FAQ

Why did you write this plugin?

The existing options did not give me the full flexibility to manipulate the output of the fetched feed so I reviewed several fo the existing plugins and wrote this one to do t better and give me that option.

How can I add my own template for outputting the rss feed?

Copy folder lh_rss_shortcode-templates from the plugin into your active child theme directory, then edit or add teamplates as required. The plugin will also look to see if the specified teamplate exists there first.
