    Here is a RSS feed I would like to add to my site: http://www.fandango.com/rss/comingsoonmovies.rss

    How do I go about customizing the way it looks?

    Thank you

    After you've installed the plugin, it will be customizable from options menu. Btw, it must be WordPress. In your example, it's not.

    If you just wanted to display the titles of the articles from the feed, you don't need to install any plugin.

    Go to Appearance > Widgets
    and drag and drop the RSS widget in the sidebar.

    Add the feed url and it will display the feed in the sidebar.

    @thatsgame1 ... just to clarify, did you want to:

    1. Produce an RSS feed from your site that looks like that for your subscribers?

    OR

    2. Display that RSS feed (or one like it) that someone else produced and have it show up somewhere on your site?

    I think this a popular need and there are a ton of widget plugins that include more advanced features than the built-in RSS Widget. You may have already looked but I suggest to do an install plugin -> search from your dashboard for custom, advanced, image or movie rss feed and play with a few to see if any of them work. How to get them in a nice format on a page may be more complicated.

    I'm currently trying to figure out how to improve my outgoing feed, and that's how I stumbled upon your question here. Good luck!
