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.

AWESOME!!

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!

So simple, and it works...

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!

Easy to use

I was looking for a way to show my blog and podcast links on my WordPress site and this does the trick.

I love the ability to just show an excerpt, which I use to bring traffic to my blog.
