Simply Feed


This plugins simplifies embedding of RSS feeds within templates.

This is accomplished by using WordPress’s fetch_rss() function to retrieve RSS feeds and parse it.

The feed that was fetched will then be boiled down into a simple array that can easily be managed by a developer or theme designer.

The simply_feed() function, that does all this good stuff, can also be used to render the RSS directly to HTML.


  • Example on developer's website.


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

  1. Upload simply-feed.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Place<?php simply_feed( ); ?> in your templates.

You will need to pass additional arguments to simply_feed( ) to retrieve and display your feed:

  1. URL to RSS feed.
  2. (optional) Render RSS items? true or false
  3. (optional) How many items to render? 0 to infinity (default is 10)

If argument #2 is not set to true, then an array of parsed RSS items will be returned.
