Combine several RSS feeds
By , for WP 4.5.2

Im verry happy because this plugin can combine several RSS feeds into single output.

Excellent, well done, great added features
By , for WP 4.4.1

The new added features make this plugin far more useful for me. I will be replacing others that I have been using with this. The only thing missing for me to replace all other RSS plugins is pagaination, but I understand that is a difficult feature to do.

Why 5 stars?
It is easy, simple, to use. The default settings are done intelligently, simplifies the use immemnsely. It displays multiple feeds in one shortcode. No extra, unwanted, header or subheader content gets pulled in. Clean, well-spaced, legible, results.

The results look great: I have had many issues with several rss plugins for the style - font size and layouts were awkward, cluttered, or insane looking. That is very important because I have 2 MultiSites, 8 sites, plus I do not want to change RSS feed plugins when I change themes in a site.

Thank you for your hard work to provide an excellent, free, plugin.

Great plugin ...

Great plugin. I'd love to see the developer continue to work on it ...

Good but not enough
By , for WP 4.0.7

This plugin is good. But how to get feature image of post ? Thumbnail short-code is not working.

Flexible and reliable
By , for WP 4.2.4

One of my can't live without plugins. Flawlessly blends feeds and provides amazing flexibility.

Simple, easy, nearly perfect
By , for WP 4.1.4

I replaced an antique no-longer-working plugin with this one today. Very simple, easy to use, and it works. Thank you!
For a future version, it would be great if there were an easy way to get the thumbnail in a non-square div, so that (for example) YouTube's 480x360 thumbnail could be resized but not have a big gap beneath it. I'm going to try the css suggestions made by Travis on the support page, but css hacking is not my strong point. Something like "thumbheight=" and "thumbwidth=" would be a nifty addition.

I've searched for 2 days for a RSS content feeder. After trying 4 different ones, I found the PERFECT one for me! Thank you so much!

Does the job!

Thank you for the image thumbnail fetching too!

So simple, and it works...
By , for WP 3.8.1

I'd been fighting with four different RSS plugins to get one that actually pulled and rendered the HTML in my feeds correctly. I was just about to go beg for help on the forums when I decided to try just one more plugin.

This simple little plugin pulled in my HTML just fine and it gets called in as a shortcode instead of a widget...?

Awesome. (b^_^)b

works great!

Tested the plugin on a site and it works as advertised, thanks!
