The Feedweb Feeder: Now Available

We here at Feedweb Research are constantly working to create a tool that makes blogging more efficient for those of us on WordPress. This brings us to our latest update and the newest game-changing feature to the Feedweb plugin, which is the new Feedweb Feeder (look to the right of this post!!)

The New Feature: The Feeder

The Feedweb feeder is a sidebar/footer widget that is generally placed on the right sidebar. At this point in time it shows your latest posts, just like any “latest post widget”, however the click through rate with Feedweb will undoubtedly be much higher – no one will be able to ignore it.

The Feeder can either run automatically, or manually by skipping through the posts or by scrolling down the Feeder until the next round of posts have loaded (depending on the settings options you have selected).

 

The different settings to choose from:

  • Width and height, although it is highly recommended to keep the width at the 250-300 pixels range, unless you will be placing the widget in the footer, in which case there may be more space. Feel free to play with the height – based on the space you want to allocate for it on your sidebar (or elsewhere).
  • We recommend keeping the default “Show  header” setting in place. By showing the header there is the option of showing the navigator and having the feeder run automatically so that as the reader is on the page the feeder flips through your posts. Keep in mind that readers can pause the “auto run feed”, and take all the time in the world looking at the posts.
    • If you do remove the header, then readers will scroll through the widget manually to see posts.
  • We recommend “author info” only for those that use a Gravatar (that’s just our opinion). If you don’t have a Gravatar you can still keep this setting in order to display: author image (or lack of one), site name, and date of publication).
  • Showing the footer is totally up to you.
  • Maximum image height is especially important for those  that sometimes use large images and other times smaller ones. Play around with this setting and see what works best for your feature images.

 How to Add the Feeder

First of all, if you are not using the Feedweb plugin then this is the time to add the plugin, and see how the widget works.

 Adding the Feeder to the Right Sidebar:

For those of you already using the Feedweb plugin, go to Dashboard ->Appearance -> Widget ->Sidebar/Secondary -> Text

-> Title, please add

-> Text, please add a short-code “FeedwebFeederBar” and surround it with [].

Don’t worry, the instructions on how to insert the Feeder widget will appear on the setting’s page, under the “Feeder” tab.

 

That’s it for now bloggers. This is just the beginning of a new blogging revolution that will soon hit blogs every

    Hello Michael,

    Getting my readers to stay on my site longer, become more engaged, and take action is an objective.

    I replaced my Genesis Featured Posts widget with your Feeder plugin here >> http://www.jasonfox.me/blog

    Looks good, I will give it a try. Thanks for the heads up.

    I’m presently looking into where this will fit best on my website. I think it is a cool plugin. However, the way my site is setup now, I would have to make the widget smaller.

    Nice work

      Hi James,

      Thanks for stopping by, and as always showing your support for Feedweb. We hope that you will be able to add even a smaller version to see how it affects the readers visiting your site, however it is not critical. Do keep your eyes open as we will be adding a few more features to the sidebar widget that will make it truly remarkable.

  7. Hi Amiti,

    Well, it’s my first time hearing or reading about the Feedweb Feeder and it looks like a valuable pulg-in to have.

    Thanks for explaining it and I will try to install the plugin first and go about adding the widget. I guess if I have any problem, I know who to ask now.

    Thanks Amiti for sharing!! Have a great weekend ahead.

    Be Blessed,

      Hi Neamat,

      I am glad that I was able to help find out a bit regarding our plugin Feedweb, and IMO it is a valuable plugin (but you probably knew what I thought already). I am always happy to teach a blogger about Feedweb, and I am always a couple of clicks away if you ever have any questions or inquiries.

      Have a splendid week!

  8. Your right, having people stay on your blog longer is a huge bonus. Displaying other posts on offer is therefore incredibly important to reduce that bounce rate.

    I love the look of this widget, I might at around with it on my sites to see how it looks in action!
