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

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