RSS llama


Display summaries of all your links rss feeds in an organized page. Stay on top of the news and information you need without repeatedly checking multiple web sites for updates. RSS llama simplifies the way you stay informed and helps you take control.

  • WordPress allows you to store a set of external links, also known as your blogroll. These links can be put into categories, imported, exported, added, deleted, and edited. The link categories can also be added, deleted, and edited. This article describes how: Links Manager instructions.
  • As of Version 3.5, the WordPress Links Manager and blogroll are by default hidden for new installs and any existing WordPress installs that do not have any links. RSS Llama retrieves RSS feeds from the WordPress Links Manager. If you do not have a links manager you can download and install the Links Manager plugin here: links Manager plugin.

I can’t believe no one has reviewed this plugin yet. This is my favorite RSS reader plugin for WordPress. The design is simple (no clutter or unessasary settings). It works great too right out of the box. It also has some nice JavaScript effects.
