    or you can try to turn any feed into a full feed. This works with most sites. http://www.wizardrss.com/

    Fresh, that program allows you to create a new full feed of whatever RSS you want, then you can use any RSS feed you'd like.. If you're autoblogging just put the custom rss feed url in.

    Jeah I had that problem too :p

    But you can change the rss.php to get this out of the post...

    After line 204 which is this:
    Code:
    if($fullcontent != "" && get_option('ma_rss_content')=='full') {$content = $fullcontent;} else {$content = $descr;}
    Put these lines and you will be left with only the | , you can try to change the code so it will delete this too but i'm a php noob and this was all I've got together :)

    Code:
    $content = str_replace("Powered by WizardRSS", "", $content); 
    $content = str_replace("Full Text RSS Feeds", "", $content);

    Yes I know what it does but I am looking specifically for a program or macro to find FULL RSS feeds based on some keywords.

    There are many reasons why I am only looking for full feeds. One of the reasons being we dont want to rely on a third party site where if that site goes down then so do our feeds. I dont like single points of failure

    Hey, I find a way around that, which is I use the rewrite feature in WP-o-Matic to replace the footer, and link it to any webpage of my choice.

    Using Autoblogged.

    After some testing the best method was to add "search and replace" (below post templates)

    search for:
    </div></div><br><br><center><a href="http://www.wizardrss.com"><b>Generated by WizardRSS</b></a> | <a href="http://www.wizardrss.com"><b>Full RSS Generator</b></a></center>

    replace with:


    This does leave the " | ", so I am open to ideas to remove that. Also, if you read the "source_description:" tag says "Powered by WizardRSS:" Not sure who can see that, but it doesn't need to be there.
    Has anyone gone to the trouble of installing the fivefilters open source code? If I am reading their site correctly, you can buy use on their servers (which is limited to 10 feeds for $10/mo ) or install the code and use their api to point to your hosting account.

    Thanks to everyone for helping.

    Thanks for hijacking my thread guys!

    I ended up developing my own robot that searches for full RSS feeds in results from Google's ajax API. Took a little work consuming the ajax api in managed code but int he end it is saving me a ton of time!

    lol, they totally hijacked your thread.

    How can you go about finding full rss? I know Google doesnt index rss files.

    But on another note: pretty much all blogspot blogs are full rss..

    I want to share it but right now its not just a simple app. It is a combo of winform, webform, and MSSQL DB. I am working on it further so where I can run the app and have a GUI where you can review the feeds and click a button to add it to word press!
