Updating RSS feed automatically (4 posts)

    Hi everyone,

    I have setup a WP Blog at http://www.justminiatures.co.uk/blog and have a single RSS feed coming in.

    I set it up by using the import function.

    Is there a way to make the feed change on my blog automatically each time the feed changes on the owners site?

    Sorry if this a totally silly question but i really dont know.

    Thanks,

    Gav

    Not totally :)
    Feed are pull, not push.
    Your script would have to periodically request a refresh of the feed for the changes to show up on your blog.

    I don't believe there is, but there are some plugins for showing imported RSS feeds on your blog here http://codex.wordpress.org/Plugins/Syndication.

    I don't know which is the better, as I haven't any incoming RSS myself.
