Glad for the Plugin
By , for WP 3.9.1

I have only donated $5 about 4 years ago to this plugin and have made alot more than that from my blogs using Feedwordpress. I see alot of negative comments but how many of these people have helped with one minute of their time. They have plenty of time to complain though. When this plugin was made, this was the ONLY free plugin if it's kind. There was something similar but you had to pay $19/month for ONE plugin. And I know of no other since. So instead of complaining, why doesn't everyone support this developer and help him with the updates to keep this awesome plugin alive and well! I'm now embarassed for donating so little and will be sending more $$ now.

Made it easy
By , for WP 3.9

Made it quite easy to move posts from another CMS through the old site's RSS feed.
Coupled with http://wordpress.org/plugins/import-external-images/, it made for an easy operation.

One obstacle that I ran into was missing imported posts.
Simply boosted the execution time in my php.ini and was all set.
I just wish that I had some sort of notification that it wasn't importing everything (a default "importing post xx of yy counter would be great).
I know there's an option in the debug settings.. Unfortunately, turning on debugging yielded so many rows of warnings that most of the admin main menu was shifted off-screen.

Downloads feeds but breaks archives
By , for WP 3.8.1

Very useful plugin for bringing in a lot of sources, but it spits out tons of warnings, and using the "optimize IN query" setting breaks searches and archives. It took me several hours to pinpoint the issue to this.

Someone really needs to go through and clean this code up.

Best Syndication

is my best tool for my web sites

new release suggestions
By , for WP 3.5

the plugin is very very good

i think that we need a new release my suggestions for it is :

1-the plugin worked good with php 5.3 but it deprecated now the plugin have a lot of errors with php 5.4 so we need to get it work with 5.4

2- when i use the plugin to capture the images & insert it as post thumbnail the plugin reinsert the same image in the content in <img> tag so we need to capture the image & insert it as post thumb without inserting it in the content again

3- alot of scheduled posts with no reasons, the plugin syndicated all posts in the feeds but some of the posts not published marked as scheduled for no reason we need to publish all posts

4- capturing images is the last step after syndicate all posts when i update via cronjob or manuel updates the plugin first considering the posts then insert all of it the "if have time before timeout capuring all images, i think that we need to consider one item then insert it then capture the images of it, then go to the next posts & do the same

i hope that this suggestion help thanks for the perfect plugin

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.
