This was some kind of art ‘installation’ in a funky building our funky friends Graham & Kate took us to when we were over visiting funky Amsterdam. It was funky – there were 64 light bulbs suspended from the ceiling, in a square. Not entirely sure why…..

Also, this post is The First Automated Post using SmugPress, my own WordPress plug-in that integrates Smugmug photos into my WordPress photoblog.

I’ve been developing this since the blog began, but this is it now working in a releasable state. The work-flow is as follows:

  1. Upload photo to a “PhotoBlog Images” folder in Smugmug.
  2. Log Into WordPress. Navigate to Manage->SmugPress Images.
  3. Select your photo from the list, click “Create Draft”, then type in the post text.
  4. There is no step 4.

I’m hoping to distribute an beta release soon. If interested, let me know.

Change to demo WordPress.

Nice, you got WordPress up and running then I guess?

How is it working in production?

Well, I still have to visit my smugmug site to manually upload the photos.

Apart from that it’s “feature complete”, and all I need to do is add some bells n whistles. Also, want to tidy up the source before anyone else casts a critical eye over it.. then decide on a licence, most likely GPL.

Next thing he will do is automate all the comments from all of us with suitable ass kissing comments – all available in a wee drop down box.

So – I am goin to insert the word Eskimo in this posting for no reason what so ever – just so that it probably wont be used again :)

nice photo. i like most the bulb reflection within the main bulb.

Now that I see the photo on the site… I wish I’d risked serious burns to clean off some of the muck and marks.

Although I like the concept, am sure I have a dimmer switch and a spare bulb socket kicking around….

SmugPress sounds very interesting! Any updates on the status?
