    I just switched hosts (now using hostgator).

    I have 8 Autoblogs, and moved the sites over, and 4 of them seem to be working just fine. (still posting, and saved the DB)

    But the other 4, just don't post my content.

    They say the next time to post is March 24th (and its the 25th now). I deleted the keywords withing wprobot, and re-added them, but that didnt seem to do anything.

    Has anyone else run into this? Seems pretty weird.

    Thanks for the replies guys :D

    It seems that 7 are working now, and 1 is not.

    They seemed to start working on their own, so I'm going to give my last some some extra time, then if it doesnt start working I'll try the suggested ideas.

    I CAN post manually, but the "Next Post" Time does not change.

    This does happen sometimes. I tcan be caused by a plugin conflict. If most of your keywords are now set to post in the future then leave the rest. WP Robot has a nack of fixing this kind of error itself after being left to run for a few hours (around 12 - 24).

    hm...

    I'm still waiting on it, and it has not fixed itsself.

    It's pretty weird. I don't know if I should start playing with it, and have to wait even longer, or if it's just broken, and not gonna work at all.

    All the rest of my sites work though.

    WpRobot is really helpful in generating Bulk Blog postings. But it is necessary to ensure the plugin is installed properly.

    make sure you don't have any incompatible plugins installed. The main one of note is the 'delete duplicate content' plugin.. it will screw up WP-Robot every time.

    Check to see what permissions are set for the wp-cron.php file. If it is anything but 0644 you have to change it back and WP Robot should start posting again.

    Did you delete your keywords and re-add them? I would try that and see if it helps. Are you having issues with certain modules of WPRobot or the entire plugin itself? If your having issues with certain modules then you may need to configure them properly.

    No your wp-cron.php should be 0644. That will make it work again

    wp-cron.php is loaded via the webserver and should not be executable (mode 755).

    If your wp-robot is not auto posting, what dates do you have in your keyword list? Are they 2010, or 1970?

    It is not always plugins that confuse wp-robot, sometimes the themes do as well, if they are special ones as they come with built-in plugins (the theme acts as a large plugin). Ones that are known to cause issues are the wootheme themes.

    Also, simply deactivating plugins also does not always help, as some badly written plugins also mess WP-Robot up, simply by having them uploaded. One to note is Quick Cache. (Super Cache is fine, and works great with WP-Robot).

    If you have Quick Cache installed, you may need to delete it in order to have WP-Robot work again.
