    I am just learning this whole word press thing, frankly it is a lot more confusing than html ever was, I am trying to work with autoblog ver Version 3.4.1 , i have tried updating it with what I think are the right type of feed url's but nothing happens, there is no update in my blog.

    so far all i have gotten to work on my blog page is adsense and the calender, any advise is welcome, I am using wordpress ver Version 3.1.3

    Hello

    this is a feed i used as a sample:
    http://www.nytimes.com/pages/science/index.html?partner=rssuserland

    Thanks very much.

    I've checked that link and it isn't a feed itself although it does have a feed associated with it, which is http://feeds.nytimes.com/nyt/rss/Science

    Looking at that feed I can see that each item only has a title and description, not the full content. Autoblog is therefore unable to actually import the full content because there is none!

    Cheers,
    Phil

    BTW , are supposed to process the feeds after you list them, how long do they take to actually begin to show results?

    Thanks.

    The feeds will auto process but you can manually process them if you wish, a button for which is provided.

    thanks, i have seen no indication of either thing happening, be auto update or manual updating, this word press stuff works great in tutorial videos and product videos for plugins but weeks of effort have gained me nothing yet, if you can suggest an auto plugin that work I would be grateful. Thanks

    That suggests something is wrong somewhere then... have you checked that the feeds are working okay?

    Can you provide links to them and your site please?

    Also try manually processing them with no other plugins activated as it might be a plugin conflict.

    only one at the moment, a test feed, the one you mentioned in your email to me last week.

    http://feeds.nytimes.com/nyt/rss/Science

    all other plugins are deactivated now except autoblog.

    Thanks

    Okay, thanks. There are a few errors on that feed but nothing that should stop it processing.

    Can you post a screenshot of your autoblog settings please?

    I have been busy on other matter an had little time to concern my self with these plugins, word press almost does not seem worth the time, but I am going to stay with it a little longer, thanks for your kind assistance.
