Delicious Blog Rescue Tool 0.9.2
A Firefox 3 extension by murklins
Aug 8, 2008: Newer version! Fixes a problem with the HTTP request Content-Type header.
Aug 6, 2008: New version! Deals with the immediate problems related to the Delicious 2.0 release, but no interface changes have been made yet to bring it more in line with the revamped Delicious Blog Posting settings page.
If you use the del.icio.us daily blog post feature, you may have noticed that sometimes it doesn't work. Maybe your blog server was down at the crucial time, maybe del.icio.us was down. Whatever the cause, a day's worth of your del.icio.us links never made it to your blog. What to do?
Enter the Delicious Blog Rescue Tool (or Super-d, as I affectionately call it).
New Intructions: Open it from the Firefox Tools menu and fill in your del.icio.us account name and password as well as the date of the missing blog post. Then go to your del.icio.us settings and navigate to the Blog Posting settings page. Copy over your job's settings into the Delicious Blog Rescue Tool window.
- Time: Enter the time, in GMT, when the post should have been made. Usually, you can use the Next run at time and round it up to the closest hour, then convert it to GMT time and pick that time from the drop down box. For example, if the next run is scheduled for [08/06/08 09:48:18 AM -0700] then you round up to 10 and then add 7 hours to get 17 GMT.
- Blog Account: The login name of the blog you would like the Delicious Blog Rescue Tool to post to.
- Blog Password: The password of the blog you would like the Delicious Blog Rescue Tool to post to.
- XML-RPC URL: Whatever is listed in the out_url setting on the Delicious Blog Posting page.
- Blog ID: Whatever is listed in the out_blog_id setting on the Delicious Blog Posting page.
- Category ID: Whatever is listed in the out_cat_id setting on the Delicious Blog Posting page.
Once the settings are filled in, click Make Blog Post. The tool will fetch all your links for the specified date and post them to your blog, just like del.icio.us should have done.
You must be running Firefox 3.0 or later to install this extension.
