    OK, I've got my wordpress blog set up on 000webhost and installed wp-o-matic, among some other plugins. Basically, the problem is this: when I create a campaign and enter the feed urls, posts are made, but they're not full posts. It will usually be the first few sentences or so, and then"...". When I click on my post's title, it does the same thing on the post's actual page. Does anyone know what I could do differently to display the entire post from the feeds???

    Also, I'm drinking an RC Cola right now. I haven't seen one of these since I was a kid!

    I kind of had the same problem as you, except the ends of my posts were just this random HTML code of wierd .p"img links...weirdest thing ever. I think the reason that you are getting just the very beginning is because that's what the RSS feed is giving you. I read somewhere that BBC's RSS Feed worked the same way...it only gives short summaries, making it virtually useless.

    Anyway, hope I helped, enjoy your RC Cola lol.

    I research my feeds like I research my keywords. If I'm going to have content automatically add to my blogs I want to make sure I like he content.

    Yahoo groups and the linke can be excellent places to find quality feeds.

    I'll check out YG. Thanks for the suggestion. It's really frustrating when you're so close to something, but you've got this one little obstacle.

    A lot of rss-feeds only provide excerpts of the post. You have to search for feeds providing the full post in order to have complete posts pulled in by wp-o-matic.

    I've tried wp-o-matic and I wasn't a fan. The original author no longer seems to support it and has pretty much disappeared. Although it isn't as flexible, you may want to check out feedwordpress. You may need to re-install WP, but it works and is regularly updated. (Plus, you don't need to worry about crons. PM me if you have any questions.

    you need to make sure that the feeds you are pulling are full and not just summery
    of the content,

    use your browser and go to one of this feeds and see that its full description....
