I had a quick look at Nextscripts: Social Network Auto Poster. It claims to be able to forward posts to other social networks. These include as targets, twitter, linkedin and facebook. The also offer Google+ but that needs an additional library which may be chargeable. I need to work on this a bit more.
Since the blog is already forwarding to Facebook and now Medium via IFFTTT, which are the most important targets and I am unsure I want everything to go through to linkedin or even twitter, this may not be as useful as I hoped. I returned to this in Aug 2016 as I was interested in occasionally forwarding my micro blog to Medium. Continue reading “Nextscripts: Social Network Autoposter”→
Hmm, there is only one map per dashboard, that’s not so good and it seems based on the Risk Map. It doesn’t seem as flexible as I hoped. It’s called Interactive World Map and is available as a plugin here. The plugin comes from a company Fla-shop and is an on-ramp to chargeable content. Their sales and marketing page for wordpress is here. It works quite nicely as a sales portal entry point, but doesn’t do what I need.
I question whether this is functional enough to genuinely act as a try-before-buy. It’s a good looking widget though. Haven’t quite got it working on wptouch.
There’s probably the opportunity to rehash the jokes about US political geography, particularly over the widget’s treatment of the Russian Federation and maybe even Turkey.
I wonder if the HTML usermap feature would work with this.
In August 2015, the vendor upgraded the plugin, significantly. The map above is the new one.
I have been using the Related Posts plugin. I just took an update, and it rewrote the parameters, the default is to have two copies of related posts inserted because the default is to have “Auto Insert Related Posts (or add <?php wp_related_posts()?> to your single post template)” set to yes.
I have also selected the Modern theme, with Display thumbnails off.
I am currently experimenting with tweet-button, which I’ll probably keep and Add This, which I probably won’t this time; I reckon Vote it Up and Tweet are what I want. (I’ll drop addthis because in order to tune it to do what I want, will involve a shit load of programming in languages I don’t know. It used to be easier, but integrating the vote-this-up, particularly given that it may be abandonware, is not something I want to take on. I am interested in offering twitter, delicious, mail, bookmark and vote this up.)
