Show RSS Feed within a WordPress Post – In Post RSS Feed plugin



This idea, showing a relevant RSS Feed at the end of the post, came to my mind day before yesterday. That time, I had to install the wp-exec plugin that can handle PHP codes inside the post. Using that, I have included an RSS Feed at the end of the post to show live contents from external site.

However, that is not suitable for all. All wordpress users don’t know PHP. Moreover, it is not simply process. if you make a syntax error, you take a lots of trouble. So, I thought, I will make it simple. And yes, the initial version is done. I have plan to release an low-cost premium version with many customizable features that I have in my mind.

How it works?

After you install the plugin, you configure it from WP-Admin -> Settings -> In Post RSS link and set the number of items to show and show/hide Feed Title that is given by you as you see in the screenshot below:

Setting Page

In Post Plugin Setting Page

When you edit a post, you will get a meta box like the following where you can mention the Feed Title and Feed URL.

The configuration is done. Now it’s time to party. Hurray! Visit the post where you have set the feed and you will see contents from the feed as follows.

Demo

This feed will be updated when new contents are available to the feed. Are you frightened that it may hook your server down? Nope, this plugin uses wordpress built in feed handler that caches the feed to save your ass!


Premium Version

The premium version will come with lots of new features that I will describe later.

    I’m trying to create a page w/ multiple RSS feeds in it, however I can’t even get one feed to work. Can you help me find the step by step how to on your site so that I can figure out what step I’m missing in this process?

    Thank you,

    Catrina

  • The HungryCoder

    Hi Catrina,
    This plugin does not allow multiple RSS Feeds. I don’t know what steps you have followed! So, I can’t know what step you have missed. Please explain how you have tried to use this plugin

  • Nick

    Hiya, How can I get each feed item to open in a new window? Also (although this may be a theme issue) on the front blog/news page it displays the items as a loooong sentence, do you know how I can get them to be separated?

    Cheers, Nick

    When I check the “hide title” box – it does no work, the feed title still appears

  • The HungryCoder

    Is your page cached? If so, you will have to wait until page cache is reloaded!

    and anyone second to Roland about this problem? however, I just tested on this post rss feed and I see feed title is not showing which is correct :)!

  • Alex Acex

    Hi. Is it possible to use 2 different rss in one post? (m.b. through an installation 2 such plugins or is there other way?)

  • The HungryCoder

    Nope, sorry! It is not possible using this plugin!

    You can combine the two rss somehow and show as one!

    This is exactly what I was looking to find! Thanks!

  • Jericho

    Hello Hungrycoder,

    I tried the chnage the default liston fro 5 to 15 feeds but it will not accept the change and defaults to 5. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance for your help

    hi
    thanks for share
    i use this plugin in wp-persian, It works good
    how can i show rss feed in a page?
    i need “in page rss feed” plugin :d
    thanks again

  • The HungryCoder

    So far I remember, it works with Posts only. If you know, you can edit it!

  • http://www.iutab.com mohsen

    thanks HungryCoder
    i found another plugin for pages
    wordpress.org/extend/plugins/rss-in-page/

  • The HungryCoder

    Cool. Thanks for letting me know :)

  • Jill

    Cool Love your plugin I searched everywhere. found some but to much code and I could not get them to work.

    I really would like it to be in post or pages and as line feed like you have. With several rss feeds all in one post or page. I guess these feeds will not update?
    I will be watching your plugin for updates!!!
    Thanks Saved lots of cut and paste!

  • Bas

    Is it possible to show picture in the post. These are included in the RSS feed but currently not appearing in the post.

    Thanks!

  • The HungryCoder

    Hi,
    I actually did not thing about it! May be it can be good upgrade of this plugin :). However, if the image is included in the tag, it will be displayed, but separate image will not be displayed currently.

    Thanks

  • Bas

    Ok, thank you for your reply. Indeed it would be a good upgrade, imagine you can see items eg. eBay or other auction/ e-commerce sites like cars.com listings incl photo.

    Thanks

    What about a page as opposed to a post? Can I use this plugin on a WordPress page and not single post.

    Let me know.

  • http://neuconcepts.net Cathy Hofknecht

    I know this plug in currently only supports one feed. Any plans to support multiple feeds?

  • The HungryCoder

    I have plan but time is not allowing me :(.

  • http://onlinebizexpert.com VirtualGina

    anyway to make posts listed in feed open in a new window? – asked above but I did not see a response

  • The HungryCoder

    i am sorry but believe me, i am so busy even to write a blog. many blogs pending. anyone who can contribute is welcome. i can add him/her to write to wp svn.

    thanks

    Cant seem to get it working properly. I’ve got it activated, then the next step is configuration but when I click settings I get things like: reading, writing, ect.. not the In Post RSS – config.
    When I make a new post, I can add a feed URL to it, and it’s possible to see on the site, but the feed doesn’t automatically update.

  • Dyzc

    Again. since you didnt answer it: Is it possible to make posts listed in feed open in a new window? Now people leave my webpage totally…

    Thnx!

  • http://www.postapoc.net Bill

    Is there a way to prevent the RSS feed from being pulled into the excerpt and only in the post content itself?

  • tn jed

    Ive installed the plugin, seems to work except the setting option does not show up under the settings tab. Any help is greatly appreciated.

  • tn jed

    I got it fixed thanks to #wordpress.
    Line 36 should be edit_posts instead of edit_post.

    It works fine now except I can oly get titles in the feed, I cant get content like in the screenshot of the live facebook updates

  • Joel

    @Cathy,
    Have you looked at Yahoo Pipes?
    You can aggregate multi feeds there and generate 1 feed to appear on your post.

  • Joel

    @tn jed,

    Good tip – now the config screen shows up under SETTINGS – but still nothing show up on the page.

    I see it’s tested up to WP 3.05 – is there anything in 3.3.1 that would prevent this potentially useful plugin from working properly?

    TIA

  • Jimbo

    To open feed items in new window – edit plugin .php file, on line 136 just add target=”_blank”.

  • http://elkgrovebusiness.net Jeff Bayer

    Seems to work as advertised in WP 3.3.2
