Feedzy is an RSS aggregator that helps you to curate content, autoblog, display and import RSS feeds within a few minutes.
The basic functionality of the plugin is to display information from a site to another one. The key point in this process is called the feed. The feed is represented by a URL on the source website, where information is available/exposed. The information available in the feed can be customized by the source website owner, so not everything you see on the site is also available in the feed.
This feed (URL) has to be set in Feedzy, so the plugin can render the available information on the destination site. Feedzy can't produce content, so it's just displaying/importing the information available in the feed.
Now that you know more on how the plugin works, you might need help with finding feeds. The following article might be useful: How to find Feed URL for Feedzy.
How to install Feedzy
In order to have Feedzy Pro working properly, please make sure that both versions of the plugin are installed and activated at the same time.
There are two main scenarios of using this plugin. One is to display the information available in the feed, the other one is to import the feeds as posts on your website.
This section covers displaying the feeds. For the import functionality, please check the following guide: How to use Feed to Post feature in Feedzy

Display information from the feed - 4 methods
There are 4 methods as it depends on the page editor you use. The shortcode and widget methods are independent of the editor.
All methods presented below have exactly the same options available. The only difference is the editor.
Integration with Gutenberg
When using Gutenberg editor for editing the post/page, just search for the Feedzy block, add the desired feed(s) and set the available parameters in the right sidebar.
Integration with Elementor
When using Elementor plugin for editing the post/page, you can find the Feedzy widget in the left panel where all the elements are. Drag and drop the widget in the desired area of the page. Then add the desired feed(s) and set the available parameters in the left panel.
Using a shortcode
Shortcodes are very easy to use, as they can be added almost anywhere. It can be either in the content of a post/page or in a dedicated section provided by the theme you are using. This approach should work with any WordPress theme and page builder plugin.
The basic shortcode is [feedzy-rss feeds="source_URL"]. For the complete list of the available parameters, please check the following guide: How to use Feedzy with a shortcode.
Using a widget
A widget can be added in Dashboard->Appearance->Widgets. Search for Feedzy RSS Feeds widget and add it to the desired area. The available areas depend on the theme you are using.
