Migration in progress.
Dear FeedWordPress users: I am currently in the process of migrating the FeedWordPress project homepage from its space on
projects.radgeek.com to a new, dedicated website at
feedwordpress.radgeek.com, which should include the existing content of this homepage, but will also allow for other features — notably a documentation Wiki which should allow for more up-to-date and more extensive documentation and examples. I’m excited, and I hope you’ll be pleased.
The new stand-alone site is ready to peruse. All new information about FeedWordPress, including announcements of new releases and responses to reported issues, will take place at the new site. For the time being, this page is locked down; once the finishing touches are complete over at the stand-alone site, this homepage will be replaced with an HTTP redirect to the new stand-alone site.
See you on the flip side!
FeedWordPress is an Atom/RSS aggregator for the WordPress weblog software. It syndicates content from feeds that you choose into your WordPress weblog; if you syndicate several feeds you can use WordPress’s posts database and templating engine as the back-end of an aggregator (
planet) website. It was originally developed because I needed a more flexible replacement for Planet to use at Feminist Blogs.

- Status: supported, active development.
FeedWordPress is designed with flexibility, ease of use, and ease of configuration in mind. You’ll need a working installation of WordPress or WordPress MU (version 2.8, 2.7, 2.6, 2.5, 2.3, 2.2, 2.1, 2.0 or 1.5), and also FTP or SFTP access to your web host. You don’t need to tweak any plain-text configuration files and you don’t need access to shell or crontab on your web host to make it work. (Although, I should mention, web hosts that don’t offer shell access and cron jobs are bad web hosts.)
