Feedwordpress: Disable automatic inclusion to Category (5 posts)

    I read this in the plugin page of feedwordpress:

    WordPress allows for posts to be placed in categories. Each syndicated post that FeedWordPress adds to the WordPress database is placed into a set of categories. FeedWordPress gets the list of category names to use from two sources:

    1. Categories (or “tags”) that the original author placed the post in on her blog

    2. Categories that you set explicitly for each feed using the Categories checkbox under Links –> Syndicated –> Edit. For example, if you wanted all the posts from Alas, A Blog to be placed in the “Pacific Northwest” category and the “Cartoonists” category (in addition to any other categories that they were placed in on Alas, A Blog), you could do this by creating the categories, going to Links –> Syndicated, clicking the “Edit” link for Alas, A Blog, and checking those two categories under the checkbox captioned “Categories.”

    I want my syndicated posts to go to one certain category only but the problem is that feedwordpress automatically adds a post to other categories as well.

    Is there a way to disable #1 (way of how wordpress adds posts to categories) and just enable #2?

    another bump

  4. Questions like these should really be directed towards the author of the plugin.

    There is a problem with this version of FWP and it's handling of categories.

    @Otto42 - The author of the plugin hasn't replied to ANY questions since December, I imagine that is why the question is being asked here in the support forum for the plugin.

    There are a lot of issues with this version... none of which have been addressed by the author.
