Client Dash [cd_feed] Shortcode

The ClientDash shortcode ‘cd_feed’ fetches RSS feed items from a specified URL. It retrieves a set number of items, defaulting to 5 if not specified. If the URL doesn’t exist or an error occurs, it displays an error message. The shortcode is versatile, allowing for customization of the feed count and source URL.

Shortcode: [cd_feed]


Here is a list of all possible cd_feed shortcode parameters and attributes:

  • url – Address of the feed to be fetched.
  • count – Number of feed items to display, default is 5.

Examples and Usage

Basic example – The shortcode ‘cd_feed’ is used to fetch and display feed items from a specified URL. The ‘count’ parameter determines the number of feed items to display.

[cd_feed url="" count=5 /]

Advanced examples

Using the ‘cd_feed’ shortcode to display ten feed items from the specified URL.

[cd_feed url="" count=10 /]

Displaying feed items without specifying the count. By default, it will display five feed items.
