Tweet new blog postings from wordpress

June 20, 2011

If you have a wordpress installation in you own webspace, you may want to automatically publish your blog posting on twitter. You can do this with the Twitter Tools for WordPress.

Twitter Tools is a plugin that creates a complete integration between your WordPress blog and your Twitter account.

Notes about the installation and the configuration can be found on the plugin homepage.

Something which is not mentioned: You have to have the php curl library installed to use the plugin. The library was easily installed on my debian root server.

aptitude install php5-curl

Use blogilo with wordpress

June 3, 2011

Blogilo is a Free/Open Source Blogging client, focused on simplicity and usability.

It is a KDE program, which allows you to create a blog posting offline and submit it to your blog. Using a normal client instead of a browser can be more convenient.

I’m using wordpress with a handfull of a blogs and discovered a problem with blogilo: It only allows me to submit postings to my primary wordpress blog. For everyone who has the same problem, there is an easy solution

BTW, To get out of this problem, You can set http://wordpress.com as your blog url and try! It will fetch all of your blogs, and you can select which one you want!
