Want to automate posting stories from your favorite websites? The RSS Import module lets you import your favorite RSS feeds to your Pligg CMS site as submissions.

The RSS Import module allows you to import your favorite RSS feeds into your Pligg CMS site as submissions. It is the easiest way to automate your website to bring in fresh content on a regular basis. It is also a great way to build content on a new website and attract more visitors.

In order to bring in stories automatically, you will need to set up a cron job (scheduled task) to import the latest articles at regular intervals. If you are unfamiliar with setting up a cron job, please consult your web host’s documentation. Without setting up a cron job, you will need to manually trigger the RSS Import module’s import function by accessing the /modules/rss_import/import.php file in your browser, or by triggering it from the RSS Import settings page.

This module is developed as an unofficial Pligg module, which means that we will only provide very limited support for this item. For the latest development version of this module, please visit the RSS Import GitHub development directory. If you would like to report a bug or request a feature, please do so by starting a new issue on this page. Don’t forget to include the module name, a detailed description of the problem, and instructions on how we might be able to reproduce it.

      Sri. Could you hop in the chat room ( I applied a change to this module yesterday and it may be the cause. I’ll be publishing an update in 5 mins with a change to hopefully fix the module. It will also no longer require that you move the import.php file to the root directory of your site.

    I made lots of changes to this module, and it is working at my site.
    # I was thinking to commit changes, but it’s very hard…

    The path definitions of Pligg is very tricky.
    I made empty captcha_create() function in the import.php, it fixed this problem, but
    it is just temp fix, not fundamental solution.
    It depends on where you put the import.php file.

    @Domain, I recently had this problem, a blank admin/settings page for the module. This version of the RSS Import module (2.1) is for Pligg 2.0. If you did an “auto-install” of Pligg with your webhost, they probably installed Pligg 1.x. I manually installed the newest version of Pligg and, sure enough, the RSS Import module works, and the settings page is no longer blank.

    Just tried this and got the message “Feed not fully setup, skipping” when trying to manually run. Any tips ? Also is there a way to tell the script which category to import into ?

    Ignore / delete last comment from me. I can see I need to edit the feed now.
