    Could you pull in the RSS feeds from those forums?

    No, we can not pull those forums via RSS but we can subscribe via e-mail.

    I'm just going to think out loud here.....

    So you can subscribe via email. Can you set up a filter (I know you can in gmail at least) to take those emails and forward them?

    you could then forward those emails to autopost to WP
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_to_your_blog_using_email

    or forward them to another service like posterous.com, which can in turn be set to autopost to your wordpress blog.

    Again, just thinking out loud...haven't thought about this too much

    Hi there

    All the information on Boards.ie is copyrighted so you would be breaking the Terms of Use you signed up to by seeking to republish the content anywhere else without our permission.

    Please don't do this. I understand the benefit of having highly ranked content on your blog, but create it yourself rather than try take it from us.

    Kind regards

    you are breaking our forum rules by having an email or url in user name - please correct asap

    just as a thought, how do you copyright information that a user posts?

    Cheers Samuel, wasn't aware of that - changed now.

    We don't copyright the information in the posts, we hold intellectual rights over the information on our site.

    So, for example, you posting on Boards.ie and thenn copying and pasting what you wrote onto your blog is fine.

    You pulling in all the contributions from everyone else - without their permission or ours - is just not on. All the OP has to do is drop us a line at hello@boards.ie explaining what they want to do and why and we can take it from there.

    I am not entertaining conversations about "Your stuff ranks well on Google and I want to capitalise on that" though. Would you?
