On these websites you can see how it works:
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
The support is excellent and the component gives you exactly what I needed and quite a bit more
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 Articles get the unpublished status, a cronjob grabs the new articles from anywhere.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.
I had a very strange issue with an SEO extension that, for some reason, didn't show itself until I was using Article Generator. The support provivded by Matthias was excellent. Answering emails over the weekend until finally logging into my site and fixing the problem - even though it had nothing to do with extension!
This extension is highly recommended to everyone who is using RSS feeds to populate their site!!!
1. Need better formatting options for content
2. Hard load - is hard for server to work with this extension, maybe php code is not well optimized. My host company say me: "buy vps from 50 euro monthly".
3. Crons are not working well. If you want to make huge site that retrieve many feeds from many sources and will work automatically is impossible to work on shared host.
