  • RSS feeds not updating

    am I missing a setting somewhere? I set the delay and it doesn't update unless I click on the button... shouldn't this happen automatically?

    It will only happen automatically if your Scheduled Tasks are being triggered by traffic to your site and the $cronimage variable is present in your footer template.

      Hmm well this is a newer site and there isn't traffic all the time... is there a way to trigger this from cron? maybe with wget hitting a certain page? what page/link would be best to trigger an update?

        no comments on this? I'm trying to figure out how to get the RSS feeds to update all the time no matter the traffic

          I think I saw a modification over on that made the Scheduled Tasks run as real cron jobs. So, install that mod and then I think you can set your RSS Poster Bot up as a cron job.
