JP's Get RSS Feed
[resolved] my site is broken after trying to get plugin working (3 posts)

    I added that simple short code in my post, after activating the plugin and entering in the settings, providing the correct url to get rss from, changed to 750 characters but my post page upon viewing it was blank, I cleard cache too.
    So went back to read your notes again, and because I am not a developer I didnt really understand how to add this extra code to the function.php, I blundered into the bottom of function.php and added
    if (function_exists('jp_get_rss_feed_items')) {
    jp_get_rss_feed_items(array(
    'url' => "http://somefeed.com/rss",
    'numitems' => 10,
    'cssclass' => 'myclass',
    'getdesc' => true,
    'show' => true
    ));
    }
    but it returned this error, now my site is broken and even though I removed the code, saved again, it still is broken, I cant see any lined rows so I cant locate where the error is.

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/webde115/public_html/test1/wp-content/themes/esplanade/functions.php on line 2129

    Are there any other plugins that post rss from external sites because your one doesnt work? thanks

    There are plenty of other plugins that pull RSS feeds. You can search the repo for keywords "rss" or "feed".

    It doesn't make sense that you fully removed the code you added and the site is still broken. Did you uninstall the plugin as well?

    Check the number of characters in the feed item description textbox. Try increasing it.

    Remember that the character limit cuts off the item description. If the item description contains HTML and you cut it off in the middle, you are leaving unclosed HTML tags which can affect the rest of the page.

    For the record, the plugin works. Here it is in action on the demo page:

    Hi thank you for your reply.
    I cleared the broken pages and yes I have searched for other rss plugins, and currently am trying out RSS Multi Importer but I have totally not been able to get that working either, it just propagated each RSS newsfeed snippet into a whole post page of its own, which is not what I wanted,
    see http://www.test1.ehostnz.co.nz/ and you will see what I mean.

    I wanted it to look like this:
    http://student1.greylynncounsellling.co.nz/
    (I have the JP's get RSS in this one.)
    The problem was, that the plug in doesnt work in a mobile device, (nor does another plugin for column grid.... and it is showing fine in this above URL on a computer. That is why I think I will have to start again on my search, as it must be compatible with a mobile device.

    I think I may have to solicit help from a developer and pay him to get it working....
