rss Factory PRO combines all the abilities of rss Factory FREE with a very special feature Import2Content, allowing complete or partial import of specified feeds into your Joomla content.
RSS Factory PRO combines all the abilities of RSS Factory FREE but also gives you the ability to import feeds into your content as Joomla articles using the Import2Content feature. You can choose to add full articles and afterwards set rules in order to import like, for example, just the story. This option is unique for Joomla and allows you to populate your site not only with the RSS Story, but with the full story from the source website.
This is not a simple webcrawler, it allows you to add some clear editing rules - for instance to remove the menu frames from the original website, or some advertisements. To create rules you will only need to add HTML tags that specify when the story starts and where it will end. With Import2Content you can also enable a Word Filter which allows you to only import the articles that contain specific words or which contain none of them.
