Learn more about Feedzy Full version

The plugin uses the SimplePie php CLASS natively included in WordPress. SimplePie is a RSS parser that can read the information contained in a feed, process it, and finally display it.

Using the latest version you can now group feeds into categories and reuse them across your content without worrying of their url

FEEDZY RSS Feeds therefore supports any additional library and uses only the bare minimum to ensure good performance (minimalistic CSS + cache). This will ensure compatibility with any hosting provider that supports WordPress, but if for any reason it doesn’t work for yours feel free to contact us.

You may use this plugin in your widgets and your pages and reuse the shortcode + widget several times within the same page.

By activating this plugin, your cover picture will be inserted into your RSS feeds. By doing so, you’ll make it will easier for external sites to retrieve images from your feeds.

Reviews

Great product; documentation lacks consolidation

Feedzy is an immensely powerful plug-in. I highly recommend it as a general purpose feed consolidation and syndication toolkit. It provides most of the capabilities of the developer-oriented SimplePie suite, but with a much simpler user experience. One need not be a developer to use Feedzy, yet its capabilities are fit for web development.

My one complaint is that the learning to take advantage of the plug-ins’ capabilities was difficult. I was unable to find a complete repository for all support issues: the support page was good but not very complete. The support forums are difficult to peruse. Many historical answers and support are also available on b-website.

While it’s probably not possible for a small team to provide exhaustive documentation on this very powerful plugin, it would be nice if the resources were explained and organized a little more coherently.

Thank you.
