    hi guys i have some beautifull wp theme that use custom fields to work
    so at each post i have to put
    under "custom fields" NAME and VALUE
    and the grafic is perfect with Thumbnail ecc ...

    Should be perfect if i can make an autoblog that when post a video, article ecc
    write the custom field name and value in automatic for adding a professional thumbnail at each post in autoblog mode!!!!

    Yes, it's possible to set up custom fields for posts so each new post will automatically have those fields inserted. You need to write it as a WP plugin, though, or if not, you need to include it as part of your theme's functions.php file.
    Check this codex post out:
    Code:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/add_meta_box
    
    That will show you how to add the custom fields to your post/page admin menus, and then to populate them you just need to add the variable and value from your autoposter to it using the wp_post_insert function.

    Recently I wrote this into blogsense to handle automatic custom fields for images only.

    I use this to post videos to a blog using a tube theme, the tube theme uses custom fields

    Here is a short example of what I use

    Code:
    $success = wp_insert_post($post);
    				
    if (!$success) 
    	$errmsg[] = "Failed posting from $name";
    else
    {
    $errmsg[] = "$name successfully processed $success";
    //update custom_fields based on NTS file
    add_post_meta($success, 'thumb', $thumb);
    //add_post_meta($success, 'duration', $duration);
    $results++;
    }
    

    I insert a new post and if successful I then add the custom field, in this case its a thumbnail of a video
