Simply RSS Fetcher


Simple plugin to fetch a desired RSS and put it wherever you want in your blog.


Widget support
No options page (yes, its a feature)
Uses WordPress resources (no extra files needed)


If you use WordPress widgets, just drag the widget into your sidebar and configure. If widgets are not your thing, use the following code to display your public Twitter messages:

<?php srssfetcher("username"); ?>

For more info (options, customization, etc.) visit the plugin homepage.


The plug in provides the following CSS classes:

* ul.srssfetcher: the main ul (if list is activated)
* li.srssfetcher-item: the ul items (if list is activated)
* p.srssfetcher-message: each one of the paragraphs (if items  > 1)
* .srssfetcher-timestamp: the timestamp span class


Ronald Heft – The plugin is highly based in his Pownce for WordPress, so the major part of the credits goes to him.

Michael Feichtinger – For the multi-widget feature.
