Article-Generator Component

This native Joomla 1.5, 2.5 and 3.x 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

The best component in it's category because of its simplicity. And Matthias' support is all that matters the most.
Well done!
Two tips for the next update:
1. A "copy" button that will help us create new sources with the same settings. It will save us a lot of time.
2. Make alias not only from the title, but from datetime or the Source-Name etc.

Purchased Article generator and seo generator for both joomla 2.5 and 3.3.
SEO generator you simply install and enable and it works.
Article generator was very easy to install, but I could not understand what I needed to do to make it work. I contacted the owner and got it running within the hour. Articles get created automatically through RSS feeds without you having to do any work. Everything is done automatically. Amazing extension and service!!! Thank you Matthias

This is a simple but powerful extensions. It does what it says. Tons of possibilities, though.
And, better of all, as a plus, the super-mega-great support Matthias gives.

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.

This extension does exactly what it says it does with clear directions and installation. Additionally when I ran into issues trying to get it to fully automate due to my own ignorance Matthias responded quickly with all sorts of help. A great extension with wonderful support. Thank you so much!

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.

THe component is doing exactly what I wanted it to do . I am very impressed with this app.

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.
