Mike, please keep the solutions group informed about RSS feed aggregation projects. Thanks.

I also moved everything over to OccupyHack, and "organization" GitHub account, if there are any people that should be added as admins to create repos, add people, and stuff, please let me know. I think all the stuff from some of the Hackathons this weekend will be posted here. https://github.com/occupyhack

Yeah, I knew some stuff was i wordpress, I didn't think the entire site was, but if it is, no worries. These scripts would work for any php site for the views when pulling in RSS feed data as long as a module or other tool was built to pull in the RSS feeds, which is why I articulated all the specific steps here I had used to get it working.
I also thought Occupy Together was still Drupal, but I know I could be completely wrong.

Mike, I think the new site is WordPress based.

Hey, I posted this on the Open Source List yesterday:
After a long time of looking into RSS feed aggregation tools for Drupal,
I think the best one to use would be Feeds, which is an extension of
the deprecated SimpleFeeds. This needs to be installed, along with
CTools and Job Scheduler as helper modules. Then I wrote a series of
Views (which assume the View module is also installed), which I have
attached to source code for and also will be placing on GitHub (will
send out a link to that later). This would allow customization of the
feed pages themselves, but distributes the underlying logic. Someone
will have to figure out how the sites would like to import all the RSS
feeds. I pulled the list from here http://resources.occupyweb.org/feeds
All that should be needed it to install those
modules, import the feeds, and then copy in the code for the views. Most
of the views are very similar copies to how Drupal will generate the
feed code on it's own, with a few exceptions. These will take all feeds
and display, and will display on region/location/network. I will be
creating more feeds that will filter based on GA, events, etc., but this
is the start.
Another option would be to solely use Feed
Aggregator, which is built into the core library. This has issues with
views and I believe is using the older FeedAPI. It makes creating groups
for feeds a lot easier, but gives a lot less control over the content
displayed. I could be wrong in these assumptions though, so if anyone
has more experience on this, feel free to correct me. I still think the
views should be used, but would love to here a better way to consolidate
and parse out all of this.
Here is the link to the github directory where all this is stored https://github.com/jjensenmike/rss_feed_aggregation
