How to Improve FeedWordpress

FeedWordPress is the best free plugin to syndicate posts from WordPress RSS feeds. Syndication is not the best practice, but it suits the needs of a client and their site network.

However, there is some minor issues. There is no built in duplicate post detection. This can create a mess when syndicating multiple feeds that may contain the same posts. Also, a default category is not assigned to posts if there is no matching category on your site. Place the below filter in your themes functions.php file to correct these issues.

Lastly, we don’t want search engines to index these articles, they aren’t original content on our site. I also make use of Yoast WordPress SEO, we’ll use that to our advantage.
