“RSS from Aljazeera” WordPress Plugin

Aljazeera RSS screenshotI am big fan of Aljazeera network. Aljazeera made a rare example in the Arab world for professional and free media. It is my favorite channel and I made a WordPress widget to fetch the latest news from aljazeera.net website.

The plugin is pretty simple. Fetching the RSS feed and displaying it. It uses Simple Pie which is  already packed with WordPress and it caches the response to decrease the load on the web server.

The layout is flexible and it has a variable width. You can also hide Aljazeera logo and link. You can also display a small description of each news title. When you hover over a title you will see the time of this news item in GMT. The WordPress time locale format will be used.

There is only an Arabic version of this plugin, if you need an English version let me know and I might make an English version to fetch English news from aljazeera.com

I puplished the plugin on WordPress plugin directory. It is my first WordPress plugin and I hope it will be useful.
