    Okay, so I just installed WP-O-Matic on my blog, but whenever I enter a feed into the campaign, it never stays but always disappears. And whenever I fetch, it never gets anything. Help?

    The RSS Feed url I'm using is:

    Code:
    [FONT=monospace]http://ezinearticles.com/rss/Health-and-Fitness-Weight-Loss.xml
    
    [/FONT]

    It might have something to do with the feed you're using, or the fact that you'r expecting it to start from scratch every time you're calling it ...

    I looked at the ezinearticles feed you mentioned and noticed it contains only summaries, and it contains more than 20 headlines.

    When I was testing WP-O-Matic, I found it helpful to look for a bunch of full feeds. Then I would add them one at a time between tests. If I got too many posts in a campaign-test, I would either delete them all or create a new campaign to test.

    Try http://blogsearch.google.com and enter the keyword(s) you're interested in.

    For example, I looked up "runner's high" and found these full feeds:

    http://stillwaitingfortherunnershigh.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default
    http://champagnemouli.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default
    http://feeds2.feedburner.com/adamsthing/GAfW
    http://therattakesthecheese.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default

    That's just a sample. I'd say figure out your fitness categories and search for full feeds that fit. I'm sure you'll find more than you know what to do with.
