The 7 Best WordPress RSS Feed Plugins You Can Have in 2019

Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a major part for any blog and it needs to be used if you wish to help out yourself and your readers, both. A simple, elegant and proper functional RSS system can help your readers know and read all your latest posts (even without visiting your website) and in return you can hope for getting tons of traffic without any special tactic. I gave two reasons to you now and hope you got it straight that you need to have RSS Feed running on your blog or website.

Here I’m enlisting powerful and the best WordPress RSS feed plugins out there. I’m going to share their individual details with direct links from where you can check their demos (if available) and get them installed. Just to update your knowledge, WordPress platform itself is ready for feeds on its own. So you don’t need to code anything to include this much-needed functionality. Rather you need to offer a simple way, users can use to subscribe to feeds of your website.

#2 Super RSS Reader

Super RSS Reader plugin

It’s a widget plugin that can help you display RSS feeds in a very elegant way to the website. It’s a jQuery based plugin with impressive design. It brings in elegance because of different color styles and simplicity. If you’re looking for a replacement for default WordPress RSS widget then consider using Super RSS Reader.

It’s yet to be updated to be compatible with last two versions of WordPress platform but still its worth because of its functionality and extra light weight. You don’t need to pay anything for it and on top of all its available at official plugin store of WordPress.

#3 Blogroll Widget with RSS Feeds

Blogroll Widget RSS Feeds Plugin

It’s another widget plugin (as the name says itself) but it not only displays feeds of a single blog rather every blog which you’re running either on the same niche or different. You are allowed to add your unique titles in the sidebar, show images, blogroll links, define image size, select item orders and even adjust numbers of posts to be displayed.

On top of all the features being offered, the one I personally liked is that links can be added with ‘nofollow’ attribute pretty easily. Setting it up is done in no time and users are offered more control over the feeds being displayed in the sidebar or may be in the footer.

#4 RSS Image Feed

RSS Image Feed Plugin

If you share a lot of images on your blog and agree to the fact that images can grab user’s attention easily then start using this RSS Image Feed plugin. It is available for free and it simply creates a feed via images. It provides a simple control panel and the whole package is light weight. It is even compatible with the latest version of WordPress out there.

It can help you adding a clickable image with excerpts. It picks up the first image from any post you wish to show the feed of rather than displaying every image which can affect the page load time, indeed. It’s developed by a well-known developer so no need to think too much of its credibility.

#5 Category Specific RSS feed Subscription

Category Specific RSS feed Subscription

Again this plugin works as per its name. If you’re running a blog sharing information posts on different topics then this plugin can do wonders. It can help your readers to select a specific category and then they will be receiving feeds for that only rather than from the whole website.

This is how you can help you readers by providing this utility option. The plugin is available for free and already made compatible with latest version of WordPress script. The reason it can do wonders is that maximum times your readers don’t want to read feeds from each and every category.

This is simply because they don’t care for each and every topic you share. So using this plugin you’re offering them an option to filter out stories they received and thus help in maintaining and increasing user experience, which can indeed do wonder.

#6 RSS Importer

RSS Importer Plugin

It’s a very simple plugin that functions mainly to import posts from the feed and displays them on the WordPress website you’re running. It doesn’t provide any other tool or functionality. Additionally its lightweight and compatible with latest version of the script. Also, you don’t need to worry about the price tag as it’s free.

#7 RSS Includes Pages

RSS Includes Pages Plugin

You must be aware of the fact that WordPress platform includes feeds by default. But there is one limitation over here. It supports only the Posts type excluding Pages you share on your WordPress driven blog. If you’re running a website where Pages covers vital information then you need to make them part of feeds, right?

Here comes a lifesaving plugin named RSS Includes Pages. Use it and it can disable that default setting resulting pages to be included within the feeds.

#8 WP RSS Aggregator

WP RSS Aggregator Plugin

Another free plugin this time that can improve the RSS functionality by offering certain specific functionalities. It can allow users to select a date, time, post type, whether to include or exclude excerpts and number of posts to be part of feed being received at your end. All these things can be done easily via URL of any website or its feed. Isn’t it cool?

Conclusion

I hope I didn’t bore you much as most of the plugins I recommended above were offering similar functionality. But I needed to include them because of the standard of quality they are offering. The final work left for you is to decide which one you wish to go with finally and get it installed and setup. In case you need any assistance, start a fresh thread in the discussion section below. Cheers.

    Suggestion: rather than just write “round up” lists of plugins by topic, why not take 5 minutes and install them to see if they even work “in 2015” .. as at least one of your “2015” options doesn’t work in WP 4x “in 2015” ….

      Hi Christopher,

      Thank you very much for your feedback and stopping by. I do ask all our writers here to take time to research and review all recommendations. I also take responsibility for not reviewing every single recommendation I usually do random spot checks.

      I have reviewed all plugins mentioned here and can honestly recommend them, I had to remove one as it was not up to the standards I expect.

      We are interviewing a few editors to help with the workload to ensure quality is the highest possible. Honestly, thank you for bringing it to my attention.

            Well, to clarify we will be testing super rss reader. In our case, we have a 15 year old news network and needed simple way to say, on our Florida site, have three columns on bottom of home page with “news from our partners” … like our California, Massachusetts and New York news sites; and then do the same on others. So we needed something simple, but much better than the default widget that comes with WP. On one other site where I needed something even simpler than that, for a reports dashboard, I am using “WP-RSSImport” which works well.

    Hi Pawan- what would you recommend? In setting up multiple feeds from multiple locations to display on my site. I want to bring in featured images, and any other images an article may have, to display on automatically generated posts that will include the full content and contain a no follow attribution link to the original source. I also want to filter the content that comes in fro the different sources to display as different category post types on the site. For example, if the news content coming in discusses the topic of Chicago, I want to have it auto create the post as the category Type of state of Illinois news.

    What would you recommend?? Thanks for your help.

    Hello guys,

    First of all this isn’t spamming or robot writing. I just think this would fit well with the topic

    Well we just released our plugin called Adminyo – Intelligent WP Admin

    and it features quite a lot of bold and unique tools to speed and ease time while working inside the Admin Area.

    His main powers are:

    Quick Search – It will display a organized list of your results while your are typing. You also get 3 buttons near every result so you can edit,view or create a shortcut on your dashboard of the desired result.

    Pin to Dashboard – Create shortcuts of your most viewed or edited posts so you can instantly start working after you login. It supports all Custom Post Types.

    Floating Action Button – It will add a nice fixed action button on the edit pages so you can update,view,pin or scroll on top right at your finger tip.

    Misc. Tools – Adds small functions such as CTRL+S to save your progress in any of the post types, CTRL+D that will get you to the dashboard from anywhere or just customize your Admin menu with a auto-collapse function or completly hiding it.

    For more informations , demo or simply check some GIF’s please visit us at http://www.bit.do/adminyo

    We are really looking forward on developing this plugin and make it based on the community’s wishes and frustrations so any helpfull advice or idea may come to life.

    Thanks for your time and have a great day reader!

    Wait, this article says that it was updated just 4 months ago, yet most of the ones listed are outdated. The first one, Super RSS Reader, hasn’t been updated in over 2 years! I have tried to install WP RSS Aggregator, but it wrecked my website both times and I’ve been using WordPress for over 10 years and far from a newbie. While going through the support forums for Super RSS Reader (nothing had been resolved in over a year) I did find “GE RSS Reader Widgets.” I will give that a try.
