    EDIT: Oh yeah- forgot to describe what it does. It takes an RSS summary feed, spiders the URLs and attempts to bring the whole story back for you

    I hope this is useful to some of you. It's a free script from here:
    http://fivefilters.org/content-only/
    ...but installation their way is a bit troublesome, so I've included the script here. It's just php files, so no virus check. And I haven't found anything naughty in the script.

    Installation:
    1) Upload to your server
    2) Make /cache/ directory writeable (CHMOD 777)

    Use:
    1) Either navigate to:
    http://yourdomain.com/full-text-rss/
    ...and add the feed in the box

    or (for automation):
    2) Add the path in front of the feed url so
    http://rssdomain.com/feed.xml
    ...becomes
    http://yourdomain.com/full-text-rss/makefulltextfeed.php?url=http://rssdomain.com/feed.xml

    IN USE:
    It only works some of the time. Some feeds work and others don't. Some are spiked with ads when you bring them back. At the very least, you usually get more of the feed. And some feeds it brings back all of every story.

    Have fun with it.

    I am interested to know how you got this to work. I found it earlier via the original website, and even went through the trouble of installing bazaar and sshing into my local server to set it up. I thought that the complicated procedure left plenty of room for my error, and gave up. I have since found this and set it down on my xampp server in htdocs. I can get the index form to show up but when I populate it I get nothing but depreciated simple pie errors.

    xampp 1.7.2 on vista... any suggestions?

    I didn't bother with bazaar...looked a bit involved. So I downloaded the files, with directory structure, and that's what's in the zip file.

    Just unzip, upload, CHMOD the /cache/ directory to 777 and you're good to go. Well you are on a standard LAMP setup anyway.

    I've done the above on several different servers now (all LAMP) and it just drops straight in. There might be some suggestions in the simplepie docs to adjust for your particular setup.

    I am a dipstick. Somehow an index.htm file from another site got in the zip. Delete that and all will work. Uploaded a new version without the errant file.

    This still working?? Looks like a good idea to try your feed out on the original site first and then use the script to keep pulling the RSS feed. Also does this post the fivefilters text links like the original website?

    Cheers
