Postalicious is a WordPress plugin that automatically posts your delicious, Google Reader, Reddit, Yahoo Pipes, Jumptags, Pinboard, or Diigo bookmarks to your blog. The exact details of how your bookmarks are posted are very customizable and are designed to meet your specific needs. Postalicious uses the psuedo-cron functionality introduced in WordPress 2.1 to schedule automatic hourly updates. If you do not have WordPress 2.1 or later installed, you will still be able to use Postalicious, but you will have to perform the updates manually.

Usage

Postalicious is very easy to use. You only need to set up your preferences and then click on either the “Activate Hourly Updates” or “Update Now” buttons. “Activate Daily Updates” will schedule automatic updates every hour and fetch any new bookmarks you have added. The “Update Now” button retrieves any new bookmarks found when you click it.

Features

  • Automatically create posts in your blog with your bookmarks that allow you to keep your blog updated just by bookmarking your favorite websites!
  • Works with delicious, Google Reader, Reddit, Yahoo Pipes, Jumptags, Pinboard, and Diigo.
  • Complete control over how often your bookmarks are posted and how many bookmarks should appear on each post.
  • If the post is not ready for prime time, Postalicious creates a draft with the pending bookmarks which you can publish any time or wait for Postalicious to publish it when it meets your publishing settings.
  • Full customization on the look of posts created by Postalicious, including templates for the post slug, post title, and post body.
  • Integrates with WordPress 2.3 tags, or with Ultimate Tag Warrior and Simple Tagging plugins in earlier version of WordPress.
  • Filter the bookmarks that are posted to your blog depending on how you tagged them.
  • Logs all the activity so that you know what Postalicious did and when.

Custom date formats

Postalicious 2.0 introduces the ability to display dates in different formats. All of the templates in Postalicious that allow %date%, %datestart% or %dateend% now support custom formats. If used by themselves, %date%, %datestart% and %dateend% will use the default date format template to display the date. To use a custom format, you only need to add the date format you wish to be used to display the date enclosed by ‘{‘ and ‘}’ before the second ‘%’ sign. For example %datestart{F jS}% will be replaced by the start date using the format: ‘F jS’. The formatting options are the ones used by PHP which can be found here: http://www.php.net/date . You can use as many custom dates as you want in each template, and you can combine the use of custom and default dates.
