    Hello,

    there is a plenty of WP plugins that make RSS feed display, however none of them works! None is supported in the 3.1.3 :(

    Can you suggest me how to put a customizable RSS reader whereever I want in the WP (eg. after posts), but not in the sidebars/widgets.

    I need some code to put in the php theme files.


    Free or very cheap solution... please help

    PHP:
    <?php include_once(ABSPATH.WPINC.'/feed.php');
    $rss fetch_feed('http://somewhere.com/auctionsalefeed.xml');
    $maxitems $rss->get_item_quantity(30);
    $rss_items $rss->get_items(0$maxitems);
    ?>
    <ul>
    <?php if ($maxitems == 0) echo '<li>No items.</li>';
    else
    // Loop through each feed item and display each item as a hyperlink.
    foreach ( $rss_items as $item ) : ?>
    <li>
    <a href='<?php echo $item->get_permalink(); ?>'
    title='<?php echo 'Posted '.$item->get_date('j F Y | g:i a'); ?>'>
    <?php echo $item->get_title(); ?></a>
    </li>
    <?php endforeach; ?>
    </ul>
    Works great for me.. Check out wordpress docs for more.. You can do quite a few variations including displaying as text only, etc...
