Support » Plugin: WordPress RSS Feed Retriever » Works but lacks Block implementation, alters your site RSS feed

  • The shortcode provided does an ample job of importing RSS feeds.

    There are two things that would improve this plugin:

    1) Make it clear the plugin alters your site’s RSS feed and adds thumbnails to it. Then offer an option to disable that function. Better yet, don’t mess with the site’s RSS feed at all as the purported purpose of this plugin is to display RSS feeds on the frontend of your site, not alter your site’s RSS feed. It took me awhile to track this down and now I’ve replaced the plugin entirely due to this.

    2) Offer a Block to be used with the Block Editor

    Finally Gutenberg users will get a good chunk of the functionality you need for bringing in RSS feeds through the Core RSS Feed block now provided in WP.
