How To Embed an RSS Feed On Your Website or Blog?

with 30 comments



Google AJAX Feed API seems to be the quickest way to embed an RSS Feed to your website or blog. Embedding the RSS Feed is quick and simple if you use that tool, and it should just take a few seconds for you to do that.

Go here, choose the layout of the embedded RSS feed widget. It can be a normal vertical layout, a vertical stack, or a horizontal bar that streams articles from your RSS Feed.

Click Preview to check out a preview of the widget, and then click Generate Code.

Copy and paste the generated code on your site and you’ll see the RSS feed embedded along with other elements on your web page.

However, you cannot specify a feed URL directly – there’s no option to do that. If you’ve got a blog, just type in its name and the Google AJAX Feed API will automatically discover the feed of that blog. If auto-discovery fails, you can manually edit the feed URL in the code.

  • THis probably uses JavaScript to serve the feed.

    There is a better way to serve a feed by utilizing a handful of PHP functions that are built into WordPress. Drats, I can’t remember where I found the tutorial on that. Curse lack of online bookmarking when I came across the post 😉

  • Nice way to aggregate content from more than one site and display it to the users 🙂

  • I was wondering how to do this recently as I was hoping to display the feeds from the How to group

  • Nice tool SK. This kind of tools makes it easier for those who are technologically challenged to show off their RSS feeds on their blog.

  • @Sumesh: Yep, but it’s from Google and reliable plus no server load on your side. 🙂
    @Keith Dsouza: Yep, kind of.. 😉
    @Joel: Oh, but I think FeedBurner provides a HTML embeddable badge as well.
    @Syahid: Yep, I completely concur with you.

  • So its from TQuizzle….great job remembering the post and my name, Travis 🙂

    I’m with Travis’ method on this one. Server load will be minimal in any case, and using WP’s native method means that it is lighter and quicker (I think Travis’ method uses PHP as opposed to JS on Google’s).

    absolutely no customization , no color customization. no way to make the vertical box static in width, just overall a really ugly embed solution.
