In this section you can find some general options that control how the feed items are displayed.

Link title

Check this box to make the feed item titles link to the original article.

Title maximum length

Set the Maximum number of characters to show for feed item titles. Leave empty for no limit.

Show authors

Check this box to show the author for each feed item, if it’s available.

For video feed items use

For feed items from YouTube, Vimeo or Dailymotion, you can choose whether you want to have the items link to the original page link, or a link to the embedded video player only.

This will not affect already imported feed items.

Pagination type

The type of pagination to use when showing feed items on multiple pages.

The first shows two links, “Older and “Newer”, which allow you to navigate through the pages.

The second shows links for all the pages, together with links for the next and previous pages.

Feed display limit

This is the maximum number of feed items to display when using the shortcode.

This enables pagination if set to a number smaller than the number of items to be displayed.

Open links behaviour

Choose how you want links to be opened. This applies to the feed item title and the source link.

Set link as nofollow

Enable this option to set all links displayed as “NoFollow”.

“NoFollow” provides a way to tell search engines not to follow certain links, such as links to feed items in this case.

In this section you’ll find options that control how the feed item’s source is displayed.

Show source

Enable this option to show the feed source name for each feed item.

Text preceding source

Here enter the text that you want to show before the source name. A space is automatically added between this text and the feed source name, so there is no need to add one yourself.

Link source

Enable this option to link the feed source name to the RSS feed’s source site.

In this section you’ll find options that control how the feed item’s date is displayed.

Show date

Enable this option to show the feed item’s date.

Text preceding date

Enter the text that you want to show before the feed item date. A space is automatically added between this text and the date, so there is no need to add one yourself.

Date format

The format to use for the feed item dates, as a PHP date format.

Below this option you will also find a link to the “Formatting Date and Time” page on the WordPress Codex.

Time ago format

Enable this option to show the elapsed time from the feed item’s date and time to the present time. Eg. 2 hours ago.

Disable styles

Check this box to disable all plugin styles used for displaying feed items.

This will allow you to provide your own custom CSS styles for displaying the feed items. You can do this using wp_enqueue_style() in your theme’s functions.php file.
