I've been using WP-autoblog plugin to add feeds to my blogs, but I've read there's some security issues with it now so they're not even offering it for download anymore. Anyone have some alternative plugins?

They have a plug-in called lazyblogger over at Zipped (http://www.zippedsites.com/user/signup.php?ref=nternet1).

Where's the plug-in to be found?

That seems to be a Webmaster Affiliate Signup page.

I would be interested in this - the url above there does not work for me attm

I know it can be a pain with feedwordpress having to click the update button, fyi the blogsorganiser script will update your feeds automatically for you, and you can specify time intervals etc...I find it very useful :)

if you are interested

(you will need to set up cron jobs tho)

blogsorganizer is the best script to manage blogs I've found.

I probably need to spend some more time with BO but I haven't been able to figure out how to integrate RSS feeds with remote blogs and I don't use the blog creator in BO because I feel there is just too many plugins available in wordpress that adds functionality I'm not ready to live without.

But I do think it is a great script for managing your blogs. Well worth the money spent.
