Installing the Feeds module

We're going to use the Feeds module to import our content. This module is extremely powerful and allows you to set up automated imports of content from multiple formats including CSV and OPML files; and RSS, XML, and ATOM feeds. The import process we will use in later chapters creates nodes and taxonomy terms in the target website. This is the method we're going to use to migrate our content. We'll be creating a Feeds module based importer that allows us to import data from a CSV file into nodes that are part of a content type in our site. These nodes will hold our individual imported content and act as our new web pages. We'll also import data to taxonomy vocabs on our site so we can use this data as tags.
