I’ve been using my post via email plugin to post messages on my feed for a while now.

Fairly recently I added syndication support, which is very handy for posting messages to my silo followers. However in day to day usage, I found the subject line only approach was a little clunky, and I often forgot to add the syndication tags.

So, I added support for syndication tags in the message body as well. These tags will be stripped automatically from the post text, so they won’t appear in the post.

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!
