    To use FeedWordPress, you will need:

    • an installed and configured copy of WordPress or WordPress MU
      (version 3.0 or later).
    • FTP, SFTP 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

    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! -C

    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

      version: 2013.0504 Who teached you writing php?

    8. hiya ..


      does not works at all with latest version here. Only gives me a blank page but updates for created rss subs are not done.

    9. After using feedwordpress successfully on our school blogs, we suddenly have stopped seeing the add new blogs and the list of blogs that have been syndicated. I tried downloading and installing the upgrade, but no luck.I think they are still syndicated because when I check for updates (that button is the only one there), I see it check. Any advice for a newbie? Thanks

    10. Hey Charles,

      Thanks for the great plugin first of all.

      we use it for some of our pages on theBig City Informer, but realized that it uses a lot of CPU power. Even on a dedicated server it is rather heavy. We already switched to cron-jobs, but it is still too much ;(

      Do you have a planned date for a new version already?

      Do you plan for the next version to include performance improvements or do you have any suggestions on how to make it use less CPU (maybe split the requests to update only a certain amount of feeds per cron-job or so)?


    11. I had it all working fine, but after upgrading both WordPress and then FeedWP, I am no longer getting any of the feeds showing up on the front page. What I get is:

      Not Found Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn’t here.

      I thought it might be my theme, so I switched temporarily to the Feedwordpress theme and got the same thing.

      Help, please

    12. Hi the posts from the feed are showing up in admin but are not being published. They remain uncatergorized. I have been round and round and cant work out why. Can anybody help?
