The no.1 RSS feed importer for WordPress. Premium add-ons available for more functionality.
This plugin was exactly what i wanted and even more. ive purchased all the add ons and now i have hundreds of unique articles keeping my visitors interested updating every 2 hours. Absolutely perfect!
I've tried most of the RSS importer plugins but this one is by far the best. Even more impressive is their Customer Support team (shoutout to Mark!) - they are very quick to respond and will take the time to work through difficult issues.
I'm using the feed to post bundle and it's worked great for me. I also used one of the filters on the plugins website that wasn't working the way i needed on my site and one of the coders, Anton, fixed me up and all is good now :). I was contacted within hours of emailing my problem.
Highly recommended plugin with great support.
I have UPDATED this original post and hence the 5-star rating. But I will leave this original post on case someone has similar problems
On May 19 I rushed to purchase the Full Text RSS bundle (with Feed to Post and keyword filtering) for some $140 (a king's ransom considering my site is new and a hobby). I use bbPress for forum on the latest WP edition. Iam also using Magazine Premium theme by bavotasan.com. Within a few minutes of completing setup of RSS aggregator I noticed that it was not working as promised. To keep things simple in the beginning I set the "post type" to Forum. The plugin imported all the feed items (some 150 of them!!) unto one single page - no pagination and all in full text. No way to display only the titles of items, and then have them clickable to the full text. I immediately submitted a support ticket. The various responses from Chirag and Mark from RSS Aggregator essentially blamed the problem on bbPress. I asked if there is another forum plugin that the RSS aggregator works well with but my question has not been answered. I then decided to try the page "post type" as defined in the documentation. I created a new page and inserted the shortcode [wp-rss-aggregator source="1728"] to display feed items from source ID 1728 on the page. I had also set the "post type" for ID 1728 to "page". 72 hours later the page continues to say "no feed items found" [NOTE: I have even added feed sources from NBA.com]. I contacted Chirag ad Mark and specifically asked why the page post type is not working. They have mysteriously refused to answer me despite asking over and over. This plugin has promise but there are some things to work out. bbPress is a popular WP add-on and if your plugin does not work well with it there is a problem. Moreover, the page post type is not dependent on theme, and yet it still does not import. It has been four days now and I have made a complaint with the very first hour of purchase. At this point i demand refund of my money or I will escalate to PayPal.
This is an extremely useful plugin, well put together, and as simple as a complex tool can be. Support is absolutely top notch, I had multiple tickets open, and they were extremely helpful with all of my issues, from code related problems to simpler things. Well worth the money. Thank you Mark and Chirag!
I tried some plugins for a curator per RSS. This is the best for me. A reported issue was fixed very soon. So I can say: Good work!
I used it, OH ! very good
I'm using the plugin to curate content on various websites and it works perfectly. Obviously the best RSS & Curation plugin at the moment. The support is also very quick and friendly. Keep up the good job!
After testing around 8 weeks i must say: A really great Plugin!
A feature request:
If you can make it possible to use more than one keyword in 'Keyword Filtering' it would be more than outstanding!
Urgently expected... :))
I haven't used many plug-ins like WP RSS Aggregator (EventOn is the only other one that springs to mind): technically it works, 'out of the box' and with attentive, knowledgeable customer support.
It's easy to set-up in its default state- but when you have it installed you can customise it extensively. I saw a reviewer mentioning it can be complex, but I thinkonly as complex as you need it to be.
Feed refresh times are customisable, key-word filtering works well and the custom mapping feature is superb - that third feature is complex initially to work with, but the power it gives you to create posts exactly as you want them to look is wonderful.
The add-ons are worthwhile - particularly Feed To Post, which enables you to automate updates to your site, retaining traffic rather than sending it straight back out to the RSS source field.
Overall, it's one of the best two plug-ins I've ever used.
