Support » Plugin: WP RSS Multi Importer » RSS Noob – Getting Started with RSS Multi-Importer

  • I’m looking into using your plugin to create a custom RSS feed page with text and featured image shown as thumbnail. I’ve set up a test site that mirrors a client’s blog. I was thinking I could use the standard WP RSS feed with your plugin, but I’m not getting any results yet.

    I was able to create a Feed List by using the standard WP URL for RSS2, (www.mywebsite.com/feed/rss2/)
    and this is what the feed list looks like:
    Feed List

    Using the shortcode [wp_rss_multi_importer] on a test page I got the following message –
    “There is a problem – it appears you are using categories and no feeds have been put into those categories.”

    I’ve since gone to the Multi-Importer > Categories admin page and set up Multi-importer Categories to match the actual Post Categories of the posts available in the feed list:
    Post Categories

    And changed the short-code to read: [wp_rss_multi_importer category=”1,2,3,4,5,6″]

    FYI: The Posts admin page looks like this (so you can see the categories):
    Blog Posts

    I continue to get the “There is a problem – it appears you are using categories and no feeds have been put into those categories” message on the test page instead of any feed list. The default WordPress RSS feed list is working OK though.

    On the Diagnostics page I see this message: “You appear to be running the Feed to Post and chosen to have no text”. Can you explain this further?
