Upcoming Version 4 Features: Auto-Reposting
NXS
nextscripts

Version 4 is coming out soon. One of the most important new features is a completely redone auto-reposting.


Auto-reposting in version 3 was done as on/off switch per network and separate include/exclude property per each post. It was very complicated and some reposting scenarios that were not possible or very hard to setup:


- Repeat one particular tweet each day at 9AM

– Auto-Repost only posts from specific categories or tags

– Auto-Repost only posts written by specific author.

– Auto-Repost only “Image” format posts, not “Link” or “Standard”.

– Auto-Repost some specific posts from 9AM to 11AM and some different posts from 6PM to 9PM


Version 4 will use Reposter Actions. Each Reposter Action can be configured individually and you can setup what posts should be posted to what networks and when should it happen.


V4 Reposter



Reposter Action has 4 configurable sections


1. You can Activate/Deactivate the Reposter and set ho to get your posts – One-by-one or Randomly.


V4 Reposter


2. You can choose what networks this Reposter should post to.


V4 Reposter


3. You can set how often to posts as well as what time it should start and stop.

4. You can define what posts, pages or other custom post types will be posted.

Solution for disappearing "Pro" features and "Incorrect Activation Key" error.
NXS
nextscripts

First off all we need to apologize to all the people who lost “Pro” features or got “Incorrect Activation Key” error during the last 8 hours.


Last night our server got corrupted in a bad way. What happened is when plugin checked for a version upgrade instead of “No/Here is a New Version” response server was returning a corrupted page. Plugin assumed it’s a new version – “Pro” functionality got corrupted. The same happened to the new “Pro” activation requests. Instead of “Pro” features server returned some corrupted page causing “Incorrect Activation Key” errors.


It’s all fixed now. Please re-enter your activation key and “Pro” will be back.


More then that, we made sure that this will never happened again. Please update “NextScripts: SNAP Pro Upgrade Helper” plugin to the latest version 1.3 that we just released. It should be available in your WP Admin -> Dashboards -> Updates section or you can get it from http://www.nextscripts.com/mypage

New Release: SNAP for Wordpress Version 3.3
NXS
nextscripts

SNAP for WordPress Version 3.3.0 has been released. This version adds support for Flipboard Magazines (Pro Only) and a lot of improvements.


One important improvement is rewritten Facebook API access.

When we started this project as “Facebook-Twitter-Google+ Autoposter” we took official Facebook PHP API library and used it. Two years and 21 networks after that we actually asked a question why exactly we are still using those 47kbs of code. We can do much better then that. We have enough knowledge and experience to use Facebook API directly, without some “middle man”. As a result we got much faster and more reliable Facebook autoposter engine.


Another important change is disabling Auto-Reposter if WP Cron service is not correctly configured. This should save a lot of frustration and prevent many issues.


= 3.3.0 [03/06/2014] =


* New – New network “Flipboard”. Post your links to your magazine.

* Improvement – A lot of code, error handling and interface optimizations and improvements.

* Improvement – Plugin is not using 47kb of official Facebook API for PHP anymore. Facabook autoposting is now more stable and faster.

* Improvement – Auto-Reposting functionality will be disabled if WP Cron is not configured correctly.

* Improvement – Plugin shows how many posts is included in auto-reposting on the settings page.

* Bug Fix – Many bug fixes and improvements to the “Auto-Reposting” and “Posts from Query” functionality.

* Bug Fix – Checkboxes with selected categories were not saving correctly.

* Bug Fix – Google+ – custom URL postings were incorrect.

* Bug Fix – Tumblr is now working “New Post to Social Networks”

Troubles with WP Cron and existing posts auto-reposter
NXS
nextscripts

“Existing posts auto-reposter” functionality will be disabled if WP Cron is not configured correctly.


It’s been more then three months since we released SNAP for WordPress Version 3.0 with “Existing posts auto-reposter” functionality. It was one of the most requested features and a lot of people are enjoying it. However this feature brought a lot of troubles to us. The problem is that this feature could work properly only with correctly configured (healthy) WP Cron. It turned out that a lot of people have no idea what is “WP Cron”, how does it work, and why it’s important to keep it healthy. Combination of unhealthy WP Cron and “Existing posts auto-reposter” feature could cause: no auto-repostings, no auto-postings, many duplicate postings and repostings, site crashes, 500 Internal server errors, etc.. and of course we are getting the blame for all those problems.


We don’t feel that we deserve all those bad reviews and being called “Unhelpful Support” simply because we don’t have technical capabilities to spend hours on each website debugging WP Cron. WP Cron is a part of WordPress itself and its absolutely not related to our products. Healthy WP Cron is a requirement for “Existing posts auto-reposter” functionality and SNAP for WordPress Version 3.3 will check and disable this feature if it detects that WP Cron is not configured the way it should be.


Please go to the “Help/Support” tab and click “Show Cron Test Results” to see how your WP Cron is doing.


We have a very good tutorial about correct configuration of WP Cron: WP-Cron: Scheduling Tasks in WordPress


Once the WP Cron is configured correctly, please go to the Help/Support tab again and click “Show Cron Test Results” and then click “Re-do Cron Check”.


“Existing posts auto-reposter” functionality will be reactivated after successful test.

We are really sorry, but we can’t offer troubleshooting services for WP Cron as part of our support for SNAP plugin. This is a server administration issue, so please work with your server admin or hosting provider if you need help setting it up correctly.
