wp rss aggregator plugin (5 posts)

    I am trying to add a news aggregator page to my blog and I'm hitting a brick wall. I am trying to use wp-rss-aggregator and I'm obviously missing something basic. Is there a step-by-step guide to using this plugin, if at all possible including its relation to simplepie?

    I have tried simply dropping the shortcode [wp-rss-aggregator] into a page and that all that shows is "[wp-rss-aggregator]" despite that fact that I added 2 feeds using the RSS Aggregator option in the Settings menu.

    What am I missing?

    hi,

    I had the same problem. I realised you had to add parameters. Try
    [wp_rss_aggregator date_before='<h2>' date_after='</h2>']
    which I found under installation. That brings up the list.

    I can't get the links to work, but I hope that helps,

    Thanks! That was the solution. Oddly enough, the links are working for me, at least so far.

    Can anyone fill me in on what one can plug into date_before and date_after to be able to filter results to specific time period?

    Some of the blogs I plan to aggregate go back to 2007, which makes for a very long list. I am more interested in showing results from only the past 3 months or so. Can you help?

    Hi, I am a complete novice so have no clue on what to do. I have a site that needs to aggregate jobs from other sites. I have installed and activated this plug in, now what do I do in terms of coding. I am using the following
    [wp_rss_aggregator link_before='<li class="feed-link">' link_after='']
    Where do i put in the sites from which i need feeds from?
    Pleas help
