Although you can use FeedWind as a fully functional trial (demo) version with no signup required, you are restricted to the preview to view it and you cannot get code to put on your website without signing up for the Free or Pro version.
Registration for a FeedWind account requires just an email address (we don’t store any other information about you) and takes just a few moments to complete. If you sign-up for a free account (just an email, Facebook or Google account required), you will be able to store 5 widgets in your personal dashboard and use up to 5 feed URLs in any of those widgets. Those who need more widgets will need to take up a paid subscription for Feedwind Pro or Plus plans which allow you to save 20/100 widgets and aggregate 20 feed URLs per widget.
Pro and Plus versions (available as 14-day trial)
The Pro version is obtained via an annual subscription which allows you to store up to 20 widgets. The Plus plan allows for up to 100 widgets. After signing up you will be able to access your personal dashboard where your widgets are stored. Initially you can try out the Plus plan free for 14 days. We do not require any payment details to be entered until the trial period is over at which point you can pay for a subscription to the Plus or Pro plans, or continue with the Free plan.
Signing up for a FeedWind account
When you sign up, you will automatically get access to a free 14-day trial. This gives you a chance to enjoy all the features of our Plus plan which allows you to save up to 1oo widgets. You can subscribe to the Pro or Plus plan at any time during the trial period. If you decide not to subscribe, we will simply revert you to the free plan. Any widgets you have created during the trial above the 5 widget limit for the free plan, will still remain in your dashboard (but not accessible) in case at some point in the future you wish to subscribe, at which time they will be re-enabled.
The signup process
After clicking on the Sign up button on our homepage you will be presented with a dialogue offering you a choice of FeedWind account signup options
- Email – Enter a valid email address, choose a password and you are done
- Facebook – This option opens a dialogue that allows you to login to your Facebook account and use it for future authentication
- Google – This option opens a dialogue that allows you to login to your Google account and use it for future authentication
As soon as you hit the Create account button or finish logging in through Facebook or Google, you will be directed to the Setup screen where you can start creating widgets.
Updating your Feedwind account settings
If you need to update your settings, click on the settings icon (a cog wheel) in the main menu bar.
This will open your profile and account settings where you can make changes to your details including your email address, your password, your links to social media accounts and the language that your dashboard and setup screen uses (English or Japanese).
Deleting an account
If for any reason you need to delete your account, you can do so from this settings screen. You can always come back and create another account again in the future.
NOTE: If you delete your FeedWind account, you will lose all the widgets you have saved.
The FeedWind dashboard is an easy to use library of your widgets. From the dashboard you can edit your widget, get the code snippet, rename, duplicate and delete the widget. You will get a confirmation message before any deletion changes are applied to avoid you deleting your widget in error.
Your saved widget limits
There are limits as to how many widgets you may save, depending on the type of account you have:
- Free plan allows you to save 5 widgets in your dashboard. To signup all you need is an email address or you can use a social media account (Facebook/Google).
- Pro Plan allows you to save up to 20 widgets.
- Plus plan allows you to save up to 100 widgets
Your feed URL aggregation limits (how many feed URLs you can combine into a widget)
FeedWind allows you to create an RSS widget using multiple feeds (feed aggregation). Adding multiple feeds together into a single widget creates a lot of server calls and when more than 10 feed URLs are aggregated, the resulting widget can make page loading very slow. For this reason we have imposed a Feed URL limit on the aggregation feature. If you exceed the number of URLs you will receive an error message.
|Version||Save widgets||Feed URLs per widget||Price|
|Free (signed up)||5||5||Free|
