    I need a RSS aggregator, like feedwordpress.

    In the documention it says that it "syndicates content to your WP blog" as posts or pages into my blog.
    . But this doesnt WORK.

    I have an RSS URL, say Google News RSS

    http://news.google.com/news?q=jason wu&output=rss

    Now i go to FeedWordPress plugin and add this URL.

    But all it does is post ONE LINK on my side-bar like

    [​IMG]

    If i click on the link it geos to the Google NEWS page.

    Nothing is syndicated INTO my blog.

    WTF is going on?

    Edit: please explain to me how you setup feedwordpress so it gets RSS feeds and puts them as CONTENT on your blog.

    have you given the 'update feeds now' button a click yet? just a thought. i have used feedwordpress since it's early days and had few issues. i have however ran across some feeds that simply refuse to syndicate through feedwordpress. maybe try dropping in another feed.

    Have you been able to get images to show up in your posts? I'm trying to post from a feed that has img tags & embed tags, but instead all the < and > get stripped and I'm left with garbage.
