Categories not assigned correctly (3 posts)

    The categories are not getting assigned correctly when it imports but only sometimes. I have the latest version of the plugin but for some reason when it imports posts it puts them in an extra category. All of the feeds are setup to go into 1 category and some of them do, however some of them go into that 1 category and another. I cannot seem to find anything that separates those specific ones from the rest. They are from different feeds and there is nothing that stands out that would tell it to go into those separate feeds. Anyone else having this issue or know what the problem is?

    I have come across what the actual issue is. The problem is with the updates running when no user is logged in. Since they do not have permissions to add categories it removes all of the categories that are assigned. Now by default in wordpress if there are no categories assigned it goes into the default category (usually uncategorized unless changed in the settings). So a solution that I have come up with is to log in a user with permissions when the cron is running so that the correct categories get assigned when doing so. The challenge however is to not keep that user signed in after the cron has finished (to keep from users being able to visit that url and be logged in as a user on your site). It would be nice to have this integration done in the plugin so that I do not have to override. Can the author please comment here if he would have these updates made in the plugin or if we should just use the hooks.
