WPeMatico
Pulling linked feeds in (3 posts)

    I am relatively new to WP so please cut me a little slack..... I have a WP site where I am pulling info in to it from my google alerts feed. The problem is that I only get the title and a small blurb underneath. If you click the link it takes you to the actual doc. Is there a way I can pull some of the linked content onto my site? Setting up and using your plugin has been simple!

    Last question: What is the rewrite on the bottom of the post. I dont see any documentation on this?

    Thanks in advance for any help and advice.

    There is a Help link in the Rewrite section which expands into a summary of how to use it.

    regarding problem #1, it is possible that this is feed specific - sometimes feeds are provided in this format to ensure that people actually visit the original website, and not just the one scraping all the content.

    So if that's also the case for your feeds, one would need to modify WPeMatico to automatically check for very short paragraphs (i.e. <= 200 words) and then look for a link, and use the link for extracting a more comprehensive summary of the feed.

    sort of like a recursive feed parser
