We’ve been on a roll the past month releasing many new plugins available to our Pro and Campus users. If you haven’t clicked on the ‘Plugins’ link in your blog’s dashboard lately, you might want to take a quick look.
The newest addition will allow you to bring in RSS feeds from any blog or websites right into your blog!
You can put feeds in a sidebar as a widget, or into any page or post using these directions here.
Great for bringing in posts from student blogs!
There are many uses of this powerful plugin, but one we think you might like the most is the ability to bring in posts from all of your students’ blogs into one class blog.
Option 1: Create a Single Feed
Use a service such as Yahoo! Pipes to consolidate all of your students’ feeds into one. Then, use this plugin to import the new single feed into a page, post, or widget on your blog.
Option 2: Display Individual Feeds
Another option is to create a new page which imports all of your students’ feeds, using this plugin to display the latest feeds from each blog individually.
In either case, you can choose to show any combination of the post title, date, time, description, or the opening few lines of the post – very cool!
Let us know if you give this plugin a try and reply below with any other ideas on how it might be used!
