    Hi, i have installed word press on HotEnd.com as a trial. I used a plugin that grabs rss feeds from many websites. All feeds are then converted into posts and placed in certain categories. Only problem is that some times the same article/post is filed under multiple categories (in rss feeds) and the plugin imports and creates one post for each one. My question is

    How can i delete duplicate posts with the same exact word-to-word title and content, if its possible.

    thanks in advance for any help.

    With WP, which we support here, you can't.

    You might look at the various syndication plugins you're using and see if their authors can help you.

    Or, look at using a service like feedblendr.com. Give it ALL your feeds and I think it does some stripping of dupes (maybe? worth a look).

    Hi PakSpy,

    I am interested in what kind of plugin you use to grab the rss feeds that convert them into posts.

    Thanks HandySolo,

    But I couldn't find any plug-in that converts and rips
    apart a rss-feed into several single posts.
