ecmanaut: Blogger publish ping and categorizer tool

by ecmanaut
1) Oh, that variant was new to me. I think I fixed it now, and incidentally also might have managed to fix the ftp publishing mode while at it.<BR/><BR/>2) I suggest adding a <code>div.tags { display:none; }</code> clause to your CSS section at the top of

ecmanaut: Blogger publish ping and categorizer tool

by ecmanaut
1) I'm afraid publishing by ftp is <a href="http://ecmanaut.blogspot.com/2005/11/blogger-publish-ping-and-categorizer.html#caveats">not supported yet</a>.<br/><br/>2) I probably don't understand what you mean. If you want the Del.icio.us text field not to

Blogger's CAPTCHA overuse

by ecmanaut
They do, in the particular case when a blog author has the Blogger internal flag "likely splogger" set. But only then. Are you still not cleared from that suspicion, Jasper? I had it for a few days at most, before being cleared by some anonymous Blogger r

ecmanaut: Styling your blog post tags list with CSS

by ecmanaut
I did it <a href="http://ecmanaut.blogspot.com/2005/12/styling-your-blog-post-tags-list-with.html#q1">like this</a>. I'm not going to go into any detail about tweaking that, though, or adopting it for other templates.

Backing up your Blogger blogs

by ecmanaut
Indeed, it only lists the latest 100 posts, and this post (counting a few uncompleted drafts) is number 101, just pushing my first post off the page.<br><br>Still, it is a somewhat useful default strategy for doing incremental post backups.

Template upgrades

by ecmanaut
While I haven't dug up your code to look at it in its own environment, I believe it might be a bit difficult to help get that working the way you want it to, if Jasper's link in the post above and appropriate application of &lt;ItemPage&gt; (and the other

Template fixes for Some Assembly Required

by ecmanaut
Excellent idea, and feel very free to cut'n'paste together a version of it based on your own blog and mail it to me? Chances are I'll be very slow on upgrades the time just ahead of us (I'm going to visit my girlfriend in the other end of the country for

BlogThis! with my updated post tagger helper

by ecmanaut
Not yet, no, unless <a href="http://ecmanaut.blogspot.com/2005/12/permalinks-and-their-applications.html#c113393903692885545">a rather technical hint</a> counts. A post on it will most likely appear eventually, though.

Central hosting of all javascript libraries

by ecmanaut
While I believe I might indeed possess the <i>technical</i> skills required to devise, setup, run and develop this endeavour, I am not backed by the kind of business organization that would ensure longevity or quality of service for an operation on this s

BlogThis! with my updated post tagger helper

by ecmanaut
The BlogThis! part of it really isn't quite feature complete yet; there is no <i>fully</i> automated part that logs in to Del.icio.us to store your post there, it is presently just a link that gets added to the result page when using the normal Blogger pu

Template fixes for Some Assembly Required

by ecmanaut
Now that you mention it, I notice I didn't quite implement it to specs, even though I thought I did; Blogger holds both homepage and profile links among the template tags and I didn't notice picking the wrong one. Whether it might have become better or wo

Template upgrades

by ecmanaut
The reason for javascript to handle backlinks is that this is how Blogger adds the backlinks to blogs; it's not template tags rendered server side but actually template tags that get parsed client side, inject one script tag per post having backlinks and

A map mashup feasibility study

by ecmanaut
Do you happen to have any pointers to RSS (or better still, JSON or JSONP) feeds of geocaches near a coordinate, or perhaps within a bounding box given by two lat/long pairs? That would make it approachable as a quick hack, for the sheer fun of it.<br><br

Blogger publish ping and categorizer tool

(That's weird; I was dead sure I had already commented on this?!) Anyway, this is something I can probably fix, with a bit of help from you. If you could save a version of your <b>Your blog published successfully</b> page, script turned <i>off</i> (or, b

Blogger Del.icio.us categorizer script

As it happens (and you also seem to have noticed), I later wrote up a separate article on <a href="http://ecmanaut.blogspot.com/2005/12/styling-your-blog-post-tags-list-with.html" rel="nofollow">styling the tags list with CSS</a>.

Styling your blog post tags list with CSS

We had better explicitly specify a suitable left padding too, which is what <i>actually</i> reserves the room for the background there. Thanks for the heads up; my own template already had that bit built-in.

I'm afraid approach three is <a href="http://lists.del.icio.us/pipermail/discuss/2005-December/004543.html">dead in the water</a>; the tags field is intentionally filtered by the login page.<br><br>I <i>might</i> be coerced into making a Greasemonkey bypa

There is. The trick is to make sure you are logged in at Del.icio.us when you follow the link; then all the info will already be there when you click it.<br><br>This can be accomplished in many ways -- either, if you, like me, keep very long browser sessi

The relevant magic is in the function noComment() in my present page template, and in making sure that the structure of the comments section looks like:<br/><br/><code>&lt;div class="comment"&gt; [...]<br/>&lt;ul class="&lt$BlogItemPermalinkURL$;&gt;"&gt;

Blogger publish ping TODO

by ecmanaut
<i>Looking at those long-term goals it looks like some of this would be more suited to moving to a full-scale extension, rather than a userscript.</i><br><br>People often seem to feel that way once a user script or grows advanced; I'm not quite sure why.
