New Major Release: WPeMatico Better Excerpts 3.0

We want to tell you about our last release. If you work with WordPress you will be interested.

WPeMatico Better Excerpts already had the function to work for the old wordpress posts or for the new posts imported from WPeMatico campaigns. But it also works individually for standard WordPress posts with or without WPeMatico installed!

New posts synchronizer!

New posts synchronizer!

Hey, guys!

Nobody like spam. Right? Actually our newsletters are very infrequent. One or two every two months and just to announce good news 😉

Recently we released new versions of WPeMatico Free 2.3 version to keep maintaining and adding features to our (and your) best plugin ;-D

We will continue with periodic updates, improving and adding new features, but I also want to tell you about a new addon!  Awesome! 

For a long time several users came to us asking for these features, “Updating already imported feeds” -> a wordpress plugin that can import the feed and regularly update the content of the already imported pages. | Set up the campaigns to only update posts | overwrite existing post with new post (Latest content and date) with same title… and so on…

WOW, how sad to answer “Not yet…”, for so long, but we listen! and today we change the answer and currently we say “Now yes!”

Introducing the new WPeMatico Synchronizer.

New posts synchronizer! 1

Synchronizer is an add-on for WPeMatico
that allows you to keep updated the content of the posts obtained by
any feed, during the synchronization process this addon analyzes the
content of the feed items and compares them, if different from the
content of the post, it will be updated, including multimedia files,
authors, categories and tags.

What is Synchronization?

Synchronization is a process that analyzes the items in the feed and
compares them with your posts to determine if there was a change in the

The changes (edited, added and deleted) in the feed items will be synchronized. This means that, as an item is synchronized, your post will be updated by adding these new changes, so both articles will have the same content.

Easy Digital Downloads Dropshipping

Just in time for the new year, we have a new developed and interesting tool!

Have you ever heard of Dropshipping, how it works and what are its advantages for your digital business?

In this article we will try to explain to you in a nutshell what is this new and powerful sales technique and why more users are interested in it every day to set up their own businesses on their websites and also how we get involved in it… for you.

What is Dropshipping?

Drop shipping is a supply chain management method in which the retailer does not keep goods in stock but instead transfers the customer orders and shipment details to either the manufacturer, another retailer, or a wholesaler, who then ships the goods directly to the customer.

As in retail business, the majority of retailers make their profit on the difference between the wholesale and retail price, but in this case the retailers earn an agreed percentage of the sales in commission and paid the difference automatically to the wholesaler when the final client makes the purchase.

How exactly does the dropshipping work?

If you currently own an eCommerce or you are thinking that you need one, by creating agreements and negotiations with owners and/or developers of digital products, you will be able to sell your digital products or services from your own web store.

Then, at the time that the end customer buys any of these products and/or services in your Web store, the owner and/or developer would also receive a notification, so that it is he who sent those customers such products.

What benefit does each party?

  • The business for the retailer or reseller is that he can sell third party products and win a commission on the price of the original owner.
  • The advantage for the dropshipper is that will be able to promote and sell more products on the Internet without having to worry about generating their own products and sending them because they will be responsability of the wholesale store.

EDD Dropshopping Server & EDD Dropshopping Client

A few months ago, starting from this idea we proposed, with our team, a development for Easy Digital downloads focused directly on the Dropshipping.
To get this to work we made two addons. These addons have been developed separately but work together as server and client, allowing users with the EDD Dropshipping server to use their site as a product server, and users who own the EDD Dropshipping client replicate the sale of these products to sell on their own websites in order to generate revenue through sales commissions.

Take a look at these new addons and all their features and benefits. We are sure you’ll like them.

  • Tweaks on redirect to the welcome page when updating. Some few users had problems in the last update with redirect infinite to the Welcome page. We have improved this process.
  • Tweaks on add more feeds to campaign javascript methods. Some addons could present problems in individual feed options, and also filters have been improved to add columns by code more easily.
  • Fixes an issue on {item_date} and {item_time} template tags. The values of the variables of the date and time of publication through the entire process of the items were unified.

WPeMatico RSS Feed Fetcher 2.0 is here!!

It’s finally here!

It’s been a long time and several stages since the old version 1.0… hundreds of improvements and many corrections over the months and even years to make our plug-in one of the most powerful autoblogging tools. Finally, we are pleased to announce to our community of users and customers that a new chapter has begun: WPeMatico RSS Feed Fetcher 2.0 has arrived.

We have improved a lot of things, from the evolution of our host Robotico 2.0, to our websites, add-ons store and user accounts, as well as the WPeMatico plug-in and each of its add-ons. Many of these things will become gradually available, but we couldn’t wait any longer to announce everything!

We’re happy to see how much has improved over time

Over this long journey, we’ve dedicated ourselves to improving and strengthening this plug-in’s features, plus adding lots more, all through analyzing the autoblogging needs of our users and customers in order to fulfill them. These improvements have focused on everything from design to the functionality and performance of our plug-in, and this tool has gone through a lot of changes for the sole purpose of making autoblogging something simple, flexible and easy to use.

Among the most relevant changes that have been made over the years, we can highlight the use of CRON, both the internal one from WordPress as well as an external one from a private or third-party server to noticeably improve site performance, plus the fetching of images, audio and video, allowing for large uploads. One of the most-used features is the assignment of different categories to posts based on the keywords found in the content, or the individual options of each campaign that allow you to modify the defaults from the plug-in configuration, content rewriting, post templates, coding of UTF-8 characters, and much more.


Apart from all these changes, there were a few special things that marked a turning point in the released version:

  • Quick Edit and Bulk Edit. Speeds up changes by removing the need to open the campaign to make simple modifications.
  • The button to execute/activate a campaign from the list.
  • The control panel included inside each campaign, giving easy access to the main functions and to an updated campaign summary.

And the “Campaign Types”. Without a doubt, one of the most important changes, allowing the creation of add-ons to perform different types of campaigns by adding to the standard Feed the possibility of extracting practically any type of content from other sites, such as YouTube Fetcher, Facebook Fetcher, eBay Fetcher, translate before posting and posting to an email account instead of the WordPress blog, among many others…


Introducing Robotico 2.0

It goes without saying that what was once our mascot in a flat icon has become a powerful machine capable of activating, maintaining and defending your WordPress Autoblog from the most powerful enemies: a dead, abandoned or decaying blog… Robotico won’t let your blog fall into the clutches of oblivion. xD


WPeMatico and its Addons have been developed according to the standards and regulations of WordPress, and are also compatible with third-party plug-ins to avoid problems with the site in which it is installed

Facebook Fetcher 2.0

After studying and analyzing the different changes in the privacy policies of the Facebook App, we decided to update our Addon to continue working with all the availability of Facebook.

You can access data from pages of the creator of the app, and among the most important improvements and changes we can highlight that a new page of configurations is added where you must set the app ID and authenticate it. If the APP is not authenticated we have added a notification message to notify you in the edition of the campaign, we have also added an option to select between pages or groups and so you have more control of the content you want to publish.

WPeMatico 1.9

January news 2018, WPeMatico 1.9 13The latest version of our autoblogging plugin. New features that this version has for you are Campaign Preview, which thanks to its compatibility with the Manual Fetching add-on, lets you view the list of the posts the campaign will fetch the next time. We have also added a new function called Convert character encoding to UTF-8, which lets you convert the character encoding of the content and title to UTF-8 if they have a different character encoding. Also, we have tweaked and improved the performance of file loading, and also added compatibility to use HTTP Cookies from the Professional add-on.

Campaign Preview

Another very important feature is that, from the Preview Feed, you can choose which post to publish yourself by clicking on the “Fetch Now” button in the “Actions” column.


The number of posts that will be published in the next fetch will depend on the option Max items to create on each fetch. In the example below, you can see that we have set this to 3 items.


Manual Fetching is also compatible with YouTube Fetcher, and with the Preview Item feature, you can see the content that will be extracted in the post.


We want to emphasize that Manual Fetching works perfectly together with our other add-ons. They can be combined in order to obtain different results.


Professional 1.9

Our Professional add-on is also up to date, and this new version offers many improvements and features, such as improved performance when loading a default image, adjustments to changing the name of the image of the campaign by ticking/unticking other options. We have also made improvements to the audio and video options when it is fetching. And most important of all, we added the new HTTP Cookies function, which allows it to use cookies like a browser would in SimplePie fetching, Full Content, and in uploading multimedia files (images, audio and video). Something else that might be of interest to you is that these cookies are saved to the following file path: wp-contentuploadswpematicoprocurl_cookies.
