Why aren’t my feeds being published?

There are a few reasons your posts might not be publishing.

RSS Graffiti does not check your feed immediately after setting up a new feed source. The frequency with which we check your feed depends on the level of system traffic.

Are there new posts eligible for publishing? RSS Graffiti will not go back and publish old posts unless you explicitly change the cut-off date/time in the advanced tab of the source settings window.

Make sure your feed is a valid RSS or Atom document. Each item in your feed must include an element containing a valid datestamp as well as an element containing a valid http:// URL. You can validate your feeds here.

If you still can’t figure out why your feeds are failing to publish, ask a question in our Community Support Forum.

Q & A: How To Schedule Publishing Of Multiple Posts in WordPress?

Hi folks,

I’ve been receiving some tech questions lately so I decided I’d start answering them on the blog so others can benefit as well.

Our next question is from Nadine in Houston, TX:

Question:

How do I schedule multiple posts in WordPress.com?  For instance, let’s say I want to make a queue or stack of posts, and the set up a rule that automatically publishes each post at certain intervals.  So, if I write 10 posts before going on vacation, I can set it up so that the next  one in the queue will publish itself to my blog every 3 days, or on some similar schedule.  I know you can schedule each post individually in WordPress.com by manually configuring the date on each post, but I’m looking for some automation to save time and do stuff in bulk.

Answer:

Great question Nadine.  Unfortunately, in WordPress.com you are only able to schedule posts one at a time.  On the other hand, if you self-host a WordPress.org-based blog then you have some more options.  One plugin that has high ratings is Editorial Calendar.  This gives you a calendar schedule view, you can schedule for multiple authors, drag and drop between days.  Overall, this one really gives you a lot of control options.  If you are hosting your own site, I’d say give it a try.
