Include RSS in WordPress page

  1. My own URL is tested and works good in RSS widget. Now the purpose is to include a list of news from a RSS in a page which has more space available. Support instructions at http://en.support.wordpress.com/pubsubhubbub/ has this description to include RSS: <atom:link rel='hub' href='http://en.blog.wordpress.com/?pushpress=hub'/> where the URL is substituted with our own URL. This does not work. Do anybody have sugestion how to write this code?

    The blog I need help with is postulater.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi. Where exactly (http://...) are you trying to insert that code?

  3. In the text editor's HTML-tab the denoted text is inserted, but the
    http://en.blog.wordpress.com/?pushpress=hub is substituted with my URL.

    If I go to the Visual-tab and then back to the HTML-tab the inserted text disappears.

  4. It looks like that code is to be used on external websites to subscribe to a WordPress.com website. It's not meant to be used on a WordPress.com site itself (read the FAQ please).

    I believe you can only use an RSS feed (either your own or from another website) in an RSS widget on a sidebar, not on a page or on a post.

  5. I can confirm that. Staff will never allow RSS feeds to autopopulate blog posts and pages here, as it's a classic spammer tool. WP.com is a home for original blogging.

  6. It's also stated as one of the types of blogs that are not allowed. see "scraper blogs and automated blogs" on this page http://en.wordpress.com/types-of-blogs/

  7. Thank you for answers.

  8. You're welcome from me.
