    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.

    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.

    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 .= "


      replace with
      $html .= "

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

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