    Can anybody tell me how to fix this problem with WP Robot? YES, I've been to their forums and tried all the recommended fixes but it does not work for me.

    Here is the problem:

    Everything works fine when I manually post. However all scheduled posts always say "next scheduled post 1/1/1970".

    I've tried everything I could think of. Reinstalling... even setting my OWN cron jobs and it still doesn't fix the problem.

    Can anybody help me with this?

    Thanks

    Most of the time I think that's a problems with incompatible plugins. There are several but the only one I can remember off the top of my head is PPinger.

    I used to have the same problem. I fixed it by deleting any plugins that delete duplicate content, and then it worked again.

    yups.. it's all about plugin crash.
    try to delete pinger or delete duplicate post, and then deactive wprobot and re activate it again.
    Should works fine.

    I found a fix on the WP Robot support forum which works for me - very simple and strange...

    "So I took a look at the campaigns with the 1970 issue. Where I've pasted in keywords from notepad there's an empty row at the bottom of all the ones with the 1970 issue. So I just clicked in the empty row and backspaced to remove it, saved the campaign, and they now all show the correct schedule date."

    Let's say I have 5 keywords in campaign - Edit - click on the last line after all keywords - backspace. But it doesn't save anything. To be able to save it just change timing "Post every x hours". Check all campaigns - it should show correct posting date.

    Also when I have only one keyword I've typed it second time, backspace, changed timing, save. The best works when first change timing and last backspace. I am using v.3.40 - it works!

    just copy all your campaigns one by one, it'll fix the 'next post' issue

    Actually, it's not all about the plugins. I have some domains working fine, with the same plugins as the domains where the problem exists. The deactivation strategy didn't work for me.

    The rebuilding campaigns only worked temporarily, but in a day or two reset to the 1970 issue.

    I also completely reinstalled WP Robot.

    It's frustrating, but I still have plenty of domains where it's working. I haven't set up cron jobs, because after the last big G update, I haven't been as interested in throwing up tons of posts a day.

    I'm still pro WP-Robot and I'm glad I bought it, but I do wish it worked like it did.

    I second that it could be an incompatible / rogue plugin. It happened to me before.

    This is what I did and hope this will help you too. Disable all your plugins on your current WP installation. Add them 1 by 1 and you should be able to identify if the problem depends on a plugin. Don't modify the cron jobs, if you are on a half-decent hosting it should be working ootb.

    yeah, the plugins are quite buggy I'm finding out. Comes with open source, but sirgold has it right. Reverse engineer!
