NewsPage

newsPage is an easy to use plugin that allows you to have a headline aggregation page on your blog.

  1. In an FTP program, open the wp-content/plugins folder
  2. Put the entire newspage folder into that folder
  3. Browse to your WordPress administration panel (http://www.example.com/wp-admin).
  4. Click the "Plugins" link in the top right menu.
  5. In the list of inactive plugins, check the box next to "newsPage", and click the "Activate" button.
  6. Click the "newsPage" link on your menu.
  7. You'll have 2 options, the first option lets you manage your RSS Feeds so you can add as many as you want, the second option lets you control your cache settings, etc.

To display your NewsPage on a page of your blog, create a page and add the following line to it anywhere: <!--newspage--> or [newspage]

Or, alernatively, you can also add the following php code to a template on your blog: <?php if (function_exists('newsPage')) newsPage(); ?>

If you want to limit how many feeds are displayed, like if you were displaying a couple on a frontpage, and the rest on another page, you could call it like this: <?php if (function_exists('newsPage')) newsPage(2); ?>

You can also specify topics for each feed, you can then call a list of those topics using the follow: <!--newstopics--> or [newstopics limit=5 topic="web design"] or by placing the following directly in a template: <?php if (function_exists('newsTopics')) newsTopics(); ?>

With this functionality, you can choose to list only feeds in a certain topic by the following: [newspage limit=5 topic="web design"] or <?php if (function_exists('newsPage')) newsPage(20,"web design"); ?>

This will tell the plugin to display your activity feed at that location.
