A bundle to improve your shortcode display. Valued at $70, you will be saving at least $20 over buying the add-ons separately. It gets even better if you purchase a 5 or 20 site license. We have even larger license packages available upon request.

The Simple Feeds Bundle provides the ideal combination of add-ons for displaying feed item listings via the WP RSS Aggregator shortcode. With this bundle you can create a simple, yet attractive feed item display. Be it for job listing, news items, or sharing the latest travel blog posts, it can be done with this bundle of add-ons. Keep reading to find out more.

 

What do I get?

This bundle contains three premium add-ons:

 

Excerpts & Thumbnails

Excerpts & Thumbnails gives you the ability to add thumbnail images and short excerpts to your shortcode display. This will go along with the feed title, source name and date. The display can be improved further with some CSS styling.

 

Categories

Categories allows you to set your own categories for each feed source. Every feed item imported from that feed source will be assigned that category, and you can then display particular categories via shortcode parameters on any post or page.

 

Keyword Filtering

Keyword Filtering allows you to filter what content is imported in the first place based on keywords, key phrases or even tags. No longer will you be importing irrelevant or unwanted content. This add-on will bring in the content you tell it to.

 

These add-ons provide you with a wide array of features to bring the shortcode display up to scratch. Just have a look below at some of the main features on offer with this bundle.

 

Add excerpts to each title in the shortcode

Through the available options you will be able to enable or disable excerpts for all sources. You can then set an excerpt word limit, choose the characters to appear at the end of each excerpt (ex: … ), and enable and customize a “Read more” link at the end of each excerpt to link to the original source.

 

Add thumbnail images to each title in the shortcode

Adding some colour to the shortcode display can only help your site look better. Through the available options you can set the thumbnail image height and width to use, set a default thumbnail to be used when no image is found in the RSS feed, link the thumbnail image to the feed item permalink, choose what to do when the feed item has no image, and even choose the image to use (from the RSS feed source) as the thumbnail image.

 

Categorize feed sources

Organizing your feed sources and being able to display a group of them at a time is something everyone would like. That is why the Categores add-on gives you the ability to create and assign categories to Feed Sources. You can then display a category of feed sources at a time via the shortcode parameters. (Note that these are not the native WordPress post categories – they are custom categories for the Feed Items custom post type of WP RSS Aggregator only.)

 

Additional styling options

The shortcode display is elegant by default, but we understand that it might not fit in with every website’s style. To change the styling of the feed item display you can use some of the CSS tricks we have documented or create news ones for yourself.

 

Filter the content you import

Use the keyword filtering options to only import posts that contain certain keywords, phrases or even tags. You can apply settings to all sources or per individual source.

 

What can I build?

Below are just a few use-cases for the complete Simple Feed Bundle:

 

Technical Details

Requirements

  • WP RSS Aggregator Core Plugin
  • WordPress 4.0 or higher
  • PHP 5.3.9 or higher
  • The core plugin requires WP Cron to work in order to function correctly. If this is not possible for any reason, WP RSS Aggregator cannot ensure that the feed source imports are run.
  • WP RSS Aggregator also uses SimplePie, and hence its requirements must also be fulfilled. WordPress currently comes bundled with SimplePie version 1.3.1. To review its minimum system requirements please click here.
  • All our plugins work only on self-hosted versions of WordPress (WordPress.org) and are not compatible with the hosted version of WordPress (WordPress.com).

Other details:

  • The Categories add-on does not utilize the native WordPress post categories. It uses a custom taxonomy set up for the Feed Item custom post type that is used solely by WP RSS Aggregator. The categories created can only be used to categorize Feed Sources.
  • All price options are billed yearly, automatically. License keys provide you with updates and support for one (1) year. If you have a valid subscription, the license keys are renewed automatically every year. If not, the license key must be renewed manually to keep benefitting from any updates and support, and for Full Text RSS Feeds to continue working.
  • “Single Site”, “Up to Five Sites” and “Up to Twenty Sites” refer to the number of WordPress sites you can activate each license key on. They do not refer to the number of feed sources you can import from. In fact, the number of feed sources per site is unlimited.
  • All add-ons and bundles are covered by our 30 Day 100% Money Back GuaranteeView full terms & conditions.

FAQs

Q: Can I use the native WordPress categories to categorize feed sources or imported feed items?

A: No, native WordPress categories are different to the categories used by the Categories add-on in WP RSS Aggregator. They do not work the same and do not work together. It is also not possible to assign a category to a specific feed item. Categories in this bundle are applied to all imported feed items for a single source.

 

Q: Does the Excerpts & Thumbnails add-on solve missing image issues when using Feed to Post?

A: No. The two add-ons work differently and are not made to be used together for the same source.

 

Q: Can this bundle be used alongside the Feed to Post and Full Text RSS Feeds add-ons?

A: If you are planning on using this bundle, the following add-ons can only be made use of alongside Feed to Post when enabling the Legacy Feed Items option (hence, re-enabling the use of the shortcode):

  • Excerpts & Thumbnails (does not import as posts, it uses the shortcode feed item display)
  • Categories (does not use the native WordPress post categories, it only categorises feed sources)

This means that once you have installed Feed to Post, the shortcode system used by the core plugin will only work if you use this setting, which disables the Feed to Post functionality for the selected sources. Also, the Categories add-on is not required when using Feed to Post since Feed to Post already includes the taxonomy functionality.

Full Text RSS Feeds does not work with the Excerpts & Thumbnails add-on, so it can not be used to import additional content to what is provided by the RSS feed when using this bundle.

 

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.
