Thanks, that made some forward movement. However, the plugin is creating topics that link directly out to the source of the post. I aggregate a bunch of links into a single site, when the plugin creates a topic, it is a link out to the source instead of a link to the topic discussion.
What is happening is when you go to the forum topics page and click on a topic to post in, its actually a link to the website that was aggregated using FeedWordPress.
Also, I might be using it incorrectly in my theme because it is only creating a link on the first post of the blog page.
