[resolved] Request: Queueing in WordPress (10 posts)

    Hi. I just want to ask an improvement. It's queueing. There are plugins, but only one of them works. And it's a cr*p. My weblog hung very often, and my database grows from 5MB to 21 in only two weeks (that 5 MB are from 9 months).

    Please, add that function. It's the only thing I want from Tumblr.

    Thank you!!

  2. Queuing? You mean scheduling posts?

    Auto-scheduling posts

  4. For anyone else who (like me) knows sod all about Tumblr: http://tumblring.net/adding-posts-to-the-queue-in-tumblr/

    So okay. Yeah. WordPress doesn't do that with an automated function, you have to actually decide when you want the next post published via the scheduler.

    I can almost promise you that WordPress won't build this in. It seems against the grain of what they've got.

    Which plugins have you tried?

    The first is this:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/auto-schedule-posts/

    That is who make my db grows 400% :)

    The second is:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/automatic-post-scheduler/

    That actually to me, doesn't work

    Thank you Ipstenu for the help

  6. I wonder if the first one would work better if you turned off (or limited) post revisions.

    Add this to your wp-config.php file (ABOVE the 'stop editing here' line) to turn them off:
    define('WP_POST_REVISIONS', false);

    Or to limit:
    define('WP_POST_REVISIONS', 2);

    where 2 is the number of revisions you want to keep.

    Thank you so much.
    I'm going to try it now.

  8. FYI, to clean up post revisions in your database you can run this SQL command:

    delete from wp_posts where post_type = "revision";

    I don't know of any other way to do it.

    Ohhh. Awesome ipstenu. Now my db is only 3.7 MB. I don't know how to say THANK YOU.

    I tried disabling post revisions, and my database stop growing (in a bad way), but the plugin is so unstable that is impossible to keep it in a public blog.

    I've discovered what was wrong in the second plugin:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/automatic-post-scheduler/

    And there is somethings to fix, but for now is working!. This only changes the publishing date on new/edited posts. To make it work i had to has something waiting to be published.

    Request no longer needed.
    Thank you Ipstenu!!

    If you're still looking for an answer, try this. It works pretty well.
