    its possible using autoblogged plugin instead of wp-o-matic or using yahoo pipes though pipes is a pain in the arse to set up you have to fuck around with regex etc to get it working...one other option is to run the feeds through your feed burner account and change them to excerpts problem with that is you loose the images

    hi guys. Auto blog @ hxxp//allthatgadget.com

    I haven't done much for the past few weeks with my auto blog I did minor submittion my blog to Social Bookmaking sites (digg and stumbleupon). My current traffic is 100+ visitors / day. So far, only made $4 out of that. This kinda suck. Probably tech topic is drying.

    Now I do have sometime to screw around with it, but absolutely stuck on editing the YouTube related Videos part. Can some one show me how to increase number of youtube videos, and how to customize them? Really appreaciated.

    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Want my theme, treat me a coffee and I will send it to you :p

    Mine is about 85% done I think. Thanks a lot guys I learned a lot this week!

    Code:
    http://nakedcookie.simplybestonlineproducts.com/
    todo:
    Add feedburner
    Change layout of youtubeplugin (I like how technicnews dpoes the youtube videos, changing the size bigger..)
    Add Google Privacy policy so adsense stays up
    Figure out how techhuck makes that bottom arrow (the one that goes top) float at bottom
    Add Languages

    Thanks for all the info, I've been following this thread the last couple of days and learned a ton. I'm 3 days into this website venture(complete newbie) so this question might seem easy. @Specopkirbs. Within the post, where the feed is linking back to the original source, how do you customize that text? Originally, it just duplicates the post title, but i see on your site as well as techchuck, you guys have customize the text to say the name of the source, i.e. Read the whole story on Engadget

    mashget.com doesn't use a custom theme by the way...it uses a free theme which you can download here:

    I am having issues getting the twitter part to work in a different theme...it works in the elegantbox theme, but when I try using Massive News, the tagsname doesn't work...it calls nothing! I am not sure it is to do with the api as it still work in the other theme. So the question is what is it about the elegant box theme that allows it to call:
    Code:
    <?=$tagname ?>

    Your sidebar code is supposed to look something like this
    Code:
    <!-- sidebar START -->
    <div id="sidebar">
        <div id="sidebar-body">
            <!-- showcase -->
            <?php if( $options['showcase_content'] && (
                ($options['showcase_registered'] && $user_ID) || 
                ($options['showcase_commentator'] && !$user_ID && isset($_COOKIE['comment_author_'.COOKIEHASH])) || 
                ($options['showcase_visitor'] && !$user_ID && !isset($_COOKIE['comment_author_'.COOKIEHASH]))
            ) ) : ?>
                <div class="widget">
                    <div class="box">
                        <?php echo($options['showcase_content']); ?>
                    </div>
                </div>
            <?php endif; ?>
    
            <ul id="widgets">
    
    <?php if ( !function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') || !dynamic_sidebar() ) : ?>
                
    <?php endif; ?>
            </ul>
    
            <!-- showcase 2 -->
            <?php if( $options['showcase_2_content'] && (
                ($options['showcase_2_registered'] && $user_ID) || 
                ($options['showcase_2_commentator'] && !$user_ID && isset($_COOKIE['comment_author_'.COOKIEHASH])) || 
                ($options['showcase_2_visitor'] && !$user_ID && !isset($_COOKIE['comment_author_'.COOKIEHASH]))
            ) ) : ?>
                <div class="widget showcase_2">
                    <div class="box">
                        <?php echo($options['showcase_2_content']); ?>
                    </div>
                </div>
            <?php endif; ?>
    
        </div>
    </div>
    <!-- sidebar END -->
    If its different just hit me up with the scripting
