  • Okay, I found a fix for my issue – do not use quotes and do not use commas. The whole shortcode must still be on one line, it cannot be separated into multiple lines. It’s a fix for the most part and the page for this plugin should be updated to reflect the fact that quotes and commas should not be used. A note about the necessity of it all being on a single line should probably also be made.

    Thanks, I had the same issue.

    The plugin description on is thus wrong, comma should not be used to isolate various parameters. However, quotes are ok on my side.

    I had the same issue, with the current version ( Same solution: don’t use commas. Quotes did not tickle the bug for me.

    However, I’m still having a problem with the shortcode — I can’t get before_date to work. I tried this:

    [RSSImport display=”5″ feedurl=”″ date=”1″ before_date=”<small>”]

    On the page, it displays the text “<small>” instead of leaving the tag there to have the intended effect. (I.e. the HTML source contains the escaped tag with ampersands)

    I didn’t find any notes about needing to escape tags. I tried several things to do that, but failed. Any ideas?


    I was using another plugin where I needed to use the <small> tag and it kept getting stripped out.

    I believe that WordPress’s KSES function won’t allow the <small> tag.

    I had to use a selector – in my case the a anchor and change that through CSS



    To my knowledge, the issue of having <small> replaced by <small> and thus making it “printed” instead of “interpreted” is linked to the WYSIWYG editor: as long as you edit/save in “HMTL” view, the formating is kept.

    I’m suggesting to “de-html_convert” all parameters in shortcode mode. However, there may be some side-effects… Any opinion?
