Import the whole content of an item to a post, including text and images, regardless of what is found on the RSS feed

RSS Content Importer Add-on for WordPress Description

Do you get frustrated after importing RSS feeds and only seeing partial content, such as trimmed excerpts? Feeds may be misconfigured and offer limited content.

Use this add-on and extract the full content directly from the page, effectively bypassing the RSS feed.

The RSS Content Importer add-on boosts the CM RSS Importer plugin, which imports only content from the feed.

Import Full Content

Create posts and pages with full content based on RSS feeds.

You simply specify where the content is located and the plugin will generate a WordPress post for each new item.
