Universal Content Puller

Universal Content Puller provides a simple unified interface to pulling in content from many sources including other pages, other sites and RSS feeds while providing an enhanced and unified infrastructure:

  • Common caching of sources
  • Recursively nest sources (e.g. stacks within stacks)
  • Share block templates across all sources
  • Format lists
  • Borrow templates from other blocks using wrappers
  • Manipulate the text of pulled content
  • Easily plugin further sources
  • AJAX load any source (requires Blocks by AJAX addon)
  • Conditionally show content (requires Magic Data addon and a minimum of concrete5 v5.6)

Get Universal Content Puller and Blocks by AJAX together in AJAX Anything for a bargain price.

In addition to content sources, other pluggable areas include how content is listed and wrapped for display.
