FeedWordPress

FeedWordPress is an open-source Atom/RSS aggregator for the WordPress blog publishing platform. You set up feeds that you choose, and FeedWordPress syndicates posts from those sources into your WordPress posts table, where they can be displayed by your WordPress templates like any other post — but with additional meta-data, so that your templates can properly attribute the post to the source it came from.

FeedWordPress was originally developed because I needed a more flexible replacement for Planet to use at Feminist Blogs. You can use FeedWordPress to create aggregator (Planet) sites that bring together posts from many different sources, using the WordPress templating engine to display posts from all around the web. Or you can use it to bring together all your online activity from your blog, Twitter, Flickr, or other online services, into a Lifestream with all your online activity in one place.

FeedWordPress is designed with flexibility, ease of use, and ease of configuration in mind. You’ll need a working installation of WordPress or WordPress MU (version 3.0 or later), and also FTP or SFTP access to your web host. You don’t need to tweak any plain-text configuration files and you don’t need access to shell or crontab on your web host to make it work. (Although, I should mention, web hosts that don’t offer shell access and cron jobs are bad web hosts.)

    • Thanks for the fix! It’s working as expected now. But there’s another problem.

      The individual category page returns a ‘No results’ message. Once this plugin is disabled, it shows all the posts in that category again.

      Thanks.

      Scott.

  1. Thank you for this great plugin! I have one problem if you take a look at http://teaterbaest.dk/blog/ you can see that the danish characters are replaced by their hex code equivilant eg å is shown as å. The danish characters show up fine in the text of the post. Is there anyway to fix this? I will gladly buy you some coffee for yor help :)

  2. Hi Veki,

    Sorry to hear you ran into this problem. Would you be willing to send me some screen shots to help me figure out what’s going on?

    If so, the following screenshots from your WordPress administration interface would help me out a lot:

    1. A screen shot that shows what it looks like when you are at the Syndicated Sites list;

    2. A screen shot that shows what it looks like when you bring up the Links page in your WordPress admin interface (if this requires scrolling down multiple screens, a series of screen shots showing the whole contents would be most helpful);

    3. A screen shot that shows what it looks like when you go to the Links –> Categories page in your WordPress admin interface; and

    4. A screen shot that shows what it looks like when you go to the Syndication –> Feeds & Updates page in the WordPress admin interface.

    If you can produce these, and send them along to me via e-mail at veki.to.feedback@radgeek.com (the bit at the front is to make sure that the e-mail gets routed properly), I would be much obliged, and would be glad to do what I can to try and help you out.

  3. I have a custom field called “thumbnail” and I would like to set the thumbnail from the incoming RSS – I am importing http://www.cinema.de/kino/neu-im-kino/rss.xml and there are media files (the picture) included – so, what do I have to type in this custom field thumbnail, to have the source from the rss? please help! or is there any other way to show the delivered photos in the auto-created posts?

  4. Björn,

    This is a good catch, and an excellent fix. Thank you! The fix has been incorporated into the Development Version of FeedWordPress, and will be part of the next public release.

  5. Parker,

    What version of FeedWordPress are you using?

    I believe that older versions of FeedWordPress had this problem, but that recent public releases include a fix to it. You should be able to solve the problem just by upgrading to the latest version of FeedWordPress.

    Let me know if this works for you. Hope this helps.

  6. No sure what is happening but have I done something? Suddenly I have no permalinks left for my imported posts! Any ideas…?? Many thanks.

  7. Hi, some of the blogs uses remote link protect. How can I get images to my localhost automaticly from syndicated sites. Thanks Emre

  8. Tiger,

    Thanks for the heads-up here is a quick summary of what we’ve discussed in our e-mail conversation after I contacted you for more information about the problem you were encountering. I’m posting it here for others’ reference.

    Based on our e-mail conversation, in which you provided more information about the filename and line numbers associated with this PHP warning, I determined that the PHP notice you were seeing about strtolower() is the result of an unchecked call to strtolower in a method that checks settings on syndicated links. The unchecked call is harmless — in the situations that trigger the notice, all the tests still go the way that they ought to go given the circumstances — but in order to avoid the notice, for people who have that level of PHP notification turned on, I have committed a fix to the Development Version of FeedWordPress which eliminates the unchecked call and hence should eliminate the PHP notice as well. This fix will be included in the next public release of FeedWordPress.

  9. Great idea for a plugin but sadly I’m having some issues

    When importing feeds and then checking them in my posts

    if I click on preview I get a error message

    strtolower() expects parameter 1 to be string

    everytime

    any ideas why?

  10. I’m experiencing problems with FeedWordPress and my feeds at Delicious.
    It’s not importing new items since 10 day and when I update manually it doesn’t see the new items and the status in the Syndication page is “10 days ago Ready for next update 10 days ago”.

    I upgraded the plugin to the latest version (2010.0127) and accepted the MagpieRSS but it didn’t help.
    I was on an older WordPress so I thought that was the problem and went all the way to 2.9.2. Also, no luck.
    I even tried to remove FeedWordPress and to downgrade it by installing an older version to no avail.

    From what little I’ve understood, FeedWordPress doesn’t like some of the previously perfectly fine feeds. Feeds from Flickr are ok but those from Delicious and from Yahoo! Pipes are seen as if they weren’t valid and I get an “Error: FeedWordPress couldn’t find any feeds at (url of the feed). Try another url.” After many tries I also got this error

    Diagnostic information
    HTTP request completed
    Status 999:
    HTTP Transports available:wp_http_curl

    Any ideas about what’s happening?

    Thanks in advance

  11. I’d love to use this plugin, it sounds like just what I’m looking for to add to several sites, however I can’t get past these errors.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    The first feed I tried was: http://ezinearticles.com/rss/Computers-and-Technology-Certification-Tests.xml

    the errors I got were: Warning: gzuncompress() [function.gzuncompress]: data error in /home/simply/public_html/wordpress/wp-includes/http.php on line 1824

    Error: FeedWordPress couldn’t find any feeds at http://ezinearticles.com/rss/Computers-and-Technology-Certification-Tests.xml. Try another URL.

    this next feed I tried only gave me 1 error:

    http://www.microsoft.com/canada/technet/rss/homepage/SubsidiaryMessagingEN_CA.xml

    The error I got was:

    Error: FeedWordPress couldn’t find any feeds at http://www.microsoft.com/canada/technet/rss/homepage/SubsidiaryMessagingEN_CA.xml. Try another URL.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

  13. hi ,great plugin when I try to load this feed http://feeds.feedburner.com/SAPNetworkWeblogs just bring me some records, only records sometimes 1, sometimes 5, but not all, can help solve this problem?

    host : hostgator blog : sap.mn2i.com php website : version 0.10.2 wordpress version 2.8.6 i migrate to 2.9.1 buy say me the same error.

    thank you for your help

  14. Hi Radgeek. After your last upgrade it all went bad. I can go as far as adding a new feed but when I update checked it says 0 post and 0 updates were syndicated. My other site that I have not updated the plugin yet works fine on version (2009.1112)

    After deleting and reinstalling the plugin no dice and now when feedwordpress is activated I get this error message when I click on the Pages from the admin: Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 80 bytes) in ?xxxxx/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 958… When I deactivate feedwordpress the error dose not occur.

  15. Hello,

    I’m having trouble getting FWP to add a feed. I’ve tried to add:

    http://feed.linksynergy.com/promo.rss?promoid=1352&token=8fd36a79ab449b05c80d9d308c43ff642507584f7c5009ff607e514753162ec6

    but get:

    Diagnostic information
    HTTP request completed
    Status 200: OK. FeedWordPress had no problems retrieving the content at this URL but the content does not seem to be a feed, and does not seem to include links to any feeds.

    HTTP Transports available:
    1.WPHttpCurl

    Any suggestions?

  16. I love this plugin, but I believe it’s not PHP5.3 compatible yet? It was working fine, but when my host updated from PHP5.2 to 5.3, I was greeted by a blank page. After some trouble-shooting, I was able to single out Feedwordpress as the only plugin that is giving me this error message:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected TNAMESPACE, expecting TSTRING in ~/wp-includes/rss.php on line 582

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  17. Prob 1 seems to have disappeared – what was I doing? no idea. As for the second this seems to work better and I ran a hack in the single.php file which gave the original url in case the post showed on its own but how can I get it to visit the permalink (syndication_permalink) in a new blank page instead of opening in the same page. Many thanks. Terrific plugin.

  18. on WPMU I found out that if I login as a regular member for a blog, settings for “New authors” shows all the list of members, I just modify the loop with this getusersof_blog(); and works fine now.

    also do you have any idea if I can limit or control the items that the feed will be import on my post, let say when I run the update for the feed, and if the rss feed link has 40 items, I want 10 items only to be import to my Post, then on the next update he will grab 11 to 20 and so on…

    is there any modification or tutorial that can show me how to limit the items that being import in my WP Post? thanks.

  19. Update: to work around this, disable javascript in your browser, enter the tags you want, then re-eanble javascript. The tags will not appear in admin when javascript is enabled, but they’ve been accepted and new posts will use them.

  20. I have the same problem. About two weeks ago I reported it on [[http://feedwordpress.radgeek.com/node/86/talk|this page]]. No response yet.

  21. Looks like your comment on the talk page was rejected or deleted; Talk page is empty for me.

    Real spotty this site; support seems to come and go with no consistency.

  22. Am using the latest FeedWordPress with WP v2.9.1 and for some reason, cannot add a custom tag to a feed’s articles.

    When I click on the field for “Tag all posts from this feed as…” the field text doesn’t disappear and manually editing the field and clicking Add, nothing happens. The current page url is rewritten, but nothing otherwise happens. Same for the “Choose from the most used tags in Post Tags” link; does nothing when it used to (i think).

    Is this a known issue?

    Also, is FeedWordPress in active development? Main article says it’s only compatible up to WP v2.8.4; seems to work fine in v2.9.1 but if FeedWordPress is abandoned, I’ll probably end up buying another solution.

  23. Updating Magpie resolved the add feed issues I was seeing.

    Apprently even with v2.9.1 WP still uses the old v0.5 magpie; FeedWordPress’s updated version of Magpie resolved this issue.

  24. Hello, today i found a bug in your plugin. In my blog it shows 5 entrys and the last was an entry of an imported feed. the entry was pointed to the original entry in the other blog. an in my sidebar on the right (!!) side, was a widget called “recent_comments” (standard). The links to the comments show at the other blog. To fix the problem you have to edit the “feedwordpress.php” in the plugin dir

    search:

    function syndication_permalink ($permalink = '') {
        if (get_option('feedwordpress_munge_permalink') != 'no'):
            $uri = get_syndication_permalink();
            return ((strlen($uri) > 0) ? $uri : $permalink);
        else:
            return $permalink;
        endif;
    } // function syndication_permalink ()
    

    and replace it with:

    function syndication_permalink ($permalink = '') {
        $id = url_to_postid($permalink);
        if (get_option('feedwordpress_munge_permalink') != 'no'):
            $uri = get_syndication_permalink($id);
            return ((strlen($uri) > 0) ? $uri : $permalink);
        else:
            return $permalink;
        endif;
    } // function syndication_permalink ()
    

    and now it works fine!

    i hope you understand my problem and solution.. in german, look here http://www.welt-held.de/1687-fehlerhafte-links-in-der-sidebar-bei-wordpress.html

  25. Hi – this will be a great plugin. Two problems:

    I’m using this with WP2.9.2 and every time it has imported some feeds it then seems to delete the feed address from the syndicated sources.

    Second, when editing the post the permalink shows the original article address (not feed)- as I set it up to do. When you click on the Preview it goes straight to the original article – good. But if you publish the post and then click on the title it goes only to a post. Why is it doing this?

    Thanks

  26. It seems FWP stopped working some days ago. I see a lot of feeds (also validated ones) stopped fetching. …

    I don’t know, im’ trying to figure out the problem… could 2.9 wordpress update change something?

    I run 2.9 wp release and the last FWP plugin release. 15 days ago all was fine with FWP.

    Now I’m trying with the newer magpie files (that ones provided by FWP) and with the default ones… it’s the same.

    Some feeds (valide or not) are not more parsed.

  27. I’d be happy to try and help you figure out what’s going on with this feed, but in order for me to do so I need more information. In particular, if you can provide me with the URL of the feed that you’re trying to syndicate (either in comments or via e-mail, whichever you prefer), I can take a look at it run some tests in order to figure out what the source of the problem is. Without the URL, all I know is that MagpieRSS is failing, for some reason or another, to successfully parse the feed. But there are various reasons why that might be happening. If you can provide the URL, hopefully I can narrow it down a bit.

  28. This is a great plugin when it works. Find it very fickle though!

    For example, a feed worked, I removed it from Feedpress, then latter re-added it, and now it doesn’t. The feed itself has not changed, it works fine in every RSS / Atom viewer i’ve tried… only Feedpress suddently decided that it was an “Unknown feed”

    Any ideas why?

    Also getting the same error message “Unknown feed” on other feeds that work just fine in every reader i’ve tried… is there a published list of what feed params Feedpress will accept or will not accept?

    Very important info, given Feedpress not accepting valid feeds kind of limits options.

  29. Where is the changelog for Feedwordpress? I cant find the 2009.1112 change log or what changed etc….

    Am I missing something?

  30. Hi. It all installed fine, and Magpie RSS upgraded with no problem. However, when I enter a URL into the ‘add new source’ field and press ‘syndicate’, the page tries to reload, goes blank (in the frame – the wordpress banner at the top and the various options at the side are there) and when I press ‘syndication’ again it isn’t added.

    Any ideas?

  31. Error: FeedWordPress couldn’t find any feeds at http://www.ibm.com/fscripts/search/opensearch/search.fcgi?en=utf&startIndex=1&q=oais&cc=us&lang=en&format=rss. Try another URL. Diagnostic information HTTP request completed

  32. hi there, Thanks for developing the plugin. I have an issue, currently all the syndicated posts have links adopting from the title. So when i have titles like – “Firefox For Android Compiled, Demoed On Milestone – You Can Too!” The – in the title causes the link to be http://crazyaboutphones.com/android-updates/firefox-for-android-compiled-demoed-on-milestone—you-can-too/ . As you might notice right after milestone ther is three — dashes. This of course returns a server error page as the link doesnt work .

    Another example is this title — “””T-mobile HD2 Available Online, But not in Stores…. Yet!!””” The multiple dots in the title again result in a url such as this http://crazyaboutphones.com/windows-phone/t-mobile-hd2-available-online-but-not-in-stores-…-yet/. Again three dots cause the same proble.

    How do i resolve this issue that is have the url’s or slugs not to have stop words or punctuation marks, is it possible?

    Thank You for your time Joseph

  33. I’m also looking for a way to pull the images down on the local server for my site.

    I’ve built a Flash front end that sits on a WP back end using FeedWordPress. But, I’m having trouble resizing images from the RSS feeds and having them stick. What I really need is a way to resize the images as they are being pulled in too.

  34. Hi,

    I’ve encounter the same problem on my wordpress (version 3.0.1) with plugin FeedWordPress (Version 2010.0905). After meddling around for a while, it appears that the syndicated sites list wasn’t really black. But rather, it roll up after clicking on the title “Syndicated Sources”. If click again, it appears. Click it again and it’ll be disappear.

    Just a note here so that if someone was as careless as me can try out this to make sure it ain’t a problem, but a feature. :)

  35. Hello, I am facing the same issue with the latest version of the plugin. The syndicated posts that have a hyphen – in the title are appended with two more hyphens — resulting in the browser not understanding the link and therefore crash.

    Please advise at the earliest if anyone is able to find the cure for this.

    Regards, Ashish

  36. Just find $this->namespace in your wp-include/rss.php , it should be twice (in my file version it is on lines 324 and 517 ) and change it to $this->namespace1.

    After this find string function namespace on the same file (i have it on line number 582) an change it to function namespace1.

    That’s it. Your WordPress and FeedWP go back to live.

  37. When upgrading the Magpie RSS code (via the “Upgrade”) button, I get a “syntax error, unexpected TNAMESPACE, expecting TSTRING” error pointing to line 582 in rss.php

    This thread made me think it was a reserved word issue. I changed namespace to handle_namespace throughout rss.php, and all was well.

    Running WPMU 2.8.2 on Ubuntu Jaunty; working in Firefox 3

    Let me know if there’s more info I can provide.

    -a.

  38. Just to confirm (because my line numbers seem to be slightly different from yours, for whatever reason), the problem was with the following method declaration in rss.php:

    // Namespace handling functions
    function namespace ($element) {
    

    … and it was iminated when you changed the name of the method to something other than namespace?

    If so, should be an easy fix to roll into the next release. Thanks for the heads-up!

  39. Great plugin, just started playing with it after realising a plugin I used to use no longer works with WordPress 2.8.6 and hasn’t been updated for well over a year.

    I’d like to use the name of a feed (which I’ll manually create) as part of the title of a syndicated post or use a custom bit of text for each theme to be added to the title of each post.

    So if a post is called:

    This is a great post

    And from a feed called:

    Feed One

    I get a title for the post:

    Feed One : This is a great post

    Got an example of what I’m trying to emulate (created by copying and pasting) [[http://www.votesprout.com/conservative-party-news-cameron-challenges-brown-over-recession]]

    Looking to add the 6 main UK political parties news via your plugin, but out the box it doesn’t distinguish which party the news comes from since the news source doesn’t have the party name in the title (the title of the above example is “Cameron Challenges Brown Over Recession”). I want to enhance the titles preferably prior to adding them to the database.

    I found the add attribution module and that’s helped a lot, I have a test category with 50 test pages (from one feed) added by your plugin and it’s really close to what I want (see the Test category on the site above, though it won’t be up long).

    However, when I added a custom feed setting called libdem with value “Liberal Democrats Party News : ” and under the add attributes options added [feed-setting key="libdem"] before the title it added the ‘name of the feed’ (the custom text above) where I want it, but also messes with my Recent Articles widget.

    When on a page created with the plugin (everything under the Test cat) all the pages linked under the Recent Articles widget add the anchor text “Liberal Democrats Party News :” whether it’s from that feed or not. When on a page not created by the plugin the pages I’d like to have the custom text lack it (I can live with that).

    Interestingly my Most Popular Posts widget (created using another plugin) and Recent Comments widget (created with custom template code) are not affected ether way.

    Any thoughts on achieving what I want without messing up my Recent Articles anchor text? Ideal solution would be to add the text to the post as it’s added to the database, so the permalinks slug includes that text as well (so if I removed the plugin it would still be – “Feed One : This is a great post”.

    Happy to edit the plugin code to get this working, but not sure where to start.

    David

  40. I’d like to suggest an enhancement that I believe should be pretty easy to do and many people would like it. I’d like to see options to turn off updating of various fields for posts that feedwordpress has already posted in our blogs. The thing that I feel is the most important is being able to turn off updates to categories and tags. Those of us that have auto category and/or tag creation turned on typically go into the posts to clean up the tags and/or categories. The next time the feed updates, though, those changes get overwritten.

    I think it would also be very good to be able to turn off updating the post excerpt. Probably quite a few of us periodically update the excerpt text and that gets overwritten as well at the next update.

    It might be nice to have a few other options as well. So the settings screen might look like this:

    Turn off updating of existing posts:
    [ ] Title
    [ ] Author
    [ ] Excerpt
    [ ] Post Body
    [ ] Date/Time
    [ ] Categories
    [ ] Tags
    

  41. Could you please add a one line change to the plugin to prevent the post excerpt from duplicating the content? I am using some feeds that set the excerpt (RSS “Description”) to the exact same thing as the main content of the article. On WordPress pages that are supposed to display only the excerpt, the entire post gets displayed instead. This looks terrible and wastes some disk space.

    So I would propose the following fix that I’ve made be included in the next version update of this plugin. The fix won’t harm anything else, regardless of whether these types of feeds are being used or not.

    in function SyndicatedPost in syndicatedpost.class.php please replace this line: [code]if ( isset($this->item['description']) and $this->item['description'] ) :[/code]

    with this one: [code]if ( isset($this->item['description']) and $this->item['description'] and $this->item['description'] != $content ) : [/code]

    Thanks so much for this and for providing such a great plugin!

  42. I`m using wordpress 2.7 and im getting strange uitput in the feedwordpress feeds “br” someone know how to fix this?

    Example:

    Veel vrouwen denken echter dat mannen lange benen verkiezen. br /br /Goede gezondheid br /Deze resultaten verrasten de onderzoekers. “Lange benen worden geassocieerd met een

  43. I have an aggregator feed and I use this great plugin! But now I have a problem: Yesterday, I deleted some old posts because the space available in my server was poor. Today, I have notice that deleted posts returned. Please help me! In a few days I’ll finish my space in the server! How I can resolve this problem?

  44. niska,

    Man, that was fast! Looks like you got in between the time I uploaded the update and the time I announced it on the blog. Anyway, if you check out the announcement post, that has a list of the significant changes. (Briefly, the most important changes include a shift to SimplePie for feed parsing, some new features, a couple of important bug fixes and parsing improvements, and — a potential block, if you haven’t updated your installation of WordPress in the past couple years — the shift to SimplePie has led me to drop support for WordPress 1.5 – 2.7.)

    Hope this helps!

  45. Thanks for the update!

    However, I’m unable to find a changelog. Is it possible to find out what has changed since the last update?

  46. I use WP 2.9.2 I had the plugin installed on my site but today I saw a blank page when I tried to access any page. I opened error_log and saw feedwordpress triggered a fatal error.

    I deleted it and everything was fine with my site. I downloaded the plugin again, tried to install it but:

    “Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.” Do you know which could be the problem?

  47. I’m using FeedWordPress 2010.0127. All my feeds from WordPress.com suddenly got the title included in the syndicationsourceoriginal and syndication_source. I discovered this yesterday – I’m not sure how long this has happening. But I think WordPress must have changed something in their RSS-feeds (my guess).

    Example:

    This blog post: http://dingdongthatsthesong.wordpress.com/2010/04/12/conan-obrien-to-do-a-late-night-show-on-tbs/

    syndicationsourceoriginal = Ding Dong! That’s the Song! » Conan O’Brien to do a Late Night Show on TBS

    syndication_source = Ding Dong! That’s the Song! » Conan O’Brien to do a Late Night Show on TBS

    should be

    syndicationsourceoriginal = Ding Dong! That’s the Song!

    syndication_source = Ding Dong! That’s the Song!

    If possible, please post an update fixing this issue! Thanks.

    I’m using WordPress 2.9.2.

  48. I’d like to be able to import a frequently updated feed of short items (like Facebook Links posts) as a single daily digest post, rather than having one new post per RSS item. Would this be difficult to add?

    RSS Digest used to offer this functionality, but it’s not working with the newest version of WP, and development seems stalled or dead…

  49. Anand,

    There is almost certainly a way to do what you’re trying to do; the best way to do it is going to depend on some details about what’s on the feed you’re trying to syndicate. Could you give me the URL of the feed you’re getting these results from, so I can take a look at it and run a couple of quick tests?

  50. Hi,

    I noticed to day that some feeds at http://www.myelomablogs.org are pulled and added to the database as if they were internal posts and not external sources.

    Examples:

    1. Correctly inserted feed as the text “originaly posted at” [something]
      In single page view title and read more link point to external source link
      General listing: http://www.myelomablogs.org/2010/05/05/wednesday-morning-and-i-have-energy/
      Single view: http://managingmyeloma.blogspot.com/2010/05/wednesday-morning-and-i-have-energy.html
    2. Incorrectly inserted feed as the text for internal posts “this is a notice from MyelomaBlogs Planet”
      In single page view title and read more link point to internal post link
      General listing: http://www.myelomablogs.org/2010/05/05/wellness-wednesdays-3/
      Single view: http://www.myelomablogs.org/2010/05/05/wellness-wednesdays-3/

    This has already more than 1300 posts ;(

    HELP!

  51. My issue is solved.

    1. Turn your blog under maintenance using the http://sw-guide.de/wordpress/plugins/maintenance-mode/ plugin
    2. Turn ON the debug of FeedWordpress and goto syndication and run an update. It may break it with an error message from another plugin.

    In my case I upgraded Shorten2Ping and changed the shortening service from Cli.gs to J.mp (Facebook and other were complaining that Cli.gs is a malware site) and that move started to give me a PHP warning just after FWP processes the title and the content of a feeded post, i.e. FWP never got the rest of the data from feed.

    I changed to Is.Gd and that bug on Shorten2Ping was bypassed (although it is still there) and all is ok now on my side.

    This cost me a night’s sleep.

    Hope it may help you.

  52. I have 300+ feeds that I’m watching using FWP. I’ve this setting enabled: “Unfamiliar categories: don’t create new categories or tags”.

    I’ve now manually added 50 tags to my blog. But new posts doesn’t get these tags, even though they match.

  53. Hi, Ok we’ve encountered some issue. The process was working perfectly but we had to update the password to our password protected feed that we were grabbing updates from. Ever since then the plugin hasn’t been able to poll the rss feed for updates.

    We’ve tried uninstalling Feedwordpress, reinstalling. Uninstalling all other plugins leaving only Feedwordpress. We’ve updated the RSS.php file and rss functions to the one included in the installation. We’ve tried changing the category & tag settings to tags only (read that fixed someone who had a similar issue). We’ve tried everything short of uninstalling WordPress – which we can’t do because we have nearly 4,000 articles indexed by Google News.

    My partners tried FeedWordPress on an alternate installation of WordPress and it works there. But, that does nothing for me. I need it to work on my installation.

    Any help would be appreciated. =)

  54. I get the following error after upgrading to the new version of feed WordPress Fatal error: Class ‘SimplePieContentType_Sniffer’ not found in (some url content removed) /wp-content/plugins/feedwordpress/feedwordpress-content-type-sniffer.class.php on line 2

    The old version worked fine, I’ve tried installing simplepie core and a plugin but still have the error.. HELP

    Thanks Mark

  55. I want to show a link to the original source along with the syndicated content so that I can give the permalink to my site local post itself whereas the visitors can read the original full post in a new window by clicking the link. I request you to help me in this.

  56. I have the following feed http://spreadsheets.google.com/feeds/list/tI-nz9ZZQDt6dtLjVntemZA/od6/public/basic?alt=rss that feedwordpress does not seem to like. I get the following

    Diagnostic information

    HTTP request completed

    Status 406: Not Acceptable

    HTTP Transports available:

    WPHttpCurl

    My solution is to pass the feed to Friendfeed and then pass Friendfeed’s RSS to feedwordpress- this works but only the titles come through. Any thoughts

    Thanks!

  57. Hi, I use yahoo pipes to calculate data on a daily basis, but when I syndicate (even though I change title, description, and date) the single-post rss acts as an update rather than a new post. What data in the RSS feed do I need to make unique so that the post will be considered unique and add a new post, rather than update my old post?

  58. LoveGaming,

    You need to make sure that the guid element (in an RSS 2.0 feed; or the id element in an Atom feed) is unique for each item that you want to be considered as a new post. As long as a guid or an id element is available, all of FeedWordPress’s post identity checking will be based on that field.

    Hope this helps!

  59. Hi Rad, I implemented what you said, however, a knew problem has arisen. I added a new stream with GUI, but it treated it as an update still, and I looked into my database and even though I had deleted the old post and cleared cache, I still have a huge database of revisions which seems is preserved to make my new post act like an update. Is it a bug that all these revisions aren’t deleted and what can I do about it?

  60. Hi, I updated Feedwordpress (from 2008.1101 to the last version, with WP 2.9.2) and it’s no longer able to syndicate Yahoo pipes feed.

    It seems that FeedWordpress doesn’t recognize it as a feed: http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?id=824f5eca95dabca68aec6682e911a1ae&render=rss

    Error message on update :

    "Feed error: XML error: Undeclared entity error at line 5, column 665
    Update complete. 0 new posts were syndicated and 0 existing posts were updated"

    I’ve been syndicating this feed for some times with previous FeedWordpress versions without any problems

  61. Hello I am using your plugin and love its ease and functionality. However I am trying to get it so the excerpt doesn’t auto generate because I want them to be all 20 words long. I noticed that every post has a auto generated excerpt for it and I think wordpress uses that excerpt instead of the first 20 words. So my question to you is . Is there a way to get rid of that functionality? I am comfortable editing PHP so If it comes to that I am willing to try. Thanks in advance, Aaron

  62. Hi, your plug in feedwordpress is awesome. Its powerful and its what I have searched for! There is just one (legal) thing. I operate my blog from Germany. because of that I have to respect the local copyright rules there. So I would like to syndicate the feeds just without photos. Is that possible anyhow?

  63. Thanks for a great plugin!

    In looking at my blog today, I noticed that I have several duplicate posts across a few different feeds.

    Tell me, what is the best way that I can prevent duplicate posts?

    Best, John T.

  64. HI! Thanks for your plugin Really gorgious… I have a small issue. We are syndacting some blogs in italian and somehow for two of them special characters are shown on the related syndacated posts. See for example the article “Gli 8 pilastri del keyword advertising” here: http://web2.hoepli.it/ The strange thing is that there seems not to be italian special characters, but some other stuff created by the wordpress editor…

    Any hints?

    Thanks in advance, Luigi

  65. I’m using:

    “You are using WordPress 3.0.5.”

    And when I activate the plugin I get:

    “Fatal error: Class ‘SimplePieContentTypeSniffer’ not found in /home/only4po/publichtml/bangbangbabes/wp-content/plugins/feedwordpress/feedwordpress-content-type-sniffer.class.php on line 4″

  66. Hi,

    Really cant get this to work. cURL is running, but everytime I try to get this up and running I get the following errors:

    No idea how to solve and can not find help anywhere. Many Thanks for your time in advance.

  67. Hi,

    After deleting older posts retrieved via syndication (feedwordpress), I am noticing that the posts end up coming right back on the next update. Is there a way to keep the plugin from restoring deleted posts?

    Thanks, Paul

  68. Any feeds with html code removes the “< >” so for example. < b >SUBHEADING< /b > shows up as bSUBHEADING/b

    Anyway to fix this? This plugin would work perfectly for me otherwise.

  69. hi, i have a problem of memory usage. after 3-4 days that i use feedwordpress i have an error of memory usage (it go over 64MB)

    i know that the problem is all the RSS…. record in wpoption

    don’t know what is the utility of all these record, but is it possible disable to write in database?

  70. hi, i have a suggest for this nice plugin.

    there is no option to truncate syndacated post.

    any idea on this? are you working on this?

    ty

  71. how can i change the time from an update at another? it show me 60min, i want change it but can’t find the option to di it.

    another problem: why in my syndacate list it show me:

    51 minuti ago
    Ready for next update every 60 minutes
    33 minuti ago
    Ready for next update 2 minuti from now
    

    why 1 feed is update each 60min and another a random time..

  72. Hi Daemon,

    Thanks for writing, and for the kind words.

    Could I get the URL of the feed where you are getting 1969 dates? If I can run it through my test servers, I should be able to identify the problem and hopefully include a fix in the next release. You can drop it here, or privately through the contact form.

    Thanks,
    -C

  73. Hello,

    Great plugin, however when I tried to use it on some feed the post date and year on the aggregated content was set to December 31, 1969. But only that feed, the others worked just fine.

  74. Tell me, is it possible to have an email sent to a specific user when a new post is imported to the blog from a feed?

    (Especially if this post is added as draft status – and needs to be reviewed before publishing)

  75. Thanks for a great plugin!

    In looking at my blog today, I noticed that I have several duplicate posts across a few different feeds.

    Tell me, what is the best way that I can prevent duplicate posts?

    Best, John T.

  76. hi, i don’t understand how work the automatic update system.

    first… many feed have this write: “Ready for next update every 60 minutes” (how can i change from 60min at another time?)

    second… with no reason other feed have : “Ready for next update 20 minuti from now” (the number is random)

    why we have 2 type? how work the entire update system? i can’t understand and no guide to explain it.

    ty, i am sure you will answer me ;)

  77. Love this plugin and has worked great on my site until I switched webhosts. When I loaded each feed exactly as before it displayed the latest feed result but hasn’t updated since then. It is checking the feed as usual but even when the feed has been updated nothing is being displayed on the site. Could it be a problem with the host? Everything is current including WordPress, FeedWordpress, Magpie and the Duplicate posts filter.

  78. Mark,

    I’ve had a number of reports of problems with third party duplicate posts filters recently. Could you try disabling this add-on at least temporarily, and seeing if FeedWordPress is able to update normally again?

    Let me know how this works for you.

  79. Disabling the duplicate posts plugin solved the problem. All feeds are updating. Thanks for the prompt reply! One other small issue which I can’t figure out is the permalink for the feed results are pointing to my website and not the source of the feed. So for example if you click on a feed title it doesn’t bring you to the source of the feed. It worked fine before and I am assuming it is just a setting I have to correct but I can’t seem to figure out where to set it.

  80. and it was iminated when you changed the name of the method to something other than namespace?

    If so, should be an easy fix to roll into the next release. Thanks for the heads-up!

  81. Hello,

    Playing with the plugin as it seems really nice. Though there is a serious problem why I don’t understand it’s there. If the aggregated content is very short, I don’t see a link back to original site. A link back is available only if aggregated content is long enough.

    note: sure I’m using “point to local copy” option as otherwise it will be meaningless to aggregate content (in terms of Google).

  82. Charles, good morning. I appreciate the new look of FeedWordpress’ web site, very cool, although some parts of the site are outdated (no announcement for version 2010, for example) and some help on the plugin could be improved.

    For example, what does the option “Save syndicated posts as private posts” means? Does this option avoid loading the database (xx_feedmeta) with that additional FWP data?

    If this is the case, could there be any reason to do so? What flexibility would you lose, doing so?

    Regards

    Riccardo

  83. Feed:

    http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?id=0c8077340db44e9ff1f2a8be7b255465&render=rss

    I have added this feed to Feedwordpress. If I click on Syndicated Sites Settings / Syndicated Sources / View, the news items show up. The feed is validated. Yet nothing is getting posted to the WordPress Blog. I have tried manual update and scheduled. Same results.

    What could I be doing wrong?

  84. Anyone see the sense in adding an option to determine the order of publishing (ASC DESC)? If posts are being generated during a refresh in an ajax self-updating blog, the newest one will update first and the older ones are ignored.

    Just a thought. I may have to mod the plugin myself if nobody else can benefit from this option.

  86. First of all, let me please say that I’m very newbie — this is only my second WP site I’ve developed.

    It seems that everything is working properly, as I’ve been able to subscribe to the blog feed, etc. And, the “sample” blog feed appeared once the subcription was complete.

    However, no new posts are appearing in the “Posts” section of my dashboard. I’ve tried the post immediately and into “draft” to see if I could find any postings.

    I’m sure this is user error, but would appreciate the help!

  87. hi, nice plugin but i have a notice – doesn’t work with fluency admin plugin …maybe you can fix this – will be great!

  88. Hi, I’m not sure if this is a bug or not, but when I enter in “don’t add new tags or categories” the categories from my feeds if they match a tag are not being recorded, instead my post tags are always empty, is it supposed to be like this?

  89. Thanks for this plugin Radgeek, been using this in some of my sites. I have one question though and I hope you’ll take some time to answer. Lately, I’m only seeing one post update per day. Is there something that I need to do? I’m used to seeing around 20 posts a day.

    Thanks thanks.

  90. Hello Rad Geek and thank you for the awesome plugin!

    Maybe I’m missing it, but is there a way to change the settings so it does not truncate my posts? They are not truncated in the RSS feed, but they are when I publish them on my blog. I would like the entire post to show on my blog. My settings under ‘reading’ is such that it should post the entire entry.

    Thanks for the help!

  91. Hi!

    I have some problem with FeedWordpress. (Version 2010.0602 is used at now.)

    Please, look at this post: http://frisshirek.biz/belfold/amit-erdemes-tudni-a-lakogyulesekrol-es-a-kozos-kepviselokrol Or this one: http://frisshirek.biz/zene/nina-hagen-jezus-nem-szereti-ha-az-emberek-langyosak

    Some pages can’t load in the browser. These RSS worked correctly till this time, and not only one RSS has problem. So, I think there is some problem with FeedWordpress. I looked in phpmayadmin that, there is gap before ‘postexcerpt’ and ‘postcontent’ table.

    How can I solve this?

    Thanks, best regards. Frisshírek

  92. From my Apache logs:

    PHP Fatal error: Cannot use object of type WPError as array in /Volumes/data/webdata/wp-content/plugins/feedwordpress/compatability.php on line 31

  93. Hi,

    Thanks for the heads-up about this. Could you let me know what version of FWP you’re using, so that I can better determine which version of compatability.php to check when I look up the line number?

  94. Whenever I initially view the site, it comes up with the following error:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class SimplePieCacheMySQL in … /html/wp-content/themes/aggregator/php/simplepie.inc on line 9073

    It only happens the first couple of times and in doing research found this possible solution:

    // Include the required SimplePie library.

    if(!classexists(“SimplePie”)) { requireonce $simplepiefile; }

    The person who posted the solution stated that “all plugins calling for the pie class have to test for its existence first.” which makes sense but I do not know where to include this code. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

  96. Hi I’m running this plugin on a page in my site http://www.science3point0.com/scienceblogs and I have a couple of questions?

    What are the posts being recognised as, with every ‘popular post’ plugin they are not noticed. I want a way in which users can rank the posts like GD stars ranking but this does not work on the page only self made posts, why is this, are they registering as comments?

    Is it possible to display the most recent tags. ie. from the last 10 posts? (for trending)

    Thanks,

    Mark

  97. I have the same problem on one of my blogs. I’ve tried everything (re-installing, deleting). The error: Fatal error: Cannot use object of type WP_Error as array in /www/…/wp-content/plugins/feedwordpress/compatability.php on line 26

    Feedwordpress version: 2010.0905

  98. I was getting the exact same error:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class SimplePieCacheMySQL in … /html/wp-content/themes/aggregator/php/simplepie.inc on line 9073

    Every single time. Changes line 4 of header.php

    oldline 4

    require_once(TEMPLATEPATH.'/php/simplepie.inc');

    newline 4

    if(!classexists("SimplePie")) { requireonce(TEMPLATEPATH.'/php/simplepie.inc'); }

    problem solved. I don’t know why only a few people are getting this error.

    Thank’s for this great template!

  99. Hi:

    I use FeedWordPress and I want the permalink to point to a local copy of posts. This works fine. I would also though like to have the ability to have a link in the post (which points to the local post on my site) that will point to the original post.

    I assume there may be something I can put into the custom data section?

    Thanks, Matthew

  100. Hi guys,

    great great plugin, I have wordpress version Version 2.9.2,and feedwordpress Version 2010.0905

    I am wondering if this is a bug in the plugin, Please notice the image below. I don’t see what are the option I have to pick, I only see two boxes.

    Also, could some one help me to pick the correct option combination:

    I created a category specifically for a particular feed, I need the feed to use that same category for all the posts that come from that feed. I don’t want it to create a new categories every time a new feed comes in. I don’t mind creating new tags. I’ve tried many combination but I can’t seem to get it right.

    Thank you all

  101. Ok,

    problem partially solved, I upgraded to 3.0.1 and now I can see the options. but I still need help with the category issue.

    thank you

  102. Hey, thanks for this plugin. I got a error 500 while trying to activate the plugin. I solved it, by adding the following lines into the .htaccess-file in root of my blog:

    AddType x-mapp-php5 .php AddHandler x-mapp-php5 .php

    The reason was / is my hoster 1&1 and it’s still using php4. But anyway, you can also use php5, which is required by this plugin – and the editor in WP 3.0.1

  103. Thanks for this skillz . . . I’m on 1&1 too, and wouldn’t have known what to do without your post. I’ve upgraded all my blogs to 5.0, but for some reason, the htaccess file still apparently needs to specifically call 5.0.

  104. Its a great plugin… but I am getting feeds where I like to modify its Syndication_permalink… I have idea how to modify but I am not able to find place in the script where I should use the code. I like to include in those links “affiliate code”. Other question would be if there is any update to this post if the URL stays as is or this tweak would change this URL again.

  105. The FWP you install has a small glitch

    the global setting are in place but when I make changes to them they still post feed to the category item I deselected. can you resolve this matter.

  106. Excellent plugin ! Is there a way to filter certain words from a title and/or its contents? When a word matches parts of the title or contents can the entire post/article be automatically discarded (moved to trash)? Would be an awesome feature ! Looked at your plugin section but can’t find anything related to the above problem definition. Thanks !

  107. Hi.

    I use this plugin on [[www.sondernachrichten.de]]. It seems to be the most conveniant aggregator out there but I have two small problems.

    1. it shows only the first item of a feed-update, even when there are i.e. 5 in
    2. it only updates one feed.

    I hope I can get this solved.

    Regards Sondernacht

  108. Hi,

    great plugin, but I think FWP is breaking under the WP 3.1 update. I’m getting the dreaded blank screen of death, but everything works when I remove FWP (and add-attribution-feedwordpress). But them back, it all dies again. Currently searching through the files to see if it’s the extra blank line problem but no joy so far.

    thanks,

  109. Hi. I am using FeedWordpress version 2009.1112.

    The feeds that run in FeedBurner all get theirs permalinks set to feedproxy. google .com/~r/site-name/post-name.html

    Is there any way to get the REAL permalink for this posts? I’ve realised this when trying to set up the TweetMeme button, and I noticed that the button doesn’t work with sites that have their feeds hosted in FeedBurner (as the permalink is a redirect and the button will not work with redirects).

    Any idea will be very very appreciated.

    Thanks a lot!

  110. [[http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/add-linked-images-to-gallery-v01/]]

    plugin works but creates lot of duplicate images.

    Is thr anyway to prevent this?

  111. Hi,

    I’m trying to use the FeedWordPress plug-in with the 3.1 version of WordPress but I found an issue in my posts. Every time that I activate the plug-in and look the posts, all paragraph tags are missing. Is I deactivate the plug-in, everything runs 100%.

    Regards from Brazil

  112. The plugin works great except one thing. I am importing RSS from a site and have noticed that it removes punctuation of the periods at end of sentences. It posts the entire article except for the “.”

    Anyone else have this issue?

    Thanks.

  113. I read lot of appreciation for this plugin but can anyone guide me how can I use this plugin. Any documentation for the process you need to follow in-order to make it active.

    Waiting for your response…

  114. Hi, is there any update on the duplicate posts issue? The plugin which was supposed to solve this issue is stopping the whole feedwordpress from syncing. We have several duplicates here [[http://madridinformer.com|Madrid Informer]]. This would be a cool addition to the plugin itself instead of using third party stuff. An option to check for duplicate titles with the same date or so and then “not” to publish those.

    Another nice thing would be a reduction in CPU usage if that’s somehow possible ;) Thanks

  115. Hi thanks for a great plugin.

    I think however there is a bug – any post I create manually I can edit and formatting is preserved (line breaks etc) any post that is brought in using the plugin and edited removes all formatting and is kept in one big P tag. That is to say when imported the formatting is fine – when any alterations are made to a post all formatting goes.

    I also note that syndicated pages have problems using Yet Another Related Posts plugin – manually created posts are fine, syndicated posts will work once with YARP but then stop showing any relations.

    Hope you can help.

  116. HTML tages like are appearing in the title of posts. How do I prevent that?

    I don’t want to remove formatting from the body of the post but want the Title to be without HTML tags.

    Thank You.

  117. Hello from Germany,

    first lots of thanks for your work!

    At my blog at http://wbt24.de I use lots of external Feeds. Using the option

    **Permalinks point to: * The copy on the original website

    mainly works fine but (especially with one feed) it links to the local copy even when not changed in individual settings for this feed:

    http://feeds.feedburner.com/SeriousGamesMarket?format=xml results in e.g. http://wbt24.de/?p=2961 instead of http://seriousgamesmarket.blogspot.com/2011/04/serious-games-as-high-quality-searches.html

    Sometimes it works fine.. sometimes not… as you could see when going to the author http://wbt24.de/?author=24

    Anyone any idea? The blogger is a little upset because of SEO-activities :-)

    Thanks & Cheers, Volker

  118. I’m having a lot of issues with duplicate content. The problem occurs when there are numerous stories on a Google news feed which share the same title – bar the very end of the title where the publication source is named.

    Is there any way to filter duplicates which, say, match ‘x’ number of words in the title of another post?

    This does seem to have got worse recently, but I don’t know if thats related to feedwordpress or my feeds.

    Thanks for any help/suggestions.

  119. I was using feedwordpress successfully mostly reviewing pending posts before publishing them but then I started importing summaries of other people’s blogs post and twitter feeds and other scrapped feeds that I knew I could publish immediately but when choosing, “Publish posts from this feed immediately”, it isn’t making the link, the permalink, go to the original source, its is making it a post on my blog which I don’t want, there doesn’t seem to be an option to specify that when you choose to post the feed immediately make it go to the original source. this is with a pre-wordpress 3.0 blog and plugin, not sure if the problem is the same for post 3.0 wordpress,I’ve hacked my blog so much it its difficult to just uprgrade.

  120. Is there any plugin that you know of that allows the use of a Social Media Share button on the home page? Add This works but only when you view the posts in the Author Page but the buttons do not appear on the home page. I am looking for something subtle beneath the actual post if possible.

  121. Hi there,

    I have fixed this issue by adding some code in the file syndicatedpost.class.php at line number 1543.

    Basically, I am replacing the special characters with the normal characters before they are inserted into the database.

    It can also be handled by using an array of special characters but as each character is replaced by its normal version, I am using multiple str_replace statements. Another improvement could be to create a standard function and then call that function.

    //Changes start here if (strlen($out['posttitle'])>=1) : //$out['posttitle'] = strreplace(array(“–”,”’”,”‘”,”?”,”“”,”””,”…”),””,$out['posttitle']); $out['posttitle'] = strreplace(“–”,”-”,$out['posttitle']); $out['posttitle'] = strreplace(“’”,”‘”,$out['posttitle']); $out['posttitle'] = strreplace(“‘”,”‘”,$out['posttitle']); $out['posttitle'] = strreplace(“?”,”?”,$out['posttitle']); $out['posttitle'] = strreplace(““”,”‘”,$out['posttitle']); $out['posttitle'] = strreplace(“””,”‘”,$out['posttitle']); $out['posttitle'] = strreplace(“…”,”…”,$out['post_title']); endif; //Changes end here….

    Please include this fix in the next upgrade of the plugin or all my sites using your plugin will throw errors.

    thanks very much for the great plugin.

  122. and it was iminated when you changed the name of the method to something other than namespace?

    If so, should be an easy fix to roll into the next release. Thanks for the heads-up!

  123. Hi – love the plug in.

    I’m getting the following deprecated errors in Admin -> Diagnostics (using latest WP, and PHP 5.2.13):

    Warning: Call-time pass-by-reference has been deprecated; If you would like to pass it by reference, modify the declaration of doaction(). If you would like to enable call-time pass-by-reference, you can set allowcalltimepassreference to true in your INI file in /home/…/wp-content/plugins/feedwordpress/admin-ui.php on line 53

    Warning: Call-time pass-by-reference has been deprecated; If you would like to pass it by reference, modify the declaration of apply
    filters(). If you would like to enable call-time pass-by-reference, you can set allowcalltimepassreference to true in your INI file in /home/…/wp-content/plugins/feedwordpress/syndicatedlink.class.php on line 316

    I’ll play around with those to fix. But, the most unusual error is that the “Syndicated Sources” display, below the H3 tag title, is completely blank … screen shot is at http://lowcarbdaily.com/images/sources-blank.jpg Viewing the page source shows the list is there, but does not display.

    I just upgraded to WP 3.1.2, and I’m using FWP version 2011.0211.2. I also just today added my 80th feed, and I’m wondering if that has an impact on it.

  124. I’m running WordPress version Version 3.0.1.1 and after trying to install the latest version of FeedWordPress, I receive this error:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected TSTRING, expecting TVARIABLE or ‘$’ in /home/islandwa/public_html/blogs/wp-content/plugins/feedwordpress/feedwordpress.php on line 13

    I tried installing an older version and then upgrading, still get the same error.

    Any ideas?

  125. Hi, this is a great plugin!! Unfortunately not compatible with WordPress 3.2 – it would be great if you could update it! Thanks!

  126. here are my local categories. notice Uncategorized is not even a local category I recognize.

    here are the global settings, I have tried to be strict here to make sure things without a specific tag NGS are not syndicated:

    and yet even things are are Uncategorized are being published from [http://jermdemo.blogspot.com]

    how do I prevent this? thx, jerm

  127. Hi, THANK YOU FOR THE UPDATE!! I got it working with 0706 and WP3.2, now unfortunately with WP 3.2.1 there are new problems, such as under Feed&Updates>LimitsPostbyDate I can not enter a number in the Number of Posts (only ‘as many as they appear in the feed’ is possible) and more importantly, it appears that even if I set Updates to Cron job – and no Cron has been setup – it keeps updating the feed automatically. I can not stop it from updating feeds! What’s worse, wait 60 minutes before polling does not work, and I have several feeds updating every 15 minutes. Is this only me or anyone else is experiencing this??

  128. I love this plugin, it does exactly what I need. Unfortunately, I cannot get the allow comments to turn on. I have tried changing the global setting, the post settings, deactivating, reinstalling, nothing seems to work. Any thoughts?

  129. I notice there’s a version 2011.0721 on wordpress.org extend plugins, but no mention of it here. When installed it throws the same error that 0706 was supposed to fix.

    Is this another hijacked update?

  130. First, let me say thanks for a great plugin. I will try to donate before long. I have setup your plugin on a site and did not notice these errors until after updating to the newest version. The errors are not consistent. They will intermittently appear; and after Google-ing the error, the one common factor seemed to be that most all of the results were related to feeds. The error below will sometimes display on the frontend, and sometimes it will display on the admin login page, too. Today, I noticed about ten to twelve instances of the same error when I went to login on the wp-admin page.

    The error:
    Warning: calluserfuncarray() [function.call-user-func-array]: First argument is expected to be a valid callback, 'Array' was given in ///publichtml/***/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 166

    This site has about two dozen feeds setup. Most are from Google, Yahoo and YouTube. The errors are intermittent. I cannot say positively; however, it seems as though the errors may appear after the page has been open for an extended period of time and then refreshed, or a link clicked. This site is using WP 3.1.3. I have not taken a look at your code to see if I can identify if the errors are related to the plugin or not. I am also wondering if it could be some of the feeds themselves. This is the only site I have setup using your plugin. I do not recall seeing these errors prior to upgrading and have not encountered them on any other sites. Also, when I upgraded to the newest version of your plugin, it deleted all the custom post keys and values; which, I discovered after 200-300 posts came in. So, I deleted all those posts and added the custom keys and values to each feed. When I upgraded I also did not setup email notifications either (which, may have been helpful here … idk), because my inbox had been getting slammed with notification emails when using the prior version and I did not see a real upside at that point to continuing to receive the emails.

    I could give you a link to the site. However, as I stated above, the errors are intermittent. I have not figured out a way to reproduce them on command.

  131. So what´s up here? This webpage hasn´t been updated since the release of FWP 2011.0706? I came here because I´m having trouble (again) with repeated posts, but I´m using the current version (2011.0721) on my WP 3.2.1 + BP 1.2.9. website. When I get here, however, it looks like nobody´s home. Not a good message to be sending…

  132. Hi,

    Lovely plugin. I wonder if there will be an update when someone reads the main page of posts, and then clicks “full story” and it just takes to the individual post, but it just has the same short description?
