    I get the dreaded 1970 schedule date for my next Cron job. Reading the WP Robot forum was little or no help.

    I don't want to get rid of any of my plugins so I can't deactivate them.

    I can set up a Unix Cron job.

    Is there anyway to get the cPanel cron job to make only 3 posts per day.

    I use shared hosting and have 5 blogs, so I will need them to not run at the same time. I will have server resource usage problems.

    I have more than 3 keywords for each campaign so I don't want them all to post. That would be too many posts per day.

    Using the Cron job in WP Robot would be great if it didn't have the 01/1/1970 00:00:00 problem. It would post every 8 hours and that would be my 3 posts but, no luck.

    Anyone have any ideas on how to fix my problem.

    Thanks for your consideration

    For crying out loud, you revived a thread from 2011.
