RSS Readers, Social Web, RSS Syndicate, Social Display

Adding RSS/Atom syndicated content inside your Joomla website is now super-easy and simple with the "Simple RSS Feed Reader" module from JoomlaWorks. All you have to do is add a few feeds to the module parameters, publish the module in some position and that's it!
You can even publish multiple feeds at the same time (meaning in the same module instance) and have them display combined!

The "Simple RSS Feed Reader" module is based on the same feed parsing engine that powers, the most popular Joomla news aggregator in the Joomla Community.

The feeds are stored inside your Joomla site's cache folder and refreshed in a specific time interval, which you set in the module's parameters. This feed cache is different to Joomla's cache, as you may need to have your site refreshed every 5 minutes, but have the feeds the module retrieves stored longer than 5 minutes.


  • one input box for feeds enables you to add unlimited feeds per module instance
  • combine multiple feeds into one output list
  • show or hide the first image inside each feed content
  • extract and resize remote images for more layout control
  • there's an additional option to serve resized images using a remote image resizing service ( - powered by CloudFlare's CDN) for fast loading times and without stressing your server
  • additional content options include pre-text, post-text and a custom link option at the bottom of the feeds block
  • MVC templating is standard - the module comes pre-packed with 3 sub-templates that will fit most sites - they also serve as a great starting point if you want to create your own
  • a special 3rd template (which was added in v3.8.0) allows for rendering any YouTube Playlist's feed as a list of videos (requires the use of the AllVideos plugin - also free)
  • one input box for feeds enables you to add unlimited sources to your module
  • after you install the module, add one or more feed sources in the related box under "Fetch Options" and simply adjust the "Feed Content Options" in the module parameters.


After you install the module, add one or more feed sources in the related box under "Fetch Options" and simply adjust the "Feed Content Options" in the module parameters. Then publish into some module position.


The module comes with 3 sub-templates, which should be sufficient for most websites. If you want more control, you can simply override both the generated HTML and CSS, using MVC template overrides within your Joomla template. Or you can create new folders inside your template's /html/modjwsrfr/ folder and just select the new ones in the module's parameters.

The compact template is inspired by

Simple RSS Feed Reader is fully compatible with Joomla versions 1.5, 2.5 & 3.x on servers running PHP versions 5, 7 & 8.

A version for Joomla 4.x will be released soon.


"Simple RSS Feed Reader" is a Joomla module developed by JoomlaWorks, released under the GNU General Public License.

Works great for what I need it. The compact design option makes it fit perfectly in my template.
Ease of use
Very easy and self explanatory
I used this to: displaying RSS feeds on my site
Ease of use
I used this to: Can i give administrative rights to this module for users who log in,to change parameters of module through front end only? So that they can put their own feeds and links?
Works great, like the previews and and the multiple feeds.
Ease of use
Had trouble with the default Blogger and feedburner feeds, they are atom feeds and feed format would cause links to comment feeds.
Didn't include how to use with Blogger, fix is to use format:

alt=rss is important
The plugin doesn't really work to retrieve RSS feed from twitter (for instance using

BUT it is still a great plugin which works as expected with other sources. Thanks a lot for your work!

Hey guys, your module rocks. Just want to say THANK YOU for the great work. I had problem displaying more than one feed in a single module position on my website using the Joomla! 3.1.1 Feed module. When I downloaded and installed your module, it worked flawlessly. Now my site looks the way I want it. Just posted a link on JoomlaShine forum.

Keep up the good work.

RSS Feed Reader

Started using this extension and it looks very good. Then found a problem which was posted on the Forum, but it seems there is no support for free extensions.

I now had to convert to a different extension as I cant have a faulty one on a live site
