It is not in his zip file, but you can find it in your admincp\rssposter.php, I think.

One request that would make this perfect:

- Start a new thread after x replies

Also, a bug:

- If the threadid is set to 0 and the RSS bot runs two or more feeds at the same time it jumbles the replies with the other feeds running at the same time. It doesn't set a threadid in these cases and continues for ever jumbling the posts with other threads created by other feeds. In these cases the forum settings for the feeds are also ignored.

Script take all content from RSS feed. Link "more" is just a link from RSS feed from field named 'link'. If you want to take more, then you need a RSS feed with more info.
