  • Resolved gembrook


    My Postie installation will only start doing a temporary Draft post, and then delete the email. It used to work, but is failing now, possibly due to upgrade to 3.5.1 maybe? I have deleted and reinstalled, Postie but it seems to have remembered all the email and user settings.

      Running the test gives

    and clicking the Run Postie button gives

    Except that instead of posting it just creates the draft post, in this case post 1260

    Please send a sample message to and I will take a look.

    Thanks for your response
    Just to confirm, you would like me to email to that address a message that what I would normally send to the email address associated with Postie posts? Or were you looking for some sort of error message?

    Please send a message that is having the issue. If possible please don’t forward a copy as this changes the internal structure of the email.

    ok, just send a message directly from my mobile as I would often do. But all messages regardless of source (mobile or pc) or format (plain rich or html) or attachments seem to have the same problem, creating tmptitle – Draft posts with no content.

    I was able to process your email without any problem. What version of Postie are you using?

    Using Postie Version 1.5.3 WordPress 3.5.1

    Could it be theme related? I am and have been using Greenling for years now

    Easy to check, activate twentytwelve and see what happens.

    Also you can turn on debug logging

    Then post any errors you see.

    Hm, not the theme. Just upgraded to 1.5.4 hoping it would make a difference, but no luck.

    Will try the debug log when I have a chance

    Time is my problem now as well as the posting.

    Is there a way I can just get somebody to have a look at this and fix it for me to work again?

    Send me an email @ and we’ll work something out.

    I’m still getting the same thing. I had gone back to a previous version, then you answered that it was working. Nope.
    Prior to January, I was getting good posts. Now all I get is “TmpTitle” blank posts when postie encounters an attachment.

    Please do a debug run of Postie. There will be an error message somewhere in the log. That is the only way you can get a “tmp-title” post.
