MOBy RSS Widget



This plugin was born out of an explicable problem with the standard
Wordpress RSS widget on my server. Whether a curl problem within
fetch_feed() or something else, this plugin now uses DOM to load
the feeds rather than curl. If you’re getting the “An error has
occurred; the feed is probably down. Try again later.” message (and
you are sure that your feed is valid (validate with try this plugin.


  1. Upload the mob-rss-widget-folder to the /wp-content/plugins/
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

How to Use
