Wow!  Awesome new features!  Quick question though.  Tried to set my auto posting feature to more than one category and category selection still only shows one category being selected.  When I click a second category the first one does not stay highlighted, only the new one.  How do we get 2 or 3 categories to show up?  Tried on existing blogs and even deleted a blog totally and set it up again from scratch and same problem.  Any one have a solution?

Thanks

I have several blogs using the automatic posting feature.  Is there anyway to go back and add the new features to these blogs or do I have to start with new ones only?

Yes, just click the Edit link in your blog posting jobs list and check the boxes.

Hold down the CTRL key while clicking the categories.

Hi

I have a question on one of the new features--automatically adding pictures from Flickr to each article. It's uploading images that don't match with the topic! Since you added this feature and we selected it, we've got 7 articles out of 9 that have images that have nothing to do with the topic of the article.

You said the new feature, "A list of Flickr images related to the category is pulled and one of the images is randomly added to the blog post."

We chose Article Builder to write articles on the topics of article marketing and internet marketing, and to put these articles in the category Internet Marketing on our blog, yet the Flickr images included are pictures of deer, guys playing chess and tomatoes to name a few of the ones that have nothing to do with the category of Internet Marketing.

We are with Empower Network and the default category for posting the articles is Empower Network but we had created an Internet Marketing category on our blog and we selected that inside Article Builder but the articles are not posted there. Article Builder is posting the articles in the Empower Network category. We don't want these articles posted here.

Is this a glitch? I don't like having images that have nothing to do with the topic attached to these amazing articles created from Article Builder.

What good is automatically uploaded pictures from Flickr if the images don't relate to the article?

The problem is down to Flickr.

If you go to Flickr and do a search using the term 'internet marketing' and refine the search to CC commercial use I think you will see the problem.
However, if you do the same thing using a search term like 'Eiffel Tower' you will see a different and better outcome. This is likely to be niche related, sometimes it'll be good, sometimes less so.

ok, thank you. I guess this new feature is only useful for a more obvious  and specific topic like your example and a topic like internet marketing is too broad so Flickr posts unrelated random pics. I unselected this feature so my blog posts don't look odd with a great article with a picture that doesn't make sense.

Thassit. I did not even check the 'EIffel Tower' search term, but I know that Flickr is of little help when it comes to finding images on 'internet marketing' been there, done that.
