CyberSyn

Description

The CyberSyn plugin (developed by CyberSEO.net) is powerful, lightweight and easy to use Atom/RSS aggregation and content curation plugin for WordPress. The CyberSyn plugin has one very unique feature which allows you to import full text articles.

Features:

  • Automatically generates WordPress posts from Atom/RSS feeds and runs your site on autopilot.
  • Embeds videos from YouTube, Vimeo, Flickr, IGN, Ustream.tv and DailyMotion RSS feeds. Just enable the “Embed videos” option and the plugin will embed videos with descriptions directly into your posts.
  • Generates featured images (post thumbnails) from post images or media attachments.
  • Full Text RSS extractor is 100% free and allows one to import full-text articles. This feature is based on freeware GPL library by fivefilters.org. This built-in feature works right out of the box. No 3rd-party services or paid API keys!
  • Allows one to hotlink the syndicated post images or upload them to the server.
  • Allows one to embed media attachments (images and videos) into the posts.
  • Translates the syndicated articles from and to more than 100 languages via free Yandex Translate and premium Google Translate services.
  • Advanced RSS/Atom parsing algorithm has the ability to pull the feeds fully automatically. Furthermore, you can assign the updating period to each particular feed. Also you can set up a maximum number of posts that will be syndicated at once. This is a very useful feature for SEO of your blogs.
  • Adjustable post duplicate check by GUID, post title or both.
  • Allows one to add a user-defined HTML code (custom footers) to every syndicated post.
  • Converts character encoding if the source feed has a non UTF-8 one. E.g. KOI8-R, KOI8-U, Windows-1251, Windows-1256, Windows-1255 etc. Thus the plugin is compatible with all existing national character encoding systems.
  • The plugin can be scheduled by a server-side cron and by WordPress pseudo-cron.

Requirements:

  • PHP 5.2.4 or greater
  • MySQL 5.0 or greater
  • PHP mbstring extension
  • PHP cURL extension (recommended)
  • PHP variable safe_mode must be disabled (if cURL is not installed)
  • PHP variable allow_url_fopen must be enabled (if cURL is not installed)
  • Access to cron on server (recommended)

Reviews

Super!!!… only one suggestion. 😉

Hey…

I have tried other complicated plugins but this is easy and phenomenal!

ONLY ONE THING:
Its possible to add the feature to choose post type?
Because in my video blog I need to set the Youtube RSSs to be posted as VIDEO (custom post type). Currently CiberSyn is doing as standard post type and despite i have configured in WP Settings-Writting Post Type VIDEO as default.

Everything else is working great!

Many thanks for this easy and very efficient plugin.

Great Plugin but

This is an amazing plugin and does an awesome job. I just have one problem, and maybe it’s a bug.

I decided to auto sync news to my existing music blog, because I spend most of my time creating original content for my members.

There are 3 feeds that I use, HOWEVER, when I add a new feed, the previous feed pulls no content. It goes through syncing but it only pulls data from the last feed in the list.

Bug maybe?
