With the inlinefeed plugin you can display and embed RSS/ATOM feeds in your WordPress posts and pages.

With the inlinefeed plugin you can display and embed RSS/ATOM feeds in your WordPress posts and pages using the following shortcode:

[inlinefeed rss_feed_url="http://feed.xml"]

NOTE: From version 2.0 you can only use the shortcode [inlinefeed], the old style <!--rss:[URL]--> doesn't work anymore! If you upgrade from a 1.xx version, then you must change from <!--rss:[URL]--> to [inlinefeed rss_feed_url="[URL]"] style.


  • Simple:

Just put a [inlinefeed rss_feed_url="http://yourfeed.rdf"] in your post, and the feed will show up.

Left as rss for backwards compatibility but will work with ATOM feeds as well.


For some customisation there are some options you can use.

  • display (1-100): Show the number of lines from the feed.
  • rss_feed_url (url): The RSS/ATOM URL.
  • displaydescriptions (true/false): Show the discription / content of the feed, default true.
  • truncatetitle (false/1-100): Truncate long title headers after x caracters. Or false if no truncate (default).
  • newwindow (true/false): Open links in new window?
  • displayfeedname (true/false): Display the name of the feed, default true.


[inlinefeed rss_feed_url="http://www.osnews.com/files/recent.rdf" displaydescriptions=true truncatetitle=false newwindow=true display=15]

[inlinefeed rss_feed_url="http://kerneltrap.org/rss.xml" displaydescriptions=true truncatetitle=false newwindow=false]

[inlinefeed rss_feed_url="http://slashdot.org/index.rss" displaydescriptions=true truncatetitle=20]

[inlinefeed rss_feed_url="http://www.securityfocus.com/rss/news.xml" displayfeedname=false displaydescriptions=true truncatetitle=false]

[inlinefeed rss_feed_url="http://www.ipodhacks.com/ipodhacks.xml" displaydescriptions=true truncatetitle=false]

[inlinefeed rss_feed_url="http://www.viruslist.com/en/rss/virusalerts" displaydescriptions=false truncatetitle=false display=5]

[inlinefeed rss_feed_url="http://tweakers.net/feeds/mixed.xml"]

Finally note the whole thing must be on ONE line. No line breaks or else it won't work.

If you want to use a gziped rssfeed try you must add gzip support to wordpress, take a look here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/class-snoopyphp-gzip-support/
