    replace-dashboard-news-feed-with-another-rss-feed

    Adding this snippet to the functions.php of your wordpress theme will let you replace the existing RSS feed widget with another RSS feed. Change YOUR_FEED_NAME with the name you wish to display in the widget title this is located on line 09. You will need to also make adjustments to “url, title, items, show_summery, show_author, show_date” located from line 14-19.

    wordpress snippet : PHP

    <>
    add_action('wp_dashboard_setup', 'my_dashboard_widgets');
    function my_dashboard_widgets() {
         global $wp_meta_boxes;
         unset(
              $wp_meta_boxes['dashboard']['normal']['core']['dashboard_plugins'],
              $wp_meta_boxes['dashboard']['side']['core']['dashboard_secondary'],
              $wp_meta_boxes['dashboard']['side']['core']['dashboard_primary']
         );
         wp_add_dashboard_widget( 'dashboard_custom_feed', 'YOUR_FEED_NAME' , 'dashboard_custom_feed_output' ); 
    }
    
    function dashboard_custom_feed_output() {
         echo '<div class="rss-widget">';
         wp_widget_rss_output(array(
              'url' => 'http://wpsnipp.com/feed/',
              'title' => 'MY_FEED_TITLE',
              'items' => 2,
              'show_summary' => 1,
              'show_author' => 0,
              'show_date' => 1
         ));
         echo '</div>';
    }
