Use FeedWordPress to create external blog functionality

    Follow-up on this topic: I’ve used the FeedWordPress plugin for a while. It’s excellent.

    With administrator access you can associate RSS feeds with member blogs. It should be possible to make that functionality available to regular members so they can do it themselves -> voila, external blogs.

    I’ll look into this in the next two weeks, when I’m upgrading to version 1.1.3 or 1.2. I’ll probably use crude custom code to add an input field on profile pages that allows members to enter an RSS feed directly into FeedWordPress’ database table.

    To turn it into a more sophisticated plugin I’ll probably need some help.

    Is anyone else still working on this? Any ideas, comments or suggestions?

    I’ll report back when I’ve made some progress…

    I think this is a good idea.. Now that I know that you are working on this, this is what I’m going to do on my site

    1: Let users fill in their external rss feed adress (which then gets feed into FeedWordPress like you said)

    2: Create a default blog theme which matches with my site layout

    Now you have a seemlessy integrated blog which also imports external posts.. sweet!

    Keep us updated!

    On a regular WP blog, combining http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/add-link/ with FeedWordPress allows site users to add their feeds to the site without access to the dashboard.

    BP-DEV guy “Nicola” has something like this “aggregator” but I think its broken at the moment.

    its a good idea though!

    I use WP-O-Matic instead of FeedWordpress it has some pretty advanced features — a cool feature it has is REGEX so you can do some fancy rewriting of a feed and relinking.

    (*just a thought)
