Support » Fixing WordPress » Problems posting by email

  • Ok, so I’ev been trying to post by email, and although the posts are showing up on my pages, tehre are a few problems.
    The first is that there seems to be something wrong with selecting a category, where it says “Filed Under: Category”
    I get
    “Filed Under: Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/leavers0/public_html/bensblog/wp-includes/template-functions.php on line 1368”
    Also, the post seems to have a large margin on teh left, teh text does not extend teh entire way to the edge of the screen, but seems to stop about half way accross.
    You can see my test post at
    http://bensblog.leavers03.ashst.com
    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Thanks. Although the link didn’t work for me, I went to the latest CVS by other means and took the extra bit in wp-mail.php that inserts the appropriate row into the post2cat table, which I assumed was the problem, and put it into my own wp-mail.php. It seems to have done the trick anyhow. We’ll see how it performs with extensive testing!

    I also went to the latest CVS by other means and took the extra bit in wp-mail.php that inserts the appropriate row into the post2cat table (the chunk down at the bottom if anyone is using a file comparitor (like WinMerge) of the old wp-mail with the new CVS wp-mail.
    Worked like a charm.

    I made a thread for this by itself, but got no responses. So I’m hoping I can get an answer here:
    The instructions for posting by email aren’t clear to me. I’ve set up a certain address for posting from and I set that up in the WP config, the question is what email address do I send to? I sent an email post to [that same address], and then ran the wp-mail.php. I saw the content of the email there, however there is no new post on my blog. What did I do wrong?
    Also, why do the instructions say HTML email is not supported? I’d like to use this system for a friend who formats a newsletter in Outlook (HTML)… It would be much easier to send that directly than have to log in and re-format the newsletter in the WP interface.
