     Cortana is Microsoft’s version of Google Now and Apple’s Siri digital assistant.

Plugin Reviews: (RSS Feed)

  • Toni on "Excellent, well done, great added features"

    The new added features make this plugin far more useful for me. I will be replacing others that I have been using with this. The only thing missing for me to replace all other RSS plugins is pagaination, but I understand that is a difficult feature to do.

    Why 5 stars?
    It is easy, simple, to use. The default settings are done intelligently, simplifies the use immemnsely. It displays multiple feeds in one shortcode. No extra, unwanted, header or subheader content gets pulled in. Clean, well-spaced, legible, results.

    The results look great: I have had many issues with several rss plugins for the style - font size and layouts were awkward, cluttered, or insane looking. That is very important because I have 2 MultiSites, 8 sites, plus I do not want to change RSS feed plugins when I change themes in a site.

    Thank you for your hard work to provide an excellent, free, plugin.
    Cheers!

  • Ted Slater on "Great plugin ..."

    Great plugin. I'd love to see the developer continue to work on it ...

  • sheenal on "Good but not enough"

    This plugin is good. But how to get feature image of post ? Thumbnail short-code is not working.

  • Shelley Keith on "Flexible and reliable"

    One of my can't live without plugins. Flawlessly blends feeds and provides amazing flexibility.

  • Bill Statler on "Simple, easy, nearly perfect"

    I replaced an antique no-longer-working plugin with this one today. Very simple, easy to use, and it works. Thank you!
    For a future version, it would be great if there were an easy way to get the thumbnail in a non-square div, so that (for example) YouTube's 480x360 thumbnail could be resized but not have a big gap beneath it. I'm going to try the css suggestions made by Travis on the support page, but css hacking is not my strong point. Something like "thumbheight=" and "thumbwidth=" would be a nifty addition.

  • WP_zombie on "AWESOME!!"

    I've searched for 2 days for a RSS content feeder. After trying 4 different ones, I found the PERFECT one for me! Thank you so much!

  • lauren 1 on "Does the job!"

    Thank you for the image thumbnail fetching too!

  • Shinma on "So simple, and it works..."

    I'd been fighting with four different RSS plugins to get one that actually pulled and rendered the HTML in my feeds correctly. I was just about to go beg for help on the forums when I decided to try just one more plugin.

    This simple little plugin pulled in my HTML just fine and it gets called in as a shortcode instead of a widget...?

    Awesome. (b^_^)b

  • Gene on "works great!"

    Tested the plugin on a site and it works as advertised, thanks!

  • MMM1772 on "Easy to use"

    I was looking for a way to show my blog and podcast links on my WordPress site and this does the trick.

    I love the ability to just show an excerpt, which I use to bring traffic to my blog.
