Looking for a plugin to share your blog posts automatically to your social media accounts. Great, because today we are going to share a WordPress plugin (Revive Old Posts WordPress Plugin) that not only shares old posts automatically but also share new posts as well as updated posts.
Without wasting any time, let’s start
Revive Old Posts Plugin Settings
Login to your admin dashboard, click on plugins – add new plugins – search for revive old posts.
Install and activate the plugin.
After the installation, go to revive old posts. There you can see some tabs,
- General settings
- Post format
- Custom schedule
- Sharing queue
- Sharing logs
2. Exclude Posts
4. Plugin Roadmap
Let’s start one by one,
Here you can connect your social media accounts. But in the free version, you can only connect your Facebook page and Twitter account. For other accounts, you need to purchase their premium version. In the premium version, they offer Facebook groups, Instagram, Linkedin, Tumblr, GMB, and VK.
Today we check only the freemium version, so connect your Facebook page and Twitter account for now.
Cron Job type: Local cron
You can switch to remote cron which is a beta version of revive old team. You can check if it’s working or not. In my case, both are working properly. But in case, remote cron not sharing your posts then switch back to the local cron.
Minimum Interval Between Shares: Here, you can set the minimum number of hours between every share. For example, you can set 6 hours, so now when your first post is shared, the next post will be shared right after 6 hours. (With the gap of every 6 hours the plugin shared a post)
Minimum post age: Here, you can set the minimum age of posts to be shared. For example, you can set 10, which means the posts that you recently published will be started sharing after 10 days.
Maximum post age: As same as minimum post age, you can also set the maximum post age to be shared. Default is 365 days, you can not change it in the free version. But if you are using the premium version, then let’s say you set it to 100 days, which means your posts that are older than 100 days will not be shared by this plugin.
Number of posts: It is also available in premium. Here, you can set the number of posts to share per account when a share occurs.
Share more than once: If you enable this, they can start resharing the posts when all the posts are shared and completed. For example, you have 10 posts, after sharing all the 10 posts they start sharing again.
Post types: Which post types should Revive Old Posts share? You can select custom post types but this is also available in the pro version.
Enable google analytics tracking: Enable – If checked, UTM query tags will be added to the URL of shares so that you can better track traffic from Revive Old Posts.
Enable Instant Sharing Feature (Post on Publish): Enable – This allows you to share posts immediately on publish/update.
Use True Instant Share: Enable – This option sends the post out as soon as you click the publish button, instead of relying on a Cron task.
Enable Instant Sharing By Default: Enable – Instant sharing option will be checked by default when creating new posts.
Choose Accounts Manually: Disable – This option allows you to choose which accounts you’d like to share instead of having them all checked automatically.
Share Scheduled Posts to Social Media On Publish: pro version – This allows for the sharing of posts scheduled to publish at a future date by WordPress to your active social media accounts as soon as they change from “Scheduled” to “Published”.
Enable Share Content Variations: pro version – These messages will override the Post Content option in Post Format settings. You can go to each post and add multiple share content variations.
Housekeeping: Depends on your needs – This option delete all saved settings on the deletion of the Revive Old Posts plugin?
Here you can set the format of the posts shared for each account you connect.
This setting totally depends on your needs. Post title, maximum characters, additional text, include a link, custom field, taxonomies, URL shortener, hashtags, maximum hashtags length, randomize hashtags, share as image post, campaign medium, campaign name, etc.
If you are confused about anything in this setting, then ask me in the comments section.
Each account can have its own options for sharing, on the left you can see the current selected account and network, below are the options for the account. Don’t forget to save after each change and remember, you can always reset an account to the network defaults.
This option is available in the pro version. In the free version, the posts are shared after every interval of X hours that you selected. But here you can set the custom interval of sharing for each account.
For example, for the Facebook account, you can set 6 hours and for the Twitter account, you can set 8 hours interval. Now the posts are shared after every 6 hours to your Facebook account and after every 8 hours to your Twitter account.
At this tab, You can choose to edit any of the posts, skip the sharing or block a specific one from sharing in the future.
This is also a pro version.
Here, you can check your sharing logs. Like, which post is shared to which account at what date and time. You can also clear logs whenever not needed.
After all these settings, click on start sharing and the posts are started sharing by the revive old posts plugin.
At exclude posts, you can manually select the posts that you don’t want to share to your social media accounts. It’s simple, just hover over to the post and click exclude.
Revive network is the premium add-on plugin. Revive Network allows you to share content from multiple RSS or Atom feeds from any website on the web to your connected social media accounts. An active Revive Old Posts Pro subscription is required to download and use Revive Network.
Leave this if you don’t know what you are doing.
