    I am working on a backend administrator for a bunch of micro sites as well as a main site. The content will be pretty much the same or similar and this was my initial thought:

    I will have a bunch of content being created in my backend administrator. Just goes into a database. I was thinking that I could create an administrator function to create RSS feeds for each website based upon a query from the database. The query would have to have basic fields such as: Title, Date, Category (maybe), Content.

    Then just use WP tools to auto-post the feed?

    What kind of tools would be helpful to me? I know (from usage) of BlogSense that I could use it easy enough to post into the right categories and all that... But I really want to knock this out of the park.

    Any suggestions based upon my shitty explanation? :)

    Interesting. Thank you. I'll have to run some tests, but do you have to do anything special for pinging? Example... If I want to have an RSS Feed that back-feeds content (dated), is there a way to ensure it pings each content piece? Any way to 'drip feed'?

    What I need to be able to do is feed an entire site for months at a time.. .only way to do that is to drip-feed posts. But need to be able to ping at the same time or it is useless (IMO)

    How many sites do you currently have? In this situation, most people (myself included) want to put the cart before the horse.

    If you're managing under 20 sites it's easy to just log in, schedule posts and move to the next site. If you're managing 50 sites, that needs to be managed.

    Currently it is under 20. However, all sites will be using the same type of data and I am creating a central administrator for that anyway. This is why I thought to add to the central admin to make things easier for me. I have about 100 domains which I would like to use the data on.
