This is a VERY simple WordPress Plugin designed to do one thing; get the most recent ‘n’ entries from a specified feed and display them in a list structure on a WordPress Page. I wrote it because I needed something very straight forward that worked ‘out of the box’. It doesn’t store feed details in a database anywhere, just whacks them on the screen when needed.
Shortcode is [jp-rssonpage rss=”URL” feeds=”Number of Items”]
The list is created as a list.
- Upload the plugin files to the
/wp-content/plugins/jp-rssshortcodedirectory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
- Put the Shortcode wherever you need it on a page or in a post or in a ‘Text Widget’.
Can I change the style of the list?
The UL tag is styled by a class called jp_simple_rss_feed_ul
The LI tag is styled by a class called jp_simple_rss_feed_li
If these classes are not found in the CSS for the theme, then the default Theme CSS for these elements will be used.
Where should I add custom CSS?
If you wish to use custom CSS, then add the custom CSS to the theme / child theme style.css file or use whatever tools the theme offers for adding bespoke CSS.
