    Hey there,

    found out about this forum not that long ago, and love it, full of great info.

    I've been reading about Autoblogging mostly and came across few things that I can't wrap my head around.

    Getting RSS feeds to the blog is not a problem, the challenge comes with getting the FULL content of RSS feeds. I noticed in my RSS searching-ventures that most, if not all, sites don't post full content in their feed.

    So, I have been playing with plugins and such to see if there is a solution to this but wasnt able to find one. Few threads I came across here in the board are pretty old wich tackle this subject and are not current anymore.

    I also tried playing with yahoo pipes, which I didn't even know existed prior to this forum, but just cant get it to work right.

    So, finally the question :), let's say you start an autoblog and use mostly RSS feeds which have "Click here to read the whole story" type of posts, is this going to work at all ? The visitors are actually never on your blog, since they always have to go somewhere else.

    Or, is there a way to get the full feed ?

    And the last question, what is the best way, or a way at all, to look for RSS feeds? Do you just google them ?

    Oh and yeah, I did use search before posting :), but the results where not what I was looking for.

    If you are looking for a plugin-type solution, BlogSense currently offers yahoo pipe like operations (content scraping as well as regular expression functions). It was named and designed pretty much by users here on BHW over many various threads.
