Importing from old blogs into WA blog

We have a blog page on our site. It would be very handy to import all articles from an outside RSS feed. Is that possible already now? Thanks!

        I need this feature also, but seeing how this was raised as an item in 2011 (and its now 2018) I'm guessing this is never going to happen. I will look for 3rd party software that may be able to facilitate this feature. I will post if I find a successful one so others can know what solution I used.

        It would be great if there was a way to add an RSS feed to the blog widget so that an RSS feed from another site will populate it.

        Ability to import exported data files from WordPress and BBphp while preserving user name and date/time with post.

        It really depends on:

        1) How many people vote on this and provide comments on the thread

        2) How often do we get support questions/requests around this

        3) How much work to make this change

        4) How much other stuff we have in our work queue (currently - a few hundred requests)

        So it varies widely - can be anything from a couple of months to a couple of years.

        Great - and thanks for the quick response!

        Since I'm new here: any idea about the time it takes for wishlist items to become reality?
