RSS Reader by aheadWorks FREE

The Magento RSS Feed Reader module allows you to parse any RSS feed and integrate it into your Magento store. Fully customizable, RSS Reader has its own caching system. RSS allows your store to become integrated with a Wordpress blog or any other system or service that uses RSS feeds. Use the Magento RSS extension to display the news interesting for your visitors.


Ability to work with numerous feeds
Create as many RSS Reader occurrences as you need!

Full control over every option available on a "per instance" basis
You can override the default options set in the administration panel (see list of configurable options below)

Enabled caching options
RSS Reader obtains content from a remote host and stores it in its own cache

Ability to put RSS Reader occurrences on your pages using Magento CMS pages and blocks
For store owners, developers and designers, you won't ever have to edit any files, as this feature can be handled through the administration panel. Need more flexibility? Not a problem! RSS Reader occurrences can be easily culled from Magento layout XML files

Option to customize CSS and Template files*
RSS Reader uses its own CSS files and custom template. You can create as many output patterns as needed, using them on a "per instance" basis
* requires CSS and Magento templating knowledge

Configurable options

RSS Reader options can be easily set up from the administration panel, but if you need more flexibility, you can easily override each option on a "per instance" basis:

Feed URL
Specifies the URL of the RSS feed to be read

Feed title
Allows you to set up a RSS feed title that will appear above the RSS Reader content

Articles number
Sets the number of RSS feed entries to be displayed

Show summary
Controls the RSS feed entry content display (if your RSS feed is from a Wordpress blog, it will enable/disable article content display)

Summary max words

Show date
Enables/Disables RSS feed entry date display
