YD BuddyPress Feed Syndication

Description: Syndicate external RSS feeds into your BuddyPress activity feeds (like with notes on a Facebook wall).

Syndicate RSS feeds into your user or group Activity stream

Select any kind of RSS feeds that will be agregated into your BuddyPress activity stream. For example, to import an existing blog.

Each BuddyPress user can select as many external RSS feeds as they want. They will be aggregated (mixed) into their activity feed automatically, with a title, an excerpt and a link to the original post.

External blogs can also be aggregated into group activity feeds the same way.

A simple way to promote any external blog content inside a BuddyPress community.

Uses WP-cron to update feeds automatically.

Compatible with PHP5.

Requires the BuddyPress social plugin for WordPress to be installed and configured (will not work and is not useful without BuddyPress / will cause a fatal error upon installation if BuddyPress is not activated).
