Notify everyone in a specified Campfire chat room when you publish a blog post. This would mainly be used for companies whose employees hang around in the chat room all day, but don’t necessarily check the website.

This plugin requires cURL support on your WordPress server.

Here are a few things I’d like to implement in upcoming versions:

  • Ping the Campfire API to get a list of your allowed rooms and allow you to select the room’s “nicename” via a dropdown instead of the Room ID.
  • Add more text pattern variables.
