Problem getting auto post setup...
« on: December 21, 2012, 12:33:40 PM »
I bought Article Builder and tried to add my Empower Network blog to it's auto blog posting feature. It wouldn't let me, so I contacted Article Builders tech support and they said that you can't use the "admin" user of the blog, you have to add a new user in the WordPress blog, then use that new user name and password in AB to set up the auto post. I tried that, but when you click on ADD NEW USER in the EN blog, it automatically converts to add EXISTING user. Nothing would work, so I went to the blog that the public sees and made a new account so I could post a comment, then tried to add that new account as an existing user. That didn't work either. I've been back and forth with AB's technical support person many times and they're not understanding my issue.

Anyone know how to get Article Builder to work with a Empower Network blog to do the auto post?  Thanks in advance!

Hmm.. I have a lot of sites where Admin is accepting articles (I trust the AB staff to not hijack my sites. ;) ) so maybe there is some miscommunication there.

Empower netwrok sites are a mutisite Wordpress setup - is posting from XML-RPC enabled in the site (does the site have remote posting enabled)? If it does then I can't see why you'd have a problem.

To be honest it ain't AB's technical support that you need. You need to talk to the EM support system about how they handle additional users on their system.

In general though, if you are building a business you probably want to be building on your own turf, not on someone else's - any promotion work you do is promoting somebody else's business and probably more than yours.

I was trying to set up Empower Network for auto-blogging today, and the Remote Publishing option under Settings/Writings is missing. Found the following info in the Knowledgebase:

Missed Schedule Post & 3rd Party Article Software Issues?
Posted by Stacy Davis on 02 August 2012 02:09 AM
We apologize to have to say that the scheduling blog posts feature is disabled on the Empower Network blog due to conflicting coding for other added features of the site.

Our programmers are working to create a solution within the custom coding of the site however are not able to give a projected date of when the solution will be completed due to the complexity of the coding fix required on a blogging system the size of the Empower Network site.

This will unfortunately affect the use of 3rd party software for posting articles to the Empower Network blog and not allow them access to the site for publishing posts remotely.

If you have a post that has “missed schedule” and you are now unable to publish the post immediately you will need to “copy” the entire HTML code of your blog post, create a new post and publish it as a new post and delete the post that states “missed schedule”.

Thanks for the info.

For anyone wanting to use Empower Network as a platform for your own sites it is worth noting the above info.

Empower is not a blogging platfrom, it is a marketing platform with the object of promoting the Empower Network - a very different beast. Although the basic structure looks like WordPress it is customised to suit the needs of the man at the top of the pyramid and limitations to your own activities may not become evident until too late.
