Hi, I have created a new plugin that allows you to add a "Post to Myspace" link to your blog using b2evo's widgets and containers.

Basically, I was looking for a way to duplicate my blog posts on b2evo to my Myspace page. Since Myspace does not allow importing of RSS feeds, this seemed to be the best way so far (not a big fan of cut & paste).

So, when you click on the "Post to Myspace" link, your blog post contents will get copied over to your Myspace blog (or bulletin... there is a preview page where you can define what is happening and see what's going to be copied).

Additionally, you can make this link visible to all readers, so they can also post your content on their blogs (viral marketing, which you may or may not want depending on copyright & content).

Here's the link to more info and download:
http://manual.b2evolution.net/Post2myspace_plugin

NOTE: this has only been tested on v2.4.2.

Cheers!

Hi,

I find your plugin a very good idea. Unfortunately I haven't being able to make it work in my blog. I must be missing something.
I'm using b2evolution version 2.4.6.
I've installed the plugin and I get this error in whatever container I place the widget in:

      Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in /home/guillerm/public_html/plugins/post2myspace_plugin/_post2myspace.plugin.php on line 118

      Catchable fatal error: Object of class post2myspace_plugin could not be converted to string in /home/guillerm/public_html/inc/users/model/_group.class.php on line 324

Also, maybe its because I haven't being able to make it work but, how does this plugin know my myspace account?
I believe I'm missing something here although I did read your instructions.

Regards

I have error code where my widget should be:

Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in /home/purpleme/public_html/blog/plugins/post2myspace_plugin/_post2myspace.plugin.php on line 118

Catchable fatal error: Object of class post2myspace_plugin could not be converted to string in /home/purpleme/public_html/blog/inc/users/model/_group.class.php on line 324

Hmmmm ... thanks for the error info, guys. I'll take a look into it and see what's up.

Gcasanova, you will be prompted to enter your myspace account info after you click on the link to Post to Myspace (i.e. from the Myspace page).... it will be more obvious once it's working.

Daethian2, what version of b2evo are you using?

Thx,
J

Change this :

		if( ! $current_User->check_perm( 'item_post!'.$Item->status, 'edit', false, $this ) ) { 

To :

		if( empty( $current_User ) || ! $current_User->check_perm( 'item_post!'.$Item->status, 'edit', false, $this ) ) {

Sorry... I'm not coming back till I've had some sleep. :-/

Thanks for the help, Yabba. I'll make the change and post the new version (should be up in 10 min). Let me know if this doesn't fix the problem... unfortunately I can't reproduce it yet here on my b2evo installation (but I'm running an older version 2.4.2).

Cheers,
J

I attempted the fix and it didn't work but given my earlier dumb ass attack it's entirely possibly I did something wrong LOL

I think Yabba or someone else ..actually Topanga I think ...had admin access on my blog. I can let someone else look if that helps?

Jaromy:

I Updated the plugin to version 1.1, installed the plugin, placed it in a widget container first and then in another and in both cases received the error:

Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in /home/.../public_html/plugins/post2myspace_plugin/_post2myspace.plugin.php on line 119

Catchable fatal error: Object of class post2myspace_plugin could not be converted to string in /home/.../public_html/inc/users/model/_group.class.php on line 324

Cool, thanks for the testing and feedback guys. Sorry for the lack of response - i've been swamped with other stuff lately (you know, my regular job + music :) ).

Are you guys logged in as a user with admin privileges? Just wondering if this is an issue.

I'll try to get a fix later this week... in the meantime if you know a little PHP, I would suggest commenting out lines 119-121 in the _post2myspace.plugin.php file. that seems to be the offending clause.

Cheers,
J

yes I'm logged in admin

commenting out totally borked my site

Hey guys,

I have a new version of the plug-in available for download. It will fix the problems you have been seeing and reporting.

Basically the problem results from adding the widget into a non-Post container (such as the sidebar). I fixed the code so that it doesn't crap out...

Ultimately, however, you should be adding the widget into a new Post container so that the Post To Myspace link will link to the actual posting. Otherwise, PostToMyspace plugin will not know which post you are interested in linking to, and will default to the Blog link/url.

I updated the documentation to make this a little bit clearer, and included some code examples. So please do check that out if you have any doubts or questions.

Cheers,
J

I am going to uninstall this plugin. Last night I discovered that somehow my entire MySpace profile was blanked out. I really didn't use it other than promoting my real sites....so I'm not going to waste the time rebuilding the account.

Hopefully casanova can help you test this.

Thanks for your efforts!

Hi Daethian2,

Sorry your Myspace profile is messed up :(.

If it's any consolation, I'm almost 100% certain it's not due to this plugin, because the error you were getting would have stopped any sort of data from being sent to Myspace. Additionally, Myspace would require that you login before actually posting any sort of data to your profile.

Still, though, it's never fun to find a blank page. And I know what you mean about Myspace - it's a pain to customize!

Thanks for helping out and the feedback.

OH I'm certain it wasn't you either. In fact, the only change I had made to MS was to activate the new random playlist option. Next log in... BLANK. They don't even make it easy to create a back up of your profile you know? When I tried contacting them they wrote me off as some dipshit looking for HTML help.

Ah well!
