    I recently set up an Autoblog using WP Robot in local host (using WAMP). It pulls the text/post automatically no problem or whatsoever but it does not pull any images in the post.

    I checked the source where from the post is grabbed and that post has an image in it while mine does not. What could be the problem?

    Does WP Robot pull image in the post? or it grabs only the text? Also, is there any way we can make WP Robot pull the images alone to make a Picture Blog?

    I think we have to use Wordpress Themes with full text... I mean with out the "Read More..." functionality or the thumbnail functionality to use WPRobot on it.

    Thanks for your reply and yeah I have 3.0+ version and grabbing images from flickr is good. My question was about grabbing pictures from the articles too. Lets say my source has a image and an article to it... when grabbing this, only text is grabbed and not the image.

    wprobot will hotlink images from feeds and will not download them. i think wprobot is not the supreme plugin when it comes to work with rss feeds, but with pulling content from keyword campains

    i believe WProbot only grabs the images esp with an RSS feed only if they are present in the original post and only if the original content can be parsed through completely rather than just getting an excerpt thru RSS> thats the gist i got after surfing the wprobot forum for an hour. it doesnt seem to do a great job with RSS i agree.

    it;s great with youtube and flickr etc but for some reason now it;s not pickin up thumbnails for youtube either.
