    In search of a mass posting program to where I can post 100+ posts at a time onto a wordpress website! Let me know if you have any ideas thanks,

    DoHNuT

    Edit: Each Post is separated by a line in a .txt document if that matters

    I had to do that once for one of my WP site (a website about a music band, with 500+ songs' lyrics to plug into the lyrics category.)

    I simply dumped them directly into the mysql database; took no time :D

    So as long as I have them separated by a line they should be considered different posts?

    I haven't properly tested but I wrote a script for you which seems to work fine.

    I can't paste code to help you as the php quotes don't work.

    I have put the code here for you though pastebin D()T C()M/967yxyQx

    You need to place all your text files in the same folder, edit the top of the script with your user details on your blog and run it. It will post all the text files to your blog in the category you entered.

    You will need a file called IXR_Library()php()inc which I also can't attach but you can google for it and put it in the same directory.

    Thanks, but the only problem I have is all my articles are in a singular .text file and not multiple, which i'm assuming this script was created for.

    For example my text is

    article1 article1
    article1 article1

    article 2 article2
    article 2 article2

    I have a way that will post text files in to a category of choice. From the admin area click and go, you will need to upload all txt files for the post through ftp.

    The txt files need to be set up correctly, it is not difficult to do. I use it frequently, loads 100 posts to one category at a time. I will need time to get it together.

    Are you interested?

    Yeah as long as the posts are too hard to set up because currently doing each one manually. Could save alot of time!

    Also, if you like I could alter my script to loop just a single file?

    Let me know, do you have a small example file so I could see it?

    You might try the free auto blog software (found in this forum) It can auto post from text files I believe.

    PM sent let me know when you download it so I can remove the files, ok?

    Forgot to tell you just unzip, then upload the file and folder to the plugins folder of wp.

    I also use a multi replace software for edit of the text files (100 or more at a time). It only takes a minute or two when you do a couple. Let me know if you need it?

    Post questions here, I will help if I can.

    Description: Post all of the articles that are in a directory to a specific category, and schedule the post date.

    Anyone else interested in this wp auto post plugin let me know?
