SEO benefits from importing RSS feeds

  • Generate lots of new backlinks to your site.
  • Enhance your online presence and gain more trust.
  • And therefore, you can help boost your SEO! Learn more from WP Mayor.

Premium add-ons for additional functionality

WP RSS Aggregator can be extended through a set of premium add-ons that are also available as part of our discounted pricing plans.

  • Full Text RSS Feeds takes Feed to Post to the next level by connecting it to our premium full text service. This helps bring in content from sources that don’t provide it in their RSS feeds.
  • Keyword Filtering enables you to filter the content imported from any source based on keywords, phrases and/or tags.

WP RSS Aggregator Feeds

Instal·lació

How to install and set up the WP RSS Aggregator plugin:

Method 1:

  1. Go to the Plugins page in your WordPress site’s dashboard.
  2. Click the “Add New” button.
  3. Search for “WP RSS Aggregator”.
  4. When found, click on the “Install” button, then hit the “Activate” button once it has installed.
  5. Go to the RSS Aggregator menu item, then set up your feed sources, templates and general settings.

Method 2:

  1. Click on the “Download” button above.
  2. Upload the wp-rss-aggregator.zip file to your site’s /wp-content/plugins/ directory via FTP.
  3. Activate the WP RSS Aggregator plugin from the ‘Plugins’ section in your dashboard.
  4. Go to the RSS Aggregator menu item, then set up your feed sources, templates and general settings.

DISPLAYING THE FEED ITEMS

Use the WP RSS Aggregator block or shortcode on any page or post to display the imported items.

Shortcode: [wp-rss-aggregator]

Each block or shortcode can use any template and it can also have its own parameters, such as selecting which sources to display items from, the maximum number of items to display, whether to use pagination, which page to show, and more.

Shortcode example with parameters: [wp-rss-aggregator source="123" limit="5"]

It is advisable to use the ‘HTML’ view of the editor when inserting shortcodes with parameters.

USAGE WITHIN THEME FILES

Here are two examples of a function call from within a theme’s files:

<?php
wprss_display_feed_items( $args = array(
    'limit' => '8',
    'source' => '5,9'
    ));
?>

OR

<?php do_shortcode('[wp-rss-aggregator]'); ?>

PMF

What feed sources can I import items from?

Any source with a valid RSS or XML feed can have its feed items imported by WP RSS Aggregator. Most sites provide RSS feeds right out the box as shown here. If you can’t find an RSS feed, you may try to create one using our free service.

How do I display the imported feed items?

Use the template of your choice to display imported items anywhere across your site. To show the items, you can use either one (or a combination) of the options below.

  • Option 1: Use our shortcode in your posts and pages: [wp-rss-aggregator]
  • Option 2: Use our block in the Gutenberg editor (WP 5.0 and later)
  • Option 3: Call the function directly within a theme: <?php wprss_display_feed_items(); ?>
Is there a limit on the number of feed sources I can set up?

No, there is no limit for the number of feed sources to import items from. Having many (50+) feed sources should not present any problems in itself. However, pulling in posts from many sites is bound to put your server under some stress, so you might want to consider using a hosting solution that goes beyond your typical shared host and staggering the feed imports.

Check out our dedicated page on WordPress hosting recommendations (includes some affiliate links).

Does WP RSS Aggregator work using JSON as the source?

No, our plugin does not currently import from JSON, it only imports from RSS and Atom structured XML.

Why do I get “No feed items found” when I insert the shortcode on a page or post?
  1. Try adding a few more feed sources and make sure they are valid by using the RSS Feed Validator.

  2. Make sure that feed items have been imported by visiting the Feed Items page.

  3. Try out the solutions listed in our Feed Items Not Importing knowledge base section.

  4. It’s important to make sure your WordPress cron system is working well. If not, the feeds cannot be imported. If in doubt, you can install the WP Crontrol plugin to check for bad cron, or go to RSS Aggregator > Debugging and hit the red button to re-import all feed items.

If the problems persist, please contact our support team. If you’re using a premium add-on, please use the premium support channel.

Can I store imported feed items as posts?

Yes, you can do that using the Feed to Post premium add-on. You will not only be able to store items as posts, but as any post type. You can also set the author, set tags and categories, import images into the gallery or set featured images, and much more. These can then be displayed in your theme’s blog page, via a page builder, etc.

Some RSS feeds only give a short excerpt when using the add-ons. Any way around that?

Yes, along with the Feed to Post add-on we have another add-on called Full Text RSS Feeds that can get the full content of most feeds that only supply a short excerpt. The Full Text RSS Feeds add-on requires Feed to Post and a valid license key to function.

I’m not sure which premium add-ons are right for me. Can you help me out?

Sure! We built an add-on finder (guide) that will help determine what you need.

If you need any further help you can contact our support team.

Where can I find the documentation for the plugin?

We use WP RSS Aggregator including premium Feed to Post extension for importing posts from RSS podcasts. This plugin gives great flexibility and allows us to use dozens of regularly updating feed sources and have the content imported to our website automatically within just a few minutes. The most important thing is they have friendly and professional technicians in the support team. Any issues resolved promptly. Thank you very much for the great plugin and your top-notch service!

I'm surprised by all these reviews saying how great the support for WP RSS Aggregator is. We have a persistent 500 error when editing any of the feeds, and are about to abandon the plugin because WP Engine suspects this plugin is the culprit RE: memory issues. And this is after paying for the support. We've opened two different tickets for my client, provided logs, all the license information, and screenshots to help, with NO RESPONSE to either ticket. This is through their integrated ticketing system in the Dashboard. Next step is to charge back the cost of the plugin via our credit issuer because of lack of service.

I tried alternatives but this one seems to do what I needed - even displays images from Google news which was a must for me. Initially was worried about lack of responsiveness of the grid layout but a quick support message sorted that out. Very happy with product and support.

Just install and be happy! Works great and simple settings!
