If you were running this plugin pre-2.3 and have upgraded, you need to go into the Feeder menu and click the Switch feeds to new retrieval setup button.

Project goals:

  • Retrieve items within the WordPress dashboard as an independent process (no required attachment to external servers)

  • Retrieve their full content to read from within WordPress's dashboard.

  • Allow individuals or groups to mark items for consideration and discuss them within the dashboard, either from the retrieved items or via bookmarklet.

  • Easily post about retrieved items as the end point of a smoothly integrated editorial process.

  • Provide the entire process in a attractive, responsive and mobile friendly design.

  • Provide an open source back-end that is easily extendable for other developers and that can be hooked into by other independent WordPress plugins.

Testing, contributions, and feedback welcome.
