Job Description

Hello,

I need someone to write a quick plugin patch for a problem I am having with the Yoast SEO Video XML Sitemap Premium Plugin. The Yoast Video SEO plugin is an excellent plugin that automatically detects video URL's in a post with they are "published". It them adds the correct video thumb and video information to the sitemap so that it can be added to Google Webmaster Tools, etc.

Problem:

The Yoast DEO Video XML sitemap is not properly updated on my Auto Style Blogs" when I use a specific Auto-Update plugin. This plugin is important to my operation, so I do not want to get rid of it. After talking to Yoast, I discovered that this happens because the auto-post plugin bypasses the wordpress "save post" function. Yoast Video XML sitemap needs the "save post" function to be activated after every post (automated or otherwise) in order to add the video to the video xml sitemap.

This is a fairly easy problem that can be solved a couple of ways, and that is what I am hiring you to do.

I need you to:

1) Create a plugin patch that hits "save post" in the data base each time an autopost is published live.

2) or create an external Cron URL that allows me to do this using external cron services>

Thank you!

- Russell
