I'm seeing a few different ones. however I'm looking for one that can pull in from an rss feed and turn around and make a new thread for each item that is pulled in from said feed. Does this exist?

that works fairly well, i was thinking something that would pull the entire article from the rss feed. images and all rather than just a few sentences and a continue reading button.

I don't think importing whole content is usually possible through rss feeds, because the host website can control how much content to show in rss, so you can't bypass that limit through rss.

The alternative way here is using a scraper or something which visits the page and scrapes the content and than copy it. However i don't think xenforo have any such addon.
