Yep you read that title right, Automated Editor has now sold out all of its limited offer copies. You can still grab a $35 copy at its secondary price, still a bargain on e-junkie.
This is again a limited offer as we want to keep the plugin true to its users, so get it while its hot people!

If you are yet to pick up your copy of Automated Editor you can now go over to WPPlugins and get it there (Automated Editor on WPPlugins.com.) If you haven’t checked out WPPlugins.com yet its probably worth heading over there, the guys behind incsub have set it up and its a decent place to find the real professional plugins.
The Automated Editor wordpress plugin (Ultra Pro) is now solely available through WPPlugins (you can still get the free version here at wordpress.org, but it is quite limited compared to the ultra pro one!)

The convenience of having more than one schedule is one of the most useful things about the ultra-pro version of Automated editor, it allows you to have some rules running on some specific targets, some of the time. With the latest version you not only have the capacity to have many, many schedules, you can also easily pause and start them all at any point!
That’s right from the latest release (first public release) 1.3 you can now pause schedules individually or completely. Not sure if a schedule is doing what it should be? Hit the pause button next to it while you work it out. While paused (as long as it hasn’t already been fired a millisecond earlier) your schedule will remain dormant, even if it should be fired (hourly trigger or daily etc.)
As we improve scheduling this may no doubt improve more, but for now its been quite useful a feature to us!
If your on the free version then maybe its time to think about getting ultra pro to fully utilise this powerful addition, or if your one of our old friends using a beta version of the plugin let us know/get the new version!

If you haven’t already checked out our future features page why not head over there now? It’s an ongoing list of the things we have not yet added to Automated Editor but would like to in the future. Voted on by the community of users, future features will hopefully keep us moving in a way that keeps everyone happy. Here’s a little exploration into our favourite possible developments.
Wouldn’t it be nice to know when one of your contributors posts a post with a specific string? Or perhaps how many times a string has been switched out for an affiliate link or seo friendly link on a specific blog? How about on some of the more automatic blogs, want to know the success rate of your newest set of rules, direct to your inbox? There’s quite a few ways we can think of combining email notifications/pushing into Automated Editor, it would be invaluable to mix email with the automation setup. This ones high on our list!
Wordpress does a lot of this for you, at least in terms of versioning. Automated Editor however is a little more brutal, or has to be to circumnavigate a few things. This is both good and bad (read the disclaimer if you haven’t already!) but sometimes it would be nice to be able to offer just a little more reassurance to our users. If we add this feature it will be the belt and braces to the plugin, backing up posts before changes, perhaps even integrated with email notifications as above and a step through system for seeing your changes in action (or reverting back to old versions of posts.) Perhaps backups could even be integrated into rules as actions. Perhaps.

Just starting out using automated editor? want a bit of inspiration for your first rule? Well check out our video on making your first rule for the plugin or read some of the stuff we have used it for over the past few versions:
- Auto-tag stuff with pre-defined tags
- Remove certain strings one of our authors couldn’t stop adding
- Replace common words with Search engine friendly links, helping us build a nicely linking system
- Replace keywords (we use [ebay] or [amazon]) with affiliate links
- Automatically append old posts with a “did you find this useful?” sort of tail sale
- Fix a typo we had been making for 4 years without realising!
- Subscribe to our mailing list for many many more uses (box on the right!)

For those of you who have been using the plugin in anger this won’t come as a surprise but Automated Editor will soon see public release, the powerful plugin which does all the cut/place/move/slice/append sort of editing for you will be launched in the coming weeks, full to the brim with stable completeness and rounded fixes.
We will be releasing two versions of the wordpress plugin, first a “lite” free version which max’s out at 1 schedule, 3 rules and has a few ads (still all the flexible power of Automated Editor and completely FREE) and an “Ultra Pro” version which will be totally unlimited, supported and ad-free.
If you have any interest in the wordpress plugin, in terms of review copies, please do comment here and we will send you a copy, we are always looking for ways to sure up the Automated Editor ship!…
