What Can You Do With This Plugin?
URL to RSS – Custom Curated RSS Feeds is a powerful tool to generate RSS feeds for any website from the internet. You need to add in the plugin settings the URL from where you wish to get the RSS feed and the plugin will do the rest of the work. These feeds will be automatically updated with new articles, without your further intervention. This plugin allows you to create RSS feeds out of almost any web page. Your only task is to provide us with target URL and point on desired blocks in the plugin’s visual RSS builder.
The rest is the plugin’s job. And you get your feeds in seconds!
The plugin will store your RSS feed on your website (similar to RSS feeds that are already present on your site).
The plugin will generate a unique URL for each feed you’ve created.
This URL can be used in HTML code at your website or be embedded in any RSS reader or software that manages RSS feeds. It can also be provided to one of many RSS readers or any other RSS-related service.
You no longer need to sign up for expensive services that allow you to create only a limited number of RSS feeds. This plugin (after a one time purchase price), will allow you to create an unlimited number of RSS feeds from any site, and to publish them on your own website.
Once you’ve created your RSS feed it starts updating automatically.
All RSS feed content is updated at a schedule (set in plugin settings). No need to manually regenerate the RSS each time to refresh it, the plugin will do this job for you.
How does it work?
This plugin will crawl the seed URL you give it (crawling means that it will search all links that the web page contains) and will visit and extract content from each crawled URL. The extracted content will be processed (word replacement, translation, word spinning, and with many more supported operations). The crawling process is customizable: you can set the crawling depth, crawling rate, maximum crawled article count, crawl only links with specific class or ID and many more customizations.
You can scrape content from almost every web site that you open in your browser.
Also, you can automatically generate unlimited number of custom website crawling rules, that will create an unlimited number of RSS feeds.
Other plugin features:
- Visual content selector support to make content scraping a lot easier
- Ability to make screenshots of crawled pages and use them in RSS feed item’s content
- Ability to shorten outgoing links (and monetize them), using Shorte.st link shortener service – example of shortened link
- Set multiple proxies for crawling pages. The plugin will select one at random at each page access
- Paginate crawling (crawling for articles will continue on the next page of the seed page).
