Autoblog pull in feeds using xml or blogs that do not have a real rss feel?

I am having difficulty using the autoblog plugin with some blogs that are using the xml and just generic http://www.xyx.com/blog type url. Do you know how to get this plugin to pull the articles from a feed using xml or a non rss blog feed? Any direction will help! Thanks!

    Hey Anthony,

    Hope you're doing well today and welcome to the WPMU DEV Community!

    Autoblog was designed specifically for RSS feeds, so I believe it would take some advanced customization in order for it to work with any other sort of feed. If it would at all.

    For those certain feed pages you could try something like a web scrapper: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-web-scrapper/

    These don't use rss feeds and instead just scrape the content from the html. Results can sometimes vary page to page with these because it isn't taking it from a standard formatted feed like an RSS one.

    Hope this helps! Let us know if you need any further assistance here.

    Cheers,
    Tyler
