    OK, I have a really dumb WP-O-Matic question.... how do I access it from my WP dashboard?? I installed it, activated it, then went off to find RSS feeds. Now that I have a list of feeds, I can't figure out how to get to WP-O-Matic on my blog to use it.

    :confused:

    Thanks for helping me out, and not ridiculing me!

    :proud:

    I've heard it's compatible up to WP 2.6. May be this is the reason it doesn't display properly?

    For some reason, your kind replies did not go through to my emails.

    I have WP-O-Matic mostly figured out and working EXCEPT it is not automatically updating the RSS feeds. I keep getting this error message from the cronjob~
    curl: (3) <url> malformedMy webhost tech support has done what they can with the cron set up, and says its the plugin script. Any ideas? What URL is malformed? Anyone else have and solve this problem?

    A malformed URL would be an URL that had bad characters in it, I haven't ever run into that problem but you would probably want to check your RSS feed URLs to make sure everything is standard.

    For anyone discovering wp-o-matic for the first time, I used it some time back and the original version had issues with duplicate posting, there is a modified version here on the forum that takes care of that and I think some other issues so you might check that out.

    check the rss feed in the db.
    Many times, an extra character is added and throws off the rss feed.

    Didn't think of the RSS feeds, I'll check into it, thanks. This is my first auto-blog experiement, once I get it squared, the 10 blogs attached to my regular sites will get the upgrade!

    I've been having fun doing it, something totally different from my usual, combining techno-geek, geek girl, a little eWhoring and regular affiliate links. We'll see how it goes!

    :D
