RSS Post Importer vs RSS Aggregator Plugin

CreativeMinds is proud to present two of the best WordPress RSS feed plugins on the market: RSS Post Importer and RSS Aggregator. Both tools allow users to display RSS in WP, but with key differences.

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 of the original source for the full post content. Once a user clicks on the title, they will be redirected to the original post.

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 gives you complete control over content syndication while pulling feed content from a wide range of sources.

How to Curate RSS Content on your WordPress Site

  • Aggregate RSS Feeds – Build lists of curated RSS news sources or feeds. You can then display lists on any page of your WordPress website.
  • Build a Knowledge Base of RSS Syndicated Content – Create a comprehensive knowledge base of the most recent updates in your field.
  • Import Essential RSS Content – Import title and short description from the RSS feed.
  • Filter Imported Content by Keyword – Filter imported feeds based on keywords (blacklist or whitelist), so you only aggregate the items you want.
  • RSS Content Attributes and Image – Display RSS excerpts and thumbnails together with the title, date and source in your feed item display.
  • Tooltip Support – Show tooltips including full content excerpts when hovering over an item.
  • Sidebar Widget – Add a widget to any section of your WordPress site to display your imported feed items.
