RSS ... Syndication? (7 posts)

    Hello,

    I have several websites, one runs wordpress, another runs GeekLog, etc. I would like to display the story headlines from each from a single wordpress engine. A history of all stories should be kept. However, to read the full story or to write comments, a person should be directed to the website of origin. Does something like this exist already?

    I've looked into Syndicators/Aggregators, but it seems they just duplicate the content on other sites.

    For my purposes I want a quick way to see all the stories, but I want comments etc to be maintained by the inidividual sites. Haivng people use a single aggregator instead of the sites it aggregates would be a bad political move in this case.

    Can wordpress do it at all? Its much easier for me to maintain one piece of software.

    So this Planet tool seems to be an "RSS Aggregator". From what I see, they do not archive stories, they just show the current X many from each site?

    I think I'd like to archive other RSS feeds, but link back to the original source when the person wishes to leave a comment of read more than an abbreviation of each story.

    WordPress is not designed to be an aggregator. It has some functionality that can help somebody do that sort of thing, but not a lot of that. It's just not built for it.

    Hi, I am trying to learn more about this as I cannot get FeedWordPress to work. Here is what I want to do: I want to take several RSS feeds and consolidate them, but have the ability to edit them and delete some of them. This is for an application involving "data" more than "news" so a re-edit is appropriate.

    I also want to be able to add new fields to each post (possibly this can be done with categories and tags). Then I want to be able to "republish" this consolidated and edited feed, to a new feed which I control. Possibly this new feed is "private" and only available to registered users, or maybe it is public- I haven't decided yet.

    Could WordPress be used for this application? I'm thinking there must be some way to do this and would like recommendations as to what plugins, techniques, etc I should use

    If a completely different tool would be better for this, I would like to know that as well. If "Planet" does not allow you to archive the post as SomePriest says, than that would not do. I also tried to do this using Yahoo Pipes a while back and didn't get anywhere there either.

    Any ideas?

    I aggregate, filter, and sort rss feeds using Yahoo pipes and then use WordPress to display the rss feed from Yahoo
