This add-on is part of both the Advanced Feeds Bundle and the Simple Feeds Bundle. Make your investment worthwhile by opting for a bundle and getting more bang for your buck!

The Keyword Filtering add-on gives you the ability to control, import and store only feed items or posts that contain specific keywords in either the title or their content, or specific categories and/or tags (from within the RSS feeds).

It works well with all of our other add-ons as well as with the core plugin alone. It is the ideal tool to limit the content being imported to what your visitors really want to see.

 

What do I get?

Filter by keyword

Sometimes there are certain keywords which tell you whether a piece of content fits into your site or not. Take the topic of sport, for example, adding the keyword “Football” will import all content that includes that word in its title and/or content (within the RSS feed).

You can add as many phrases as you want to each filter, and you can have as many filters as you need. The filtering options for this include:

  • Contains all of the words.
  • Contains any of the words.
  • Contains none of the words.

All of the above options can be applied to either the title only, the content only, or both.

 

Filter by phrase

Other times, there might be entire phrases which tell you whether a piece of content fits into your site or not. Take the topic of film, for example, adding the phrase “The Last Jedi” will import all content that includes that phrase in its title and/or content (within the RSS feed).

You can add as many phrases as you want to each filter, and you can have as many filters as you need. The filtering options for this include:

  • Contains all of the phrases.
  • Contains any of the phrases.
  • Contains none of the phrases.

All of the above options can be applied to either the title only, the content only, or both.

 

Filter by tag

Other times, there might be entire phrases which tell you whether a piece of content fits into your site or not. Take the topic of film, for example, adding the phrase “The Last Jedi” will import all content that includes that phrase in its title and/or content (within the RSS feed).

You can add as many phrases as you want to each filter, and you can have as many filters as you need. The filtering options for this include:

  • Contains any of these tags.
  • Contains none of these tags.

 

Filtering via the shortcode

Through the framework developed around our shortcode, you can now filter feed items directly through the shortcode. This allows you to display feed items from as many sources as you want, as long as they contain a specific keyword or phrase.

Note that this option only works when using the shortcode display, not with the Feed to Post add-on, and the shortcode can only accept one keyword parameter per shortcode.

 

All of the above filters can be applied to each individual feed source separately, or in general, to all feed sources, site-wide.

 

 

Filtering Logic

Click here to learn more details about the filtering logic applied, or click here for different scenarios of filters working together.

A detailed example:

If you have a website in which all you want to import are stories that mention Thailand in the title or content, then enter “Thailand” into the ‘All of these words’ textbox and ensure the checkboxes for Feed Title and Feed Content are checked in the ‘Apply the above filtering methods on’ section.

If you wanted to import stories about Thailand in general, you could follow the same procedure as above. However, you could instead leave the ‘All of these words’ textbox empty and instead use the second ‘Any of these words’ textbox. In there, you could write “Thailand, Thai, Chiang Mai”. That would import stories that had any of those words in the title/content rather than importing only stories that had “Thailand”. Note that if you wrote those three words in the first textbox, it would only import stories that mentioned ALL of those words in the post, it wouldn’t import something that only talked about Thailand and never mentioned Chiang Mai.

Additionally, if you wanted to filter out stories about Thai Airways, you could add “airways” to the ‘None of these words’ textbox. That would mean that even if a post mentioned Thailand or Chiang Mai, if it said “airways” in it, the story wouldn’t be imported.

Requirements

  • WP RSS Aggregator Core Plugin
  • WordPress 4.0 or higher

Docs & FAQs

Q: Can this add-on filter through content that is not provided within the feed source’s RSS feed?

A: No, Keyword Filtering can only filter by what it can see within the RSS feed being used. The only way it can filter through the full content of an imported post is when the source’s RSS feed, or the one generated by our Full Text RSS Feeds add-on, contains the entire content just like the original source.

 

Q: Can I use this add-on with the free core plugin only?

A: Yes, Keyword Filtering can work with just the free core plugin, filtering through the feed item titles.

 

Q: I need a license for more than 20 sites, can you help me out?

A: We sure can! Although we only show “up to twenty sites” on our website, we have larger license packages available upon request and at much bigger discounts. The currently available packages are of 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000 and 2000 site licenses. Contact us today for more information.
