Best Syndication

is my best tool for my web sites

Versatile, powerful, well-coded but a bit complex
By , for WP 3.5.2

I have been using Feedwordpress since a while now for a number of projects. My experience is that it works great: FWP gives you a lot of options to customize your aggregation and does so while giving full control to the user.

This also makes it a bit complex to use for more novice users I guess. That's the only serious downside to this plugin: you will need some time to understand and get into it.

As RSS-feed support goes; there is a lot of non-standard garbage out there and FWP deals with -most- of them in a good way.

I authored a plugin for FeedWordpress ( FeedWordpress Advanced Filters ) and found that the structure of FWP is excellent to work with. With a few filter/action hooks I was able to capture most of the work FWP is doing and make my alterations and features to it.

To conclude: This is great plugin for both simply just grabbing a few feeds and showing them to more difficult and complex situations with lot's of feeds.

Minor glitch happened 05-04-2013. It's working good now. Looked at some other rss aggregator's and realized how simple Feedwordpress is to setup. I'm feeding my blog http://www.edwardmovius.name with 19 feeds from my favorite blogs. My site seems a bit sluggish. Don't know if that has anything to do with this plugin, but it beats the heck out of copying and pasting posts.

Don't upgrade!

Version 2013.0502 of this plugin appears to be broken. It fails looking for /externals/myphp/myphp.class.php in /feedwordpress.php on line 105.

The old version was working beautifully.

Works great- quick setup!

Works great. Pulled my content from another blog in as soon as I added feed url, and clicked Update.

This is it!

I cannot vouch for stability under load etc .. since I just installed it.

But man! It's well thought out, totally flexible and very well executed :)

Powerful and flexible

This tool has easy to understand functions, settings and interfaces. All of the compatibility issues that I encountered had nothing to do with the plugin. Outstanding.

Works As Advertised!

Absolute fantastic plugin. Though you need to know how to set it up properly. Crappy hosts like GoDaddy need to be avoided for best results, as cpu resources can be heavy if your pulling many feeds. I recommend a cron job say every 20 minutes to call it up.

To add a permalink back to your feed source this plugin is suggested: http://projects.radgeek.com/add-attribution-feedwordpress/
