    Hi all,

    I'm trying to get CC set up on one of my blogs.From what I've seen it doesn't look like CC will pull articles,etc everyday.It has to be done manually?

    Am I missing something? If not; is there a way to make it pull content automatically without having to manually update everyday?

    Deanna

    It will post automatically. You can specify how many posts/articles you want to post. I believe the default is 50. That runs on auto for about (6-7 posts per day) a week. When you get close to the day the posts will stop, just reset for another 50. You can also set that default number higher to 100, 200, whatever amount you want, but the more you set up, the more work your database will have to do, and that may slow your site down. I'm going to write some CC templates soon. PM me if you're interested in that or if you have any other questions about CC.

    How should the dates be set to post one post per day for say two months?

    Also would it show as scheduled post in the post management section?

    One more thing if you have more than one category that you want to post an add a post day, is this possible to do as well?


    thanks

    thanks for the reply, I'll give it try.

    Can you do this for more than one category?

    Except mine always f*cks up the days, i.e. I set it for 60 days and 60 posts and wants to post most of them in the first month, then jack sh*t in the second month. Anybody know why?

    Is there any way to adjust the template for articles so that it automatically adds a read more after say 350 characters? When I use the article feature it is posting these really long articles on the front page.

    It would be nice it could auto insert read more.

    Thanks

    Think you can do that in wordpress itself, and not in CC.

    There should be a tickbox about "post summaries" or something, so that the frontpage of your blog shows and paragraph or two instead of the whole post. Hope that's what you want.
