Launchbeat is a service that hosts community feeds — RSS feeds that can be shared between many users. Of course, they can be exclusive as well.

This plugin simplifies the process of embedding a community feed into your wordpress blog.


  • The widget configuration


  1. Upload launchbeat.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Place <?php get_launchbeat(); ?> in your templates or add the widget to your sidebar


Do I have to own the feed I use?

No, but if it has a password you won’t able to modify it without the owner’s consent.
