5 + 1 Quality RSS Importers for WordPress

August 17th in Wordpress Tips by .

RSS importers have been around for a long time. There are right ways and wrong ways to use them. Some people use RSS importers to engage in shady auto-blogging practices. But there are legitimate reasons for importing feeds into your site. Here are 6 ways to do just that:

rss importer

Optimize WordPress Mobile for Speed ➡️ AMP for WP themes & plugins

WP RSS Multi Importer: imports and merges multiple feeds. You can create blog posts and do all kinds of neat things with your feeds.

wprss

WP RSS Aggregator
: turns your website into a RSS aggregator. It uses SimplePie for feed operations and Custom Post Types for storage.

wprobot

WP Robot: many folks use this plugin for auto-blogging. It has a number of modules for you to choose from. I personally like the RSS module but do not recommend auto-blogging.

rssimporter

RSSImport: lets you display feeds on your blog using PHP or its shortcode. The plugin does have a widget too. It has plenty of parameters for custom import jobs.

autoblogged

AutoBlogged: converts RSS feeds into WordPress posts. You can technically use this for auto-blogging. The script includes attached images and videos. It lets you import custom fields.

onenews

OneNews: OneNews (and other similar RSS themes) do not import RSS feeds but turn your website into an RSS aggregator. You can add and remove feeds that you would like displayed on your site. This is useful for cloning sites like AllTop.

I have tried Wp Multi Import – it is actually very nice. Only Drawback is that you cannot assign different feed items to multiple users.
WP feed Aggregator requires you to download premium plugin to import feed as wordpress post.
Autoblogged is pretty good at importing feeds and it works perfect. but again it's paid plugin.
