Best solution with add-on
By ,

WP RSS Aggregator is really a great solution to use RSS feeds. But we have to admit that Excerpts & Thumbnails add-on is missing. :)

Great support too!

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.

Great plugin, powerful, easy, and well supported.

I have 80 RSS feed URLs. Different ones go into different sections/pages of my site. The admin text editor button makes this a breeze when dealing with so many feed sources - especially for multiple feeds on one page.

Import multiple feed URLs - super simple, no template hassles.

Pagination!!!!! YES.
I am supprised that pagination is not in most RSS feed plugins.
Big thanks for that alone.

No conflicts with other plugins, even other RSS feed ones.
I have and use a zillion various plugins.

Bummer: Honestly I cannot afford the add ons - I am a voluteer and foot the bill for everything site related, hosting etc. I usually just donate to devs. So I use this plugin for displaying multiple feeds as a list. There are no other features than that, even basic ones like content or images, for free. Especially prohibitive to buy because Add Ons are not one time purchases I believe. Disappointing.

A lot of plugin for simple lists.
Still given the quantitites that I work with it is very useful. I have groups of feeds that this is adequate for. I use other plugins for more features - images and excerpts, for others.

A well developed and supported WP plugin is a treasure. Thank you for your hard work.

Cheers!

Great support, nice plugin
By , for WP 4.3

Feed to post is a nice plugin. The team is profesional

Worked quite well
By , for WP 4.2.3

I've just downloaded the plugin and added some feeds and it posted them as full posts. Since it's code is open you can look inside and adjust things to work at your will.

Doesn't work as expected
By , for WP 4.2.2

Didn't work consistently for us. Seems to be a well made and maintained plugin, support was good - just didn't do what we wanted.

Thank you

Updated Review

I originally had some problems with support and was getting the run around. My problems were not being solved so I left a negative review that I am updating now.

For what this plugin does, it's the best tool for the job.

Good plugin

Very useful tools
By , for WP 4.0

I use this plugin extensively on my site, (along with their Feed-to-Post add-and full-text RSS-feeds-service add-on), and it all works very well. I've only had one issue, and that was things broke when they rolled out their last update a week or so ago, and it took awhile for them to get it sorted for me. But they were professional and persistent and eventually things got back to where they needed to be. They also noted that the problems were their fault and apologized for the difficulties -- that's refreshing to hear someone take responsibility for problems and not tap dance about it.
