I could not find any plugin, which could help me with importing rss feed (like this: http://www.verzekeringsnieuws.nl/rss/algemeen.xml)

I found feedGator, but it didn't work in joomla 3...

maybe there are some ways to import rss as articles?

Although using an existing extension might be easier, if you have some knowledge of PHP you could also create your own feed reader (using simplexml_load_file() ), in order to have full control on how the data is used and displayed. For the most basic usage, a module with the following code would output your feed items:

    $feed = "http://www.verzekeringsnieuws.nl/rss/algemeen.xml";
    $rss = simplexml_load_file($feed);

    echo '<h1>'. $rss->channel->title . '</h1>';

    foreach ($rss->channel->item as $item) {
       echo '<h2><a href="'. $item->link .'">' . $item->title . "</a></h2>";
       echo "<p>" . $item->pubDate . "</p>";
       echo "<p>" . $item->description . "</p>";
       echo '<p><a href="'. $item->link . '" class="btn btn-primary">Read more...</a></p>';


Once you have the data you can present it as you want, manipulate it, save it to your database and so on.


Your are in the right direction, but you only have to choose other extension. FeedGator has not been updated in a while.
