    I am trying out an Autoblog in my Local server using xamp.

    1. I installed xamp
    2. I installed WP
    3. I installed and activated WP Robot plugin
    4. In the WP Robot setting, I added a new keyword as shown in the attached picture.
    4. When I clicked on Post Now button, it gives an fatal error -

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function curl_init() in C:\xampp\htdocs\wordpress\wp-content\plugins\wpr1.2\modules\articles.php on line 206

    Any ideas how can I resolve it, please?

    EDIT: I have added this line to my C:\xampp\php\pho.ini

    PHP:
    extension=php_curl.dll
    It did not help either

    Post your articles.php file and I will take a look. I don't use curl with php but generally that error occurs in libcurl when it isn't including the header files correctly.

    I did really not make any changes to my articles.php file. I just downloaded, installed and activated this plug-in. I anyway have attached the file for your kind reference.

    Thanks mate for coming forward to help out!

    Xammp is not cURL enabled and also can't rewrite.

    GUESS WHAT? WOW!!! Lol Sorry for the caps on! It WORKS now...
    I am using Windows and as a matter of fact - if something is not working, just RESTART your system and voila it works :)

    Thanks for the help. Now I know xamp can handle cURL.
