I highly recommend this plugin. Functionality is very strong. Not buggy at all. Very sturdy and reliable operation. The add ons / upgrades are a definite must. The support is top notch - they have literally answered like 10 emails from me in just a span of days. Excellent all around. Thank you team.

I'm currently running WP RSS Aggregato wit no add ons on [ link redacted, please do not post links in reviews ]

The plugin was easy to setup and make it work, however I had issues on my side.

I had a personal easy correspondence e-mail to e-mail with thier customer care people, and afetr a few weeks (I was so slow) I finaly got everything under control.

They were nice, easy to deal with.

I give 5 star rating for thier customer care

Excellent Plugin for RSS
By , for WP 4.5.3

WP RSS Aggregator is a great tool to work with. You can set up a whole site or add a dedicated section for imported news, I found it super easy to set up.

They also have some great add-ons, and their support team always done their best to help me out when I needed it. Thank guys!

Worst customer service of any app ever!!!
By , for WP 4.5.3

I've had a issue with incorrect email address being registered for 3 weeks now and cannot access our account. Mark has been completely ineffective in helping us out. I literally have given up on these guys. A simple problem can't be fixed by them.

If you never have a problem with this app you will be okay. The second you need help it's complete deadsville.

Support your product guys. I begged you for help and told you I can't wait any longer. Don't be surprised for the 1 star. YOU brought it on yourself. I'm a customer, treat me accordingly.

Best on the market *but* only with premium add-ons
By , for WP 4.4.3

I'm giving it 4 for several reasons. The first one is that the basic functionality is just too much trimmed down. I would definitely expect that Excerpts & Thumbnails functionality is part of free plugin, maybe even feed to post since this is what the competition is offering as standard. On the other side, I have been looking around and testing various free plugins, but they were poorly coded, usually didn't do what I've expected and even then the results were poor. Then I have looked on themeforest.net and other plugin sites but again I was disappointed since I really needed full text to post functionlity, and none of the demos available has convinced me with the live demos, some of them were already so old that were unsupported with my WP version. So took a deep breath and decided to go with this one + add-on bundle. The experience was overall great. The whole package has so many configurable options that I needed some time to get through them all. Most of them are not needed in my current setup, but it is good to have them around. The full text feed to post works flawlessly although that should not be a question for premium add-on. I am very satisfied with support, especially on recent issue with licenses I had, which turned out to be a bug, fixed in basic plugin version 4.9 just days after I have reported the issue. However the pricing for premium add-ons is too expensive, especially when compared to the prices on the market, themeforest for example, where a stunning & powerful theme, like Avada, costs only $59 including support for example, and RSS plugins can be purchased in range of $10-20 although providing only the basic functionality, with little configurable options. But none could handle full text (at least at the time I didn't find any), none has so many options and versatility and with excellent support, this is the best plugin on the market, providing that add-on bundles are purchased. I am giving it 4 because the rating is for the base plugin, not the bundle, which definitely deserves 5. The basic functionality should really be extended, at least to thumbnails & excerpts, and the pricing is simply too high, if you look at the market. So if you are a professional, running large site which needs a versatile and powerful feed management, or you need it for your business, then definitely go for it as it is worth the investment. However if you're only to add some bit of a rich content to your website, or fancy news ticker to your hobby blog or personal blog, then you'd better look elsewhere. This is a professional suite and the pricing is in accordance.

Good piece of software but...
By ,

This is a good piece of software but...

Feed to Post addon; There appear to be problems with feeds. It works really good when the number of feed sources was low (say around 6 or so). However, once you get into some real news aggregating, 30 or 40 or more feed sources, this software begins to struggle. It loses tracks occasionally on a feed source here or there and pops up little error icons (red triangles or yield signs) forcing you to manually retrieve posts. It doesn't like simultaneously fetching posts from multiple feeds. When you get lots and lots of feeds you will need to stagger your updates so that they all trigger a few minuets apart from each other or else risk a feed or two or more not working occasionally.

It begins to lose track of when to update (check the) feed and the update information on some of the feeds makes no sense (such as late update: never, next update: never, etc)... even though the feed is scheduled and turned on.

Full Text plugin is okay, but not great. Some feeds it performs well with, others it can't seem to pull any article text except adverts off the pages. Other feeds it still only pulls the blurbs (like one paragraph) and ignores the rest of the article altogether. One great example is if you are trying to pull the feed from infowars.com, it will only get about 50% of the articles correct. The remainder will be gibberish text from adverts.

Keywords plugin is fine, except, instead of having all the keywords on a single line inside an edit text field, can we get a text file(s)? Kind of a pain in the butt to place lots and lots of exclusion keywords into a edit text field and it really limits you. For serious keyword filtering we really need the ability of using keyword text files. I have some feeds that feed topics I don't want to capture and post, so I need a ton of exclusion keywords.... life would be so much better if I could simply edit a text file.

So, in all it is decent software. It can pull articles fairly fast from a good feed. It has trouble a lot of the time with pulling graphics (images), especially under full text. There is lots of room for improvement here. So for now I give it three stars. One star definitely missing for the feeds to post addon losing control of the cron jobs and update information.
