    I've been searching here.

    But to no avail, I cannot found something I want.

    I've tried using the blogspot email system.

    I make emails subscription using feed burner and then subscribe it on my own.

    The email of the updates then I redirect to the blogger post via email.

    But the problem, all the formatting in the email was also posted.

    Beside that, if the email pull more than one post, all of them is posted on single post in blogspot.

    What I want is something like, pull fresh content of the wordpress blog, and post it with nice formatting on blogspot blog each post for each post from wordpress.

    Have you guys here any solution?

    and I also if you guys know about posting automaticly from wordpress to wordpress is also appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Very interesting because some time ago I came up with idea to make auto backlinking system for my autoblogs through web 2.0 sites that offer e-mail posting feature. Because wordpress is so simple I made plugin for wordpress 3 for my personal use which cuts first few sentences of post, adds link to "original" post (my autoblog post) and sends along with title of the post in subject to entered e-mails (ones that you generate on these web 2.0 sites) on daily or hourly basis. This way backlinking is pretty much automated, its set and forget system. Unfortunately, I had same issue with posting to blogspot. It shows everything you send within email even <br /> or <a> tags written in post body. When I noticed it I disabled posting to blogspot and never tried to solve it (I actually think its not up to us, its their fail).

    I have similar issue with tumblr which screw titles when some special character is in, for example "&" character writes as "&".

    I let this plugin in test run almost month ago and it still does it's job (I just checked it).

    If blogspot isnt a must I think you should try wordpress hosted blog and try to work it out, its the best solution imo, this page should help you the most.

    :D

    Won't it work if you make a function txt2html which replace those special character?

    use str_replace() ?

    Hmm, I think if no good solution, I might end up writing a plugin like yours.

    I'll take a look at it. :)
