Articles are obtained from a network of news sources.

Use of the Feedzilla service is subject to the following terms of service:

Install the plugin and use the [cw_feedzilla_newsfeed] shortcode on any page to display the news.

The shortcode also accepts the following attributes, all of which are optional:
[cw_feedzilla_newsfeed language=”en_us” category=”World News” subcategory=”Top Stories” order=”date” search=”wordpress”]

If attributes are provided to the shortcode the relevant selections are removed from the navbar, e.g. if language is provided in the shortcode the language dropdown is removed from the news navbar. If all the attributes are provided the navbar is removed altogether. In this way you can list articles from a specific category and visitors to the site will not be able to change the selection.
