RSS Feed Importer Plugin – Frequently Asked Questions
Please see the user guide to learn more about this plugin
What is RSS? Why should I use it?
RSS is an acronym for Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication.
More importantly RSS “translates” multiple types of content (such as blogs, weather reports, newscasts) into a standardized, easy to read format. You can then fetch and display that content into WordPress.
With the RSS Feed Importer plugin, in particular, you are able to create a new post for each feed item. For example, every time a blog of choice publishes a post, your site will publish one as well based on that content.

How do I display imported feed items?
You can also control the title, author name, and the length of the content taken from the original imported post.
The featured image is also imported.
Can I import a feed from YouTube?
Note that you will be linking to the original source, and not downloading any content.
Learn more in this guide.
Some RSS feeds only give a short excerpt. Is there a way to change that?
You can bypass the feed and fetch content directly from the page by using the RSS Content Importer Addon.
Additionally, you can control the length of the content published on your post by combining content coming from the imported post content or by adding your own text.
The imported post content is parsed into fragments which you can later use while building the template used for the post which will be shown on your site. That also includes the ability to include additional content in the excerpt field.
Is there a limit to the number of feed sources I can use?
For each feed source you can define keyword filters as well as a unique content template so syndicated posts will match the original post structure.
Can I store imported feed items as posts?
You choose if the new item will be a post, page or even a custom post type.
Also, you can structure the template of the imported content to be displayed the way you prefer on your site.
Can you change where the RSS newsfeed posts appear on the site?
If the RSS feed is protected by password, can you read it?
