    Hi everyone. Having tried both Autoblogged and WPOMatic, Im still quite fresh to the autoblog scene. I tapped on several rss feeds, although some images display perfectly on WPOMatic, some dont. The big problem is that I dont really know how to check if the feed provides images.

    E.g. A feed which do not provide images
    Code:
    hxxp://feeds.feedburner.com/TotallyLooksLike
    Code:
    hxxp://legomyphoto.wordpress.com/feed/
    It will just display: Images: (Source URL) or sometimes just the title depending on which feed.
    Anyone can help me out and tell me how to check for feeds that provide full pics? Also to clarify, WPOMatic cant pull videos right?

    Thanks.

    autoblogged and wp-o-matic will not pull images if they are embedded media. they will only pull the image if they are within the content as an img src tag. Alot of feeds use embedded content to deliver images and video. Some feeds also use tags such as <image> or <thumb> to deliver images. Neither autoblogged or wp-o-matic checks this by default.
