RssFeedster

Note: This plug-in extends and depends on the RainLab's Blog plug-in to generate the feed.

An on-the-fly, W3C validated, customisable RSS feed builder plug-in. The generated RSS feed was built according to the W3C standards. It includes all the required tags as well as a few optional ones, like copyright, feed category, feed language. These optional tags can help feed aggregators to better promote your feed.

The feed is built on request, so it always generates an up-to-date feed. The plug-in is very customisable by both end-user as well as extendable by other developers.

Features

  • customisable URL
  • feed built on request
  • includes optional RSS fields for better integration with feed aggregators
  • data source and renderer easily extendable by developers.

Installation/Setup

Just install the plug-in via the OctoberCMS market by looking for KoderHut.RssFeedster. You can also download the code from [email protected]rssfeedster. After installation head to Settings > KODERHUT > Koderhut RssFeedster and set the following required configs:

on the 'GENERAL' tab:

  • RSS Feed Url - this is the URL where the feed aggregators will find your feed
  • RSS Feed title - this is the title that will be displayed by the aggregators

on the 'POSTS OPTIONS' tab:

  • Max no. of Posts - set the maximum number of posts that will be retrieved for the feed
  • Post page - this will determine the URL that will be generated for linking back to your feed

    This is probably best written October plugin on the market. Splendid job.

    Excellent plugin. Simple, convenient, easy to use, easy to configure in the backend, gets the work done.

    However, you will have to remove the default blog Post created when installing Rainlab.Blog because this post is related to no user, and the plugin will fail to retrieve this Post's author email/name (see Trying to get property of non-object).

    Don't hesitate to use this plugin, it is worth!
