Post By Email
Send posts to one assigned page (2 posts)

    Can you tell me if it is possible to send a post via email to one particular page ?

    At the moment the plugin only sends multiple posts and publishes them individually.

    I want to assign these posts to a particular page when I send an email post.

    Any kind of advice as to how I could achieve this would be gratefully received as there is little to no info on the web for this seemingly simple task.

    Thanks

    Hi MissSlsp,

    You're correct that right now, the plugin can only create individual posts. Can you tell me more about what you mean by "assign these posts to a particular page" -- are you talking about adding each email to one Page (as in, a page created under Pages->Add New on the WordPress Admin dashboard), or about having them all show up on a single sub-page on your site (like a category or tag archive page)?

    You can accomplish the latter by assigning a category or tag to the posts using shortcodes. You could even customize your theme not to show those posts on the front page.

    The former is a lot more complicated and I'm not sure how it would work, but I'm open to suggestions. Would each new email's contents get appended to the existing page? Before or after the existing content? How would you tell WordPress which page you wanted it to appear on?
