I have an archive database of over 400 custom written articles, that I want to schedule post to my wordpress. I've written a script that auto inserts them into wordpress, ( 4 a day for 100 days ). However I'm missing a trick,as the 'post_status' field in the 'wp_posts' table remains at 'future' after the timestamp lapses. Does anyone know WHAT changes the 'post_status' over to 'publish'? or can anyone explain how the wordpress cron system works? I'm so close yet so far.
Many thanks in advance.
