i came up with the idea to include a list of recent updated posts vom several rss ressources, all sorted in a single list. i was taking a look at FeedWordPress, which does not fit my needs as it imports items from the other blogs.
a lightweight solution would be great, that does the following:
* get a recent number of posts from a list of blogs
* sort them by date
* display the last n number of posts from the list
any ideas? anything like this done allready?
It’s known as a feed aggregator, and one known around these parts is David Chait’s CG-Feedread:
thanks a lot! great plugins, I also liked the other ones very much!
Yes, FeedRead has a mode I call ‘Multifeed’, where it takes an array of RSS URLs and will intermix them by date order. Let me know if you have any Qs. (I don’t actually know of any other aggregator scripts that do this — would be interested to hear of others if anyone knows!)
I’m pretty sure Planet does it, David. But that’s that Python thingy…
Yeah, I meant something PHP that’d work with WP… 😉 😉
Can this program update my wordpress blog as well. I have installed feedwordpress and although the link does appear on my blog it does not update it as it should be doing.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Yes it can update your feeds automatically if you do a cron job on this file “update-feeds.php” that is placed in wp-content/ or you can updated manually by going to this page.
For me all new posts go in the default category, if someone knows how to make feedwordpress place post in a certain predefined category I would highly apreciate it.
Have a nice day.

The latest release of FeedWordPress (0.97) allows you to set one or more categories that all syndicated posts will appear in. You can access this option under Options –> Syndication in the WordPress Dashboard; just check as many or as few categories as you would like.
