    I am having trouble with WP-o-Matic being unable to read my ebay RSS feeds. Anyone else who have experienced this issue and might have a solution?

    As a temporarily workaround I push the feeds from google reader but by doing this I have to login to google reader and share the contents to the feeds myself (might be a solution for that as well, but this is just a workaround so thats not really important).

    Had the same issue with feedwordpress and the others I have tried with. The funny thing is that the feed works like a charm with the simplepie demo. Could it be some sort of configuration issue on my side?

    Using WP 2.5.1 and I believe everything is up to date on the serverside

    Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

    i never used wp-o-matic.. but for reading rss feed, i always used rss reader script ( php ) and put it on the template page .. this way it's more flexible since you can tweak the output anyway you like..

    Just switched from google to feedburner and everything is working fine now, so I will probably leave it at this for now. Would still like to know why my WP-o-Matic couldnt fetch the feeds though.

    Home Page:
    u should try putting the feed in feedburner.com and then let the wp plugin point to that url instead of the original feed url. i had this problem b4 with feedwordpress and that solved it. can't remember which version of fwp it was though. just a suggestion.

    ***EDIT*** i see you already switched to feedburner. guess i should pay more attention to what i'm reading before i post, eh?

    Kurotenshi: sorry to jack your thread, but thought you might know where to get the rss feed for Ebay UK. I've tried it in the partnernetwork and it's just not showing, so opted for using someones Yahoo Pipes affiliate setup which uses the api, but the eventual feed once it comes out from Pipes, then goes through Feedburner, then goes through feedwordpress fails to update.
    Any help would be most appreciated

    Cheers

    to get the UK rss feed you need to goto the bottom of a search page and look for the following..

    "You are currently testing eBay's new search experience. If you prefer, you can opt out of the test."

    click that and opt out.... now do a search again and you will see the rss feed button...:)

    I have tried it with Feedburner as well but WP-O-Matic is still not fetching any posts, though they show up from the feed when I view them directly.

    I've had many problems with WP-O-Matic, especially duplicate post issues, which is not good for SEO. I recommend using Autoblogged they do a better job and I never had duplicate post issues.

    I think i found out why wp-o-matic doesnt work automatically with yahoo pipes.
    you need to go to your wp database in campaign_feed table and delete amp; in the rss url.

    so change the next url (yours may be different)

    Code:
    http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?_id=blabla&_render=rss
    to

    Code:
    http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?_id=blabla&_render=rss

    all you have to do now is thank me :p (REP is allowed)

    dude that doesnt matter I showed you how you can post from yahoo pipes, so you can use zozor method of getting content from ac, and other pages.

    I`ll wait for wp-o-matic 1.5.

    anyway i think its something like amazon datafeed.
