    Im hoping someone can direct me to some sources for creating a bot.

    What i want to do is quite simple.

    I want it to copy some text from individual pages on a website, then create a post with it in a wordpress site, and link back to the original article. I'll probably want it to do more than that but for now thats all i need.

    Ive never considered creating my own bot before so i really have no idea where to start.

    Can any of you guys point me in the right direction?

    Ubot is a really great place to start if you have no experience coding. It can do everything that you want it to do plus a whole lot more. I am pretty sure after the first week of using it and doing some research you can build the tool you are looking for.

    This is actually pretty similar to what I'm doing with some of my adult porn auto-blogs, so I'm simply using PHP to build .rss file which I use to send to feedwordpress to feed the blog. I had to figure this out recently due to the loss of Yahoo Pipes coming up in September.
