Simple and Does What It Says
By , for WP 4.2.4

It's a great plugin. It does what it says it does. I haven't had any problems with it.

Great stuff
By , for WP 4.2

Great plugin, wish I could have made it myself. Works perfectly even with the latest WP update.

Great plugin, looking forward to the next features!

The plugin does exactly what it says it does: it pulls in RSS feeds to your WP site. Easy to repost.

It is still a young plugin, and I am looking forward to the next features!

Not ready for prime time
By , for WP 4.1

This is an absolutely wonderful idea, but needs further work, starting with an upgrade to WP 4.1 support. As it is, it has the following problems:

1. The "Blog This" button doesn't work
2. Nasty OPML import with funky characters in titles

Features needed:

1. Sync between WP blogroll and Orbital so you can add or delete from either one and have the changes reflected in the other.

I see that the developer has apparently abandoned this plugin and is now working on a project called WordpRSS, based on TinyTinyRSS, but the link on GitHub is empty. I think I'll try myself, even though I'm just a "cargo-cult" programmer.
