  3. Enter [RSSjb feed="ENTER WEBSITE FEED HERE"
    •  For example, [RSSjb feed="http://blogs.uoregon.edu/testblog/feed"]
  4. You can add the following to customize how the feed displays:

* num: number of items to be displayed (default: 3);
* pubdate: either true or false to display the publication date/not;
* pubtime: either true or false to display the publication time/not;
* excerpt: either true or false to display the excerpt/not;
* charex: limit the number of the ecerpt chars to be displayed;
* list: either “UL” or “OL” to get unordered or ordered lists;
* target: either “_blank” or “_self” to get links opened in new/the same windows;
* pubauthor: true/false whether you allow this plugin’s author footer to be displayed or not;

Example: [RSSjb feed="http://blogs.uoregon.edu/testblog/feed" num="8" list="OL" target="_self"]
