RSS Mixer


RSS Mixer combines multiple feeds into one simple, standardized version. This simple widget displays a mix in your
blog’s sidebar with two tabs – one for the most recent posts available from the mix and one for the feeds in this mix. Use
the numerous formatting options to display only the data you’re interested in.


  • A large number of settings let you fully customize the appearance of the widget in your sidebar.
  • The default setup provides a 'Feeds' and 'Posts' tab.


  1. Upload rssmixer.php to your blog’s /wp-content/plugins directory.
  2. Click the Plugins tab.
  3. Enable the RSS Mixer plugin.
  4. Click the Design tab and then the Widgets tab.
  5. Ensure you have a dynamic sidebar enabled blog template. This is easy to add.
  6. Look for RSS Mixer Widget in the list on the left. Click Add.
  7. Click ‘Edit’ in the upper right corner of the blue box that just appeared in the right column.
  8. Copy and paste your mix’s URL into the box.
  9. Click Save Changes and check your home page.


How often is my feed updated?

RSS Mixer updates occur frequently and constantly. Your widget is cached for around five minutes to help speed up rendering.

Images and other tags are being displayed. How can I stop this?

Use the Strip HTML from description tags checkbox in the settings for your widget. This will cause the RSS Mixer server to
remove any HTML tags from the descriptions. HTML is disallowed in all other fields by default.

How do I style this widget?

Generally your theme’s default styles should apply well to this widget’s appearance. Thus, no external styles are
automatically applied. Please take a look at the generated HTML for class names you can use to define your own styles.

If you’re looking to set the highlight state of the Posts/Feeds tabs, use the current class name. Considering that your sidebar
is probably using the #sidebar identifier, the following would cause the inactive tab to be gray and the active tab black:

sidebar lh.current a { color:#000; }
