WordPress: RSS Widget Bug builtin Widget (class-wp-widget-rss.php)

Details: If you enable the basic builtin RSS Widget Module and set the RSS Feed URL like

http://www.domainname.com/feed/ the widget set the URL only on the little „RSS Icon“ but NOT on the RSS Hyperlink ! The Hyperlink is pulling the Value of $url (www.domainname.com) but not adding „/feed/“ subdir value.


  1. go ../wp-includes/widgets/
  2. edit with $nano class-wp-widget-rss.php
  3. go line 81 show title „rsswidget“  href “ ‚  .  esc_url ( $link ) .  #change here $link to $url
  4. exit and save..
  5. check results..
