Premium Add-Ons

With our premium add-ons you can do such things as creating auto-blogging websites, displaying job listings, importing YouTube videos, building news websites, and lots more. Take a look at our Use Cases and Showcase for more ideas. Go here to watch the video tutorials for our premium add-ons.

The add-ons currently available are:

  • Feed to Post is an advanced importer that lets you import RSS feed items as WordPress posts or any other custom post type. You can use it to populate a website in minutes (auto-blog). This is the most popular and feature-filled extension. (It does not use shortcodes)

  • Full Text RSS Feeds adds connectivity to our premium full text service, which allows you to import the full post content for an unlimited number of feed items per feed source, even when the feed itself doesn’t provide it. (Requires Feed to Post)

  • WordAi allows you to take an RSS feed and turn it into new content that is both completely unique and completely readable. (Requires Feed to Post and a WordAi account)

  • SpinnerChief is an extension for Feed to Post that allows you to integrate the SpinnerChief article spinner so that the imported content is both completely unique and completely readable. (Requires Feed to Post and a SpinnerChief account)

  • Excerpts & Thumbnails displays an excerpt and thumbnail image (taken from within the RSS feed) together with the title, date and source of each feed item.It uses the shortcode to display the feed items.

  • Categories categorises your feed sources and allows you to display feed items from a particular category within your site using the shortcode parameters. (It does not use WordPress Post Categories)

  • Keyword Filtering filters the feed items to be imported based on your own keywords, key phrases, or tags; you only get the items you’re interested in. It is compatible with all other add-ons.

  • Widget adds a widget to your website that displays all the imported feed items. It can also display excerpts and thumbnail images when used in conjunction with the Excerpts & Thumbnails add-on.

There are also two premium bundles available, the Simple Feeds Bundle and the Advanced Feeds Bundle. View a comparison of these bundles here or follow the guides below for more information:

We also provide a Feed Creator service that allows you to generate RSS feeds from any webpage, even if it doesn’t have its own RSS feed.

Installation

Follow these instructions to install and set up the core WP RSS Aggregator plugin:

  1. Download the plugin from the “Download” button above.
  2. Upload the wp-rss-aggregator zip file to your site’s /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Activate the WP RSS Aggregator plugin from the ‘Plugins’ section in your dashboard.
  4. Configure the plugin by going to the RSS Aggregator menu item that appears in your dashboard menu.
  5. Set up your feed sources and general settings.
  6. Use the WP RSS Aggregator shortcode in your posts and/or pages to display the imported feed items: [wp-rss-aggregator]

Alternatively, you can find our plugin through your WordPress dashboard:

  1. Go to the Plugins section in your WordPress site’s dashboard.
  2. Click the “Add New” button.
  3. Search for “WP RSS Aggregator”.
  4. When found, click on the “Install” button, then hit the “Activate” button once it has installed.
  5. Set up your feed sources and general settings.
  6. Use the WP RSS Aggregator shortcode in your posts and/or pages to display the imported feed items: [wp-rss-aggregator]

You can easily select the source for your feeds and also insert a limit via
shortcode parameters as shown below.
To get your feed source ID simply hover over the required feed source in the feed source listing page. It will appear beneath the name.

[wp-rss-aggregator source=”ID” limit=”num”]

An example of a shortcode parameter in use could be:

[wp_rss_aggregator link_before='li class="feed-link"' link_after='/li']

It is advisable to use the ‘HTML’ view of the editor when inserting shortcodes with parameters.

Usage within theme files

Here are two examples of a function call from within the theme’s files:

<?php 
wprss_display_feed_items( $args = array(
    'links_before' => '<ul>',
    'links_after' => '</ul>',
    'link_before' => '<li>',
    'link_after' => '</li>',
    'limit' => '8',
    'source' => '5,9'
    )); 
?>

OR

<?php do_shortcode('[wp-rss-aggregator]'); ?>

FAQ

How do I display the imported feed items?

You can either use the shortcode in your posts and pages:
[wp-rss-aggregator]

Or you can call the function directly within your theme:

Is there a limit on the number of feed sources I can use?

No, there is no limit for the number of feed sources. Having many (50+) feed sources should not present any problems in itself.
However, pulling in posts from many sites is bound to put your server under some stress, so you might want to consider using a hosting solution that goes beyond your typical shared host.

Check out our dedicated page on WordPress hosting recommendations.

Does WP RSS Aggregator work using JSON as the source?

No, our plugin does not currently import from JSON, it only imports from RSS and Atom structured XML.

Why do I get “No feed items found” when I insert the shortcode on a page or post?
  1. Try adding a few more feed sources and make sure they are valid by using the RSS Feed Validator.

  2. Try out the solutions listed on our Feed Items Not Importing documentation page.

  3. It’s important to make sure your WordPress cron system is working well. If not, the feeds cannot be imported.
    If in doubt, you can install the WP Crontrol plugin to check for bad cron,
    or go to RSS Aggregator > Debugging and hit the red button to re-import all feed items.

If the problems persist, please contact our support team.
If you’re using a premium add-on, please use the premium support channel.

Can I store imported feed items as posts?

Yes! You can do that with the Feed to Post premium add-on.
You will not only be able to store items as posts, but also as any other custom post type. You can also set the author,
set tags and categories, import images into the gallery or set featured images, and much more.

Some RSS feeds only give a short excerpt. Any way around that?

Yes, along with the Feed to Post add-on we have another add-on
called Full Text RSS Feeds that can get the full content
of most feeds that only supply a short excerpt. The Full Text RSS Feeds add-on requires Feed to Post and a valid license key to function.

I’m not sure which premium add-ons are right for me. Can you help me out?

Sure! We wrote a post just for you. Read about which add-ons
you should buy as we explain the different types of usage so you’ll know what to expect when purchasing.

If you need any further help you can contact our support team or try out our
Simple Feeds Bundle demo and Advanced Feeds Bundle demo.

Where can I find the documentation for the plugin?

Our complete documentation with FAQs included can be found on our dedicated documentation website.

Reviews

Knew the reputation; now I can only confirm it

I’ve been testing several RSS plug-ins and some worked for a while and then stopped. RSS Aggregator is very stable, so I was told, and the installation was indeed very easy. I bought the add-on to use the Feed to Post functionality but that did not work very well with an error to activate it. Luckily, thanks to the support team they fixed it within 2 days. Great service and great plug-in. Worth every dime.

Excellent plugin!

I have been using the free version of this plugin and its been great.

100% reliable, no issues and loving it. Once I contacted their support and they replied back and resolved the issue within their free support timelines which I think is awesome to do.

Highly recommended and quality plugin. I was able to use some css to tweak the display as per needs and it looks great now.

Here is a use on our website to give you a better picture (the news items):
