Syndicate Out 0.3.2

Post length: 119 words, about 0 and a half minutes.

Syndicate Out 0.3.2 is now available for download from the WordPress plugin directory.

This version addresses two bugs brought up by users (thanks go to randy, Adam, and Paul Bain) regarding the admin panel (sometimes) not apearing in the settings menu, and a broken include in the 0.3.1 release.  It’s also been tested against WP version 2.8.3.

The plugin file name has changed with this version, so users might find the plugin gets de-activated by WP’s plugin manager when it’s updated.  You simply need to re-activate the plugin to get it up running again.

As always, thanks for everyone’s feedback and support and please don’t hesitate to get in contact if you find any issues or have any suggestions on this release.

Thanks. I’ve not had much time to work on the multi-blog syndication recently, although following all the requests it’s top of my list!

Great plugin, thanks for your work! It would be really useful to be able to syndicate to more than one other blog.

Thanks for the comment Chris. I certainly want to expand the plugin to be able to post to more than one blog so I’ll look into that with the next version.

Can support multiple blog?

At this stage no, but it’s certainly something I’d like to add. I’ll put it on the todo list. All being well I’ll release a new version of the plugin soon.

Really neat plugin otherwise

Hey, I am using your plugin to cross post to my friend’s blog. I am an author on his blog. I set everything up on the Syndicate Out settings…his url, my name and password.

I published a post on the category that is supposed to be syndicated, but nothing has shown up. How long should it take to syndicate?

Is there another step I am missing?

Do you have an ETA on when the next version will be out and also if it will include the ability to mirror post updates?

One of the issues we have right now is that if I update an existing post and assign it my specific category that I’m watching, it won’t pick up that the post doesn’t exist on the other blog and thus won’t post it.

Other than that thanks for the great work!! I look forward to the next update.

@martin: Hopefully I’ll finally get chance to work on the plugin in the next few days as things cool down towards Christmas!

I’m certainly going to implement posting to multiple blogs as a lot of people have been asking for that, but the edit thing irriates me too, so I’ll try and address that at the same time!

Thanks Jonathon!

When implementing this for one of my clients I noticed that the post when added to the receiving blog wasn’t getting tagged with the category from the source blog. And in our case we needed the post to be assigned the same category on both blogs. So I added the following line just after line 111 in the syndicate-out.php file.

$remotePost[‘categories’] = array(get_cat_name(get_option( ‘so_category’ )));

This simply sets the category on the remote host to match the category that syndicate out is monitoring. If I was implementing this properly I would probably have a setting to enable/disable this feature.

I’m looking forward to the next release.

Great idea. I’ll drop that feature into the next release as well 🙂

Hi Jonathon, this is a wonderful plugin and I’m looking forward to using it, but unfortunately I’m getting this error in the settings page for Syndicate Out:
Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /var/www/wp-content/plugins/syndicate-out/so-options.php on line 48

I’m pretty confident that I can go in and fix it myself but I thought you might want to know that it’s doing that out of the box; I will post my fix if I get it working.

The real reason I’m posting is a feature request. I was wondering, are there any plans to associate “blog groups” with tags, such that you could post to one group of blogs with one tag and another group by tagging an article differently? This would, in my opinion, make it the next killer syndication plugin. Thanks!

Thanks for the bug report. You should only get that error the first time you install and configure the plugin. I’ve fixed that in the trunk and will roll out the fix to the next version.

When I first started thinking about the plugin I considered using tags to do the syndication but decided on categories as this covered our needs at the time. I can see how adding tag functionality would make things more flexible, and I’ll certainly look into it. I also like the idea of blog groups and I’ll think about how that could be implemented for future releases, but can’t make any promises on timescale for that!
