'/feed.php' );    // Get a SimplePie feed object from the specified feed source.  $rss = fetch_feed( '/feed/' );    if ( ! is_wp_error( $rss ) ) : // Checks that the object is created correctly        // Figure out how many total items there are, but limit it to 5.       $maxitems = $rss->get_item_quantity( 5 );         // Build an array of all the items, starting with element 0 (first element).      $rss_items = $rss->get_items( 0, $maxitems );    endif;  ?>    <ul>      <?php if ( $maxitems == 0 ) : ?>          <li><?php _e( 'No items', 'my-text-domain' ); ?></li>      <?php else : ?>          <?php // Loop through each feed item and display each item as a hyperlink. ?>          <?php foreach ( $rss_items as $item ) : ?>              <li>                  <a href="<?php echo esc_url( $item->get_permalink() ); ?>"                      title="<?php printf( __( 'Posted %s', 'my-text-domain' ), $item->get_date('j F Y | g:i a') ); ?>">                      <?php echo esc_html( $item->get_title() ); ?>                  </a>              </li>          <?php endforeach; ?>      <?php endif; ?>  </ul>
