The script belows shows the last 5 (of max 30) entries.

  $(document).ready(function(){
    $('#feedResults').FeedEk({
      FeedUrl : 'http://www.guestales.co.uk/kingston-beer-and-cider-fesitval/feed/entries/rss?limit=5',
      ShowDesc : true, ShowPubDate:true,
      DescCharacterLimit:0, TitleLinkTarget:'_blank',
      DateFormat:'DD/MM/YYYY', DateFormatLang:'en'
    });
  });

RSS Feed Ticker

This example uses a ticker instead of a list, here shows the last 5 (of max 30) entries. Although displaying entries in a carousel usually sucks, this one it not too bad as it will pause with the mouse so you can read/copy the tasting notes easily.

Script

  $(document).ready(function(){
    $('#feedTicker').FeedEk({FeedUrl : 'http://www.guestales.co.uk/kingston-beer-and-cider-fesitval/feed/entries/rss?limit=5',
      ShowDesc : true, ShowPubDate:true, DescCharacterLimit:0,
      TitleLinkTarget:'_blank', DateFormat:'DD/MM/YYYY', DateFormatLang:'en'
      }, function(e) {
        var ticker = $(e);
        // Stop/start 
        $(window).blur(function() {
          ticker.vTicker('pause', true);
          }).focus(function() {
            ticker.vTicker('pause', false);
          });
        // Initialise ticker
        ticker.vTicker('init', {
          showItems: 1, pause: 3000, margin: 5, padding: 5
        });
      }
    );
  });
