How to use Feedzy with a shortcode

Feedzy can be used with a shortcode. The advantage of this approach is that it can be used with any WordPress theme or page builder. We recommend adding it in a shortcode block/widget if the theme/page builder you are using has such an option.

🧰 How to use it


To use Feedzy in a shortcode, you need to insert the shortcode block.

📝 Note: In this example, we have used the Gutenberg editor, but it's the same for other page builders.


Get the feed URL that you want to display and paste it into the shortcode form.

[feedzy-rss feeds=""]
