This plug-in adds a very simple RSS feed from the BBC technology news section. The reason I created this was that I wanted a very simple no-nonsense RSS feed widget which I could modify easily for each project where the client required minimal control over the widget.
A few notes about the sections above:
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Drag the widget to your sidebar.
- How do I change the number of feeds that are shown?
From the plug-in editor look for the line: “$maxitems = $rss->get_item_quantity(5);” simply change the number in the brackets. Update the file.
- How do I change the RSS feed for something else?
From the plug-in editor look for the line: “$rss = fetch_feed(‘http://feeds.rssi.co.uk/news/technology/rss.xml’);” and simply change the link inside to some other feed. Update the file.
There are no reviews for this plugin.
