Super RSS Reader is jQuery based RSS reader widget, which displays the RSS feeds in the widget in an attractive way. It uses the jQuery easy ticker plugin to add a news ticker like effect to the RSS feeds. Multiple RSS feeds can be added for a single widget and they get seperated in tabs.

The plugin is fully customizable with external styles and with some inbuilt color styles. It acts as a perfect replacement for the default RSS widget in WordPress.

FAQs

How can I customize the RSS widget externally ?

You can use the super-rss-reader-widget class in your stylesheet to control the widget styling. Other classes are,

  1. srr-tab-wrap – the tab’s class.
  2. srr-wrap – the wrapper of the widget.
  3. srr-item.odd – to control the odd feed items.
  4. srr-item.even – to control the even feed items.

Will the additional ticker effect slows the site ?

No. the additional effect needs only 3.4 Kb of additional file. I think thats not too heavy to slow down the site.

How to create a tabbed mode ?

Just enter the RSS feed URLs seperated by comma in the widget, the plugin automatically renders the tab.
