Rotating links from RSS and using titles from RSS

I am trying to use RSS to rotate links sent to the Bookmarking sites but it isn't working as expected and just sent 1 link to 3 different site even though i've set up option to use 100s of links for a single site. 

Also i'm trying to use the litle from the RSS to submit to bookmark site but there doesn't seem to be any macro for it or i've missed something. It would be better to submit the links from the RSS using their own title.

    not for social bookmarks as it is defined there like this....




  • SvenSven
    An rss as input will use <title> as anchor and <link> as URL.
  • For bookmarks, it is clearly using website title from options for submission for any link. how do i make it use the to-be-submitted link title?
  • SvenSven
    show a sample please as I don't know what you really mean.
  • Sorry my mistake. i should have added them. 

    I've setup a project to take links from a rss and post links to only bookmark sites. submit 1 link only one time but with multiple submits when new links appear on the RSS. I've setup the feed and the links are coming up nicely. But it is using text from "Website Title" as a title for submission.
    like this:

    I want it to use the title from the link being submitted from the RSS. Is there a way for it to use the title from the link grabbed from RSS?

  • bascially it is not using <title> from the RSS feed
  • SvenSven
    just use %anchor_text% in "Website Title"

    I tried doing that. It then basically rotates generic texts like "look more here", "pop up on the next site".
  • SvenSven
    disable generic anchors for that project, same as domain anchors or alike.
  • They aren't turned on nothing is on.

  • SvenSven
    Ahh ok, then your rss feed delived <title> tags with too many words. Then SER doesn't consider that as a anchor and uses the default one, which is empty so SER uses a generic one just to have at least something.

    But you can also try the macro %meta_title% which will use the <title> tag of the to-submit website.
  • I think i went over macros and wiki to find a way to use title from the RSS for days and it's really not something i want. could you possibly make it use the real title? it would look more natural to submit links with their actual titles rather than just generics
  • SvenSven
    well whats wrong with %meta_title% then?
  • isn't %meta_title% the title of the site i'm submitting to? like my domain is with title "Domain" and the site i'm submitting to is which has title "Bookmark". which one will it use?
    I thought it will use "Bookmark"
  • Thanks for the patience to help. it's working now. :)
