Article-Generator Component

This native Joomla 1.5, 2.5 and 3.2 component automatically generates new articles with own keywords by pulling text from any feed-source you want. It gives you the ability to set many different configurations for each feed-source. It keeps you’re site fresh and gives you’re visitors something to read and you have nothing to do. All is done by an cronjob - every 5 minutes, if you wish. It filters the feed-sources by keywords, generates a new article which automatically has own keywords, removes links, link-texts or images - if you want, adds advertising which you can change at any time you want, integrates the original article with an lightbox-effect and refreshes your own website-feed. There are many options to make it possible with every feed-source you want. The new articles improve your page SEO and make your site win positions in the search engines. Article-Generator is fully configurable and each feed-source can be configured with different parameters.

With these many options each article can be customized to your website and content and the new articles are added to your website just as if you wrote them yourself:

*get fulltext from all feeds
*post as different user
*choose section and category
*store original Author name in the article
*choose access group for the article
*show on frontpage
*expiration for the article from 7 days to 1 year (in predefined steps)
*posting of original date
*set Feed-Date as created date
*insert advertising-field which you can change later for all written articles
*filter feed-source by keywords / negative keywords (to ignore posts)
*cut the article at any tag
*full text fetch on feeds that support it
*show intro with advert and no readmore
*show intro and then advert in readmore
*show intro and then fulltext with advert in readmore
*show intro in readmore or not
*Links inside the feed content are set with nofollow to improve SEO
*delete links or links and link-texts in intro or fulltext
*delete links from images in the feed content
*delete images in intro or fulltext
*switch Feed-Intro and Feed-Fulltext
*include link to original-article
*open original-article-link in Lightbox, Slimbox, Shadowbox or Squeezebox
*set JCE params like width and height
*use curl or fsockopen
*posting without repeating an article by checking the title
*Duplicate avoidance which is very useful for SEO purposes
*choose number of SEO-Keywords for the new article
*choose minimum length of SEO-Keywords for the new article
*blacklist of SEO-Keywords for the new article
*activate cronjob on the server or on to generate articles around the clock

Excellent component and extra-ordinary support from Matthias. i tried may components and struggled, but only Article-Generator worked with the very first feed.

I tried the free and paid versions of other products but they all had one issue or another. I have to admit, this one wasn't my first choice but I'm glad I bought it. The product is highly customizable, yet easy to set up and suits my website's needs. I did run into one issue, but it was my website code, not the component. Matthias was kind enough to dive into my code and correct the display issue. He didn't have to do it, but he is a super nice guy and loves what he does, it's obvious. Support response time was excellent. Matthias, keep up the good work!

This component worked just after i installed the first feed and arranged the cronjob.
I was testing other packets for days and couldn't do anything and this one worked at once.
Also matthias offered me great help when needed and for problems that were not this extension's problems.
Thanks for all these.

I installed the extension and tested it with multiple sources for some time. It does exactly what it promises to do, full of features.
I very much appreciate support that I had. I needed a specific feature for article de-duplication. Mathias spent quite a lot of time to implement this feature for my needs.

I cannot give enough praise to Matthias and his extensions. First of all his products work great and will serve you well. Second, and probably most importantly, Matthias is more helpful than anyone I have encountered on the web! He spend hours helping me get my site back and working properly, and helped me fix issues that were not related to his product at all. Truly amazing and thank you SO MUCH. I highly recommend purchasing these products, you will not be sorry. This is a real review from a real person. A++ thank you so much.

This is an excellent extension that can increase your site's visitors the easy way, and works perfectly.
I had also immediate and excellent tech support for my questions.
I used this to integrate news-feeds in a category(e.g. economic news from major news providers) and make my site look that is always up-to-date.
There are many choices to make in the extension in order for it work as you wish.
I have installed joomla in many sites over the last 2 years and this is the most hopeful extension i have found. The difference is that it imports the feeds in your db and that can make the difference in visitors.
Thank you Matthias

I bought the original 1.5 version a while back and used it on quite a few sites - it worked like a charm. When J2.5 came out I contacted Matthias and asked him for a compatible version. It took a while but he kept me informed - and now we have a great component that works wonderful.

The support is excellent and the component gives you exactly what I needed and quite a bit more

This is a great tool for any site trying to aggregate news feeds. There are many display options to choose from. It does exactly what we need. Customer service is great too. We had a bug on our site and Matthias helped us figure out a work-around. He quickly identified the problem, presented a solution, and followed-up all within a few hours. I'd highly recommend Article Generator.

A really awesome extension,
very flexible. Articles get the unpublished status, a cronjob grabs the new articles from anywhere.
Support is quick available, use the email address from the developers PayPal account. I had an issue with the div's in grabbed articles. Problem was cleared in a few hours.

As I wanted to buy this component, my fear was to have of unpleasant surprises about expected features. Thanks to the positive comments I saw here about the support, I finally bought it. This component does what it is supposed to, no surprise! Articles are well generated, using defined keywords and several feeds. Furthermore, when there is pb, questions, or the unexpected behavior (even if not involved by the component), Matthias gives you more than means to solve the issue : if you agree, he reaches your web site backend, analysis, solves the problem and gives you detailled explanations about it. Once more thank you for the support Matthias!

Article-generator is such an amazing extension, from a wonderful developer. I got this extension and is just working as stated. I have never seen such supports Matthias has given me in any joomla softwares. His supports are instant, he always want to make sure you are satisfied with his products. All i can say is, if you are looking for a software like this in the joomla market, think of Article-generator. Thank you very much Matthais and keep on the good work.
