    Hello, is there any application or script that can be used to filter out unwated elements from an RSS feed and publish to a blog (wordpress) as a post? (ex: wp-o-matic or wp robot?)

    I tried using Yahoo pipes but it's a bit complicated. I'm trying to get rid of unwanted elements such as comments, pubdate and so on.

    The RSS feed uses this structure

    rss version, channel, item, title, link, comments, pubDate, description. I would only like to display title, description

    any suggestions please

    Home Page:
    With yahoo pipes you can use the ContextBegin and ContextEnd to just pull in the description. For example on most about.com articles you would use <div id="articlebody"> for ContextBegin and <ul class="meta hlist"> for ContextEnd. Doing that would only pull in the Description and leave out any comments, etc. If you don't want to use Yahoo pipes, Plugins like Blogsense-WP has that feature built into it. In blogsense you would set the RSS campaign to Scrape Content for the Partial to full content command and use the Begin code/End code to specify the start and end like my examples for yahoo pipes.

    I may be able to build you a yahoo pipe if you send me the URL for the RSS feed. Either post it here or PM it to me.

    Hey,

    I would suggest you that you should use this <div id="articlebody">
