    well if you can see: each of his post has an icon on the extreme left or at the starting of the post title.
    this icon is indicatiopn from the story was pulled from.
    this guy has done such minute changes that it would take a long time to clone it.

    : sigh :

    but still i am catalogging every detail,
    will post here very soon !!

    If you want to display a favicon you have to save the content source somewhere. You can use extra fields but that table is going to become huge if you don't optimize your site. I would alter the wp_posts table.

    The harsh reality is that if you want to get serious about such websites you must learn PHP or live with 08/15 websites which hardly outshine the crowd.

    there are many websites popping up these days which do nothing else than pulling data from the yahoo api and other web 2.0 sites together. Google loves them and they are not that hard to make.

    I'm looking for a solution to this too, I want to display related videos based on post tags, I've googled around but couldn't find the right solution, unless if I pay $10 for the tubepress pro. Anyone got a solution, pls share?

    I applaud the OP for starting this awesome thread. It has made many of us stop, do what research we could, then come back here to get some knowledge gaps solved.

    I assembled the following plugins:
    • google sitemap generator
    • headspace2 (instead of All in One SEO
    • Nextgen gallery
    • simplepie core (recommended by wp-o-matic)
    • wp-more-feeds
    • wp-o-matic
    • wp-widget-cache
    • wp23rp
    • postfilter
    • recent tags

    Why do you care so much about using the same theme as he does, specobkirbs? I think it's more about mirroring the functionalities and stuff (which you've already done it seems).... in what theme you put it doesn't really matter that much after that IMO... I've simply used Fresh News for a similar blog and looks good.
