayed from each feed (let's say 8), use:

[feedsnap, 8]feedurl[/feedsnap]

When the number of posts tag option is omitted, the default is used (set to 5 but can be changed in the code as described in Installation).

Multiple sets of tags are possible, separated by whatever content (html, text, etc.) you wish. MultiFeedSnap only replaces the [feedsnap] tags with the formatted feed data, and so all other formatting is retained.

Example:

<p>------------------------------------------------------</p>
<h3>Digg.com</h3>
[feedsnap, 10]http://digg.com/rss/index.xml[/feedsnap]

<p>------------------------------------------------------</p>
<h3>Institution of Structural Engineers</h3>
[feedsnap, 2]http://www.istructe.org/news/rss.asp[/feedsnap]

<p>------------------------------------------------------</p>
<h3>Richard Dawkins</h3>
[feedsnap]http://feeds.feedburner.com/richarddawkins[/feedsnap]
<p>------------------------------------------------------</p>
