WordPress Widget: Client-side RSS util, The Web Klip Released!

The original WordPress (2.7+) provides RSS clip widget from the other website. It looks good but it is server-side script that may occupy the server resource to interpret the RSS. I don’t like that approach. So I decide to create a client-side script that loads rss from other website or blog.

If you want to try, just download the widget on http://www.koumei.net/download/wp-webKlip.zip , then unzip to wp-content/plug-ins/ folder, and activate the plugin and add widget to you wordpress blog.

Before using this widget, there are some notes you should know:

  1. Defects:
    Currently only support ONE RSS excerpt.
    Only shows the first RSS item.
    jQuery should be included on your blog.
  2. Usability:
    Site that provide at least 1 item RSS feed could be refered by this widget.
  3. Extension:
    Multiple-RSS and rollover will be available  on next release.

The Demo:

webklip_1
Picture 1. The plugin will be shown after you copy the unzipped file to your plugin folder
webklip_2
Picture 2. Add the widget to the “Widgets” menu on your administration panel. You can add a RSS feed to this widget

You can  find the demo on the right side of my blog.
