    I just released my first wordpress plugin, is there anything I need to do to get in your next plugin releases post or is this all done automatically?

    An easy one here.

    I would like to know what exactly does MagpieRSS Simplified do?

    I know is a RSS parser but for God Sake can someone explain me what a RSS Parser does?.

    What this plugin can do for my blog?.

    Sorry I’m very noob in those topics but I like to learn.

    And yes I searched on Google but found nothing at all. Course is also very possible that I am asking myself the wrong question but still I could learn a little more that I already know.

    Best regards

      It allows you to show RSS feeds from other sources on your blog.

      You don’t have to apologize for being new, Nehemoth. Really. I’ve been at this a long time, and while I know that RSS parser’s will allow you to pull in other web sites content into your site, this particular plugin has just about ZERO documentation. Which is surprising considering it is in the plugins repository. I came around to see if anyone had comments on it. So don’t feel alone!

  3. Nehemoth (21 comments.) says:

    I really appreciate your help James, really thank you.

    • James D Kirk (6 comments.) says:

      It’s all groovy. And just so you know, I’ve installed and activated that plugin, but not seeing any admin page for it at all. And when I look at the plugin code, there’s nothing there that would indicate it should show up. Guess we’re just supposed to magically know how to use the not so simple Magpie Simplified plugin!


      Any help here, Ajay?

      • James D Kirk (6 comments.) says:

        Nehemoth, you might want to check out this plugin. I’m looking closer at it now as well, since the “Simplified” one seems to be a dud.

        • Nehemoth (21 comments.) says:

          You see this is how plugin should be, with a lot of information or at least easy one.

          Again James really thank you.

          Lets hope next time WLTC add more info to the plugins listed here.

          • James D Kirk (1 comments.) says:

            Heh, don’t give up on WLTC just yet! They do some pretty good work around here. Occasionally, I’ve had to call them out for stuff like this, but only very occasionally (e.g., when I first started checking out their blog, they would blindly “report” on plugins whose sites were in some language that I could not read or understand; pretty much everything but English :} ) And soon after they started posting when a plugin site was not offered in English. Made them more valuable to me since they took that time to give me more meta about a potential plugin site.

            Little flu tired after a week of fighting it, but I am planning on exploring this seemingly rich FeedWordPress RSS parser on one of my sites, over the New Year Holiday (and paid time off from the day job!) Will report my findings when I am done integrating WPMU 2.7 and updating BuddyPress to the beta release on the TFC site I am building.

            Cheers! And Happy New Year!!

          • Nehemoth (21 comments.) says:

            Ohh not James, course I will not give up on WLTC, sadly for them.


            I really like this place, I came here occasionally and always found something interesting.

          • Ajay (209 comments.) says:

            Thank you Nehemoth. Glad to be of service :)

            Do comment more often with feedback. We’ve been here long, but there is always scope for improvement!

      • Ajay (209 comments.) says:

        I took a look at the plugin. I believe you can add <?php ms_magpierss('URL-HERE') ?> wherever you want the feed to fetched and displayed.

  4. Wesley (13 comments.) says:

    Woo, back online! Still pretty slow, had some server issues?

  5. Rich (5 comments.) says:

    ClickStats is looking good! Giving that a try along with a few other stat-stype plugins. You can never know too much about who’s looking at your stuff :)
