    Bear with me folks I'm new at this.

    I'd like to import a feedburner blog into my wordpress blog as individual posts. Is there a plugin I need? And if not, how do I go about doing this?

    Thanks for the link, but (and correct me if I'm wrong here) the plugin (which I had installed before I asked for help here) is for exporting your WP blog into Feedburner. Whereas I would like to import a feedburner blog into WP as individual posts.

    I realise this post is 6 months old, but in case someone stumbles on it with a similar question - you can use scripts like firstRSS to import RSS feeds into WordPress. There are of course many other options, but I found this one easiest.

    It doesn't, however, show the RSS entries as individual posts. I believe I read of a plugin or script that did this but can't find it at the moment.

    Thanks for reviving this... I'm wondering yet if anyone's developed one for listing RSS titles in a sidebar, or maybe even as a scrolling marquee... something like that.

    ladydelaluna,

    wordpress now has a widgets plugin that does many things including let you list rss titles in the sidebar. not as a scrolling marquee, but as a list. read more and find the widgets plugin from here > http://wordpress.org/development/2006/03/widgets-plugin/

    *cringe* i'm really not prepared to have to get into widgets just for this... i like my themes as they are. ;) (i'm well aware of widgets and wordpress, i'm here on the forums daily... and i have no use for them, and have yet to hear a valid argument for making all these changes to themes just to use them.)

    but thanks for the info incase i have any other clients who would want a widgetized theme and rss feeds in the sidebar...

    i'm just hoping for a plugin or something that would allow me to put RSS feeds (titles only) in my sidebar, as opposed to in a post or page - without having to get into widgets. (not a fan, can you tell?)

    You seem afraid of widgets! ;)

    How would you need to change your theme to work with widgets? Are using non-standard coding for your sidebar lists (i.e. not ul and li)? Using widgets really only needs a minor addition to your theme code.

    But if you don't want to use widgets, I'm sure you can do it without them. Just google for any old php based rss scripts. It would go where you want in your sidebar, and really run independently of your WP.

    OMG - I'm not "afraid" of them. Please get off that.
    I just don't WANT to use them.
    This is typical of what I mean by the "continental divide" - the arrogance of widget users versus non-widget users.

    What makes you think that someone who has been driving stationwagons for 10 years would all of the sudden want to buy a corvette? I just don't want to use them, and neither do a large number of long-time WP users like me.

    EDIT: I'm not going to carry on this conversation in two places, and I'm not going to hijack the OP's thread either. http://wordpress.org/support/topic/70737
