    Hi:

    I'm not sure if feedwordpress can or can't do that: import custom fields from source site and store them in custom fields in its site, example:

    Custom field name from source site: [user avatar url]
    Data from that custom field: [www.avatarurl.com]

    and import them into imported posts using same (or different) custom field's names.

    Is it possible?

    I'm trying to do the exact same thing with some feeds. Have you found any good info on how to get this done?

    I am using the plugin MORE FIELDS to define custom meta field, let me explain it by an example, this is the (rss) feed content;
    <item>
    <title>EXAMPLE TITLE</title>
    <description>
    BLA BLA BLA BLA BLA ...
    </description>
    <link>
    http://www.my-web-address-somewhere.com/10232/
    </link>
    <guid>
    http://www.my-web-address-somewhere.com/10232/adasdasdsa/
    </guid>
    <pubDate>Thu, 15 Dec 2011 03:00:00 +0100</pubDate>
    </item>

    And with the plugin MORE FIELDS I've made a custom meta box so that users when editing a post, if they want, they could enter an url, the key for the meta box is 'webaddres'

    In the settings of FeedWordpress, after adding the RSS feed, I went to "SYNDICATION" -> clicked on the name of the RSS feed -> went to Custom Feed Settings (for use in templates) -> added 'webaddress' as a KEY and in VALUE typed the following '$(link)'

    So now, if there is a LINK/URL in the rss feed, it automatically fills in the custom meta field of the post and publishes the post with the link/url.

    I hope my explanation is clear, English is my third language, so please don't pay attention to grammar/spelling :)

    CORRECTION ON
    "SYNDICATION" -> clicked on the name of the RSS feed -> went to Custom Feed Settings (for use in templates) -> added 'webaddress' as a KEY and in VALUE typed the following '$(link)'

    SHOULD BE
    "SYNDICATION" -> clicked on the name of the RSS feed -> clicked on SYNDICATION (second link on the top of the page, next to FEED) -> went to Custom Feed Settings (for use in templates) -> added 'webaddress' as a KEY and in VALUE typed the following '$(link)'
