RSS CORS Enable is a simple yet powerful plugin designed to solve the common problem of accessing WordPress RSS feeds from different origins. By default, accessing WordPress RSS feeds via JavaScript from a domain different than the one where WordPress is hosted can result in Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) errors. This plugin addresses this issue by adding an Access-Control-Allow-Origin: * header to your WordPress RSS feed, making it accessible from any origin.


  1. Upload the rss-cors-enable directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. That’s it! The plugin works out of the box, no configuration is needed.


Can I restrict the RSS feed to be available for specific domains instead of all?

Yes, although the default behaviour is to allow all origins (Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *), you can modify the plugin code to specify specific domains. Replace the * in the header("Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *"); line with the domain you wish to allow. When you do this, it might be wiped away when upgrading the plugin.

Does this plugin add CORS headers to other parts of my website than the RSS feed?

No, it shouldn’t, as far as we’ve tested. This plugin is specifically designed to modify only the WordPress RSS feed responses. Other parts of your WordPress site or API will not be affected.
