Merging RSS feeds (especially in Wordpress)

If you run a WordPress site which makes heavy use of RSS feeds (rhey make a great widget) then you may sometimes want to merge 2 feeds.

The tool you want is http://www.rssmix.com/

Open that link up, paste several rss feeds in, and copy the resulting merged feed name that you are given.  That can be used in a widget….

The following merged feeds have been created:
News and headlines from the Winchester and Portsmouth Guild website plus the C&S District feed:

http://wpbells.org/category/news/feed/ – added to database.
http://wpbells.org/category/headlines/feed/ – added to database.
http://wpbells.org/category/christchurch-and-Southampton-district/feed/ – added to database.

These were combined and became:

http://www.rssmix.com/u/8174265/rss.xml

But that still isn’t quite complete – the Southampton City Ringers have their own blog so the full picture would be the above plus theirs….

And that results in http://www.rssmix.com/u/8174268/rss.xml which is the full news picture for a member of C&S District.
