    I hope there is a quick and easy answer to this question.

    I realise that Import-Rss.php in not really developed for syndication. But I need to be able to import a changing a rss.xml local feed file regularly.

    The way i would normally do this sort of thing would be to set up a Cron Job. However, the normal way i would normally set one doen not seem to work:

    php -f /home/username/public_html/blog/wp-admin/import-rss.php

    I have also tried it with the following:

    php -f /home/username/public_html/blog/wp-admin/import-rss.php?step=1

    Any ideas?

    Oh, and yes the rss.xml file is read Ok when I manually go to the import-rss.php file in the browser and use it.

    Thanks for your help.

    Kind regards

    Richard.

    Hmm, I can't recall if the import scripts require you to be logged in to use them.

    You seem to be looking for a "re-blogger" script, of which there are many out there (and at least a half-dozen recent conversations on reblogging). I don't have mine yet working, or I'd offer it up as a test case. ;) ;)
