I'm assuming this isn't possible, but I wanted to check to make sure. We're attempting to create a blog display component on our site. Getting it to read the blog info isn't an issue, but we're also wanting the blog data to appear on pages hosted on our site. I know that I could pull in the data on a page, and I could manually create a page to host each blog article. But is there a way for the site to automatically create a page each time a blog updates?

    Hi,

    I think this would be possible using Web Services. In theory, you would have a script that checks the blog data for updates and create a new page if an update is found.

    Some additional thoughts on the script would be to:

    • Perhaps save some kind of cache of the updates so you can easily determine if the blog data updated, which could be an existing post, an entirely new post, or even a deleted post
    • Schedule the script using something like a cron job so it can run automatically for you

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!
