Automatic posting no longer working (4 posts)

    Hi there,

    I've had Instaroll running for a couple of months now, set up to automatically post images with a certain tag every hour on this site - http://robinparker.co.uk/shotbymando. For a while it seemed to work fine, but then for reasons I don't understand, it stopped auto-posting. I've no idea what I might have changed to cause this problem; any ideas/suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Robin

    Hi. Sorry for the problem.

    Did you update the plug-in, or maybe deactivated it and reactivated, recently?

    If you go to the plug-in settings, is the automatic posting still active? If yes, can you try disabling it, saving, and enabling it again and saving?

    Anyway, do you see any error message in your browser's console?
    And in the server logs?

    One more thing: due to how WordPress event scheduling works, the scheduler starts a scheduled event, after the specified time is passed but can't perform any action by itself: the process can start only on a page hit.

    When a user visits a page, the scheduler checks if enough time has passed and, in this case, executes the remote action. If no page is visited, the scheduler can't start.

    Hi there.

    Thanks for the quick response, I'll try your suggestions; I'm on shared hosting so I don't think I'll be able to access the server logs (?) but I can definitely check the browser console and see if anything happens in there. I'll let you know how I get on,

    Thanks,
    Robin
