The cracks may be showing

I’m not entirely sure what TwitterPost is playing at – it’s supposed to post once a week, on Sundays. I’ll have to wait and see what it does, I suppose, and try to clean up anything funky it unleashes, but please bear with me on that one as I can’t monitor the blog 24/7.

Postalicious, on the other hand, is just a fucking arsehole. I’m still trying to work out why it doesn’t want to work. Again, things may get funky, for which I apologise.

Positive shout-outs, however, to the following plugins: InstantUpgrade, for WordPress, My Link Order, WordPress Database Backup. You are all easy to install and setup, plus you work properly. Jolly good show.

  1. Postalicious now depends on another plugin for core functions, with the upswing that you no longer have to swap out one of the files from wp-includes. Have you checked the docs for the latest version?

    Indeed, I have the latest versions of SimplePie and Postalicious. The sod still won’t work!

    Oh, wait, it updated at 4pm. Which isn’t “at most once per day after 8pm”. But at least it’s an update. Presumably it posted it after I clicked the “activate hourly updates” button. I don’t *want* hourly updates, but I hoped that might prompt it to check and subsequently post when I wanted it to. *facepalm*

  4. The hourly updates thing doesn’t mean ‘post hourly’, it means ‘scan the feed hourly’; the post frequency is determined by the other settings. The reason it posted early is because it knew it hadn’t posted in the last 24 hours; in that situation, it counts the current time as being “after [time x]” and picks up on the set time the next day… provided you have new bookmarks to post since then, natch. It’s not brilliantly documented, but you get the feel for it after a few days.

    Ah, that makes sense – my original assumption was correct. Well, I’ll turn it back on and fingers crossed it’ll behave. Thanks for the advice, mate!
