external-group-blogs Plugin update-bug?

  • I think Andys Plugin is just great!

    I experience the following behavier: The external Blogs only get updated, when someone actually clicks on the “blog feeds” link in the groups. Only then the activity stream gets updated. I guess that’s not the idea, because the activity should draw people to the group/blog – not the other way around.

    Is that just with me or do other have the same problem? Is there fix (update?)

  • anyone having the same issue?



    i experience the same issue… but i also read this on line 19 of the php file

    wp_schedule_event( time(), ‘twicedaily’, ‘bp_groupblogs_update_all_feeds’ );

    I suppose this means “refresh the output every 12 hours”.

    Perhaps try to load a thread that is (surely) hourly updated to view if something changes in your plugin output ? :-)

    Thanks for the hint. I am trying it with a very much updated feed already and it does not refresh every 12 hours… Only when I go manually to the group (or somebody else), then it fetches the feed and makes the activity entries…

    Any more ideas…?

    Andy, since your on the move in the forums :-) – do you know what could be the reason for that (your plugin)?

    The scheduling doesn’t seem to work properly, it should fetch twice a day. I don’t have time to look into this right now, but anyone interested in debugging?



    Just a note that I’ve experienced the same issue — was meaning to post about it myself.




    Looking at the codex, it appears you’re missing an add_action.

    Change the first five lines of your plugin to:

    /* Schedule an event that will update all external blog feeds twice daily. */
    function bp_groupblogs_on_activation() {
    wp_schedule_event( time(), 'twicedaily', 'bp_groupblogs_action' );
    register_activation_hook( __FILE__, 'bp_groupblogs_on_activation' );

    This is untested, not sure if it will work.
