Display items from one or more RSS feeds

Plugin RSS

Use this wiki plugin to display items received from an external RSS feed that has been set up in the external feed feature (at tiki-admin_rssmodules.php ). See External Feeds on how to set up Tiki to receive external feeds, which will need to be done first before using this plugin. For outgoing RSS feeds, see Feeds.

Usage notes

  • feedId is the id of the feed set up at Settings > External Feeds (or tiki-admin_rssmodules.php ), max is the number of shown entries, date and author (optional) are added if set to 1 , and hidden if set to 0 , desc is a short description of the current rss item (optional).


You can also combine feeds by indicating 1:2 , or 1:2:3 to add feeds together. Note, however, that if you are combining feeds, "show publish date" must be checked in the Feeds module settings, in order to allow this plugin to sort the combined feeds.

Examples

Let's say you wish to display the list of last 3 items of a feed with the Id of 1 inside a Wiki page. Simply include this in your page, with date, but no author:

{rss id="1" max="3" date="1" author="0" desc="1"}


On this site, this would produce:

  • Subversion updates for all Tiki versions ending January 2023    ()
    Subversion (SVN) updates for all versions of Tiki will end in January, 2023. The Git and SVN combined workflow will be terminated, and Git will be the sole revision control system used by Tiki. The project's code developers are already using Git exclusively, but anyone using SVN for deployment will need to switch to Git for Tiki code updates, such as by using Tiki Manager.
  • End of service life approaching for Tiki 18 - what options do you have?    ()
    Tiki 18 LTS was first released in January of 2018 and so in January, 2023 it will reach the end of its service life. This means it will no longer be maintained by the Tiki Community, and no longer receive security fixes or feature updates. Tiki 18 users are urged to upgrade their site to the latest Tiki Long-Term Support (LTS) version. Organizations that for some reason choose to continue using Tiki 18 can seek professional enterprise support from a Tiki consultant.
  • Follow-up release: Tiki 24.2 - please update Tiki 24.1 websites    ()
    Tiki 24.2 was released on September 23, a quick but necessary update to the most advanced Tiki Long-Term Support version. Tiki 24.1 was released just a month ago, but websites using that version should be updated to version 24.2. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the timing of this update.


Now you want the same using a "Ticker like" effect:

{rss id="1"max="3" date="1" author="0" desc="1" ticker="1" desclen="50"}
