    Hi,

    Thanks, but I understand how to convert feeds to posts, but I do not know how he pulls the data to display all posts on one page?

    You can do something similar with datafeedr. I can't work out if that it what he is using or it is a custom plugin.

    Yeah I have thought about datafeedr just checking it out now, not convinced on how safe it is to use, what kind of footprint it leaves in Google etc

    I don't think there are any specific url patterns google can pick up on as you can rename all categories and shop names, as well as all datafeedr files aw well.

    Create a plugin that queries your imported datafeed and displays the quantity of results you want, in the format you want them. Add a few extras for paging and filtering (ie. display search reuslts, category etc.) and you're there.

    A plugin is a good way to do this as then you can sit it on any WP page and be theme agnostic.

    I was also looking for something to do this also and found a bit of code on a forum somewhere - I haven't had a chance to try it yet, so if you give it a go and it works please let me know.

    You might want to change this to suit your website/application:


    <div class="new-wrapper">
    <h2><a href="the permalink stuff do not copy this"><?php the_title(); ?></a>
    //etc etc etc - whatever you need inside the loop
    </div> <!-- closing div of new-wrapper -->

    [[[eg:]]]

    <div class="new-wrapper">
    <h3><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h3>
    <p>By <?php the_author_posts_link(); ?>, <?php the_time('F j, Y'); ?></p>
    <p><?php the_excerpt(); ?></p>
    <?php comments_popup_link('Post a comment', 'One comment', '% comments', '', 'Comments off'); ?>
    </div> <!-- closing div of new-wrapper -->


    Then your theme's style.css, you add the following declaration:


    .new-wrapper { float: left; width: 200px; height: 200px; margin: 0px 20px 20px 0px; } ((change width, height, margin values as you like))
