    Hi, I need to find out what plugin will pull RSS feeds from yahoo answers and automatically post them to my blog? Also, I saw a guys blog somewhere on here that had a plugin that automatically pulled relevant images and posted them to his blog (within an automatic article/written content post that it pulled from RSS) - what plugin is this?

    Thank you!

    CC pulls the posts from YA and grabs 1 image for every post based on the same keyword.
    The image of course can be of topic if it was tagged wrong in the first place.

    Thank you for your answers, I downloaded and installed CC v.331, however it doesn't seem to be pulling from yahoo answers, as I ran it on two keywords and both came up as:

    No items found for (keyword)!
    (Perhaps the content source had a burp. To be sure, feel free to try again!)

    They were both pretty popular words and they do display results just using the simple wordpress RSS sidebar widget simply pointing to *http://answers.*yahoo.com/rss/searchq?p=keyword. Why isn't it getting feeds?

    Thank you!

    v3.35 is the most recent.


    This code seems to be a fix for problems with YA.

    Code:
    here is the solution to the problem i raised above":
    
    Find functions.inc.php inside the Caffeinated Content folder and edit the following:
    
    On line 905
    
    Code:
    
    $ques_url = f_fde258($appkey).$appid.'&query='.str_replace(" ", "%20", $keyword)."&results=$max&start=$start";
    
    
    Change to:
    
    Code:
    
    $ques_url = 'answers.yahooapis.com/AnswersService/V1/questionSearch?appid='.$appid.'&query='.str_replace(" ", "%20", $keyword)."&results=$max&start=$start";
    
    On line 906
    
    Code:
    
    $rss_file = "";
    
    
    Change to:
    
    Code:
    
    $rss_file = f_12d3d8($ques_url);
    I haven´t tried this since mine´s working.

    Thank you that worked great except how do you get rid of the spammy links it adds at the end of the post? Like "content for wordpress" "Create a video blog...instantly", etc?
    Also, is there any way to automate this (as in having it post so many per day in the future, not just the "auto aproove posts" checkbox) and future comments? Again - Thank you, Thank you , Thank you!!

    Thank you!

    I don't think there is any plugin to solve these problems for wordpress.

    Don't know if I get this right about your automation question but this is how I use it.

    Say, I want to have about 3 posts a day starting from today.

    I pull 90 answers from YA
    In the date fields I enter today as the start date
    As the end date I take 1 month from now

    Now CC will have 90 posts scheduled over a period of 30 days and will post about 3 a day (90/30)

    Most of the time I set a period of 4 months in the date fields and pull multiple keywords from YA.
    So for those keywords it's 4 months on autopilot.

    When I come up with some new keywords for that particular blog I adjust the dates and get more months on autopilot.

    You can make this as big as you want.
    You could take a posting period of a year and pull 1000s of answers, vids and articles all scheduled for the year.

    Just don't pull 100s in one go. CC might time out or YA might block you.
    When I need 500 posts I run the search 10 times with a setting of 50 a time.

    Caffeinated Content .. is a great plugins created by kansieo .. if you want to use it to a full capacity just buy this plugins from his site...

    hint: if you want to use a free version of CC and see it working, you can try the free Caffeinated Content for YACG .. but of course you should use yacg first for content generation.. ( i use it for one of my blog )...

    whats YACG - yahoo content generator or something? Also, as for my post above -

    What I was wondering is if there is any way to automate the comments so that they automatically appear more randomly over time.

    And, NOT how to delete the links that are the questions asker's name, but on the version of CC I have, it has a random link at the end of each yahoo answers question that says something spammy, but seems to link to nothing - i.e. when you scroll over it the address bar simply reads http:///?

    Thank you!

    Edit the Links > links.txt and links2.txt files to your preferred links.

    Yes, or you can remove the links at the end of the questions alltogether from the template.
