    If you can't use/setup CRON , use a service that checks your site periodically, like
    http://uptime.openacs.org/uptime/

    Thanks for that link, it will work wonders for me and is a great fix for my situation. However - is there any reason why a plugin to the above effect wouldn't work?

    I found the current email blog plugin didnt seem to work properly, it added the post to the database fine, but for some odd reason I had to log in to my wordpress admin area and edit the post before it actually showed up on my site.
    Is this a normal behaviour so that you have to approve each post or am i missing something?

    Anyone knows more of those services offering free crons? None of those sites are up now... :(

    It appears that somebody has actually done this - I just came across a section in the WordPress Wiki at http://wiki.wordpress.org/index.php/Cron%20Plugin

    If you're still looking for free crons...my webhost apparently allows unlimited
    free crons with basic hosting.
    Only problem is, I don't know a cron from a chronic headache!

    Sorry....forgot to mention....webhost is: UKHOST4U . VERY reasonable rates!
    I paid 29.99 pounds (about $55.00, U.S.) for Domain for a year, 25000 meg bandwidth/month, 1000 meg of space, and more free pgms than I could ever use, including one touch installation of things like WordPress, PHP-Nuke, guestbooks, file management, etc, etc. Unlimited subdomains, unlimited POP email accounts...and more. All in all, a terrific deal...and crons are included.
