    So I made an autoblog tonight. It needs a couple things fixed but we'll see how that goes. For my feeds I have the excerpt showing up on the homepage. The user clicks read more and they're brought to the post page but it's the exact same summary. Then there's no option to read more (as in read the entire post). So not sure what to do about that (should I just redirect them to where I'm pulling the feed from? And how would i automate that?).

    I have a pseudo idea of how to monetize it and I'll do that at a later point (once I get everything set up). But I can't set up a cron job on my server since it's free 000space hosting. Is there another (free) way to do a cron job???

    Finally, I have the duplicate post eraser but don't know how to set it up. Any ideas on that one??

    Here's the link

    i would change the theme.. kinda distracting.. There is nothing you can do about the summary. I assume the feed you are pulling from only gives a summary so your post is only going to contain a summary.

    There are some free cron job services on the net that will run scripts or monitor your site.

    And lastly the duplicate post eraser plugin is simple to use. Just activate it and when you publish a post that is a duplicate it will delete any other duplicates with the same title.

    I like the theme, I just downloaded it the other day. But I think it works better for video or picture posts. Yours looks too busy with all the words. I'd try a different one.
