What is This Feature?

Within RSS Post Importer and Curated RSS Aggregator you can choose how often every feed is updated, in what is called Processing interval. Note: In RSS Post Importer there is also an option Fetch interval.

RSS Post Importer and Curated RSS Aggregator come with many options of processing intervals, such as every day, every week and so on. But you can create custom ones by using a separate plugin, WP Crontrol.

Where Do I Set The Processing Interval?

In RSS Post Importer you choose fetch and processing intervals in the first step of adding feeds.
