Digest Post fetches an RSS feed on a regular basis (usually daily) and posts a list of links to the newest articles as a digest post to your blog.
In order to run daily, it leverages the WordPress "cron" facility which was introduced in WordPress 2.1. Therefore, this plugin won't work with any versions older than that.
Please note that this plugin is in a very early stage of development. It currently has no Admin pages to configure it with, instead you need to go into the plugin's PHP code to set it up. However it is planned to have it completely configurable through a WordPress Admin page.
Why can’t I just have an admin interface for the settings?
That’s what I am wondering too 😉 No, seriously, this is high up on the list of
things that this plugin needs.
How can I help?
If you want to help making this plugin more useful, feel free to drop me a line
at fwenzel at mozilla dot com. If you are “PHP-savvy”, you may also change some
of the code you find in the SVN repository
http://svn.wp-plugins.org/digest-post/trunk/) and send me a patch. I very
much appreciate it!
Will it re-post items it already fetched once?
No, the plugin stores the time stamp it last posted a digest, and the next time
it runs, it will only include items in the digest that have a time stamp after
the last post.
Will it fetch the RSS feed periodically and cache its contents?
No, not at the moment. But if you’d like to add this feature, you are very
welcome to help me out! (See the section on how you can help above.)
