Scheduler doesn't work

Hi,

I've set up SCM to pick up keywords from a file then create articles. I set up scheduler to do this every hour. SCM starts doing the job but then in the middle of creating the articles just quits and doesn't turn back on. I have to manually turning it on again but it quits again when running the project.

I have used the same article settings to create articles successfully without the scheduler except to pick the keywords up from a file. So I guess my article spinning/mixing settings aren't the problem but rather the keyword pick up method.

Can you run it and reproduce same error then copy the application log for me?

Or do you mean the app crashes entirely and you have to restart it?

Yes, it crashes entirely even with low article settings. It just quits. I thought it may be because I set high paragraph variation and article output but with a low number as 3 it crashes too.

This is a snippet of the application log before quitting:

Can I get you to update to the beta.

Seocontentmachine.com/next.

The keyword file is written as article-keyword.txt in the data folder when a task is created.

Next runs much more stable than classic scm.

Thanks, I'll have a look and report back.

Also I'd like to ask for a feature that would be useful for some projects. When scraping from a keyword file it would be handy if SCM could delete the keywords that used to build articles from. I'm aware that not all article building projects would benefit from such features but at some it could be pretty useful to have this option.

This feature you want exists already in a modified form as 'keyword partial' file feature.

When scm next runs in creates partial file with all unprocessed keywords then deletes keywords from that file as it runs. If there is an error it stops and resumes if the partial file is still there.

You can read that partial file to figure out what keywords are still waiting to be done. If the file is deleted it means all keywords was processed.

Hi,

I can't see any option to load keywords from file in SCM-next. I've checked the youtube video and I can see a "load keywords" checkbox on the Artcle creator tab but that's not visible on the Create Article tab.

About deleting the entries of the keyword file. However it's useful to know which keywords are done or not the reason I would need deleting entries from the keyword file is related to hands off settings.

I'd like to set up SCM to create articles on a schedule on a VPS. I would like to feed SCM with keywords in a file that is in a shared dropbox folder. If SCM could delete the processed keywords from the file I only need to add new keywords and not worry about unprocessed ones.

There is no load keywords from text as NEXT does this automatically in the background.

What you do is find the data folder, then create 'article-keywords.txt.partial' file with the keywords you want processed.

NEXT will remove each keyword it succesfully processes from that list.

If the list is empty or deleted it will restart but this time will read the original 'article-keywords.txt' file. Which if you leave empty ie don't enter keywords in the box, it will run but nothing will happen.

Let me know if this doesn't make sense. I might have to do a quick youtube video for you, as its easier to explain it if I show it in real time.

FYI that video is slightly out of date, everything is loaded via a file anyway, that textbox writes to keyword file in the project data folder.

Hi,

Yes, I've got it. However the way it works now kills the possibility to place a keyword file into dropbox and make scm read keywords from there. Essentially killing the option to remotely updating the keyword file which is a very useful feature of SCM.

May I suggest you use pcloud drive instead? It allows you to select your own folder anywhere on the drive to sync text files with. While dropbox forces everything into one folder.

Pcloud is free as well and for text files more than enough data.

This may work. I'll give it a try. Is this option alive in SCM or only in SCM/next. Actually what is scm/next? Is it a new software or just a testing platform?

I am thinking of moving all data files into the scm next install folder, this would be useful for you as you can keep using Dropbox. Ill make the next version change the data folder for you.

NEXT is replacing scm classic. It's very stable and doesn't crash like. Net version. Please move onto next, if there is missing feature let me know what you need to complete the transition.

If the option to select custom keyword files is not available as it were in SCM then this would be the next best thing I guess.

When this next version is coming out? I've just updated to 2020.0108.1210 and I can't see any data folder in the installation directory. Should it be there?

I haven't dived into SCM-next fully in yet but there are a couple of minor things that would be nice to have.

-If you could add a couple of presets to the cron that would be useful as it were in SCM.

-Where can I add proxies to scm-next?

-How can I select other search engines when Creating Articles? In scm there were a list of sites and search engines to select from. I couldn't find that in next.

-When I add keywords to SCM keywords field SCM uses all the keywords to search articles and mashes the content together. SCM next seems like going through all the keywords one by one and creating articles with each keyword individually. Both have their uses but how can set scm-next to use various keywords to create the articles?

Re: CRON, there is a link to the right for cron builder, you can use that to get some defaults.

Proxies are coming!

You can use the pipe symbol. Eg

dog|doggy|dogs|dog review

This will use all those keywords to mash in the article.

Yes, I found that link for creating crons but to be honest I was struggling to understand how it worked. I figured it out but it took me a couple of minutes.
