RSS King Pro gives you the freedom to display a RSS feed or feeds onto your pages and posts with ease. The numerous options
available provides choice in how your feed displays on your pages. You can choose how many items are returned onto the page, whether the feed paginates and whether you
display those pages via AJAX giving your users a simple way to view the feed your providing.
You have control on the information from the feed that is returned on the page and how it is displayed by using variables within a HTML layout for each item.
Variables have been setup to give you choice in what details are shown for the items.
You can use RSS King Pro in two ways, either shortcode or widget. Both have the same settings available.
If you have any suggestions or would like to see a feature in the plugin, please let me know in the support forum.
Any issues you are having, I’d also love to know, so again, please let me know using the support forum.
