I’ve been a fan of RSS Bandit for a while, one reason being their ability to consume plugins created to the iBlog specification. Basically, a plugin adds contextual actions when you right-click a blog post in RSS Bandit. I’m currently using a wBloggar plugin that can send any post I’m reading to a new entry, and include the standard html linking you’d expect: excerpt, blockquote, source.
While upgrading to the latest release of RSS Bandit, I was reading the forums and found a new plugin, this time to send whatever blog item you are seeing to del.icio.us. But I don’t use del.icio.us, right? So? I installed the plugin and surprise, the target URL is not hard-coded. So I simply changed it to where my Scuttle links reside and bingo, I’m done.
Simply change the URL to end with
/api/posts_add (notice the underscore) instead of
/api/posts/add. I love extending my programs vs. adding new ones. It’s simpler and fits better in my everyday workflow.
