Works great! You can see some results here: http://www.lonelylion.com/ and http://radio.weblogs.com/0101292/ Thanks again, I'll let you know if I run into anything weird. The only thing I've noticed is, if you don't use Dave's tool, your tool won't upstream, and it doesn't remove posts that you try to delete. Otherwise, really great.
There you go... One happy camper...Strange that you need Dave's version of the tool as well. I haven't had it installed for a few days now. Shouldn't need it... Anybody else tried it? He's posting to a blogger site...
Hi Steve...it looks like that link is bad. It's just a file that says
The link's good, just that I've been messing with something else... All day, and yesterday, and haven't blogged or updated this tool, till just now... Me thinks I've bust something :-) Looks like I've been upstreaming 1k files containing the word just the true -- better fix that. My tools working fine though, writing out files from a FileMaker database, then automatically, when upstreaming happens, it renders out two files, one big one small, each whacked through some graphics templates, the small is ftp'd the larger sent to the printer spool. Takes about a minute for each letter (printing extra, but now I've got a faster Epsom photo quality full bleed A4 printer, that's about a minute too).
Anyway if you just tried downloading it and found the same thing "true" that's my explanation. Get it from the same link again now, it's a full 44k this time.
So if anyone else has just been here, and had the same problem, mind it's only been an hour and fifteen minutes, real live events here.
There's afew more things I'd like to get around to, like templates, and callbacks to as I explain below .
I'm a little concerned about deleting posts to vanila Manila sites. Seems to work fine with news item Manila, and I haven't testede it with blogger API friendly clones. But just uses standard blogger API so there shouldn't be a problem.
I've been following your updated manila bridge tool that you're writing. I'm interested in doing something similar with the blogger API. Will your tool be able to publish to multiple blogger-api enabled sites as well as multiple Manila sites?
Yes, vanila Manila, news item Manila or any other blogger API friendly. Though not tested with the 'others' (blogger et al).
I'm new to the Userland scripting world, but if there's anything I can do to help (even documentation), I'd be happy to do it.
I suppose some testing would be in order, I suppose they only way to get that going is to release it.
Just pop it into your tools folder a minute later you'll see the link on the status panel of your local home page, fill in the details and you're away. Any problems, I suppose you'd better tell me.
