Add Wordpress RSS Feed to a website

Hi Experts,

This should be pretty easy.  I just started a Wordpress blog.  I need to know what Free RSS generator or or whatever will work to show the latest posts on an external website.

Basically I want to paste some code into a cell on a webpage and have it then show the latest blog info within that cell.

Thanks,
DJM

To view your feed, just type your site/feed.
Example:
http://yourwebsite.com/feed

This will bring up a page that shows you how it will look. It is either the ATOM, or RSS Feed. Depending on the theme it may have both ATOM and RSS Feeds. You can find out by going to Appearance>Editor>Header.php. Look at the <link rel=".... tags in the top of the header.php before the closing </body> tag. You should see the rss, and atom links if they are available.

So i found it by adding

/wp-rss.php

after the website.  So from there I see a summery of the posts.

feed://www.stpeterarmenianchurch.com/wordpress_derstep/wp-rss.php

Now I just want to get a smaller version I can put within a cell on a website.

Here are a few links on how to customize the RSS output. I would create a new category for the RSS content. I would then make the posts I wanted to show a "child category" of the new one that iwll hold the RSS content.

http://vandelaydesign.com/blog/wordpress/category-hacks/ (shows you how to exclude certain categories).

This page contains links to plug-ins if you want to go that route. It also shows how to do it manually:

Sorry Jeremyjared.  I'm feeling pretty stupid for not being able to figure it out.

I just created a feedburner account to try and get the RSS feed that way.  I've seen it done in the past where you just copy a line or two of code, paste it into the cell on the website that you want it displayed and then just the titles of the latest blogs are shown/automatically updated.

I'm failing at this.

OK, to use your Feedburner feed, use your .htaccess file to re-direct the current feed to it:
# BEGIN WordPress
<ifmodule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</ifmodule>
 
# END WordPress
 
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^[A-Z]{3,9}\ /(feed|wp-atom|wp-feed|wp-rss|wp-rdf|wp-commentsrss)(.+)\ HTTP/ [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^feed [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !^(FeedBurner|FeedValidator) [NC]
RewriteRule .* http://feeds.askapache.com/apache/htaccess? [R=307,L]
RewriteRule ^comments/?.*$ http://feeds.feedburner.com/apache/htaccess/comments [L,R=302]

Open in new window


If all else fails, use this plug-in to control the FeedBurner feed:

If I'm correct, I think you want to import  RSS feed from an external source and display in your blog. Using a small PHP snippet you can do that. You might find these articles very useful.

Hope one of these will help you out for sure.

If by "smaller version" you mean that you want to limit the number of items in your rss feed, you can adjust that in the admin

Settings > Reading > Syndication feeds show the most recent ____ items.
