Hi chaps!

I'm looking for a particular plugin and I'm sure that something like this already exists.

Basically, I've got my hands on a large database of stuff and I'm thinking about converting it into a feed and then scheduling automatic posting over a certain period of time.

Otherwise, if my site suddenly grows from 100 pages to 2100, it will be very suspicious. If I had this plugin, I could drip-feed the posts, say 3 per day, and everyone would be happy :)

Do you know of a plugin that can do this?

@travelin cat, yes, using the right forum helps :) very professional of me, I know! Next time I'll check the whole list of forums.

@lexpixel, it would take me ages because I'm talking about content in bulk, but actually, your idea showed me the right way. There is a plugin called Auto-Schedule Posts by Mr David Miller - it catches any flow of content that comes towards a site and force-schedules posts according to your instructions. It will handle any number of posts. Problem solved! Thanks!
