    What is the Difference Between the WP RSS Post Importer and the WP RSS Aggregator Plugins?

    ​​The CM WP RSS Aggregator plugin can read RSS feeds from external sites but will only keep the title and initial description of the external post while linking to the external URL for the full post content. Once a user clicks on the title, they will be redirected to the original post. The RSS Aggregator excels at arranging the RSS content based on categories and subcategories

    ​The CM WP RSS Post Importer plugin imports the actual post content to your site while letting you define the exact template of the content. This offers a great tool for content syndication.
