I run a Wordpress blog aggregator & use a plugin called FeedWordPress. It doesn't do its job terribly well & I was wondering if anyone knows of anything else that might work better & work in a WP environment. I have 40 blogs I aggregate linking to the posts at the original blogs.

I don't use WP so I can't be much help there. Does it need to be a plug-in? What's wrong with your current plug-in?

The plugin just doesn't work well. It replicates posts. Once I get to a certain threshold of archived posts it stops updating feeds. So only a few of the feeds are actually updated & most aren't updated at all. I've just found another plugin that will automatically delete posts from the archive that are beyond a certain age. This will probably help reduce the archive size & help the rss update feature somewhat.

I've written numerous times to the plugin author & he never replies. I don't know of any other WP plugin that does what this plugin does unfortuantely.
