Have a look at the syndication modules in the repository.

Thanks for your reply, I dont think I was clear enough, I am looking for a blogging module that imports data from anther blog that has exported in XML or atom RSS.

I am not sure how the modules you suggest would help me with this?

install one of the syndication mods (rss readers), upload the xml file to your server and direct the module to read it...

just a guess.

ok that gets the aggregator to read it but how the blog mod reads it I dont know. Besdies news and popupnblog are any of these blog modules still being supported.

nobunobu no longer does
Xpress is only on version 2.05 whilst wordpress is on 2.25
WeBLog has a number of discssions but no further development

Does wordpress 2.25 have features you want that are not available in 2.05?

yes, as a plain blogging tool, news is better than Xpress (wordpress 2.05) latest wordpress is good because of the plugins that extend its capabilities. also its ability to stop spam in trackback comment etc. through Akismet

The reality is xpress is not a good module, its more of a make do, there are many probelms to pick one like Wordpress it is slow.
Many years before I used WeBlog but this had trackback spam problems, then I moved to xpress then wordpress proper, now my blog uses the blogger API through a plugin for the template website software called RapidWeaver. I would like to be able to use XOOPS mainly because i could intergrate Galleries and Blog and more. I have been making sites for others in XOOPS and for my macmend.com site but cannot see a way to make my blog to XOOP at the moment
I will probabaly go back to Wordpress

I miss the weBlog module, it was a nice simple blog module, it would be great if some clever person resurrected it with some new features. I love the XOOPS wordpress module but it just doesn't integrate as well like the old weBlog module did eg. with the editors etc.

Oh I wish I could code, I really do have a lot of respect for the coders and developers, but alas I just aint clever enough to even attempt it :o(

Then we hope that XPress devoloppers will upgrade it from
2.05 to 2.25 as soon as possible.
