    Looking for a Plugin for Wordpress

    I have tried and not happy with plugins I have found so far.

    What I want is a plugin that does this:
    In the sidebar of my blog, a separate section where the current posts of blogs are shown.
    The plugin has to take current posts of the blogs I select (by current, every time they update their blog, it is updated on my sidebar).
    The current post must be the linkable part (not the title of the blog, just the post).

    Anyone know of such a plugin?

    Thank you.

    Don't know of a specific plugin, but one programmatic method would be to periodically pull the RSS/Atom feeds from the list of blogs and extract the links to the latest posts.

    It only takes a few lines of code to pull information from the RSS feed. If you know PHP, you can easily format that.

    Still not what I am looking for as not a php coder.
    I have seen lots of blogger and blogspot blogs have this (must be unique to google blogs?).
    Next time I run across a wordpress blog that has this, will beg, whine, and so forth to get their secret.

    Post a link to one of those blogs. Maybe we will recognize a plugin.

    Okay, there is a plugin for blogger, but none that will work on wordpress.
    Checking out http://feedproxy.google.com/ to see how that will fit in.
