How do you add the news content of an RSS feed to the body of a Wordpress page? Thanks in advance!

There are a number of services that will place your feed on an HTML page. A lot of them use a JavaScript snippet that you can place on the page that will pull in the feed when the page loads so you're always showing the latest information.

Google's feedburner has BuzzBoost that will do this for you if you control the feed.

What I was looking to do was to create a self-hosted site using Wordpress where I could use the RSS feed to show a full article. Is that possible? Thanks!

Is the full article included in the feed?

No, I think that feed only shows links to the articles...

Once you install a plugin, or RSS feed, how do you see it on your page? Anyone?

Pulling the RSS feed onto a page would only show what is contained in the feed. If it's just a link, then all you would see on the page is the link. If there is a full feed that contains the entire article then you would see that content.

I found a RSS feed that contains full articles. I installed it and included the feed address as suggested in the instructions but I still don't see it anywhere...

I'd give the SimplePie RSS Feed Plugin for WordPress a try. You'll need basic WP template file editing and PHP skills (and general knowledge of the anatomy of an RSS feed) to make it useful.

[wordpress.org...]

I use SimplePie's core for a (non-WP) RSS fed site and it works as advertised, and from my experience the "plugin" does little more than create a hook -- you could actually just use the core and skip the plugin if you have the skills to set it up.
