Ankesh Kothari, the creator of the buy me a beer WordPress plugin has done it again! This time, Ankesh has created a RSS feed footer plugin that allows you to add messages under all your new blog posts in your RSS feed. Here are just some of the thing you can do with feed footer:
1. Copyright Your Feed!
Add copyright notices under all your Blog Posts in the RSS feed
2. Monetize Your RSS Feeds.
Show and rotate ads under your blog posts in the RSS feed (maximum of 10 ads can be rotated.)
3. HTML Enabled Footers
Any HTML code can be shown in your footers! You can snazzy up your footers with banners and images! You can make your text bold or italics or underlined.
4. No Word or Line Limit.
Your footer ads and notices could be 200 lines long if you so desire!
Installation is extremely simple. Just download and unzip the plugin and then upload the folder into your wp-content/plugins folder and activate. Then it’s just a matter of adding the HTML codes for the RSS footer.
The plugin allows for ten footer messages. To show a footer under all posts, copy-and-paste the same footer in all ten fields. If you leave any of the field blank, its corresponding feed footer will show up blank too. Also, the plugin adds footers to new posts only. Old RSS posts aren’t touched.
I can think of some really cool ways to use this plugin and monetizing my RSS feed is just one of them. For example, my next contest maybe RSS only. I could use the feed footer plugin to deliver the contest information and not post the contest details in a blog post. As a matter of fact, there maybe a RSS footer message right now. I recommend you sign up to the full feed RSS. 😈
