import posts from different website

Recommended Posts



Need to give a quote on a new website for a client. She wishes to include "Recent Posts" summary and links from her existing site ChiRecovery.com (see bottom home page, using the Flipper for post summaries).


Need to know how difficult this would be in DMS. Are there plugins available for this or will it require custom code to the single or functions php files and if so, I assume this would require making a child theme so custom code doesn't get overwritten with theme updates? Since I use the Flipper component for this on the Chi site, is there a way to modify the Flipper to access an RSS feed instead of pulling from posts local to a site? Again, need to access posts from chirecovery.com on a new site to be built.


Thanks for your advise

Just ran across a plugin:



Am investigating. It allows "news aggregator" capability. Does anyone have experience using this with DMS and specifically with Flipper? This is a $19/month plugin but one can cancel subscription at any time and it will continue to work (but no more access to support and upgrades.)  Are there other plugins or methods you guys have tried?

Hi John,


You can populate Flipper with posts, pages and custom post types. To populate with an RSS feed would require customizing the section which isn't something we can provide support for.

I have no experience with those plugins. However, if it uses a custom post type, you will be able to populate Flipper with those posts.

Please search our forums, before posting!

      I am using the Powerloop plug-in on my DMS website and can sort my elements by Postdate, but I want to sort the pages in Alphabetic order.
      Actually the same question for sorting Flipper content in Alphabetic order instead of Ascending / Descending / Random options.

      We only want the images and title mouse-over, not link/click to the actual post the title is from.
      Any ideas anyone?

      I just installed and added the Flipper section to my home page and it makes my navigation/menu bar items disappear.
      They do show up again when scrolling down and everything seems normal on the other pages.

      Is there any way to hide the excerpt in Flipper, and the navigation arrows?

      How do I hide (or change) the category title in the Flipper section?
      Could there be a setting for this in the editor?
