Feed to post is a nice plugin. The team is profesional
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.
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.
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.
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.
This was a quick-to-install plugin that did exactly what I needed it to do. I'm going to have to mess around with it a little bit more because I want to use the lightbox feature (which is an awesome option), but it was a few clicks and done! :)
I evaluated the free WP RSS Aggregator plugin and the paid extension, [ link redacted, please do not post links in reviews ]. Using both, I was able to import new posts with a custom post from my feed. I was able to assign terms in a custom taxonomy and a tag to the newly created posts.
Regrettably, the RSS feed I need to import does not validate, and it fails in such a way as to make the Feed to Post extension fail to import new items in the feed. Even though the problem was with my feed and not the plugin, I still got great response and service from the developers. Because my feed was so badly malformed as to not really qualify as an RSS feed, I ended up using a different plugin to import posts. Still, I think this plugin does handle valid RSS feeds perfectly well. And the support I got was great.
I recommend validating the RSS feeds you want to import prior to attempting to use this plugin to import them, and definitely prior purchasing any of the extensions. But if you have a valid feed, I'm confident this plugin will import it for you, and I believe you'll get great support should you need it.
I just installed this plugin and purchased the feed to post as well as categories. I found out after install that I don't need categories with feed to post. This was my oversight and I don't blame the author for this.
The Plugin was very easy to install and get working. It does what it says it will.
The only issue I have is that under "Feed to Post - Taxonomies" I just get a "please wait..." So this part of the feed to post plugin doesn't work for me. It may be something i missed as I am brand new to WordPress.
I sent an email to the author for support and have not heard back. It is the weekend, so this is understandable. I have no doubt the author will provide support and this part will work as advertised. Once it does, this will have met all my needs.
In general I highly recommend this plugin.
The most recent update seemed to take away from functionality that I was making use of before. In one area of my site, I was displaying 6 items. In another, I was displaying 30 (using the parameter
feed_limit=30), but that is no longer working.
Hoping that's just a kink that needs to be worked out following the latest update! Like I said, otherwise, this is perfect and is a great aggregator of RSS feeds.
