I mentioned previously that I wanted to make a WordPress plugin that would touch up the posts created by the del.icio.us “daily blog post” feature. I’ve tinkered with it on-and-off, and finally realized what was preventing the addition of the
rel="tag" microformat (I forgot to double-escape some backslashes in a string). So, I present for your automated link posting pleasure, the del.icio.us daily blog post fixer plugin (.zip).
The plugin serves two purposes: it lets you set your own title, instead of the “links for 2006-01-30” format that del.icio.us uses, and it adds a
rel="tag" attribute to the del.icio.us tag links (because I like microformats, and one day somebody might make a service that utilizes this information to aggregate tags in the wild across multiple tagging services).
The default post title is set to “Daily Links”. If you want it to be something different, change the variable indicated in the plugin code. I didn’t think it was worth the trouble to create an option screen for one little text string that you aren’t likely to want to change, once you’ve set it. It’s GPL licensed, so share and enjoy!
