Status.net servers like Identi.ca and MyXavier are getting more and more popular since it’s possible to follow users on different servers without having to sign up at each individual server. This means that you can have an account at for example Identi.ca and follow another user at MyXavier.com without signing up for another account at MyXavier.com 😀To make it easy for you to update your status with your latest blog posts we at Xavier Media have created a WordPress plugin that will post an status update to any Status.net server. If you have several accounts on different Status.net servers you can have the plugin to post to all your accounts, just specify the servers to update with your status and fill in the user names.
Once the plugin is activated in your WordPress blog a new status update will be posted to each of the specified accounts every time you make anew blog post.
Since the Status.net API used by the plugin to update statuses is compatible with Twitters own API you can of course also update your status at Twitter with this plugin too. Just use server api.twitter.com, path 1 and your Twitter user name and password.
If you would like to use short links in your status updates (most of us do), you can of course select one of seven different link shortener services:
To get the plugin, please have a look at the WP Status.net plugin web site.
Do you have suggestions for new features you think we should add in the plugin? Please let us know and perhaps we can add them in the next release 😉
