[resolved] "Writing by e-mail" doesn't work (3 posts)

    I've filled in all the details within the Admin panel, created the appropriate account, but when I email the top secret address, articles do not get published and the email sits in the mailbox.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated,
    Michael

    Now I understand. There's no way to repeatedly call for wp-mail.php so I needed wp-cron to do that.

    It doesn't auto launch, but launches when someone visits your site. If yours is like mine, low traffic sites don't get the emailed blog entries posted quickly.

    Oh, and email must be plain text, btw.

    Thanks Michael, that's good to know, it was on my list of "to do" to figure out how to get this going.
