    The syndicated_item_content hook allows you to write filters which alter or act on the content of posts that are syndicated by FeedWordPress. The hook passes two parameters to any registered filter functions:

    1. $content, a string containing the content of the item (as taken from the syndication feed), and
    2. $post, an object of class SyndicatedPost representing the syndicated item as a whole.

    The return value for the filter function should be a string containing the filtered content to be imported into the WordPress database. The original content should be returned unchanged if the filter will not modify the content of the post.


    add_filter('syndicated_item_content', $callback, $order, /*arguments=*/ 2);
    // $callback should be the name of a callable function with two parameters, such as 'fwp_syndicated_item_content_filter'
    // $order should be an integer value; a lower value means that the filter will be executed sooner; a higher value means later

    function fwp_syndicated_item_content_filter ($content, $post) {

    /* ... */

    return $content; }


    This example filter will add information about the source of an article to the content of articles syndicated from that source, if the articles were authored by someone other a defined author.
