Insert the content of any page/file/script output on the Internet into any WordPress post or page.
Examples of use:
Frequently updated or time-sensitive content.
Automated content generated from software.
The plugin is especially useful when you have more than one WordPress installation, perhaps on several domains.
One file/script can provide content for each WordPress installation. Contact information, special sales, political notices, daily quotes, any content can be provided by that one central file or script.

After uploading the Local Syndication plugin to the plugins directory and activating it:
Insert the following shortcode on a line by itself at the point where you want the content to be inserted.
Replace http://example.come/page.html with the URL to the content.
That is the minimum you need to know to use the Local Syndication plugin.
But there is more to know, including what to do when a page does not publish correctly.

Advanced features include:
The ability to insert the content into an iframe instead of publishing it directly on the post or page.
The ability to insert plain text content with optional CSS formatting.
- What if the web page I’m syndicating has relative URLs?
To discourage robots and spiders from reading the syndicated content. It may be desirable to keep ads out of search engine indexes, for example, and perhaps also off-topic content so SE’s do not come to wrong conclusions regarding a page’s topic.
