News feed
News feed for wordpress

 3:06 pm on Apr 4, 2012 (gmt 0)

Most wordpress themes I have used in the past come with a simple news feed for footer for the whole site or homepage, if not they use a widget to display this but I have noticed more and more that free themes don't integrate this, so I was wondering if there was a plugin that can add a news feed to a footer or is there a standard bit of html that I can add into the footer.php to make one?

Welcome to WebmasterWorld!

Do you mean a news feed from another website? If so, these are RSS feeds and there are several ways to read and republish them on your website. Just look for RSS feed plugins.

Thanks for the welcome lorax, and no I mean feed through my own posts to the home page of the site on free themes that don't have that feature.

The below example pulls the 5 latest posts from categories 6 and 12.

while (have_posts()) {
$date = get_the_date();
$permalink = get_permalink();
$title = get_the_title();
echo "<p><a class=\"your-post-class\" href=\"$permalink\" title=\"$title\">$title</a> $date By: ";
echo '</p>';

More info on query_posts in the manual.
