        Hi Liz,

        Do I put the link in the “widget” area, or do I put it in the module section widget area? I am using the Divi theme. See attached.

        Thanks in advance.

      Hi Roel ,

      Thanks for using my plugin.

      I have tested the feed you send it seems working for me. I am attaching a screenshot.

      Display rss feed sample

      Please check the theme header.php if it contains the following line.

      wp head function

      If not please add the line just before the tag.

      Hope it help. If you have any further queries please let me know.

      Liz

      1. my php header says this:

        <?php
        /*
        Empty on purpose.

        – Force plugins to stop stating incorrect errors –

        */

        Please advice the correct settings….

    Hello,

    I’m having issues with the Display RSS Feed plugin, which is generating parsing errors even after disabling all other plugins.

    I suspected an issue with the xml feed so I scrubbed the feed through Feedburner first, which then generated 500 server errors.

    It’s basically unusable now so I had to disable it.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

      Hi Dan ,

      For uninstalling first you need to remove the shortcode from the wordpress page.

      Then go to plugins -> installed plugins section and click ‘Deactivate’ as shown below.

  4. Thx 4 the plugin. The reason i need it is indeed to have fresh news on my page. I installed the plugin, looked at the settings, seems ok, and I also pasted this short code [pearl_rss_feed_parser_display rss_url= https://www.rijksoverheid.nl/rss%5D in the NEWS page. So far nothing is happening. So I have a few questions…. I used WPeMatico before, it does everything, pulling rss, displaying in post/news, but expensive, I rather support you. When is ur plugin pulling in posts from other sites? Can u set a time frame?
    What am I doing wrong here? 🙁

    Thx
    Roel

  5. Dear Pearl
    Can you just show me exactly what the code and tags or whatever should look like in the text editor (not visual editor_ Meaning would the shortcode be place alone or would it be surrounded by html frame (forgive me I don’t know the terms) The reason I am asking is because it keeps popping in and out sometime I have to refresh the browser to make it show up. Here’s the feed address.

      Hi Laura

      Thanks for using my plugin. No need to enter any html tags with the shortcode. Please select page or post you want to display the rss feeds and enter the shortcode as shown below.

  6. Thank you so much for fantastic plugin. Is it possible to change the “read more” links in the actual feed on the main front static page of the site? And also (not a developer) Should I put any tags around the shortcode in the text editor like bastic “head” “title” “body” etc. I am kinda confused about the text editors in wordpress weather I am supposed to set everything up inside tags or not. Silly question I am sure. I have been posting for years in the visual editor and never worried about the tags. lol. Thanks Lori E.

          Ok… In some rss feeds they are inserting thumbnails in a different format. Can you please check whether your rss feed contains line similar to this ?

          media:thumbnail width=”66″ height=”49″ url=””
          or please send me that link I can have a look.

    There is an image in the rss. Is there a special tag that I have to use for a thumbnail?

    You can see the feed at grandlagoon.org/halfhitch for an example.

    You will notice that there are two different feed plugins installed, yours and another. The other displays the image that is on the page, and yours displays nothing. How do I get the image to display in your plugin?

      yes usually you have special tags in the rss for displaying images ( media:thumbnail ). But using this plugin you can display that image but you need to make a small change.

      wp-content/plugins/rss-feed-parser-pearlbells/includes/data.php line number 70
      $html .= "

      ".trim(substr(strip_tags($rssData->description),0,get_option('pearl_rss_parser_no_of_character')))."";


      replace with
      $html .= "

      ".trim(substr($rssData->description,0, 600))."";


      600 means set the number of characters you want to display in the description.
