Link directly to external post from RSS Multi-Importer-created post? (1 post)

    I love this plugin! It does everything I need it to do...almost.

    I'm using the plugin to pull content from the feed for our sports information director's (non-Wordpress-based) athletic news site (http://www.battlingbishops.com/) and spit it out as posts on our main university news site (http://connect2.owu.edu/). That part seems to be working fine.

    What's not working (and I can't find a way to adjust this behavior) is that, for the posts created by this plugin, the title, thumbnail image, and "read more" button all point to a post on our site rather than directly linking to the external post on our sports news site.

    If I click to go into the post itself, however, then the title links to the external post as expected.

    Is there a way to change the plugin's settings (even if it involves code-tweaking) so that the title/thumbnail/read-more all link directly to the external post? Alternatively, is there a way to make a more prominent "read the original story"-type link/button that is only visible on the individual post itself and not in the excerpt or anything that's pulled for the "page of posts" homepage?

    Thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide,
