This widget displays links to the latest posts of a custom list of third party RSS feeds.
Version 1.0.2 of Simple RSS Feeds Widget is no longer working as expected with the current version of WordPress, 3.5.1. This plugin's last update was 2010-6-19. The setting for "Maximum displayed items in total:" is set to 5, but showing 6.
An alternative plugin called Super RSS Reader is currently working for me.
