Getting started with WP Postly
Since WP does not have a system permission to trigger system cronjobs at scheduled times, the WP internal crons created by WP Postly are triggered by visitors and admins when they visit the site.
We are developing a WP native automatic pinging solution to triger our WP Postly customers sites, which will be released by the next plugin release. Until then please register your site to one of the free cronjob and pinging servicer provider, such as this online tool.
Set url to trigger to YOUR_SITE_URL/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php to every 5-10 minutes every day, every hour.
First you need to setup WP Postly by clicking Settings in the menu.
Add credentials to services:
- Big Content Search: email and API key
- Big Media Scraper: email and API key
- Spin Rewriter: email and API key
