WordPress allows posting via email, but must be told to check for emails. This is achieved by calling wp-mail.php using either a cron job, or by including a hidden iframe in your blog footer.
This plugin adds the iframe to the blog footer without editing the theme – updating your theme won’t break your ability to email in posts to WordPress.
- Upload email-post-activation.php to your WordPress plugins folder.
- Activate the plugin via the WordPress Plugins page.
- I don’t see anything in my blog. Where is the iframe?
The iframe used to call the wp-mail.php file is hidden. Its width and height have been set to 0. If you want to check that the plugin has loaded correctly:
- Right click in your browser window.
- Click View Source from the pop-up menu.
- Scroll to the bottom of the page and look for a line that looks something like this:
<iframe src=”http://www.myblog.com/myblog/wp-mail.php” name=”mailiframe” width=”0″ height=”0″ frameborder=”0″ scrolling=”no” title=””>
- I activated the plugin, and I still don’t see anything. Are you sure this works?
Yes, I’m sure it works 🙂
If you’re using caching on your site, such as WP Super Cache, then you may have to clear the cache before you can see the code.
