[resolved] Importing data from another mysql database into wordpress (8 posts)

    Hi all. I am wanting to import updates from a separate database into my wordpress blog. Ideally as someone adds a new post in the other database I would like it to automatically go into my wordpress blog. Does anyone know of a plugin that will do this or whether it can be hand coded? After searching around I see that people are doing this with other blogging software but can't find any tutes on how to integrate from a non-generic database setup. Hope this makes sense. Any help much appreciated.

    It looks like the other database needs to be for a blog as well to get an rss feed. Unfortunately it is a website where people just upload items for sale to display on the site and I would also like those items to display on the wordpress blog which has it's own separate database. I'll look into how I can attach a rss feed to the advertisers database so I can link them....am I on the right track?
