    1. In Posts and Links you change the permalinks point to the copy on the original site or the copy on this site. I’d like the post titles to link to the original source but the Leave Comment to link to my comment form. Is this possible? Thanks!

    2. Hi there, I’m syndicating YouTube channels to my site and what I get is a brief of the YouTube video and I was wondering if feedwordpress can embed these videos?

      Your support is highly appreciated.

    3. Yes, indirectly, due to the new “Trash” functionality introduced since WP 2.9. Now when I trash a post, it is still in the database, so Feedwordpress will recognize it as existing and won’t fetch it again.

      It’s not a perfect solution though: trash gets deleted (default 30 days, you can extent it but eventually it will get emptied) and I do have some feeds from sources that post very infrequently yet their feed pushes more than the usual 10 – so the problem is, from time to time I still have very old feeds show up again. But it;s much better than pre-2.9.

    4. did you ever get an answer or resolve this problem of how to stop deleted posts coming through with each update without having to hold them as drafts? I have the same issue.

    5. Sorry it’s not the real answer, but interestingly I have the opposite problem, which makes me wonder why you’re not experiencing the same.

      My flow: - FeedWordpress brings in updates from 30+ sources - the get in “Pending” status - I fix them up (tagging, image ..etc) and Publish > but not all. Some inputs I will never publish.

      And this is where the problem begins. If I “delete” an item instead of publishing it, next time FeedWordpress updates it will be back as “pending”. For now my workaround is to assign these “draft” status so they don’t show on the blog. But that means carrying hundreds (soon thousands) of dead entries.

      Is there a way to force FeedWordpress NOT to reimport what was once deleted?

      Thanks.

    6. How do i get deleted posts back again? i unfortunatly delete some of the posts fed from one of the sites, is it possible to get these posts re-fed again?

    7. First thank you for such a great tool. Second, how do I strip down what I am feeding into my blog. Each post I put in has ads and other links that aren’t mine. I just want the title, the text, the images, and a trackback url at the bottom.

      This has to be possible. I have already tried searching and figuring out the custom post settings, but i don’t get it.

    8. I’m testing this before going live with a new blog.

      At present I import feeds as draft, review them and delete any unwanted ones before publishing. However, at the next update the deleted items appear again among my drafts, building an unmanageable amount of draft posts in the not-so-long run.

      How can I prevent the plugin from fishing again posts older than {whatever}?

      Or can you suggest another way to stop it accepting the same content time and time again?

      thanks a million!

    9. thank you for great plugin. by the way,how should I do if I want to show site’s name with feed content? moreover if I can,I want to make thumbnail of photo which is used in the item.

      now [item's name]

      [item's content]

      I want to show [item's name by site's name]

      [thmbnail] [excerpt of item's content]

      I managed to dispaly excerpt of item,but could not do site’s name and thumbnail.please tell me.

    10. I’m looking for web hosting service we can use feedwordpress smoothly. now I use free web hosting, but that is really laggy. what hosting service you use?please tell me everyone!

    11. I have the plug in installed on 5 blogs but i can only get 3 to work? I have 14 blogs right now that I want to add it to, what am i doing wrong?

    12. out of 5 blogs ( wordpress) 2 will not hold the web address I want to use, plus when i try other blogs the same thing I’ve turned off all the plug in’s and changed the themes still noting help

    13. Firstly, this is a really great plugin.

      I would like to add a link at the bottom of each post to include our site address and telephone numbers etc. I’ve played around with the settings, but we’re not really getting very far with it. Please can you help?

    14. Thanks for the plugin. It works great. Up to a point. I am having a problem with duplication of items in the same feed. I thought I was getting an overlap problem of catching the feed from two different time scans but it is coming in on the same scan. There must be any easy fix for this. I have also found a good way of filtering my feeds through Yahoo Pipes. Nice to get just the data I want to see. No I have not seen the problem occur with the Pipes input only the straight feeds. Thanks again!

    15. Hello,

      I love your plugin – and i’ve tried all different combinations in the configs to make it so I can let people comment on my site but also follow an url to the full story..

      If i choose allow comment on feed items: Comments can be left, but there’s no link to the full story..

      Is there a way to accomplish this?

      THanks! Rob

    16. Is there anyone here who ever tried to migrate a quite large gregarius database to feedwordpress? Are there any scripts to do that?
