I'd been looking for an aggregator plugin for a site I'd been wanting to start, and this one did the trick. It's easy to set up, and if you run into trouble, the author is available and very willing to assist.

This has been one of our easiest plugins and the new features help it work even better. If you're looking for an easy way to share curated content from outside sources on your website, this is the way to do it. Couple it with their browser extension for Chrome and this becomes seamless.

Silicon Speech is a Toastmaster club based in Santa Monica, California. We utilize KBucket as a knowledge library to offer our members with important information and resources. To promote community among all of our members, we established a shared folder where they may curate and share any materials or speeches that are relevant to the activities of our club and organization.
