    I recently updated to 2.0 and love the new features, but some of my plugins are not compatabile...in particular Feedbwordpress
    http://projects.radgeek.com/feedwordpress

    Does anyone have a good recommendation for 2.0 to restore the Feed aggregation from other blogs? I liked FeedWordPress functions, but afraid it is still buggy with the new upgrade.

    Thanks!

    Include me in this post. Feedwordpress failed in WP 2.0 for me too.

    And I donĀ“t know how to install planetplanet.

    Yep. Feedwordpress was pretty cool, but this app doesn't seem to be supported for 2.0 version yet and that's a bummer. The import feature was way cool and we're really in need of a fix or a replacement.

    If anyone has any suggestions....we're eager to know...

    I'm using BDP RSS Aggregator with pretty good success:

    I second BDP RSS Aggregator. Nice. Fully featured.

    I have just upgraded to WordPress version 2.0; and my BDP-RSS Aggregator seems to be working perfectly.

    The only glitch was the PHPExec plugin I was using. I have changed to exec-php , without any significant difficulty and all works fine.

    I've tried this feed resource, but it seems to pale in comparison to the former tools I used. I find no easy way to funnel RSS feeds into specific categories like FeedWordPress used to.

    Is anyone using a Feed mechanism that automagicaly imports RSS feeds into existing WordPress categories?

    This post should resolve the Feedwordpress issues at least until Radgeek releases a new version.

    Thanks Beer,

    I tried your patch. There was some confusion as to whether I should just update the function or the first post, but I still get wonky errors in the PlugIn display in the dashboard. Any suggestions?

    THanks.

    Assuming you're using WP 2.0, what are the errors you see ? I'm not seeing any on mine.

    Hi Beer,

    When I make modifications to the feedwordpress.php script with your revisions, my Dashboard under Manage Plugins is showing all kinds of PHP that is distorting the page display so bad that I have to delete the plug in altogether.

    I've tried editing the file with your first 1637 lines of code (which by the way has a break) - noted and then I tried to edit just the function author_to_id, but no dice.

    Any suggestions?

    I would just edit the function author_to_id, and it sounds like you might be creating an error during the edit process.

    Beer,

    You're right. I backed up, reinstralled a fresh feedwordpress and made your function edit as described. So far...so good.

    Cheers. I'll drink one on 'Beer' next time...

    Is anyone having problems with importing photos? We're unable to bring across photos specifically from Blogger? Are there any fixes?

    Thanks.
