Just a quick post to bring you an update on the email posting support for Idno.

The email posting plugin is a handy plugin that allows you to make posts to your Idno site via email. Unfortunately, since the way POSSE syndication buttons worked was changed a little while ago, it hasn’t been possible to post out to your silo followers in twitter/facebook/etc.

No longer! Now, you are able to specify a syndication destination by putting one or more pipe tags in the email subject line (these will be removed from the post). So, for example to post to twitter, you’d use the “|” (pipe) character before the service, and add a |twitter to the subject line.

Have fun!

  1. @mapkyca That’s awesome! I was considering a similar thing but was thinking about using “+” syntax, so I’d add “+twitter +facebook” to the note text.

  2. Thanks! Yes, I went for pipe in the subject since I didn’t use the character all that often! Will definitely add functionality for grabbing at the end of the post as well, since in usage I found I kept forgetting about adding tags in the subject!
