    I'm not sure what exactly wordpress.com use but I think it is some kind of feed aggregator. One feed aggregator/parser I used before is simplepie.org
    Hope this helps or gives you some direction.

    Yes it does. If you use the demo and input an rss, you will see that it will be able to parse the rss. If you look into the documentation, you can parse the title, date and description (you may set the lendth). I also want to know if there's any better aggregator than this but seems like no one else in BHW is responding.

    You can use Yahoo Pipes to aggregate feeds from all blogs and then use a RSS in Page WordPress plugin to show in a page of your main site. Check this tutorial: blogtips . org/how-to-combine-rss-feeds-with-yahoo-pipes/

    I have done it for one of my friends, so I am sure it works.
