How can I Display the News?

After activating the plugin, you will see “Top News” menu in WordPress Admin Dashboard.

Firstly, Go to “API Settings” and add your API which you collected from

Secondly, Go to “General Settings” and select your news source.

Finally, Put the shortcode [wp_top_news] in a page editor and Update it.

You will see your news section on that page.

Note: We can not guarranty the API working or not because we have no relation with them. So buy the API at your own risk!

I have changed News source, but news feed not uppdating

As there is a cache active for 15 minute, so you have to wait for 15 minute to see the updated news.

How can I reduce the Cached time?

The API we are using here has a limitation for 15 minute delay news update. So there is nothing we can do now.

How to increase requests per day for a specific API Key?

You can register to and get your personal API key and use it in API Key field. This will increase your requests per day limit.

Note: We can not guarranty the API working or not because we have no relation with them. So buy the API at your own risk!

I have changed News source but there is no data!

Sometimes due to main API server loading issue you may see no data. Keep refreshing until your data is properly cached.

Any planning to add more options/newspaper?

Yes, we are working on it. Please stay with us.
