    ok,

    im looking for some way of getting a rss feed to post each item as a post.

    So it reads the rss , posts the item as a post then does the next.

    do you get what i mean?

    also it would be nice to have multiple feeds.

    sorry its not explained well.

    i would recommend http://projects.radgeek.com/feedwordpress/

    However, when i set up a blog with feedwordpress yesterday, i allways got the error:

    update-feeds: instruct FeedWordPress to look for new syndicated content

    Sending ping to <http://sebastiangruber.se.funpic.org/wordpress/xmlrpc.php>...

    The XML-RPC ping failed (local): transport error - could not open socket

    is this a server problem? can anybody help? thanks,

    I'm getting the same error. However it did work at one time before I "restored" my site... weird. The content seems to be ok...except when updating the feeds @ http://www.binaryechoes.net/wp-content/update-feeds.php I get

    <copy>

    update-feeds: instruct FeedWordPress to look for new syndicated content

    Sending ping to <http://www.binaryechoes.net/xmlrpc.php>...

    The XML-RPC ping failed (local): transport error - could not open socket

    </paste>

    I tried reinstalling the plugin and searching WP forums to no avail.

    Is this a bug or is it something that I'm overlooking?

    Any suggestions and/or hacks greatly appreciated...

    Thanks,

    Justin
