NAME ^

wppost - DEPRECATED post to wordpress blog

DESCRIPTION ^

I like the wordpress gui for users and for ocassional management. However, what if I want to populate a million entries at once? Or upload a set of galleries with descriptions totaling 1000 images? That would "intake rear". This is a small tool to help with taking care of this problem.

PARAMETERS ^

   -c category, can be a list separated by commas, no spaces
   -t title
   -i description, main body of post, if it has a slash, it is interpreted as a file to slurp
      like a text or html file
   -D iso formatted date for post, can be left out

If these are not provided, they will be sought in ~/.wppost -U username -P password -p address of xmlrpc.php file, http://yoursite/wpinstalldir/xmlrpc.php

OPTION FLAGS

   -T if there are image attachments, place them as thumbnails only, with link, not just resized

USAGE EXAMPLES ^

Most basic of usage, (provided you have a ~/.wppost file)

   wppost -t 'hi everyone' -i 'i just wanted to say hello'

If you want to specify two different categories:

   wppost -t 'Another Apple' -i 'Apples are really great. I do love them so.' -c food,rant -D 20071231

If the body of the post is in a file

   wppost -t 'title here' -i ./content.txt 

If the content of the post is in a file and you want to use the file name as the title

   wppost -i ./Title_Here.txt

If you want to have file attachments:

   wppost -t 'recent photos' -i 'these are recent pictures i took' ./*jpg

CONFIG FILE ^

It can be exhaustive to pass username, password,and proxy every time. Also, it's a risk on certain machines, because commands can be seen in the system by ps xau, so, it would show your parameters in the process list, thus showing your password.

you should have a config file that is YAML formatted in ~/.wppost, and then you can ommit the -U -P and -p parameters when you post.

~/.wppost

 ---
 U: username
 P: password
 p: 'http://proxy.address'

NOTES ^

If you provide a -D date, it will be checked for iso compliance. If you provide categories, it is checked that the category exists. You must provide -t title and -i description.

supported struct is...

 title - post's title, must be string
 description  - main body of post, must be string

 mt_excerpt
 mt_text_more
 mt_allow_comments
 mt_allow_pings

 mt_tb_ping_urls
 dateCreated - can be empty, auto filled out for current time if empty, must be iso8601
 categories - list, array of categories to post into
