I am attempting to make posts to my WordPress blog site via email. I have followed (with some difficulty.. I am pretty much a beginner at this) the first three steps at http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_to_your_blog_using_email.
To finalize the post I am am using the first option: "manual browser activation" e.g.....
"Go to the following link http://example.com/installdir/wp-mail.php immediately after you send an e-mail to your new e-mail account. (Note: You must do this every time you send a new post.) "
I have substituted the appropriate addresses for my site.
When I click that url it seems to work and I get the following message (for some test posts):
"Author is firstname.lastname@example.org
Posted title: testing from an email sent via CU
Mission complete. Message 1 deleted.
Author is email@example.com
Posted title: test via gmail
Mission complete. Message 2 deleted."
==> HOWEVER, these posts do not ever show up on my blog!
What am I doing wrong?
