    I have installed it correctly, and from what i can guess the cron jobs looks okay, the only thing is it will not automatically fetch the feeds. It does fetch them If I click on fetch, but what I wanted is for this to be done automatically. Am I missing something really simple here?

    Also, I have tried Caffinated content but from what I can see it looks like it will only fetch info from yahoo answers and articles, is there anyway that I can put a rss feed in there and have it fetch it automatically at intervals or is that something that I would have to do manually as well?

    I let wp-o-matic do everything on it's own, which it does, but I find it does not pull full feeds well, so I use feedwordpress with Yahoo Pipes.

    Also, CC won't pull rss.

    What does it say about when it's next scheduled to pull and all in your options? Has the countdown finished and it just doesn't do anything?

    Also, what did you set the option to in the wp-o-matic settings?

    Hi,

    Yes, the countdown finished and absolutley nothing happens. I can still manually pull them, but this will obviously take alot of time.

    options:
    Unix Cron: Ticked
    Enable Logging: Ticked
    Enable Logging stdout: Ticked
    Cache Images: Ticked

    I've been using FeedWordpress for almost a year now, and it works like a charm. I never had a reason to use WP-O-Matic at all.

    I even took the step of having a PHP programmer that I know write a custom plugin that replaces certian words with synonyms automatically. I understand that there is now a free plugin that does the same thing, but I have not tested it.
