Full-Content is a plugin for the Blog Riffer RSS feed reader/blogging tool.
It fetches and stores full content for RSS feeds that only contain summaries of each item.
There are several reasons why an RSS feed may contain only a summary rather than the full content of each item:
So that the RSS feed can't be used to duplicate the content of the website.
So that readers who want the complete story will have to visit the website,
where they can be advertised to, etc.
To save bandwidth by not delivering several full stories each time the feed is checked for new items.
Our purpose in creating this plugin WAS NOT to help people to circumvent the will of publishers.
Please do not use it to do so.
Blog Riffer is not an "autoblogging" tool.
It does not automatically post content from RSS feeds.
And we do not condone re-publishing full content.
Instead, the purpose of this plugin is to make it easy to excerpt quotes from RSS feeds and write posts based on them.
By default, it always links back to the original item.
You should always keep these links to properly attribute any content that you quote.
Publishing these links often benefits you by getting you "pingback" links from the original publisher,
and linking to related pages has been cited by search engine insiders as a way to get higher rankings.
The Full-Content plugin can be configured to store the entire webpage that an item links to,
or just a part of the page (to avoid displaying page headers, navigation, footers, and other content that you don't need in your feed reader).
The content is stored in your database so that it doesn't need to be reloaded from the publisher's server each item you view the item.
The plugin can be configured to fetch the full content as soon as a new item is seen in the feed.
Or, to save bandwidth, you can have it only fetch full content for items that you read (any that you skip over never have to be fetched).
Finally, you can have it show you the summary information by default, and only fetch the full content if you click a link to load it.
The Filter Plugin enables you to conveniently block unwanted content in feeds that you're subscribed to
(for example, if you don't want to see "weekly summary" posts, certain regular announcements, etc.)
The RSS parsing engine for Blog Riffer is a library named CaRP Evolution.
Blog Riffer includes the core CaRP Evolution library and its MySQL plugin,
which enables CaRP to store data in a MySQL database.
You can also use CaRP Evolution to display content from RSS and Atom feeds on your websites.
