Well, it's expected to get the result repeated if there's no new post made...
that creates a tiny little problem... if you have it checking the site every 30 seconds seconds for new posts it will just keep repeating the same already mentioned post if no new one is created. i tried creating a variable using

set %norepost $+($hget(data4,1).item)

and checking against it before messaging the channel. unfortunately i couldn't make this work. any ideas on how to check if you've already used a post before proceeding with the action?

this is what i have so far, but it stops displaying new posts to the channel :(
