Crawling back to Moblog

Um. Well, this is awkward.

I haven't updated this moblog much over the last couple of years, mainly because all of the photos I've wanted to instantly share have gone out via Twitpic. Except now Twitpic's about to shut down, and take all those empheral visual gags with it.

I haven't come up with a complete solution to the problem as yet, but in the interim I've decided to move those hundred-odd Twitpic photos over to Moblog, so at least there's an online archive of them somewhere. Enjoy them! Well, some of them. And nice to be back.

:) whatever the reason - moblog remains like a family come and go as you want, no need to crawl it's an open door.

Aw, you're all lovely. So, as more people seem to be reading this page than are monitoring Moblog help... do any of you know how I could integrate my Moblog account so that new posts are automatically posted on Twitter? I've tried using the option in the profile settings, but it just keeps crashing on me.

No, it doesn't work for me either. There's still a few things to fix around here!

hello again!
There is a way because I set it up years ago. I just don't remember how... I think it was a twitterside thing

my info is that twitter changed their API and it is now one of a number of things that need sorting if, hopefully when JC can find the right developer.
He needs someone reliable with Django experience to migrate Moblog.co.uk to a new, cheaper, host and ultimately just fix it up.

Hola! So, um, yeah, auto posting to twitter won't work because our social protocols are currently out of date as Twitter now uses proper OAuth which we have not implemented yet.

To auto post to Twitter, the way I do it is via IFTTT.com or Twitterfeed.com - both are pretty self explanatory. But essentially, you take this feed URL: http://moblog.net/feeds/blog/SpankTM (just change username after /blog/ to get any feed for any blog) and then complete the Oauth step on the social network and it will auto post.

IFTTT seems to do exactly what I need. (I also tried out Twitterfeed, but got bored waiting for it to do anything.) Thanks for the help!

IFTTT is amazing. I wrote about it here, I like it so much! You can have the post go from moblog to Twitter and in that moment append #fb or #li to the post to then auto post from Twitter to Linkedin or Facebook.

I use it for millions of things - but things like saving links from Twitter or regular blog posts for offline reading is incredibly useful.
