[Plugin: FeedWordPress] Dead Plugin? (2 posts)

    Is the support for this plugin ended? I've sent in an email to the author over a week ago and this forum seems quiet.

    So I assume there's no point investing time in this plugin. Too bad. It seemed ok except the cron wouldn't work and there were no clear instructions on how to do it - just some vague explanations. Also the cron was somehow calling curl instead of simply calling some php script to update the posts.

    What alternatives are there for "RSS to post" plugins? Anyone?

    The cron job I set up was done in ssh. However, most people don't have that access but there is an ability to set up a cron job in your hosting's Control Panel. Some hosting providers (Dreamhost for example) has you put in the command as is. My hosting provider, through the control panel, requires you to choose how often, and one script to run, and put the path in, and save. (I use Mediatemple.)

    No matter what hosting you use you should be able to access the KB and get the instructions on setting up the cron job for updates.

    I really hope this helps!
