WP RSS Multi Importer
[resolved] Feed display & refresh (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I'd like to make use of the shortcode parameters for displaying a feed on a page. The feed displays fine, but none of the additional shortcode paramaters (hd size for example) seem to have any effect on the output. I've never been able to get this to work on any theme - they don't work on TwentyTwelve for example. I'm assume there's something fundamental I have wrong here? I can make changes via CSS.

    I've setup feed to post as a test expecting blog posts to be automatically created, but this isn't happening. Activating feed to post has not created any cron job either?

    Using a feed on a page is my preferred option but can you tell me how I can refresh the feed? The same 4 headlines have been scrolling for 2 hours now.

    Thanks for your help,
    Paul.

    if you are using the shortcode (which it sounds like you're doing), everytime the page gets refreshed the RSS feed is pulled again - if there are no new items in the rss feed, then no new items will show up on your site.

    You can change the parameters using the shortcode, but as it says in the admin page, that only works works on some template - not the scrolling template - so that you need to handle with css (go into the templates/templates.css file for that.

    Hi Allen,

    Thanks that answers my question. I'll need to setup some kind of automatic page refresh.

    I've made the changes I needed to with CSS now.

    Thanks,
    Paul.
