Support » Plugin: tao-schedule-update » Compatible with Export/Import tool?

  • We have a number of international sites that often get the same updates as our US site with minor changes for contact info etc. Normally, I’ll add a page, configure SEO items (via Yoast) etc. and schedule it page(s) on the US site, then export it and import it into the international sites, make the minor edits and voila, I have a new page schedule on over a half dozen sites in much less time than it would take to replicate the page manually on all the sites.

    I can see that if I schedule a change, using Tao… the schedule edit page/post is indeed exported and imported, but will the scheduled item happen? Each site is in a different time zone, how will that be handled/processed, and can the scheduled publish time be edited once it’s imported on a site?

    for your setup to work you will also need to transfer the cron entry from your wp_options table. If you want all the changes to be published at the same time across all sites just copying the cron option will be enough. If you need the changes to publish always at (let’s say) 8am in every timezone you will have to manually adjust the timestamps of the cron options.
