With PRO version we can use shortcode to display RSS feed items anywhere in the website. Currently as of version v4.0 the shortcode can be built manually by following the reference below.


[srr_feed parameter1="val" parameter2="val"]


Below shortcode will generate RSS feed list for two feed URLs (MakeUseOf and NASA) in two different tabs with the titles "MakeUseOf" and "NASA" respectively with the color style "dark", author and date displayed.

[srr_feed urls="https://feeds.feedburner.com/Makeuseof, https://www.nasa.gov/rss/dyn/breaking_news.rss" tab_titles="MakeUseOf, NASA" color_style="dark" show_author=1 show_date=1]
