WPeMatico RSS Feed Fetcher


WPeMatico is a very easy to use autoblogging plugin. Organized into campaigns, it publishes your posts automatically from the RSS/Atom and XML feeds of your choice.

This plugin offers you a nice interface following the WordPress standards that allows you to manage in every campaign all the feeds you import. In order to make your site more user-friendly, you can fetch contents from multiple feeds and arrange them according to categories.

For XML and RSS fetching, it uses the Simplepie library included in WordPress or forces to use the external library included in the plugin. As for image and files processing, it uses the core functions of WordPress.

i use the WPeMatico Full Content and WPeMatico Professional extensions, it fetched over 250000 items over time. finetuning things when targets change is surprisingly easy, it natively integrates into wordpress, and can be managed extremly detailed to make sure you not running out of reccources. or fetch items during low traffic and other scenarios. absolutely recomended!

WPeMatico is the best RSS plugin around. And the plugin add-ons are well designed, empower WPeMatico to achieve a multitude of operations and tasks. Support is always well thought out and the ETruel team responds to all requests for help. I highly recomment this company and its software.
