    Starting tomorrow, we will be doing an "Addon-A-Day" promotion to demonstrate how easy it is to enhance AutoBlogged. We will be creating one new addon every day for the next seven days.

    Tomorrow we will be creating an add-on that will allow you to not only create posts in WordPress but also push those posts to as many XMLRPC servers as you want.

    We are looking for suggestions and requests for other cool addons you would like to see. For example, integrating with external tagging API's, article translation, parsing special data from specific sites, etc.

    These addons are free, but you obviously need autoblogged (v2.8.2 or later which we will release tomorrow) to use them. If you want to buy a copy you can use coupon code bhw25 to get 25% off or I'm sure it won't take long for it to show up at the usual places.

    So any suggestions or requests?

    Okay and to make it more interesting, if we use your idea we'll give you a free AutoBlogged single site license.

    Hi "Autoblogged"

    My IDEA is: Make Autoblogged scrape news feeds, whatever language ,
    and let Autoblogged google translate them!


    Maybe this should work as an Add-on plugin?:)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I have a website, fanpage about a french filmstar, so many news are in french language. To manually translate each article is time consuming.

    Factum is,
    I Found that it´s easy to get higher placement in Google, with these
    translated articles, as there is not 1000 s of duplicates on web.

    Sounds good, that will be our next one, so I'll get you a free license.

    This is one of our biggest requests, but we have decided not to do it since there are so many other existing services such as wizardrss that already do it better.

    I'm not sure exactly what you are asking, but I think the one we are doing today will accomplish that, it will let you also post to any external xmlrpc blogging platform.

    Auto bookmarking would be better if it was done with an onlywire plugin, scraping IMDB would be too hard to finish in a day, but we''l do the Alchemy/OpenCalais one tomorrow.

    I'll IM you with your free license code.

    the plugins should check if the required plugins is active [v2.8] if the required is not active then the add on can't be active tell to activated the autoblogged...

    and the language source/target option should be in list option, so we doesn't need to change the language source/target via code.
    will the option/add on active in all feed,
    like feed 1, it get translated from English to France
    feed 2, from Indonesian to English
    feed 3, disable the translate....etc

    It's a while since I used autoblogged so my apologies when I don't remember everything correctly, but I basically stopped using it because:

    1. I would love to pull full RSS feeds, not just excerpts
    2. Yahoo pipes is great combined with autoblogged to get a nice mixture of different RSS feeds, but it is a lot of work and difficult to set yahoo pipes up (not sure how autoblogged can help with that though...)
    3. It would be great if it could also pull products from Amazon or Shopzilla or Clickbank

    Otherwise I found autoblogged much easier to use and easier to edit the templates than WP-Robot. I'm not using any autoblog plugin currently, so it would be great if autoblogged would be updated!

    We will add the v2.8 check, that's a good idea.

    As for the options, we have decided not to add option pages to the addons. However, we did put this on google code so anyone is welcome to develop on it.

    Actually I just realized there's no need to check version or if autoblogged is even installed, because if it isn't the api hook will never be triggered.

    I'd like to see the "Post Type" options expanded. Its cool that you have added pages, I would like to be able to select a page as parent, that way you could let it run without using the pending option and have to go back a edit each page. You would end up with a nice drop menu of your pages

    Regards, JJ

    getting this error while activated the plugins if ab-translate is active
    Code:
    The plugin generated 3 characters of [B]unexpected output[/B]  during activation.  If you notice "headers already sent" messages,  problems with syndication feeds or other issues, try deactivating or  removing this plugin.
    if activated the tagging first... then the translate

    Code:
    Warning:  Cannot modify header information - headers already sent  by (output started at ***\wp-content\plugins\ab-tagging\ab-tagging.php:1)  in ***\wp-includes\pluggable.php on line 897
    
    found the culprit
    Code:
    ly <?php

    Some random ideas floating around in my head (my apologies if they were suggested already or the functionality exists...also I do know that other plugins exist for this already, but it would be nice to have autoblogged be a one-solution-for-all-things-autoblogged):

    -- Randomize ad insertion: To avoid ad blindness, randomize the insertion of ads by choosing from [for example] top of post, below post, middle of post, floating right, left floating, etc. This is normally dealt with by other plugins, I know.

    -- Automatically add <!--more--> after X characters to split posts and cut down on front page clutter

    -- External link remover

    Yeah, a lot of these exist already, but as I said it would be cool of autoblogged was a solution for all autoblogged matters.

    hey
    darkdk,

    autoblogged can randomly select from different templates

    using

    <!--templates-->

    inbetween different html

    ex:

    <p>%title</p>
    html for ad1

    <!--template-->

    <p>%title%</p>
    html for ad2
