Support » Plugin: RSS Footer » Plugin is Now Broken

  • I know Yoast wants people to use their SEO plugin, but I’m not a fan. This plugin still works if you use version 0.9.8, so install that and don’t update it. While the current version warns of security issues, this is simply a PHP call to add the post link to the output. What security issues could there be?

  • Yea, don’t update if you still want it to work.

    Shame Joost has done this.

    I hope someone takes over this plugin and maintains it for future usage.

    Please list alternative plugins below.

    I’m just going to add this manually to my functions file. You can do the same if you like:

    add_filter( 'the_content', 'embed_rssfooter' );
    add_filter( 'the_excerpt_rss', 'embed_rssfooter' );
    function embed_rssfooter($content) {
      if ( is_feed() ) {
        $content .= '<p><a href="' . get_permalink() . '">' . get_the_title() . '</a> was originally published on <a href="' . get_bloginfo('url') . '">' . get_bloginfo( 'name' ) . '</a></p>';
      return $content;

    Otherwise there’s John Saddington’s plugin TentBlogger Add RSS Footer. It hasn’t been updated in a while which probably scares people, but in this case there’s little to update.
