    I have spent most of the morning searching the forum for automated blogging plugins for WordPress since I have been familiarizing myself with autoblogs and how they are done for quite some time now.

    I ran into some confusion while searching throughout the forum, because I see there seems to be a problem with Caffeinated Content these days. I know this is/was a very popular autoblogging script and a lot of people were using it in its prime. So, I decided I wasn't going to go with CC.

    Then the next plugin that seems to be very popular as well is WP-O-Matic. Well, it seems the current version is a bit out-dated and I saw people posting about various bugs and problems that they were encountering. So now I'm not so sure about starting with this plugin either, but it seems a lot of people still use it. I think someone said a new version was expected to be out soon. Anyone know when? On the WordPress Plugins page it says it was last updated on 07/18/2008, and is only compatiable up to WP 2.6.

    Finally, I ran across AutoBlogged. This plugin looks really nice and feature-packed, and I know some of you on the board use it. After reading over some praises towards AutoBlogged, I went and read their site. It looks very interesting, and very promising. It also seems like it is updated whenever needed.

    So if anyone could give me any extended feedback on AutoBlogged, besides "this is the best autoblog plugin ever" (or the opposite), I would greatly appreciate it. Of course feedback on any other plugins are definitely encouraged as well.

    Thank you very much!

    I know this is a typical/newbie question, but NO ONE has any feedback on the three plugins mentioned above or any others?

    Thanks again.

    Thanks man. That is what I kind of figured but after searching the forum and finding constant problems with the best scripts available here for download, I figured I might get some specific insight on what people were using, had used, or if they were having any problems with any specific plugin so I would know more of which to avoid.

    But, I'll just try them out myself, starting with AutoBlogged since it seems to be stable and feature-rich; it's the best way to learn anyway. :)

    We keep autoblogged up-to-date with the latest wp releases (because wordpress releases tend to break things). We are currently testing our update for wp 2.8 in anticipation of its release.

    Wp-o-matic and feedwordpress are both pretty good free alternatives, depending on what features you need.

    The problem with autoblog is that you won't get full article out of rss feeds......actually there is no plugin which can get full articles.

    I've tried wp-o-matic and autoblogged. I never had much success with wp-o-matic. Autoblogged has been very good though. It's simple to use for a newbie like me. Yes it's limited to articlebase only but that's fine for me for now. I'm just starting out with autoblogging so if you are just learning the ropes autoblogged will get you started just fine.

    I'm not going to go further in explanation because theres a 5 page topic on it on the first page of the Blogging subforum.

    Can you please give me the topic name. Are you talking about the "99% guide to autoblog topic"?

    There are ways to get full feeds.. just do a google search and you'll find it.

    I use different methods myself that work very well.l

    the ZipPoster drip feed plugin works well with autoblogging too but it doesn't have all the bells n whistles that AutoBlogged has though

    WP Autoblog is another free one that works - but it is no longer updated and has no bells and whistles but it works...

    I'm using WP-O-Matic on another blog that I own and it works like a charm. It was easy to install and easy to customize the options that I wanted for my site.

    Here's the list of features from the WP site:

    • Campaigs Feeds and all settings and options are now organized into campaigns for the perfect organization and comfort.
    • Multiple feeds / categories: it?s possible to add as many feeds as you want, and add them to as many categories as you want. It?s not obstrusive, so you can also write your own posts to any of those categories.
    • Every form of XML syndication supported. This includes RSS 0.91 and RSS 1.0 formats, the popular RSS 2.0 format, and the emerging Atom.
    • Feed autodiscovery, which lets you add feeds without even knowing the exact URL. (Thanks Simplepie!)
    • Unix cron and Wordpress cron jobs For maximum performance, you can make the RSS fetching process be called by a Unix cron job, or simply let Wordpress handle it.
    • Comfortable interface. The admin is powered by a state of the art ajaxy interface that lets you handle your feeds with ease. Updated!
    • Images caching for extreme performance and hotlinking bypassing.
    • Words Rewriting. Regular expressions supported.
    • Words Relinking. Define custom links for words you specify.
    • Post templating. Define a global header and footer for the posts, or even for a specific feed. Add ads
    • Campaigns import/export using OPML files. Easily import hundreds of feeds into new or existing campaigns!
