stable working Blog-By-Email release? (7 posts)

    I've been told in IRC that the 1.0.2 release is horrible when doing blog-by-email. I've experienced this to be true. It sees some e-mails (2 out of the 4 i've sent so far) and the emails that it did get, it dismissed the user/pass as invalid, which is not true.
    My real question is, if anyone got blog-via-email working, what version of WP are you using? This feature is critical, and I'm willing to install a version of WP that has this feature with some extent of reliability.

    the latest nightly works exceptionally well. It uses a secret email account, so anything that goes to that secret mail account gets posted on your blog.

    Do you need a cron job for this to run?

    Yes, or you can have some service like
    http://uptime.openacs.org/uptime/
    check that wp-mail.php page for you periodically. :P
    On second thoughts, you should search for a use some other such service, since alal uptime checks for a "uptime.txt" file, but you get the idea :)

    Actually, Uptime works fine! ;-)
    I just added echo "Success" as the first line of code in wp-mail.php and it works. Uptime only cares that the word "success" is somewhere in the page contents. Thanks for the tip!
