Install using the Plugin Manager and the download URL above, which points to latest version of the plugin. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.

The actual retrieval of the feeds is done by browsing to This URL should be pinged regularly by cron or some quasi-cron web service; see the Automating section below for more information.


See the plugin in action here.

Define the feeds to be included with one URL on each line:


Note the use of ~~NOCACHE~~.

For other configuration options, please see the plugin's section in your site's Configuration Manager.


The feed-update URL should be called regularly by a cron (or other task-scheduling) service. If you set up a system to do this, then you should set a token in the plugin configuration; this will prevent the possibility of other requests wasting system resources by also requesting this URL.

An example cron entry looks like the following:

34 * * * * curl --silent

If you use an automated update system, then you can do away with ~~NOCACHE~~ in the page text and instead force-purge the cache after the update operation. To do this, add a second cron entry similar to the following:

44 * * * * curl --silent
