RSS plugin for WordPress

rssLinkList is definitely one of my favorite plugins. For those interested in giving it a try, version 0.8 can be downloaded from the WP plugin db. Note1: This plugin has changed it’s name from rssLinkList to Feed List. Note2: This plugin has moved and changed it’s name again from Feed List to FeedList. Please use this new version of the plugin if you are running a newer version of WordPress. (see comments for more details)

While it isn’t necessarily one of the easiest plugins to install, the time saved by not having to go check multiple sites for most recent info greatly outways the 10-15 minutes it took to get it working.

Here is a list of parameters that the rssLinkList plugin can accept [ from the author, Bill Rawlinson's readme.txt file ] :

* rss_feed_url (default: “”) – The URL of the RSS Feed
* num_items (default: 15) – The number of items to display
* show_description (default: true) – Whether or not to display the “description” field
* random (default: false) – Whether or not to randomize the items
* before (default: “<li>”) – Tag placed before the item
* after (default: “<li>”) – Tag placed after the item
* description_seperator (default: ” – “) – Between the link and the item
* encoding (default: false) – Change to true if you are reading in a ISO-8859-1 formatted file.
* sort (default: “none”) – takes one of three values; none, asc, desc

  • none – doesn’t sort and leaves your existing code as is
  • asc – sorts the results in alphabetic order (by title)
  • desc – sorts in reverse alphabetic order (by title)

Here are a few examples of it’s usage [ also from readme.txt ] :

combine 1 or more feeds –


multiple paramaters set -

<?php rssLinkList(“”,10,false,true,”<li>”,”",”-”,true); ?>

    hi guys,

    looks like both of you are probably having problems with this plugin because it has been updated to work with newer versions of WordPress. However, the name has also changed from rssLinkList to FeedList. Download and active this new version and it should work as expected.

    i will also update this post so that others won’t get confused by this.

    Looks like that link to Feed List is wrong?

    thanks n1ce.

    it looks like the plugin has moved from the author’s website to the WordPress plugin database. The name has also changed again (slightly) from “Feed List” to “FeedList”.

    you can read more about it here and here.

    or, go directly to the WP plugin db and download it here.

    i’ll also update the links throughout this post to point to the new location.

    I now offer the RSSdoodle plugin the works in much the same way as my Twitterdoodle plugin – pulling keyword based mashups of RSS feeds instead of twitter tweets.

    I’m sorry I caused you problems by changing the name from rssLinkedList -> Feed List -> FeedList.

    The first name was too restrictive considering feedList will also show Atom feeds as well as rss feeds.

    The second name was a mistake most likely (I don’t remember having the space in there).

    Finally I moved it to the plugins database to hopefully, make it easier for folks to stay up-to-date with any changes that happen.

    I try to make it as backward compatible as I can (for instance any old calls to rssLinkList(…) should still work) but I undoubtedly mess up at times. If I ever do please let me know.

    hey Bill,

    thanks for stopping by!

    the name changes weren’t that bad..
    the plugin still works great – it’s running on a couple of WP2.8.x sites i manage.

    anyway, keep up the good work !
