How to Import an RSS Feed in WordPress – In this article I am showing you how to import an RSS feed in WordPress.
You will learn what an RSS feed is, why you might want to use it to syndicate content to your website (and what syndication is), how to import an RSS feed in WordPress with a plugin and how to select a specific post category to import.
If you are interested in WordPress tutorials, make sure you also check these other articles of mine:
Follow steps 1-3 from the previous tutorial on How to Import an RSS Feed in WordPress
Find the URL structure of the website you want to import the RSS feed category from by clicking on the category name in the post meta data
Add it to the RSS feed URL as &[the site’s category structure] (in this tutorial the final URL is http://www.torinoclick.it/?feed=rss2&cat=10573, in other cases it might be &category=nameofyourcategory)
In some cases the RSS feed URL might be domainname.com/feed or domainname.com/rss (with no previous question mark used). If that’s the case, replace the & from the example above with ? so that it reads domainname.com/feed?cat= or domainname.com/feed?category=)
I hope that by know you have learned how to import an RSS feed in WordPress. For importing an RSS category, I couldn’t find any free plugin so that’s why I came up with this trick.
