SendFeed

Allows WordPress bloggers to send email updates to a given email address any time an RSS feed is updated.

  1. Upload the /sendfeed/ folder and files to your WordPress plugins folder, located in your WordPress install under /wp-content/plugins/

  2. Browse in the WordPress admin interface to the plugin activation page and activate the SendFeed plugin.

  3. The plugin should now be installed and activated. The first time you visit management page, the appropriate tables will be created in the database if necessary.

  4. You may create new contact forms by using the controls found on the Settings > SendFeed page.

  5. The email scheduling of SendFeed will function best on high traffic sites. If your site does not receive very much traffic, you may want to set up a cron script to load the wp-cron.php page from your site at regular intervals. Some information on doing this can be found here: http://www.satollo.net/how-to-make-the-wordpress-cron-work

    Cron example running every 15 minutes: */15 * * * * /usr/bin/php -f /path/to/your/site/wp-cron.php (You will want to test this on the commandline of your server to ensure it is working as expected) (You may also need to use /usr/bin/php-cgi instead, depending on your server configuration)

    Alternative: Use a third party service like this one... https://www.setcronjob.com/

  6. Have fun, enjoy using the SendFeed plugin, and don't forget to come visit us. For the latest version, more extensive documentation or to stay updated see our SendFeed blog.
