    Add at the end of excerpts an '...' symbol
    1. Now the excerpts look like this text row # without an unterminated text symbol. I must to add it manually
    2. I will like that an excerpt look like this text row ... # with an unterminated text symbol

    Do not reload deleted titles/sources
    I do not want to publish all loaded titles, so I delete unneeded, but they appear again.

    Add an option to download only titles (without text/excerpts)
    In some situation this will be enough.

    Hello
    If you're using the shortcode option there is a parameter you can use to change what shows at the end of excerpts.

    As for only titles, all you need to do is customize your own template (and eliminate the descriptions) and save the template.

    I'm not sure about reloaded titles...are you using the shortcode option or the Feed to Post?

    Thank you, Allen!
    I am using (testing) 'Feed to Post'.

    ok..then that would (until I do an update) require just going in and changing the code (which exists in the /inc/import_posts.php file..which assuming you know a bit of programming should be easy to change.

    As for the reloaded titles, this should not be happening unless the feed has some random numbers in the URL (which I've seen on one occasion with posts from Bing). If you give me the URL of the RSS feed that keep appearing again after you've deleted the posts, I can maybe figure this out.

    OK, here is one of RSS feed that keeps titles to appear again after I have deleted them: http://www.psihosoft.ro/index.php/ro/blog/categories/analizadate?format=feed&type=rss

    ok...i just tried that, and I'm not able to reproduce the problem....do you happen to have the plugin PHP Admin or access to a way to see your database? That's the only way I can understand what's going on as each time you import, the url of the post is stored in the post_meta table and this table is checked before the url is added again as a post. It may be that that the urls are not going into your post_meta table...do you know how to check that?

    Allen, thank you for your replay! I know how to check the database, I will do that a little later. I moved my blog to another domain, so I need to reinstall your plugin. In connection with this I will suggest an another feature: possibility to export and to import the full configuration of your plugin (with feeds, categories, settings, etc.) from one blog to another.

    EDIT
    I noticed that number of cathegories is linked to the number of feeds. I think this is not so good. At one moment I needed a new category and I cannot to create it until I added a feed.

    Allen, please, read also previous message.

    So, after analysing database and a little experimenting I found why your plugin reloads deleted items. It likes that deleted titles to be kept in the trash (so they must exists there), but I do not like this :(, I want an empty trash.

    When I empty the trash, all information about deleted titles are deleted also from the postmeta table. I think this last action must be somehow forbidden. Is this possible?

    As it turns out my plugin does not touch the wp_posts table, where you add, delete, trash, etc. posts. My plugin takes the url of the original post (the permalink) and stores that in the wp_postmeta table..so you can delete your post or whatever, but the url stays in the wp_postmeta table and that is where the plugin checks to see if the article (via the link) has been added at some time (regardless of whether the article has been trashed.

    So the question is when you input the articles are they showing up in the wp_postmeta table (as they should using rssmi_source_link as the key)

    Yes.

    No, it is not as you described! When I delete an unneeded post/title and I empty the trash, the deleted post/title is deleted also (in my case) from the postmeta table. I verified this! The deleted posts have the meta_key '_wp_trash_meta_status', so I can easily identify them. After the empting the trash they disapear from the postmeta table.

    A little clarification. My blog is located in a subnetwork of a multisite/multinetwork configuration. The id of blog is '5', so the table has the name 'wpms_5_postmeta'. Maybe your plugin in a multisite/multinetwork configuration works differently as in a common/single install?

    I don't have this problem on my multi-site network. Anyway, my sense is maybe this plugin isn't working well for you configuration. You might try another plugin for you application.

    Ok, thanks, I will try.

    How about to add a '...' symbol at the end of excerpts for the 'Feed to Post'?
