question and mistake on website

this may be a double posting as the previous one got stuck - if so just ignore

Hi,

I would like to use the autoblog feature to post not articles to my website but to make a digest posting of a feed - would that be possible and if so, how?

I can see that there is a daily check but it looks like one feed entry equals one posting, right? Is there any other plugin I am not seening?

Also tip: you mistyped on the page the word of the plugin :wink:

    Hello Nicole.

    Thanks for your post.

    I would like to use the autoblog feature to post not articles to my website but to make a digest posting of a feed - would that be possible and if so, how?

    Can you elaborate a bit more ? What do you mean by digest posting here ?

    I can see that there is a daily check but it looks like one feed entry equals one posting, right? Is there any other plugin I am not seening?

    This is how it works,

    You define the frequency the feed will be checked for new posts and how many latest posts will be imported.

    That is how it will post the feed on your site :slight_smile:

    So if the frequency is set to 24 hours and latest 10 posts so every 24 hours it will test and import 10 latest posts on your site.

    Thanks for the info on typo :slight_smile: I have sent a note to our docs guy @Patrick Cohen and it will be fixed asap.

    Sending a few points your way for being awesome !

    Cheers, PC

    Ah I was wondering about that point thing :wink: Yeah, I have a talent for finding those mistakes . :wink:)

    I am half looking through the plugins - great btw - and what I am looking for is a bit more complex but can be done with standard default plugin work. cryptic I know but you'll understand better when you read my problem far below. :wink:)

    I searched for digest (which would show up if it existed) that is why I think it is not available.

    in regard to the standard plugin part which is also relevant to you:
    i can post 10 (external) post to 10 local posts.

    what I cannot do:
    Feed has x postings since last check interval, make out of that a digest with _one_ local posting having as content the following variables ....

    aka digest. All of your plugins seem to have a one on one relationship with the external / blog site postings to the local postings / display.

    hope that makes it more relevant?
    I consider this case to be closed for now please let me know if I can clarify more if needed.

    happy greetings from Berlin :wink:
    Nicole
    _____________________________________________

    my use case is actually feed to a facebook group posting, for which I emplore feed to zapier to google doc to ifttt to gmail to fb group - just to have a proper digest posting. There is a website with jobs and each job is a posting.

    I would like to collect that and once a day post on my blog
    "hei! new postings there:
    $digest

    endtext".

    This way I have linked to them but not as single postings. That one below has some variables in it (like which date, how many postings, and bitly shortening, which is not necessary but very nice). It only gets posted when there is at least one new entry.

    Facebook groups btw are an area for posting to too, not just pages and profiles. :wink: I have 2 groups with a total of 15k people in there for berlin startups and fb drives me nuts with missing possibilities, so I am putting a wp with plugins in between - hence your products.

    Example of the result out of the feed:

    Digest (external) Berlinstartupjobs.com - 13.08.2013

    This is an automatic digest from berlinstartupjobs (no affiliation with this group). For details on how to apply see the according link.

    Thanks for posting back Nicole.

    Feed has x postings since last check interval, make out of that a digest with _one_ local posting having as content the following variables ....

    Unfortunately that would need some custom work.

    aka digest. All of your plugins seem to have a one on one relationship with the external / blog site postings to the local postings / display.

    Yeah you are spot on. One external blog post = one local post which can be either excerpt with a link to the original post or a full duplicate.

    For your use case, sadly its not possible with the Autoblog plugin at the moment. You can use our Ultimate Facebook and post the articles from your site to your facebook page separately but not as a group or a digest.

    Our Subscribe by email plugin can be used to send digest emails to the subscribers though.

    Here is a plugin I found but sadly its not been update in ages : http://wordpress.org/plugins/rss-digest/
