    Would be greatly useful in importing archives of news feeds and wanting them to appear in chronological order.

    It's because they post all at once. There would have to be a delay mechanism in place. Either that or the ability to chose how many articles are posted and then chose one at a time.

    If I were to set it to one per time wouldn't it still appear in reverse chronological order?

    It should grab the oldest first. I haven't looked at their code but that's pretty standard procedure for feed parsing.

    That's what I figured when I looked into it but according to Registered Feed Pulling in wrong order that is not the case.

    That's backwards then. It should be starting at the back. You can always just have them moderated, then there is probably a date changing mod out there somewhere. Change the dates and approve in order. Sloppy but it would work. It's probably not a good idea to bomb your forums with that many at once anyway. Nobody will have time to read and comment them.

    It's a base feed parser that's included. Get's the job done but....

    Posting a mass amount isn't particularly ideal, you're right. It's mainly being done to ensure all of the RSS posts are consistent and featured on the forums with a link to the site. After that how it posts them now would work just fine.
