    Is this plugin more aggregator oriented or content curation oriented? I mean, once I added several sources, am I able to read then choose the articles I want to relay on my site?

      Any Genesis theme would be a good start I think: http://goo.gl/oXc2BJ

    Is it possible to get approved for Google Adsense with an aggregator site? I know Adsense generally only allows ads to be placed on pages with original content. If not, what would be an alternative method of placing ads on an aggregator site?

    Hi Mark,

    When using WP aggregator does it not affect SEO? I read on a very popular site that duplicate content is not very good for SEO and ranking and thus not SEO best practice.

    Secondly, in reference to the above – if ChiefSpinner is used does it change the content to original and unique content – thus no duplicate can be found apart from the post on my site?

    The above then also helps with adsense and google seeing it as original content not true?

    Every bloggers knows how important it is to be backing up a blog especially one whose blog has been hacked before like myself.
    Backing up through phpmyadmin is also one of the best and simple means of doing it and that’s exactly the way i usually back up mine.

    Hi Mark,
    I was wondering what setting it is that causes the headline for each article to link directly to it’s page of origin.
    The way it’s working on my page, the headline for each article links to the identical (but shortened) article on my site. Then the user has to click on Continue Reading to get to the page of origin.
    I don’t actually want to duplicate the content on my page — just link directly to the site of origin.

    I use WP RSS Aggregator with Baskerville 2. I notice that a few of the posts don’t have the “continue reading” at the end of the page. First, have you experienced this with WP News Desk and what was your remedy?

    The page is not live yet. I did send a picture to the customer support but not sure if they understood. Would I have to insert the code manually if the continue reading is not working for a post? I did send a picture. Will send another one.

    I have a post here that the “Continue Reading” didn’t show up and there were more than 20 words. Here is the article being imported- https://www.tableau.com/about/blog/2019/12/introducing-learning-paths-sharpen-your-skills-new-role-based-learning, it is more than 20 words. So this might be a WP RSS Aggregator issue. As you used the Baskerville theme in WP News Desk, I just wanted to see if you dealt with this problem and how you solved it. Anyway, I will gather some insight from Anders Noren.

    I started a news aggregation site with this similar setup (wp rss aggregator with feed to post) but I’m experiencing a bit of an issue with disk space management since using the featured image requires those files to be saved locally.

    Was this ever an issue on WP News desk? I’m currently pulling from 30 sources and around 100 posts a day. The problem is that 1000 posts is taking up 1GB from the featured images! (and that’s with image compression tools). This is quickly going to fill up my available disk space (20GB).

    Perhaps I’m just a fool for choosing hosting with limited disk space, but I also didn’t originally intend to build the site I’m currently working on. Just curious if this is something you ran into as well and if so, how it was managed.
    Thank you!

    Hello, I have a question if you occurred a similar problem with your WP New Desk Site.

    We have a Page with all the same codes and installed Plugins as you. Everything was fine until we found out that an customer was reading an external article on our website, which shouldn’t be happening. Also on this viewing article are other imported articles which should be linking outside our website to the original source, but are linked to our website.

    We also tried this code: https://kb.wprssaggregator.com/article/295-f2p-filter-make-post-titles-link-directly-to-the-original-article (paragraph: “In some cases, the post title links might not link externally when on the singular post view. If this is the case, apply the additional filter below.”). Which helped with the other articles inside the viewing article, but this makes another problem. The linked articles where not the same links as the title and Website.

    I hope you can help us out.
