It syndicates content from feeds that you choose into your WordPress weblog; the content it syndicates appears as a series of special posts in your WordPress posts database. If you syndicate several feeds then you can use WordPress’s posts database and templating engine as the back-end of an aggregation (“planet”) website. It was developed, originally, because I needed a more flexible replacement for Planet to use at Feminist Blogs, an aggregator site that I used to administer. FeedWordPress is designed with flexibility, ease of use, and ease of configuration in mind. You’ll need a working installation of WordPress (version 3.0 or later), and also FTP or SFTP access to your web host. The ability to create cron jobs on your web host is helpful but not required. You don’t need to tweak any plain-text configuration files and you don’t need shell access to your web host to make it work. (Although, I should point out, web hosts that don’t offer shell access are bad web hosts.) Using and Customizing FeedWordPress FeedWordPress has many options which can be accessed through the WordPress Dashboard, and a lot of functionality accessible programmatically through WordPress templates or plugins. For further documentation of the ins and outs, see the documentation at the FeedWordPress project homepage. License The FeedWordPress plugin is copyright © 2005-2010 by Charles Johnson.
