Would you like to display RSS feed on your WordPress blog or online magazine? Today I am going to show you how to make it very easily.
Users like reading the news feed because it allows finding a huge amount of fresh news-articles on a single page right when they enter the website. Your blog readers can browse your homepage posts as well as click the most exciting news titles in the sidebar or anywhere on the page if they see something which captures their attention.
There are some popular news aggregator websites that pull in the stories from different resources and make it pretty successfully. You are probably aware of such news feed websites as:
If you’ve got some budget and ready to spend some money to build a full-fledged news aggregator website like Feedly, Metacritic or the mentioned above ones, please read this guide on how to create such a site using Elementor front end page builder together with a Feedzy RSS Feeds plugin compatible with WordPress (you will need the Pro versions of both solutions).
If you are just running a blog and want to complement your existing website with more functions and elements to attract more readers, then I’m going to show you how to add a News Feed on your website in this tut.

In this post, I will also share a list of popular RSS Feeds from currently recognized news websites and more interesting resources.
So, let’s start!
For my purpose, I am going to use the Super RSS Reader plugin which allows adding widgets with any RSS feed URL anywhere in the widget areas of your WordPress blog.
Install and activate the plugin and then go to Appearance -> Widgets to find Super RSS Reader in the Available Widgets list. Depending on your active WordPress theme, you will see a selection of different widget areas where you can place the widget as per your needs. I pick the main sidebar and click the ‘Add Widget’ button.
Now I should add a title and an RSS source URL as well as manage other settings before I click the ‘Save’ button and then click ‘Done’ to get my widget ready.
Now I can go live and see my news feed pulled in.
You can place the RSS feed anywhere on your website if you’ve got the widget areas different from mine.
