    i don't really get the first question so make it like you ask him, i'll only copy/paste

    2nd hmmm i really doubt he will share it and i'm not sure if i even should ask him to do such a thing. I haven't built any trust with this guy, we just exchanged a couple of emails so i'm afraid this would damage the "relationship" at this point.

    They will soon relese WOM 1.5 and i bet it will pretty much outrun any custom coding this guy had set up plus i have a feeling that it will be so great that they might start charging people for it or even worst Google policy might change over night and mass ban all blogs no wait...all internet! :pcguru:

    Thanks for this info step by step.
    My only problem is that my images link in post is directing to the old original image and not to one in cache folder, did i setup something wrong? I see your blog is directing to your own cache folder.

    Hey Guys I found this plugin - get the image - It does everything we need to post the thumbnail pic , well almost.
    1. Check for images by custom field key.
    2. If no image, grab an attachment image.
    3. If no attachments, scan the post content for an image (new feature).
    4. If no images at this point, the script can be set to a default.
    Its written with functions and arrays if anyone knows this stuff maybe you can change the last check for default call and call it to choose a random pic from a folder ie. w-o-m cache.

    I didn't contact the creator because he charges 25.00 to join his support forum.

    The TechChuck blog is a nice piece of work. I understand the main point of a true autoblog is to have a pretty bad looking site overloaded with ads to encourage visitors to clik on an ad to leave the page. While TechChuck is technically an autoblog, the site encourages the visitors to stay on the site and even bookmark the site for later use and you don't see an ad until you click on a post.

    My main question is which type of autoblog do you guys think will prosper more? How well do you think the TechChuck blog is doing?

    In fact it would be better if people would build high quality autoblogs then crappy ones. The blogs would attract more visitors, it would encourage them to return, to share them with others, bookmark them ETC.

    there are like 100k (just a number) of crappy AB all almost the same - all this equals tones of garbage

    if there were 100k of HIGH QUALITY AB (even with dupe content) even you would be more happy when using Google, I don't know about you guys but it becomes harder and harder to find the good stuff on google :)

    Plus Techchuck gets under the copyright radar because it leaves a link to the original site and also it says that it is only a content agregator

    For that youtube video bar insert this code between the " " ex: executeList : ["Insert code here"]

    This will display related videos for the first tag on your post.

    PHP:
    <?php $posttags get_the_tags(); 
    $count=0; if ($posttags
    { foreach(
    $posttags as $tag
    $count++; if (== $count
    { echo 
    $tag->name ' '; } } } ?>
    You can also download their css and js scripts and modify the bar/player abit.
    Ex. using that player with some modifications http://tech.ccortez.com/?p=577
