This plugin creates a new RSS widget. You can use this to replace the built in RSS widget or along side it. It is substantially more powerful than the built in widget in that you have complete control over how the feed is displayed via XSL template files. The plugin also includes an admin page for creating, editing and deleting the xsl files, along with running tests to ensure your environment is correctly setup.
You will need PHP 5, DOM extention and XSL extentions loaded on your server. If you don't know what you have then activate the plugin and view the configuration page, it will test your environment.
The plugin comes with a few example XSL files to get you started. You may not even need to edit or create your own depending on what feeds you want to syndicate. XSL is not the easiest thing, however once once you understand the basics its fairly strait forward.
The included XSL teaplates demonstrate various XSLT methods, such as conditional statemenets, variable use, XPath expressions and namespace access. I strongly encourage you to analyse the included templates when learning xslt.
