Better Feed is a plugin for WordPress that allows you to enhance your feeds with several highly customizable features.

Features

Using a convenient interface with real time preview, Better Feed will allow you to add anything below each entry in your RSS feed. It also brings back the ability to split your feed with "Read More" links, just like your blog posts.

  • Add "Read more" links
    On your site, you can split post on two parts, teaser and body, using the tag <!–more–>. Why not have a "Read more" link as well in your feed, for longer posts, or when you want to tease and keep the surprise off the feed ?
    (By the way, while I'm at it : "summary" feeds truncated after 40 words just suck big time. Read more)
  • Add a copyright notice
    Concerned with content stealers reproducing your posts automatically somewhere without giving you credit ? Why not add something like "© Joe – 2005″ and a link to some neat Creative Commons License ?
  • Add the number of comments
    When you find an interesting post via your feed reader, you often have to check the website for new comments, or to subscribe to the comment feed. Why not add, at the end of every RSS item, something like "13 comments", just like in your blog frontpage ?
  • Add a "Add to del.icio.us" link
    Let your readers bookmark your entries right from within their RSS reader
  • Add a link for incoming links in Technorati or Google
    Why not add a handy link to quickly check who's linking to your post ?
  • Add anything
    There's so many stuff you could think of that I just can't list them all :)

Download

Download the plugin :
wp_ozh_betterfeed.zip
Extract and upload to your blog, preserving directory structure if any.
Note: download counter here and stats on wordpress.org may differ and reflect the number of downloads before this plugin was hosted on the plugin directory

Once you're done installing it, head to "Settings" and then "Better Feed". Everything is configured and tested from there.

Please note

A few things you might not get on first run that will save me some support:

  • If you include the number of comments in each feed item, be warned that some feed readers will display an item as "New" every time someone comments on it. It's normal, and it is how I intented it to behave so following conversation is easier than ever.
  • If you're using Feedburner, your feed won't immediately show changes after you've activated the plugin. To do so, go to your Feedburner Dashboard → Troubleshootize → Synchronize.
  • You won't notice any change if you're viewing your feed with your regular browser. Use a feed reader, or this simple service I set up especially for you: RSS 2 HTML

License

This plugin is released under the terms of the BAI & SMYF License. BAI means "Blog About It". Like the plugin? Let your readers know! SMYF stands for "Show Me Your Feed", so if you happen to use my plugin, just tell me so I can see what you've done (and maybe subscribe to your feed if it's cool !)

    curious about how to make a modification to the plugin with categories and tags

    as it currently works, the categories and tags link back to the source of the RSS…

    is it possible to have the page receiving the feed to take those categories and tags (create them if necessary) and point towards that site instead of the source site.

    thanks,

    christopher

    Your plugin is really awesome!

    However, I don't need the full plugin. Would you be able to tell me how to display Tags in the RSS Feed, by creating a function in functions.php.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Ozh, I love your plugin. But my feed doesn't seem to be updating the comments number regularly. I just did a resync so it's all up to date now, but this morning I had four comments on a post but the plugin was still reporting no comments. Any ideas for a solution to this? Would it make sense to ping feedburner after every comment?

    Joe Rybicki » This is a cache + feedburner issue, not a plugin issue. Not sure how to resolve this best. This reminds me that I have to work on an update of this plugin with various enhancements, including the ability to display comment numbers as images (a la feedburner) which would take care of this issue.

    Hi Ozh! Great plugin, love it! However, I have a tiny (self-created) problem: I have a category feed that needs to have different information in it at the bottom of the posts. Can you tell me if it's possible to do this by editing the plugin file itself, and if so, how?

    Thank you so much for all you do!
