New RSS Aggregator Plugin for WordPress

Importing feeds into your website can be very useful in providing daily fresh content to your users. You can thus display an RSS news digest from all the main blogs/sites in your sector all on one page in your website. I have just released a new plugin called WP RSS Aggregator, with which you can very easily display an aggregator on a page or post in your website.

We are using this plugin here on WPMayor, head over to the WordPress World News section to see it in action.

WP RSS Aggregator works in a similar fashion to RSS readers like for example Netvibes.

You can add any number of feeds through an administration panel, the plugin will then pull all the feeds from these sites, merge them and sort them by date.

The output will be organised under the following headings

  • Today
  • Yesterday
  • 2 Days ago
  • More than 2 days ago

The plugin uses SimplePie for the feed operations. The actual news feeds are not stored in your databases but only cached for faster response times.
You can call the function from within the theme or even use a shortcode with parameters.

Download WP RSS Aggregator

Do you have any feedback or suggestions for this plugin? I’d love to know of any improvements that can be done to make it more useful for you.

    Great Plugin ! I was searching for a plugin to display a RSS Diggest on my website.

    I may suggest two functionnalities :

    – first and foremost, the ability to display it in a Widget
    – second, the possibility to edit the title of each posts shown in the RSS feed

    Is it possible to show more of the article content? Perhaps the first 100 words or more, so the blog doesn’t look like a bunch of links. It could give the reader reason to linger before leaving. This looks really good otherwise. Thanks.

    Hi, Me again!

    I cannot fix this issue – when I click on a link that is displayed the screen darkens, a whitebox appears in the middle and an orange circle displays, as though it is waiting for something. But the link never gets anywhere.

    There is a page there as if I click to see it in another window it appears.

    Is there a way round this? Is there a way to just click and go to the page in another window instead of the whitebox/darkened screen system?

    Thanks!

    Hi Jean,

    Just wanted to say thanks for a great plugin, it does exactly what I need.

    Do you know how often it pulls from feeds?

    I think it would be better if we could define the frequency of pulling the content? Maybe have an option such as every hour, every 6 hours… Do you think this is possible with manual way? Interested to use this plugin, however it would be better if it doesn’t pull every 1 hour.

    Regards,
    Dennis.

    Hello Jean,

    Just a quick question.

    Here’s my case: I suspect the font size of those links should be based on my wordpress theme CSS. I increase the font size of the Post Titles but the “source” font size increase as well. Is there anyway to reduce the font size of the “sources”?

    Thanks and Regards,
    Dennis.

    Will this work as an aggregator to create a new feed from 2 feeds? Can the created feed be used as a feed for use with hootsuite or similar sites that post to other sites based on a feed?
