You already listed them here.


Same “problem” with me, I’m from Brazil too.
Gonna talk with the other admins of the forum we run to see if anyone think about any other feature to be add.

Send your contribution to me directly and I’ll add it in. Just make sure you tag the transaction as for the News Plugin.

We’re getting close to the target already. If you have features you want for this plugin, now’s your chance.



Great and very promising plugin, made also one quick mockup for layout ideas. Multiple tags option would be also nice and useful, what could be considered:


That looks a lot like Topic List Previews ‘tiles’ view :thinking:


You’re already can have something similar as merefield said.


One thing that’s not a feature, but something more pleasing to the eyes… there’s a way to make the link be highlighted when we hover the cursor, like the others?



For round 2 of work on this plugin we so far have

Feature List

  1. New feed sources:
    • RSS
    • More than one category
  2. Display options:
    • A ‘featured’ news item
  3. Format and layout improvements:
    • Formatting support
    • Character limit
  4. New functionality
    • Like button
    • Total replies
    • Category of the post
  5. Other improvements
    • Filter pinned topics
    • Highlight news link on hover

An additional item requested by @Jeremie_Leroy is implementing the Topic List Previews Tiles layout in the news feed. @Jeremie_Leroy I’ll see how it goes with the other items on the list, and if there is time to add this as an additional feature in this round of work I’ll do so.


So far:

Sponsors, if there’s anything on the above feature list you don’t want to use on your site, let me know now and I’ll make a site setting to turn it off when building the feature.

If you’d like to help sponsor this plugin and / or have a specific feature request, you have until Friday to get on board this round of work.

*edit this round is now closed.

Angus, the topic’s content is not showing here, only the title.

Oldest topics are showing also above newest topics in the timeline.

@angus, is this correct? Check line #11:

The blank line 10 is correct?


In YAML, parent > child relation is based on indentation only.

So here, errors is a child of site_settings.



I will translate this to Spanish … PR coming :rocket:


Just fixed an ordering bug with this plugin:


Hi @Angus or anyone who can help :grinning:

Can I just check the use case for this plugin? Is the primary use case to be able to provide an RSS feed for others to subscribe to or be able to consume one?

For example I want to subscribe to a news RSS feed to create some regular topics on my forum. Should this work only I cant seem to get the plugin to create anything :thinking: Here are the settings for the plugin

Any help would be much appreciated.

Can I use this plugin to create blog with in the forum? If so, how seo gonna work with these pages?
