Tabulizer's RSS Feed Module

What it does

Tabulizer's RSS Feed Module offers a convenient way to display an RSS Feed that you have constructed via a use of Tabulizer's data source.

How it works

You simply select the desired data source from the list of available data sources, as shown below:

That's it! The rest of the parameters, are the standard Joomla module parameters. If you want to create a new data source of type RSS Feed Reader, please read Tabulizer's documentation, including the following tutorials:

Note: RSS Feeds are not limited to module positions, but they can be displayed everywhere, including Joomla articles and 3rd party extensions using data source tags. Use the Data Source Tags editor's button to generate and insert the tag.


What makes Tabulizer a unique solution when it comes to reading RSS feeds is its extensibility. You can have an unlimited number of rules, each corresponding to a separate feature, to fine tune your reader and do things like:

  • Add pagination and filtering
  • Highlight items that contain certain words
  • Remove items that contain certain words
  • Limit the number of news items, characters per description, show or hide included images, optionally strip html tags or not and so on
  • Add your own headers/extra rows
  • Combine feeds from various sources (no limit)
  • Use URL parameters to customize the RSS Feed URL.
  • Choose the format of the published date or hide the published date
  • Style the resulting table any way you want. No more limited styling presets.
  • Make it responsive to fit well in smaller resolution screens (smart phones and tablets).
  • Enable caching, so the feed is displayed faster
  • Support for UTF-8 and other encodings
  • Add resulting output anywhere you wish (articles, posts, pages, modules, plugins, 3rd party extensions, etc). Just add the data source tag you are ready to go.
  • Developers (or anyone with limited knowledge of PHP) have the freedom to do anything they want with the use of modification functions.


Just look at the right and bottom side of this page. It displays two RSS Feeds:

  • The first one from Google News (Top Stories).
  • The second one is from the same source, but pagination has been added.
