  3. This is a really useful plugin. Thanks!!

  4. Hi…I am using WP ver.3.1.1 but after installing the plugin I don’t get any settings option where I can insert the PIN / Email

  5. Robbie – in that version of WP, you have to go to the main Settings section and in there there will be another section for CrossPress

  7. efficient & easy to use
    THX

  8. very good, but is send no to the blogger-blog =(

  9. ok i give up -.- I sent no return / line break

  10. There’s a patch needed to make it send linebreaks to blogger, you need to get it to create HTML properly. The plugin uses $post->post_content which is the raw content stored in the WP database – these have newline (\n) chars which are no good on HTML.

    Line 133 of crosspress.php needs changing to:

    $msg = apply_filters(‘the_content’, $post->post_content);

    Which will call all the nice filters that the template manager uses to generate the HTML normally but so that it can be sent in an email.

    Please can you patch the source and re-upload to the plugin repository.

    We could do with a ‘re-publish post’ option adding to the edit post screen.

  11. then how are we gonna insert it? its the same for me, it cannot be posted to blogger.

  15. Thank you! Work so well

  16. I’ve just installed it with WordPress 3.4.1. and it’s crossposting to Blogger.

    I used James patch (thanks) to correct line breaks. And it worked. Now I just have to figure a way to send the featured image along with the text…

    Should this be updated in wordpress.org repository? It’s no longer listing (due to oldage, I guess).

  17. Added the following for crossposting to wordpress.com:

    //add tags and categories using shortcodes for WordPress.com
    if (strpos($to,’wordpress.com’) !== false) {
    $tags = “[tag ".get_the_tag_list('', ', ','')."]“;

    $cats = “[category ".get_the_category_list('', ', ','')."]“;
    $msg .= $tags;
    $msg .= $cats;
    }
