FAQs

Q: How do I install the free core version of WP RSS Aggregator?

A: Click on the “Go to Download” button on the right and follow the instructions presented there.

 

Q: Is there any limit on the number of sources I can add?

A: There is no limit in place for the number of feed sources. Having many (50+) feed sources should not present any problems in itself. However, pulling in items 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. Check out our dedicated page for hosting recommendations.

 

Q: How do I display the imported feed items?

A: Use our shortcode on any page or post on your WordPress site. It will automatically display all imported feed items from all sources, but you can use parameters to limit that display to certain sources.

 

Q: Can I display the imported feed items as Posts in my website’s blog or some other dedicated section?

A: Yes, you can, with the Feed to Post premium add-on. You will not only be able to store items as posts but as any custom post type. You can also set the author, set tags and categories, import images into the gallery or set featured images, import embedded videos and much more.

 

Q: Will this plugin slow down my WordPress site?

A: The impact of our plugin on the performance of your website depends on your usage of the plugin, and on the resources that are available on your server. Some of our customers have hundreds of feed sources importing thousands of items without a significant decrease in speed. Generally, the amount of resources consumed is directly proportional to the number of feed sources you have active, the number of feed items being imported, and the number of items already imported; all that multiplied by the frequency of imports.

As a preventative measure, if you are planning to do a lot of importing, we recommend a hosting plan with at least 128M of memory available for PHP. Also, please bear in mind that in order to utilise available memory resources, the WordPress memory limit has to be adjusted accordingly.

We also provide further recommendations here.

 

Q: How will importing existing posts affect the SEO for the source site and original author?

A: Content that is present on more than just the original source, i.e. “duplicate” content, can be an issue sometimes. A special way exists to notify search engines what the original source of the content is, and that is through something called a canonical link.

The Feed to Post add-on provides a Canonical Link setting that allows you to easily specify the canonical link for imported posts, which will point back to the original resource.

As for the author of the posts, the Feed to Post add-on also allows you to set the author of the imported posts to be any existing author, or even automatically create authors in your system based on relevant data in the feed – if provided.

 

Q: I’m not sure which add-on or bundle is right for me. Can you help me out?

A: Sure! We wrote a post just for you. Read about which add-ons you should buy as we explain the different types of usage so you’ll know what to expect when purchasing. If you need any further help you can contact our support team or try out our Simple Feeds Bundle demo and Advanced Feeds Bundle demo.
