The Sidebar Widgets plugin comes with an RSS widget, but you get no control over how the feed shows up in your sidebar. Want more control? The KB Advanced RSS widget gives it to you. With it, you can
- Decide which RSS fields to display (as opposed to the default RSS widget, which limits you to link and title), and
- Decide how to format the fields (it doesn’t have to be a list if you don’t want it to be).
Be aware that it’s called “advanced” for a reason. You need to know some basic HTML, and possibly a little PHP, to use this fully. These examples will show how it works. There’s a demo of Example 3 in my sidebar.
How to Download It
Download it from the KB Advanced RSS page at WordPress.org . That’s also the place to look for documentation.
Please post your comments about this widget to the appropriate post in the KB Advanced RSS category. I’ve turned off commenting on this page because the page was getting too big.
