    Autoblog at WPMU.org is also a good one, like FeedWordPress but a simpler interface for setting up feeds.

    I modified it to also support updating posts if that post in the feed gets updated, as well as pull in custom menus built on the site the feed comes from.

    Thanks, Jean. Is there a way to get a download of version 1? The latest version isn’t working for me in WP 3.5, though version 1 is on another blog, same themes/plugins, settings, etc.

    I appreciate you.

    Hi Jean,
    Thanks for developing this. I have an OPML file with about 500 feeds. Will your plugin be able to process 500 feeds (and more in the future)?

    Another awesome article Jean! I look forward to testing out your Wp-RSS-Aggregator plugin on some of my test sites! I am very interested in analyzing the php files of your plugin too, as I am trying to learn as much about this type of coding as possible. I still haven’t gotten my Sublime Text 2 to efficiently sit in my WordPress workflow, so I am still using DreamWeaver because it seems like it requires less steps to update via ftp. Anyways, could you maybe write an article on the the most awesome music aggregator on the Interwebz, Hypem.com? I’ve been inspecting some of their code because I am trying to figure out how they embed their tracks into the music player from the rss feeds of music blogs. They somehow link to the embedded audio, which I think would be optimal as to not overload their own servers, right? I will be sure to let you know once I’ve used your plugin, and if I run into any problems, on my new project, AllMusicBlogs.com.

    May the force be with you!

    Is it possible to make each of these boxes an incoming RSS feed?

    Too few to compare really. I don’t even mention the premium and professional solution, but the list too short even for freeware ones. For example: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/cybersyn/

    I love the wp rss aggregator plugin. I wish there was a way to it to add multiple posts with seperate feeds for different content or categories.

    I noticed that you didn’t include WP RSS Multi-Importer, which i just set up on my site yesterday. Appears to work ok, with lots of options. However, I did notice however that my site has slowed down a bit. I guess to generating the feeds? Thinking about switching to your plugin. Questions: (1) Can I display/format the feeds differently on various pages of my site? (2) Can I set default images for different categories of feeds that appear if the post doesn’t generate a thumbnail? (3) any tips/tricks to stop the site from slowing down with RSS feed plugins?

    Btw – thanks for the info!

    Hi all. The service I like best for RSS feeds is here: http://itde.vccs.edu/rss2js/build.php. Pretty basic, easy-to-use, and looks good. They offer some formatting options to that you can use to display a limited number of items, characters, etc. I’m using it on many pages of my real estate blog to automatically display new information about homes for sale.

    Hi Jean – I am hoping we have found what our client has been looking for 🙂 Using your plug in can we set up news feeds for specific keywords such as “steel prices”.

    Also where do the feeds come from, is it only from certain sites? Can we choose sites to pull news from? What are the sites the plug in uses?

    OK too many questions – I need to get back to our client so any feedback would be appreciated.

    WP RSS Aggregator Free version is completely not worth for aggregating purpose. and Pro version is costly and over priced.

    Better I should hire a freelancer for this. or I should try searching in Envanto marketplace.

      Pricing is always subjective Albert, but having spent a lot of time searching for this kind of plugin, I came to the conclusion that WP RSS Aggregator with the Feed to Post add-on is really the best option currently on the market. And paying less than $100 for a plugin that will be one of the main components of the site doesn’t sound like a bad deal to me. I’ve searched on Envato and didn’t find anything close to WP RSS Aggregator in terms of functionality. And what about hiring a freelancer? Seriously, have you got an idea how complex the import functionality is? I suggest you take a look at the files of this plugin, if you can find a freelancer who can build all that for less than $100 let me know, I’d want to hire him myself!

      The free version of WP RSS Aggregator works perfectly for those who just want to have some news from other sites displaying on their site, it’s not intended for heavy duty aggregation and that’s fine.

      Anyway, just thought I’d chime in with my thoughts as a satisfied customer. Good luck!

    I was relieve to finally find that works and does everything that I need it to do… but… unfortunately, I am having an issue with it and needed to use a second RSS aggregator, which I hate. Can your plugin support more than one plugin widget on a page? For example, I have one for News in the footer and wanted another one for Latest Shows in the sidebar on a couple of pages. On those couple of pages, the one in the sidebar starts scrolling ok but then scrolls uncontrollably and the one in the footer shows the same feeds as the one in the sidebar even though the widget settings are set differently. I am really hoping there is a fix to this. I’d like to use a couple or more separate RSS widgets throughout my site and so far your plugin seems to do more than the others.

    I’m using this plugin together with Excerpts&Thumbnails, Keyword Filtering and Categories extensions and it works great and is easy to use. I especially like the keyword filtering so that you can really display only the feed content (for each feed source) that is of interest to you. Together with exceptionally awesome support (thanks Jean!), this is a five star plugin!

    Hi i installed this plugin a week ago, everything seems really great. I love its usability but on the other hand i find only one flow it throws errors when validating from a semantic point of view, it is not that important itself but since i am a perfection freak i thought of mentioning it. It is a minor bug but i thought i should let you know.

    Jean – I am looking to replicate something like http://www.newsnow.co.uk/h/Business+&+Finance/Banking/Capital+Ratios. What I like about it: flags for countries, redirected links, broken up by date, and source mentioned.

    Do you know any WP plugin that can do this?

    Great Post. Honestly I am new to wordpress and suddenly I need this plugin. Just wonder how to sort the feed not by date but by specific content inside it. For instance the feed include word “I am the first” then it will be shown as the 1st position. Thanks for any input.

    Can you confirm that this plugin and the advanced bundle features are compatible with WP 4.2.2 and 4.3 (releasing shortly)? I’m starting a new site & business and development cost is an issue. Is there a way to trial this without committing immediately to initial and recurring costs?

    HI Looks like a great plugin and just what I need to buy —

    My needs are to create a source where I can aggregate feeds together and review them so I can pick and choose what to curate on a very narrow niche topic based on a group of keywords.

    Basically a draft gatherer… then I pick and write ro curate or link on the main site.

    I want to create a feeder or curatorial source site that gathers and finds for me. keeps everything as draft status.

    I should be able to do that here, right?

    Thank you Aaron Schwartz for being murdered for developing great RSS technology and the past 10 years while they try to cover it up and hide it from us so we cannot share information and organize.. I have sought a good plugin that continues the fight without shortsighted greedy intentions and have found none except for the rss multiple importer by Allen Weiss, he stopped work on it though, think someone hired him.. I wish there were another open source developer as skilled and Nobel as him.. the world needs this technology more than you need 50 bucks a month..

    CyberSyn is the only plugin which extracts full text articles from shortened RSS feeds right out of the box. No 3rd-party services or hidden fees.
