Multi Feed Reader

Reads multiple feeds. Output can be customized via templates. Is displayed via Shortcodes.

This plugin was created with the iTunes Podcast Feed in mind. However, you can feed it any RSS feed you like. If you would like to display some tags which are not supported right now, please feel free to contact me.

Quick Start

Create a template "myfeeds" in Settings > Multi Feed Reader. Add your Feeds. Create a page and paste in one of these shortocdes:

[multi-feed-reader template="myfeeds"]
[multi-feed-reader template="myfeeds" limit="10"]
[multi-feed-reader template="myfeeds" cachetime="300"]

Enjoy :)


  • template: (required) name of the template
  • limit: (optional) maximum number of items per feed. default: 15
  • cachetime: (optional) time in seconds to cache results. default: 300
  • nocache: (optional) set to "1" to deactivate cache. not recommended, will make your multifeed-page very slow. default: 0

Force Cache Refresh

To clear the cache, call the site with parameter ?nocache=1. So if your site is example.com/archives, open example.com/archives?nocache=1 in your browser. You should then see the refreshed page immediately.
