What Others Are Saying

Description

This plugin allows you to display the most recent post of your favourite blogs somewhere on your site.

It utilises the RSS link field from the blogroll for each of your links. If the RSS link exists it attempts to get the last post from it.

It then displays the most recent X number of posts depending on your settings. Each blog can have one post in the list.

Why have a boring list of links when you can display each person’s last post on that list?

FAQ

Where are the RSS links added?

Under your Blogroll, when you add a new link (or edit an existing one), look lower down the page under the advanced section. Here you can add RSS feed links.

Not all items are appearing correctly

Unfortunately not every site or software follows a standard RSS format, so I’m slowly adding other ‘methods’ in. Please let me know which feed URL isn’t work and I’ll get support for that added.

Apostrophes in the post title display funny

I know, I’m working on that.
