Fresh Installation

Step 0: SimplePie Core

This plugin relies on another WordPress plugin called SimplePie Core. This plugin is shared by other plugins that integrate with SimplePie, so check to see if you already have it. If you're using WordPress 2.3 or newer, the WordPress Plugins control panel will tell you if you need to update to a newer version.

If you don't already have it, follow steps 1-3 for both SimplePie Core and SimplePie Plugin for WordPress.

Step 1: Download the plugin

There's a link above to download the SimplePie Plugin for WordPress (make sure you know where you've downloaded them to). Once you've done that, unzip it.

Step 2: Upload the plugin folder

The entire plugin folder should be uploaded as-is to your WordPress installation, so that it ends up as wp-content/plugins/simplepie-plugin-for-wordpress.

Step 3: Enable the plugin

Log into your WordPress control panel, go to “plugins”, and enable the SimplePie Plugin for WordPress plugin. If you need more help installing WordPress plugins, check out the WordPress plugin installation instructions. From there, you can go to the new Options → SimplePie for WP panel and configure your default settings.

The SimplePie Plugin for WordPress is now installed!
