Apparently there has been some chatter on Identi.ca based on my test posts charting my progress hacking on Blue Fur’s WordIdentica to address an issue and an enhancement. This has led to the first case of someone else trying to use it. Unfortunately, what works for me is not working for my first user. I have trouble shot the first issue, but on that foreign WordPress, the links are not getting sent to his Identi.ca timeline.
I am now in the processing of hoovering my simple hacks into a proper project under source control. I want to add some additional code to help avoid the PHP version problem we first encountered and add some logging to help diagnose the latter problem.
Stay tuned, I will also be setting up a permanent page, either here or at Bit Bucket Labs, on which the re-tooled plugin will live. Right now, I am thinking of renaming my fork Laconica Tools unless someone else has a better suggestion. (Laconica because part of my goals now is to make it work for any install of the Laconica server, not just Identi.ca.)
