    Hi @EpicSwoleness. From what I can tell, that website is just scripted in HTML, maybe manually. It's mostly just links to other sources with a few images and ads. If it has some type of backend that publishes the HTML, it's hard to say. You could probably make something similar in a number of ways, like with WordPress. I did find this Quora post that touches on it. That may help.

    Hi @EpicSwoleness,

     

    For aggregation there are a number of wordpress tools available.  I use wpRSSAggregator.  In today's environment there are a number of considerations for content inclusion from other sources.  Many sites with  rss feeds will restrict the pull from the feed to an excerpt unless you contact them for full feed inclusion.

     

    To address many of these issues consider a tool like Kudani - http://kudani.com/ .  I've had a subscription for years and its blossomed into not only an outstanding tool, but the education you get on the curation/publishing process is invaluable.

     

    Two other good links:

    Hope this helps,

    James
