Could somebody really help me out?

  • I have been posting after posting for the last 3-4 days, no response. I guess it maybe so mundane, that it gets pushed to 2 nd page very soon.

    PLEASE help me out.

    Here is my problem:
    I wish to put several RSS feeds onto one of the page in WP201. For example, feeds from CNN, USAtoday etc.
    How can I do this?

    Try zFeeder.

    I have not yet used it but plan to try.


    I will be really happy to try it out. Wondering, can i put this code (which calls feed) on a new page through admin panel?
    <? include (‘newsfeeds/zfeeder.php’); ?>

    THe reason, I asking this is for some reason, when I create a new page and put some codes, it disappears.

    I have a page on my blog called “RSS Feeds”. Please look at it. If that is what you want to do, I’ll send you the code I have in that page.

    That is what I was looking for. PLEASE send it to my email ID given for this forum.
    I can’t wait to try it out for me.
    Hope it is configurable.

    Oops by the way, why isn’t your rss feed page showing within your WP layout? I mean the sidebar etc is missing. I wish to show mine within the layouts. Hope that is possible too.

    By the way, you got a classic blog site. Very nice.

    drb05 – you don’t have your email address in your member profile. And the script is configurable. You would just replace my feeds with the ones you want.

    very very sorry. Email is there, but not sure why it isn’t showing.
    Please email me at bizzebee_xp(at)yahoo(dot)com

    Thanks a bunch.

    I’ve been looking for something like that also. Would it be possible to use that on a front page? If you would be so kind to share that script with me I would appreciate it.


    Thank you!

    Since more than one person was interested, I thought I should post the code here. It’s not a lot of code. If my memory serves me correctly, someone on the forum posted this or referenced it when I was looking about a year ago.

    I just made a Page and pasted the code in. You need a plugin to execute php code in a Post or Page. These are the feeds I use. You would just edit and put your feeds in the $streams array.

    require_once (ABSPATH . WPINC . '/rss-functions.php');
    //feeds go here
    $streams[] = "http://www.globalissues.org/WhatsNew/WhatsNew.xml";
    $streams[] = "http://www.epha.org/backend.php3?id_rubrique=16";
    $streams[] = "http://rss.news.yahoo.com/rss/topstories";
    $streams[] = "http://feeds.feedburner.com/wxpn";
    $streams[] = "http://dictionary.reference.com/wordoftheday/wotd.rss";
    $streams[] = "http://www.theregister.co.uk/odds/excerpts.rss";
    $streams[] = "http://www.theregister.co.uk/internet/excerpts.rss";
    $streams[] = "http://www.theregister.co.uk/personal/excerpts.rss";
    $streams[] = "http://www.theregister.co.uk/software/excerpts.rss";
    $streams[] = "";

    $numElements = count($streams);
    for($counter=0;$counter<$numElements;$counter++) {
    $rss = @fetch_rss($streams[$counter]);
    if ( isset($rss->items) && 0 != count($rss->items) ) {
    <h3><a href='<?php echo wp_filter_kses($rss->channel['link']); ?>'><?php echo wp_specialchars($rss->channel['title']); ?></a></h3>
    $rss->items = array_slice($rss->items, 0, 3);
    foreach ($rss->items as $item ) {
    <strong><a href='<?php echo wp_filter_kses($item['link']); ?>'><?php echo wp_specialchars($item['title']); ?></a> <?php echo human_time_diff( strtotime($item['pubdate'], time() ) ); ?> <?php _e('ago'); ?></strong><br /><?php echo $item['description']; ?><br />

    Hi Jwurster,
    Thanks for the code.

    I have couple of issues. Please help me out.
    1. Is there a way to just show the title alone of feeds?

    2. I got it to work. But when I tried to edit the page I create using admin panel, i could not see <?php> codes at top and bottom and saw only rest of the code. Like below-
    require_once (ABSPATH . WPINC . ‘/rss-functions.php’);
    //feeds go here
    When I clicked HTML button on the edit page, it was more weird. It showed like this-
    <!--p<br-->require_once (ABSPATH . WPINC . '/rss-functions.php');
    //feeds go here

    <p />
    NOTE:- …….(dots) are rest of the codes in the middle. I did not paste the entire one, But i was able see the codes except for above modification at top and bottom.

    When I added a new URL and saved it, my page went blank. No feeds came up.

    3. Are you referring to this plugin to execute php commands within a page?
    I installed and activated it. That’s how my RSS feed was working in the first place.

    The author says it is dangerous to allow execution of such php codes. I am really ignorant on those issues.

    Please let me know.



    At last I got it to work. The issue was ‘rich text editor’.
    It was messing up all my php codes.

    everything works fine now.

    However, I am not sure about exec-php plugin that I am using to have this feature.

    With ExecPHP you can use this [?php ?] instead of the normal php tags. Why are you not sure about the plug-in?
