SimplePie feed anywhere on your WordPress blog

von Joern am 28. Feb. 2009 | Keine Kommentare

to display any feed on whatever place in a wordpress site you can use SimplePie together with the WordPress plugin SimplePie Core
First step: get the plugin and the latest simplepie.inc, install and enable as explained on that sites. From there, you can go to the new Options – SimplePie for WP panel and configure your default settings.
Now the class simplepie should be available for use on any page, post, template, sidebar or footer of your blog.
Now, how to get it to display a feed?
I use on go41 in the footer something like this:

Code:

<?php   if (class_exists('SimplePie')) { ?>
<h3>Imported Feed Yahoo News Topstories</h3>
<?php $url = "http://rss.news.yahoo.com/rss/topstories";
$feed = new SimplePie($url); // setup the feed
$feed->set_cache_duration(86400); // 24hrs x 3600sec - 1day
$feed->set_timeout(5);
$success = $feed->init();
$feed->handle_content_type(); ?>
<?php if ($success): ?>
<?php foreach ($feed->get_items(0, 6) as $item):
if ($item) { ?>
<p><?php echo $item->get_title(); ?></p>
<p><?php echo substr(strip_tags($item->get_description()), 0 , 90); ?></p>
<?php } // end item ?>
<?php endforeach; ?><?php endif; //success ?><?php } // end Simplepie ?>

This code checks first if simplepie is enabled, then sets the feed url, the cache time and displays the feed if there is.

Feed entries are limited to 6 items and the content text is truncated after 90 characters.

Try it with any feed you can put as replacement for the yahoo feed, ask here if you get problems
