  • Anyway to add more than one RSS feed to the native RSS widget?

    If not, is there a good plugin that allows for multiple feeds?

    Want them in my sidebar, NOT my posts.

    Thanks, mates,

  • Not sure if I understood you, but you can drag more RSS widgets one below the other and have as many feeds as you want on your sidebar. In other words, you want ten different feeds, then drag 10 rss widgets to the sidebar and add the feed addresses to them.

    Thanks for the speedy reply, mate.

    That’s what I’m doing currently. See fragtacular.com.

    However, I’d like to include, say, 20-30 RSS feeds, so having 30 different feeds may not be practical. I’d rather have an aggregator, and I’d like it in the sidebar.

    Any thoughts?

    Cheers,

    So you want to list 10 items from 20 – 30 website RSS feeds?

    Hey pcarrell, unfortunately there aren’t many options for you, but you may try generating the feed code here http://www.pheed.me/ and dump it on a text widget. You can see how it looks but on a page here: http://www.kellogg.northwestern.edu/Faculty/Blogroll/All-Blogs.aspx (titled as the “recent blog entries”)
    If you try that, please report back the result to us.

    this may be of help you could add this into the text widget, have a look at this article for more details.

    <?php
    include_once(ABSPATH.WPINC.'/rss.php'); // path to include script
    $feed = fetch_rss('http://domain.com/feed'); // specify feed url
    $items = array_slice($feed->items, 0, 10); // specify first and last item
    ?>
    
    <?php if (!empty($items)) : ?>
    <?php foreach ($items as $item) : ?>
    
    <h2><a href="<?php echo $item['link']; ?>"><?php echo $item['title']; ?></a></h2>
    <p><?php echo $item['description']; ?></p>
    
    <?php endforeach; ?>
    <?php endif; ?>

    Thanks guys. I’ll try that and let you know.

    Also, Parteibuch Aggregator DOES have this functionality, but the presentation is super, super sloppy.

    Thanks, Kim.

    You’re all over helping me out tonight! Ha.

    But I’m not concerned with my own RSS feed working. Rather, I’d like to get my hands on a succint RSS aggregator for my sidebar.

    🙂
