    Hey Guys,

    I am wanting to start a directory and was wanting to know if anyone knew a good way to take listings from other sites and quickly upload them onto your own site without having to do the manual labour as it were.

    I just want to get a hundred or so listings to make it look more popular in the early days.

    I am using directorypress theme for wordpress if that helps.

    Cheers and I hope you've all had good weekends :~)

    I thought DirectoryPress had a DMOZ importer built in?
