zRSSFeed – RSS Feeds Reader for jQuery

Filed under: jQuery — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — Veerasundaravel @ 12:55 pm

A jQuery plugin will read RSS feeds from any website url using the Google Feeds API. It produces structured HTML with in-built CSS classes for styling. Simple and easy to use.

Reference Url:

How to do:

1. Download the latest plugin  from the above mentioned URL and add it to your application directory.

2. Include the jQuery and zRSSFeed libraries.

<script src=”; type=”text/javascript”></script>
<script src=”jquery.zrssfeed.min.js” type=”text/javascript”></script>

3. Add a DIV tag where you wish the feed to display and give it an ID. There is no need to specify a class, this will be added.

<div id=”test”><div>

4. Now add the script to call the zRSSFeed plugin with the RSS url and any options. Our example gets 5 feeds from the Reuters site.

<script type=”text/javascript”>
$(document).ready(function () {
$(‘#test’).rssfeed(‘;, {
limit: 5
5. Finally now you can see the RSS feeds from the specified url.
