2. Define all related feed categories you are going to use for the RSS import.

3. In each category define the feed URL and the feed refresh interval.

4. Add keywords (positive or negative) for each feed so that RSS import will only aggregate content matching specific keywords.

5. Add tags by defining keywords to display a tag near each feed item based on its content.

6. Place the list shortcode on any page or post using shortcode.

7. Choose to display a single category of curated aggregate RSS feed content in a sidebar widget.

8. Once your curated RSS list is displayed, users may filter feed content by tag, category or free text filtering.

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 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.
