This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



The plugin re-activates the long forgotten blogroll or links section of WordPress in order to turn your site to an rss2email-like service.

How it works:

  • all links that has their RSS link filled in will pull the RSS feed of those sites
  • those links that does not yet have RSS will be parsed as Microformats 2
    • in case the site has an RSS alternate link, the plugin will fill this information in and use the RSS instead of the microformats parser
  • the link names will be updated based on the feed name automatically
  • all the parsed entries since the last check will be sent to the link owner’s email address as HTML mails with the following additional header:
    • X-RSS-ID with the link URL
    • X-RSS-URL with the link URL
    • X-RSS-Feed with the feed URL
    • User-Agent with blogroll2email,
    • these are in place in order for filter script to work
  • the revisit time is 30minutes ( not changeable yet )
  • the plugin uses WordPress Cron
