A plugin for Omeka Classic, eliminating the need to recreate the behaviour of a blog using Simple Pages.
Instead, this plugin allows you to present any RSS feed as a list of blog posts. This means that you can let a blogging platform like Wordpress handle the blog functionality and simply include that content into your Omeka site.
All you have to do is add a shortcode to your simple page, and this plugin will automatically fetch and render the blog posts for you.
How do I use this?
Just add the following shortcode in your Simple Page:
The URL parameter is required, and should provide the URL to the RSS feed you would like to embed.
The plugin provides a number of parameters to tweak the behaviour of the plugin:
display=longrenders the full content of each blog post in the page.
display=shortrenders a shorter version of the blog post in the page.
[blog url=http://example.com/blog display=short]
long if not specified.
Limits the number of posts to include in the page.
For example, the following will include at most 5 blog posts:
[blog url=http://example.com/blog limit=5]
Default value: displays all posts if not specified.
Control wether the blog titles are presented as links or not.
links=true will present blog titles as links pointing to the source blog post.
links=false will present the blog titles as plain text.
[blog url=http://example.com/blog links=true]
Default value: false if not specified.
Controls whether a link to the blog is presented at the bottom of the blog list.
more=truewill include a More link
more=falsewill not include a More link.
[blog url=http://example.com/blog more=true]
Default Value: false if not specified.
