Is it possible to use an RSS feed from another site/blog to create entries into the SS blog module? I have seen snippets of examples that create links to the external articles on the blog, but none that add them as an entry to your own blog. Is this possible? All advice/links appreciated.

Hi theoldlr,

There is a module called rssaggregator. You can add rss sources (i.e. and display them as a blog.

thanks for the reply, carlos

Unfortunately, though, that module broke the cms for my site. Also, my intent was to have the external content integrated into the blog module so that the feed entries would be intermixed with the user created blog entries rather than on a separate page. Does anyone have a good idea on how I might do this?

I would also be interested to have rss feed displayed as blog entries...

I tried with rssaggregator but there is no support, and the entries are displayed inside a left side menu and not in plain page

I tried with restfulservice but it seems that the example given at this page only works with the rss url given. It is a matter of rss formatting....

sorry not to help
