    To use FeedWordPress, you will need:

    • an installed and configured copy of WordPress (version 4.5 or later).

    • the ability to install new plugins on your site using either WordPress’s Plugins Repository, SFTP, FTP or shell access to your web host

    New Installations

    1. Download the FeedWordPress installation package and extract the files on
      your computer.
    2. Create a new directory named feedwordpress in the wp-content/plugins directory of your WordPress installation. Use an FTP or SFTP client to upload the contents of your FeedWordPress archive to the new directory that you just created on your web host.
    3. Log in to the WordPress Dashboard and activate the FeedWordPress plugin.
    4. Once the plugin is activated, a new Syndication section should appear in your WordPress admin menu. Click here to add new syndicated feeds, set up configuration options, and determine how FeedWordPress will check for updates. For help, see the FeedWordPress Quick Start page.


    To upgrade an existing installation of FeedWordPress to the most recent release:

    1. Download the FeedWordPress installation package and extract the files on
      your computer.

    2. Upload the new PHP files to wp-content/plugins/feedwordpress,
      overwriting any existing FeedWordPress files that are there.

    3. Log in to your WordPress administrative interface immediately in order
      to see whether there are any further tasks that you need to perform
      to complete the upgrade.

    4. Enjoy your newer and hotter installation of FeedWordPress

    1. I installed the plugin and wanted to add custom news feeds from Google or Bing.
      Both feeds get the following error ( I changed feed:// to http://:

      Diagnostic information
      HTTP request failure
      connect() timed out!

      HTTP Transport:
      string(12) “WPHTTPcurl”

      This is a new wordpress install and on a Dev site thats password protected.
      Is this a permissions issue?

      • Hi there,

        Sorry you ran into this problem. It is a known compatibility issue with PHP 5.4. Happily, the issue should be fixed in the recent release of FeedWordPress, v. 2012.1218. (You can see more about this release in the announcement post here; it’s available for download from the WordPress plugins repository as well.

        Hope this helps!

    4. Is this plugin still being supported? I’m evaluating a couple of RSS to post options and this one was recommended, but the recommendation and software appear to be a couple of years old.

    6. I am not able to get Featured image from other blog website and i am also not able to fetch feed automatically, every time i have to click on update button at admin panel
