I am struggling to find a clear explanation of what the "attach to content type" field in the basic settings of a Feeds importer actually does. The closest explanation I can find is from here:
"Feeds importers" can be used attached to a content type or on standalone forms. If attached to a content type, an import (or aggregation) is created by creating a node. This is e. g. useful when you would like your users to contribute feeds or when you need to track many feeds of data of the same kind.Alternatively, a Feeds importer can be used on a standalone form. This is useful for one-off imports like importing nodes.
I don't understand what this explanation means. Would be grateful if someone could explain what setting this "attach to content type" option actually does.
