One of my friends recently inquired about how to create an autoblog with WordPress. Autoblog is a WordPress platform that automatically extracts and publishes content from other websites. We’ll show you how to create a WordPress autoblog in this article.
What’s is a WordPress Autoblog?
An autoblog, also known as an autoblog, is a website that uses RSS feeds to automatically extract content from other websites.
Content-scrapers and spam blogs are commonly associated with the term. However, there are a number of perfectly good and profitable options for using autoblogging apps.
An autoblog, for example, can be used to create a curated website that gathers news on particular issues and presents it all in one location. Autoblogs can also be found on corporate intranets and personal websites.
With that out of the way, let’s look at how to build a WordPress autoblog.
Creating an Autoblog with WordPress
The first move is to download and enable the WP RSS Aggregator plugin. See our step-by-step guide on how to create a WordPress plugin for more details.
The basic plugin is free, but for this tutorial, you’ll need the Advanced Feeds Bundle’s paid add-ons.
The price for a single site licence with one year of support and updates starts at $139.
After you’ve activated and approved all of the add-ons, go to RSS Aggregator » Add New to add a new feed source.
You must first assign this feed source a title, and then enter the RSS feed URL.
Then scroll down to the section labelled “Feed to Post.” You must choose a post form for imported feed products here.
By default, the plugin will import the posts as a draught. You can modify it to be published if you want to.
Make sure the box next to the ‘Total Content Force’ choice is checked. The WP RSS aggregator will be able to retrieve full text messages using this option.
The next move is to configure the ‘Post Feed – Images’ area. This is where you’ll customise your autoblog’s video management.
Images from feed sources can be automatically imported and saved in your WordPress Media Library. The material’s first image can also be retrieved and used as a featured image. You must customise these solutions to meet your particular requirements.
There are several other options when creating a new feed source tab. You may examine them and modify them to meet your requirements.
Keyword filtering allows you to import or remove material that matches those keywords or tags. Custom content may also be added before or after the source article.
Click the Publish Feed button when you’re done.
You can now see the feed items that have been imported to your WordPress account in your posts section.
If required, repeat the process to add more feed sources. You can check the status of your feed by going to RSS Aggregator » Feed Sources.
Quickly add multiple feeds to your WordPress Autoblog
Adding and configuring each feed source one by one can be time-consuming. Here’s how to bind multiple feeds to the same settings at the same time.
Click the Post Feed tab under RSS Aggregator » Settings. To post the addon, you can change the default feed settings here.
These options will be applied to all feed sources you add in the following phase.
After that, navigate to RSS Aggregator » Import & Export. Under the import box, you must enter the name and url of your feed sources.
A comma and a space should be used to distinguish a username and feed URL. For each side, add one feed source.
After that, you can easily link all feed sources to your WordPress autoblog by clicking on the bulk import tab.
That’s all there is to it; we hope this article has been useful in assisting you in creating a WordPress Autoblog.
Editor’s Note: A Word of Warning
If you’re making a public autoblog, don’t scrub any of the content or images because you’ll be committing copyright infringement.
The best use of an autoblog is when it’s used inside a company’s intranet. Click on Summaries and link to the original source for the full article if you’re creating a curated news blog.
