    I've got like 4 or so feeds in wp-o-matic, but I'm noticing that although it works fine when I tell it to fetch stuff, it doesn't seem to be posting anything new when I go to check it on a daily basis? Anybody else have this problem or know how to fix it?

    I have the same problem and I am pretty sure I enter the cron job as requested as well.

    Yes, I entered it exactly as it said in the instructions. Also, do you guys know of any other threads on here to get other autoblogging posters (alternatives to wp-o-matic)?

    Welcome to the club. I got so fkn fed up with that shit I haven't even looked at it for weeks. $50 to anyone who has extensive experience with WP, WP-O-Matic and RSS feeds who can get my site rolling automatically, updating automatically and letting me work on other shit.

    Couldn"t agree more! I just installed feedworpress and I'm testing it now to see if it works automatically.

    I'm almost positive its your cron job, I didn't set mine up right the first time and it would fetch but I had to do it manually. After I changed it it auto fetches at schedueled times fine.

    Post the *exact* cron job code/path you used to get this little bleeder to run.

    I was just reading that guys blog a couple days ago about that plugin, let us know how it goes? I'm just figuring out RSS feed posting myself, definitely wouldn't be a good person to make any comments on these types of plugins.

    so far the best rss feeders are wp-o-matic and feedwordpress.
    i would not bother using yaab! also, yahoo answers (for drip-feeding fresh data) is a
    great plug-in.

    Actually you need to make sure your host server platform supports cron commands.

    For example: If you use GoDaddy for your host they have 2 platforms to choose from, Linux and windows.

    If you set up in windows platform on Godaddy it doesn't support cron command you have to switch to their linux platform to use cron commands.


    I am sure there are other hosts like this so I would check with them as well.

    Hope this helps.
