    Q. How do I add a category or tag to posts from a particular feed?

    A: Let’s say you want to categorize or tag posts by the blog that they were syndicated from — so that, for example, all posts that come in from your Google News sources are tagged “Google,” or so that all posts that come in from Getting Rich Slowly are put in the “Advice” category. You can do this easily from within FeedWordPress’s administrative interface.

    1. Log in to your WordPress Dashboard using your administrator username and password.

    2. Go to the FeedWordPress administrative interface by clicking through to the Syndication page.

    3. Pull up the Categories & Tags settings page for the feed whose posts you want to apply the category or tags to. The easiest way to do this is to go to the “Syndicated sources” table and hover your mouse over the source that you want to work with. Several options should appear underneath; click on “Settings > Categories & Tags.”

    4. To add one or more categories to any posts that come in from this feed, scroll down to the Categories box on the Categories & Tags Settings page, There should be a selection box marked “All posts: Give all posts from this feed these categories.” You can check whatever category or categories you want. To add one or more tags to any posts that come in from this feed, scroll down past the Categories box to the Tags box; there should be a text box marked “Tag all posts from this feed as…” Type in one or more tags, separated by commas, and mash the “Add” button to apply them.

    5. When you’ve finished adding Categories and Tags, mash the “Save Changes” button at the bottom of the page.

    From there on out, any incoming syndicated posts from that feed should be placed under the category or categories that you selected.

    1. I am looking forward to pull up special offers(pages /posts) from one website to other in the form of feeds.Will this plugin work for me and Is it necessary that both websites have to be on the word press platform.

    2. Why does my permalink change?

      Permalink is set to %category%/%postname%/

      Previously, the blog permalink is: http://domain.net/category/artikel-berita/artikel/the_post where: artikel-berita = parent category artikel = category

      But now: http://ukmbelajar.net/artikel-berita/artikel/the_post the word /category/ is missing.

      The view quick menu of Posts point to the new url (without /category/)

      The view quick edit on the Post Category menu still points to old url (with /category/)

      If I deactivate the plugin, everything goes normal again. Is there any setting I missed? Thank you
