This plugin will allow you to build from scratch an autoblogging system, based on Reddit feeds you define. This plugin provides one solution to the ongoing search for new blog content.

Other plugin features:

This plugin requires a Reddit API Aceess Token. How do I get one?

First you need an application id and secret so reddit knows your application. You get this information by going to https://www.reddit.com/prefs/apps and clicking "are you a developer? create an app..."
App Information Screen
When registering your app, it's important to choose the correct and relevant app "type," as 'Web app'.
Be sure to give the app a reasonable name and description. The redirect URI is important - for web apps, it points to a URL on a web server that you control. Define it as the plugin instructs you.
The part underlined in red is your client secret. You should never share this. Non-confidential clients (installed apps) do not have a secret.

You can define variables in the 'List of Possible Variables:' textfield. Here you can define values to variables, values which will be used in the random sentence forming. Variables can be defined as follows:
