    I am looking for a plugin that will show my "shared items" on Google Reader. I have a feed for it, and you can see that it has its own page here: http://www.google.com/reader/shared/11261289401220609938.

    I am wanting for that page to show up on my wordpress blog including pics, and the entire post. Is this possible??

    Not a plugin, but...

    While in Google Reader, click on "Shared Items" (upper left).

    At the top, see the link in

    You can also copy and paste code to put a clip of your shared items on your site.

    Click that link. You get a popup with a bit of HTML. Copy that bit of HTML and paste into your theme, whereever you want it to show up. Or if using widgets, I think you can just paste it into a text widget.

    But I am looking for something that will actually post it into WordPress. I am aware of the html bit, but I wanted for it to be posted, and show the entire text with images. Possible?? Oh, and thanks so much for the replies guys!!

    Well, there are some plugins that can take any feed and "syndicate" it as posts. You'll find some here:

    You can also use this plugin to include your items on your blog (via a template tag).

    This is how you can create a blog roll list (just the links and titles):

    1. Generate some code using the instructions and widget here:

    http://googlesystem.blogspot.com/2007/08/blogroll-powered-by-google-reader.html

    2. Create a custom page template. In my case, I just copied the page.php default file in my theme to another file called feedpage.php and just added the code from step one, plus the header information as specified in: http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages

    3. Then go ahead and create your page as normal with whatever title and introductory text that you want to have to your blog roll, but select your new page template that you have just created. (as opposed to the default one)

    4. Publish it. Done!

    You can see my finished product here:

    Here is my custom page template which did the job:

    <?php
    /*
    Template Name: FeedPage
    */
    ?>
    
    <?php get_header(); ?>
    
    <div id="content">
    
    <?php include(TEMPLATEPATH."/l_sidebar.php");?>
    
    <div id="contentmiddle">
    	<?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    	<h1><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
    	<?php the_content(__('Read more'));?>
    
    <div id='blog_roll_28951'>
    
      <script type='text/javascript'>
     function build_bloglist_28951(data) {
       var container = document.getElementById('blog_roll_28951');
       var list = document.createElement('div');
       for (var i=0; i < data.items.length; i++) {
        var item = data.items[i];
       if (item.alternate){
          var link = document.createElement('a');
         link.appendChild(document.createTextNode(item.title));
          link.href = item.alternate.href;
          list.appendChild(link);
         list.appendChild(document.createElement('br'));
       }
      }
      container.appendChild(list);
     }
     </script>
    
      <script src='http://www.google.com/reader/public/javascript-sub/user/078669578670522186/label/blog-roll?callback=build_bloglist_28951' type='text/javascript'></script>
     <div align='right' style='margin-top:15px; font-size:85%;'><a href='http://www.google.com/reader/public/subscriptions/user/09961869578670522186/label/blog-roll'>Save as OPML</a>  (<a href='http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OPML'>?</a>)  </div>
     </div>
    
            <?php edit_post_link('(Edit Page)', '', ''); ?>
    	<!--
    	<?php trackback_rdf(); ?>
    	-->
    
    	<?php endwhile; else: ?>
    
    	<p><?php _e('Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.'); ?></p><?php endif; ?>
    	</div>
    
    <?php include(TEMPLATEPATH."/r_sidebar.php");?>
    
    </div>
    
    <!-- The main column ends  -->
    
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    I'm looking for the same thing oxfire is asking about and I'm not sure that was answered in the thread. Can anyone point to a plugin that solves this problem, or is it time to give up and make headway for Tumblr?
