RSS Post Importer - Changing User Agent


Changing the User-Agent for the RSS Post Importer

Back to User Guides

Each time an RSS Feed is requested by a browser the browser must provide a User Agent signature to show what kind of device or browser wants to use the file or display it. Some servers block WordPress from making RSS requests. Should this happen it can be useful to change the User-agent.

To find the needed setting in the RSS Post Importer, navigate to Admin Dashboard → CM RSS Post Importer Pro → Options.

Navigation to the plugin options - RSS Feeds Importer Plugin
Navigation to the plugin options

Under the Plugin Options tab, find User Agent and select which of the User-Agent signature options you want to use. "Chrome on Windows" is a good choice.

Having made your choice, click on Save Changes.
