    Hello guys, we got a niche running WPRobot but since we have some problems with the rss owners, we decided to link the articles directly to their original posts.
    At this time, the posts are being shown at our main index and when a user clicks on an post, he is being driven to the re-posted article (wordpress uses single.php just like normal to output this).

    We want to do a change there, and when the user clicks on the post of the main page we want him to be driven to the original posts' url.
    So, no single.php will be used, and re-posted content visibility will be hidden in this way.

    Actually we want every post generated by wp-robot has its own external permalink, directly to the original post.

    I had a look at wprobot's rss.php inside modules folder, but i cant find out what changes i must do in order to achive this.. i Guess this is easy and i am so php-newbie to do this.

    Can someone give a bit help here?
    Appreciate your replies, thank you!

    In options scroll down to rss options and the drop down there will let you pull excerpt or full article if available.
    In templates scroll down to rss template and you should see {source} which is link to original.
    When setting up feed or campaign you can add common tags (at right) under/over what tags are already there.

    Not sure but sounds like your theme shows recent post > click to it's page > click to original?

    At the campains template there is no shortcode for the original link of the grabbed rss.

    All i want is to replace the {rsstitle}'s url with the original url of the post and not my inbound url.

    Any ideas? thanks for the reply!
