Back to top

Rss Feed Reader extension for Magento 2 provides the functionality to display rss feed articles from any existing blog/website onto any static/dynamic page of your Magento 2 store. The extension helps in promoting products and services from your other multiple channels onto your Magento store.

Thanks to many configurable settings that are easy to configure you can control the display of the feed articles as per your Magento store's design aesthetics. Please note the feed url should be of valid XML format.

This extension can be used in case you want to show articles from any existing blog/website on your Magento store. For example, let's say you have an existing blog based on WordPress and a store based on Magento, This extension can be used to show short details about the recent 5 blog articles on the web-store as seen in the image.

There are various options provided in the admin section: 

Module Enable: If set to 'No' RSS feed will not be seen. Default value is set to 'No' when installed

Feed Appearance

There are multiple ways the store owner/admin can pass the feed url using widgets, blocks, pages and even from view files, kindly check the manual for details.

Examples

  • As shown in the image I have set the url of Google news rss feed in a block from the admin and you can see the news articles in the left column of the site, in other image I have shown a way to set the url from the page
  • Also in one of the image you can see the articles from my Wordpress blog in the left column of the site

Appearance of the feed on the site doesn't affect appearance of any existing sections as it is not using any custom CSS or JavaScript, you as an admin can add custom CSS classes to the feed.
