Support » Plugin: Postie » postie_post_after and get_mail.php

  • Resolved maxpontello



    I noticed a problem running a postie_post_after filter when the emails are fetched via get_mail.php.

    I use Postie 1.5.16 with WP 3.6.1 to post emails from a gmail account every hour. The cron job runs a wget calling the get_mail.php program.

    The filter is meant to setup language variables for another plugin (ceceppa multilanguage).

    Anyway, when I run postie from the “Run Postie” button, the filter runs properly. The other postie_post_before filters run perfectly in both cases.

    Do you have any idea?

    That is very strange as the same code runs in both cases. Do you mind sharing the addon you’ve created? Please email


    this is my filterpostie.php

    add_filter('postie_post_after', 'add_def_lang');
    function add_def_lang($post) {
        $link = mysql_connect(':/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock', 'wordpress', '*******');
            if (!$link) {
    			die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
            mysql_select_db('wordpress', $link) or die('Could not select database.');
            $res = mysql_query('INSERT INTO wp_postmeta (post_id,meta_key,meta_value) VALUE ('.$post['ID'].',"_wplp_post_front",1)');
            $res = mysql_query('INSERT INTO wp_ceceppa_ml_posts (cml_post_lang_1,cml_post_id_1,cml_post_lang_2,cml_post_id_2) VALUE (1,'.$post['ID'].',0,0)');
            $res = mysql_query('UPDATE wp_options SET option_value=1 WHERE option_name="cml_page_lang_'.$post['ID'].'"');
        return $post;

    the multilanguage plugin is

    Thank you


    I found that the problem was related to the other plugin.
    Today I got an update from the developer, with a dedicated function that works with both Postie debug and get_mail.php.

    function add_def_lang($post) {
     if(function_exists('cml_set_language_of_post')) {
                    $lang = 1;
                    cml_set_language_of_post( $post['ID'], $lang );
                    EchoInfo('Post ID: '.$post['ID'].' Language set to: '.$lang);
        return $post;
