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.

Cool But

Like another user said after it pulls so many feeds it just stops working. If it wasn't for that I'd give it an easy 5 star.

Awesome plugin for fetching posts from other blog

Awesome plugin and easy to use, i just installed it and give it a link of other blog and fetch all posts in few seconds. Thanks to author

great when it works
By , for WP 3.5.2

This plugin is fantastic and flexible....when it works. I find it to be temperamental at times and sometimes feeds mysteriously stop working.

I've been using it for a while and often get errors that the feeds I'm syndicating aren't valid XML yet they validate against W3C standards.

Doesn't seem like the author is around much to fix problems many people are having.

Please fix php errors

My logs are getting flooded with errors, like the following, because of this plugin. Otherwise it's great! Please fix this error, so I can update my rating.

Non-static method FeedWordPress::diagnostic_on() should not be called statically

Perfect tool!

Thanks, RadGeek for this plugin and also for maintaining it all these years. Your response to users concern about th last update shows how dedicated you are to this even when most pays nothing for it.
We are grateful!

I like it!

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.

Latest release of FeedWordPress has a major bug
By , for WP 3.5

I am using the latest version of WordPress and FeedWordPress and I have it installed on 10 sites and the same thing is occuring across the board:

1) Only pulls in 10 posts then stops updating feed
2) Displays no error message or useful info in the diagnostics so you can troubleshoot.

Bummer.

When it works, it's great!

When this plugin works, it is perfect! Unfortunately, it randomly gives an error ("Feed error: The data could not be converted to UTF-8. You MUST have either the iconv or mbstring extension installed. Upgrading to PHP 5.x (which includes iconv) is highly recommended.") The only way I've found to reliably fix this is to change the source feed to only giving partial feeds, instead of the entire content.
