    great plugin! i want to use this to display an event-feed and your different templates make for a great way to display the events. a few questions though:

    1. the links do not work, can i make a change somewhere to unlink the titles, or change them? now all links go to .../style=%22color:%22
    2. images wont show, saw your answer on the importance of having them first, which is not the case, but even with very short texts and excerpt length set to maximum they wont show as you said they could?
    3. is there a way to make the feedĀ“s original paragraphing show?

    ok..Now, send me the url of the RSS feed you are using...it looks, until I see this, like there is no url being passed into the the plugin for the RSS feed..so I need to make sure the rss feed itself is ok. thanks

    ok..as I can see from that RSS feed, the image they embed is not what I'm bringing in as the leading image..they put the image it's own field. Look at that RSS feed, and then look at this (for example) and you'll see the difference:

    http://www.theverge.com/rss/index.xml

    The second thing is that the RSS feed does not have a link field, so that's why there is no URL being passed (and thus the links don't work).

    So, I don't think my plugin will work for you until the RSS feed you're using is providing the feed like most other feeds (e.g., like at feedburner, etc.).

    I'm closing this thread since the RSS feed, as indicated above, was not consistent with this plugin.

    Too bad, it would have been great if it could have been made to work..

    ok...well, get the update I'll be pushing today that will recognize the images in the RSS feed you showed. Let me know if this solves your problem as far as the images...I can't do anything about the lack of a link since that is a function of the provider of the RSS feed.
