How to: Display RSS feeds from anywhere

Here is a simple way to display any RSS feed in your WordPress blog.

<?php include_once(ABSPATH . WPINC . '/rss.php');
	$rss = fetch_rss('');
	$items = array_slice($rss->items, 0, 4);

		if (empty($items)) echo '<li>No items</li>';
			foreach ( $items as $item ) : ?>
            <a style="font-size: 14px;" href='<?php echo $item['link']; ?>' title='<?php echo $item['title']; ?>'><?php echo $item['title']; ?></a><br /> 
            <p style="font-size: 10px; color: #aaa;"><?php echo date('F, j Y',strtotime($item['pubdate'])); ?></p>
            <p><?php echo substr($item['summary'],0,strpos($item['summary'], "This is a post from")); ?></p>
            <?php endforeach; ?>

The first step is to include the WordPress file rss.php then will apply code after to style the feeds.

Of coarse I forgot to mention, change the RSS feed to the feed you want to pull.

    Very cool – I had no idea this functionality was built in. I see quite a few projects where people want this type of thing built, and I had assumed you’d have to build your own parser.

    Does anybody know how long Magpie has been in wordpress? This could have saved me lots of time..
