  • Many thanks, Francis, for investigating this and your update. I really appreciate your help. It’s useful to know the different options re the SG Optimiser plugin and good to know there’s a work-around for continuing to post. Thanks to Clare and Darla for your comments. It’s always useful to know that others have had the same issue.

  • Hi

    When I click on the VS menu in my WP dashboard, it just takes me to my posts in WP. I can see the 5 options in the VS dropdown menu – Create, Owner Details, Property Details, Comment, Release Notes. I can click on all of them EXCEPT the ‘create’ option. I guess I could still post but just not via the Soup which is what I want to do. Any ideas…[Read more]

  • Hi

    This seems to be fixed now. Thank you! I am still getting odd dates on the right hand list of posts but can live with that. I figured out that a post was being published with a published date of the previous post but only if I used the VS plugin. I tried posting not using the plugin and the corrected published date appeared. I’ve just posted…[Read more]

  • Hi Alan

    I contacted Siteground. They added a line to htaccess and suggested I used the SG Optimiser plugin so I could purge the cache. It did seem a little better but my site generally feels a bit sluggish. I’ll try and do some cleaning up and will contact them if I have more problems. Changing browser also helped.

    Thanks for the suggestion to…[Read more]

  • Hi Alan

    I’m still experiencing this problem. I posted on the 24th about Coutances and on my website it shows a published date of 8 August. On the right hand column entitled ‘Your recent posts’ it showed as 2 weeks ago. I then published about some guest recommendations on the 25th, published date showed at the 24th and the right hand column showed…[Read more]

  • Hi Alan and Francis

    Yesterday I wrote a post about Villedieu town hall. However, I didn’t post it as I couldn’t upload my images in the media library. I kept getting an HTTP error which has happened previously. I’ve tried to clear up my media library but I had over 600 images as I have a lot of posts. I tested deleting some pics and checked that…[Read more]

  • Hi

    I’ve noticed an error in the dates of posts when I use the plugin. I’ve checked my WordPress settings and the date there is correctly set. I posted yesterday (8th) about the Coutances maze and saw it on the VS Facebook page. However, when I go into the soup it shows as having been posted on the 5th. Furthermore, in my preview of posts it says…[Read more]

  • Hi. I tried Chrome and was able to go through the sequence in my listing to check everything was OK. However, there still seems to be an issue with the France magazine page and neither my property nor my posts are appearing on this page of The Soup. I got a map of France the first time I looked and then a map of Maine (although I had just been…[Read more]

  • Hi, I’ve tried to update my listing as per the email last week. In my profile, I made a change to my website address (adding https rather than http) but it didn’t seem to want to save my email as it was highlighted in yellow and said the email belonged to another user. I moved onto my property listing and went through the tabs: Description,…[Read more]

  • There were some glitches yesterday on Facebook so perhaps it was down to that. I couldn’t find it despite a search. It’s back now. Facebook has also recently changed the algorithm of what we see in our FB newsfeed but you can change your settings to pages you want to see first or switch notifications on. The more you engage with a page, the more…[Read more]

  • Hi Cindy. A lot of the listing sites use ical to sync calendars. Some only export the calendar, others only import. You also need to check how frequently they sync as it’s not always immediate. My way of working is to try and link as many calendars as possible. On the listing sites where I have instant book, I manually update just to be sure. I…[Read more]

    Thanks, Alan, they have now. It took a fair bit of time and would only sync a maximum of 6 at a time. So, that’s the Normandy back catalogue loaded onto The Soup for Google to trawl through 🙂

    Hi Francis
    As a follow up to my previous post, I’ve gone back in to the plug in and have now been redirecting to the resync option. My posts are now syncing but the option keeps freezing. I started with around 240 posts to sync but it only does 2 or 3 and shows 1% completed. It sometimes does another 2 posts and goes up to 2%. Then it’s completely…[Read more]

    • Hi Chris, I think that all of your posts have synced

  • Hi Francis

    Happy New Year. My property is listed on the soup and I’ve installed the latest version of the soup. My posts aren’t syndicating though. On the Status box for the plug in only the Authorisation and  Soup Syndication options have a green tick against them (pic below).

    Does syndication happen automatically or do I need to do something…[Read more]

  • Hi Alan

    I’ve installed the plug-in and watched your videos. You briefly mentioned a paid for plug in which will post to multiple social media platforms. Can you point me in the right direction for this please? I’m loving how easy it is to post with the plug-in!

     

  • Hi Everyone. I’m Chris. In 2014 I quit my job in London, sold my house and moved to rural Normandy in France. I had bought a French property the month before I moved which has a couple of barns. One of the barns has now been converted and is a gite which sleeps 6 people. I live across the courtyard and the gite business has been up and running for…[Read more]
