    Hey!

    My semi-autoblog social site is almost ready.. need some help though!

    I'm looking for a wordpress plugin which would catch all posts i'm publishing and setting interval schedule time for them. I have a bot which i overlook and choose quality content for my test site, then mass post 100's of pictures and articles into the site, but i dont want them to post as one huge clump!
    Is there any way for wordpress to receive all my posts that i'm publishing and giving them schedule based on some time interval?

    With 1-2 hours of work i would have high quality auto-blog set for a year easily and go for next site, i will write tutorial about this when i get this working properly.
    I'v tried autoblog scripts which brings in RSS content but some niches lacks in RSS feeds badly.

    Hopefully someone can recommend script like this so i can start bringin in some cash while i'm writing my thesis :) Graduation reward!


    EDIT: posting software has schedule in it... but i dont want to leave my computer 24/7 on for a year! would make more sense to have all articles in blog queue

    I find alot of result going around drafts, i would need all of my posts i'm doing converted into drafts which i think could be done (i tried but i didnt find all entries in post.php) by messing with wordpress script that when publish is clicked, it would actually save it as draft so when the software tries to submit article it would go to drafts... i'm not that good at coding so i cant do that myself.
    wordpress auto poster gives out RSS feed autoblogs in my google.

    EDIT: like this one.. http://wordpress.org/plugins/auto-post-posts/ it will only post drafts.

    Ok so this will catch all my submitted posts and give them scheduled times based on interval value given to plugin?
    Last time i used this for movie blog, it didnt have anything close to it (might be different story now tough).

    Any FREE alternatives? as this is not huge task for any plugin (i assume)

    Why not to save your posts as drafts and install one of the plugins to schedule draft posts?

    I think this is the plugin you are looking for. Its a paid plugin(wp auto poster 2.0) but I found it through simple googling and it works well as I did test it out with few of my blogs some time back.

    All you have to do is import the txt files and choose an option for scheduling. If you want to add images you can do that by adding it in html format.

    Hope this works for you

    Submission software doesnt have draft option in it, i sent ticket to their support to concider adding it into functions. Draft scheduler would work then with the idea i have in my mind.

    Thanks! but this is not exactly what i'm looking for, i have a software from blastersuite which posts content into wordpress, it has scheduling but i need the scheduling part on serverside so i dont need to have my PC running 24/7 over a year for automation.

    I appreciate all the replies i get into this thread so keep them coming, i would love to get this done and under looking glass for inspection before i publish this method as this wont be saturated easily.

    Not exactly what i'm looking for, but we are getting closer!
    There is alot of wordpress submitting tools... which has scheduling in them in some cases but it would mean that i would need to have my PC running 24/7 for years.

    I need a plugin which will give scheduled times for posts which are posted with external tools |||OR||| help in modifying wordpress post.php script so that instead of you clicking "Publish" and it publishing your post immidietly, it would save post as draft, so switching "publish" and "save draft" button scripts.

    I would appreaciate greatly if someone with PHP knowledge could post solution for this! would be happy to share this method with whom who can do modification right now, this has proven to make cash with very low effort (http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...emi-automated-social-vacuum-site-journal.html)

    As far as i understand with the above plugin you do not need to keep your PC running. You just import all the articles into wordpress one time and then the plugin
    will post them as per the set schedule as the articles are already there in the wordpress database.

    So the external tool you are using needs to spit out articles on your PC and then these articles can be uploaded to wordpress.

    So that might help, to make this broth pot even meatier, the external tool also has other functions and it has it's own formats for lists.

    I need to think this through now... it might work with my setup i'm going for.

    Will post back if it works or not!

    If you upload images through the web interface (depending on your hosting you can copy/paste a few hundreds in 1 go), here are 3 plugins to help you out with posting and scheduling:
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/automatic-featured-image-posts/ - "creates a new post with a Featured Image every time an image is uploaded"
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/drafts-scheduler/ - great if you want the new posts created to get as drafts, so you can schedule them.
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/hungred-image-fit/ - this should make the post images the size that you need.

    Yeah i'm hoping to be able to use Drafts Scheduler, it's great and just what i want to use, i just need to modify wpadmin/post.php (not sure if that's the correct one) so that when i click (or the external software clicks) "publish", it would in reality launch "Save draft" script.

    The function to get all new posts as drafts is somewhere on those plugins. No need to modify any php file.

    automatic featured image posts.... will see if it does what it's supposed to do :) thanks for that gentle poke!

    EDIT: Looked good but didnt work, it picked up image from external tools post but external tool was able to post it immidiately + in drafts you can see same post with different permalink.
    I wonder if i can export drafts from hidden blog to my moneyblog and schedule then... in that case this plugin could work as i need it to work.
