Synchroniser WordPress et Delicious: EG-Delicious-Sync

As a lot of WordPress users, I also use the bookmarker Delicious. Both of the tools are efficient to manage links, but we have to decide if we want to manage our links in the both tools, or use each of these tools differently. If we choose the first case, we have to enter the links twice.
Some plugins allow to display the Delicious links in our blog, but most of them just read RSS feeds coming from Delicious. This method has two disadvantages: we can get only the last updated or added bookmarks, and it can slow down the blog.
EG-Delicious-Sync allow to backup the Delicious links into WordPress links database. You can then use these links as usual, with the WordPress features (widgets, templates tags …).

Description

Most of plugins related to Delicious allow to display Delicious links, or synchronize the last links. They use RSS features of Delicious, with three main disadvantages:

  • They can adress only the last updated or added links,
  • Use RSS, even with a cache, can slow down your blog,
  • Links are not stored permanently in the WordPress database.

EG-Delicious-Sync use the HTTP API of Delicious, and allows to perform a true full backup of your Delicious links, into the WordPress database, in the standard table (wp_links). So, after this synchronization, you can use the standard features of WordPress to manage and display these links (widgets, template tags …), as if the Delicious posts are local.

You can customize the backup (or synchronization) with a number of options:

  • You can entirely control the links classification, by assigning the WordPress categories of links, with the Delicious bundles, or the Delicious tags,
  • You can specify if you want a single categories per link, or allow several categories,
  • Specify if you want to keep the links already existing in the WordPress databases

The plugin provides also:

  • Display Delicious network badge (widgets, or template tags),
  • Display Tagsroll,
  • An enhanced blogroll widget,
  • Synchronization of tags between WordPress, and Delicious,
  • A full backup of the Delicious database (same format than the export/import functions of Delicious).

Installation

Requirements

EG-Delicious-Sync requires with WordPress 2.6 and later, and PHP 4.3 and later.

Installation

  • The plugin is available for download in the WordPress plugins repository,
  • Once downloaded, uncompress the file eg-delicious-wp-sync.zip,
  • Copy or upload the uncompressed files in the directory wp-content/plugins in your WordPress platform,
  • Activate the plugin, in the administration interface, through the menu Plugins.

The plugin is now ready to be used.
You can also use the WordPress 2.7/2.8 features, and install the plugin directly from the WordPress interface.

Then you can go to menu Settings / EG-Delicious to set plugin parameters

Configuration

  1. The configuration panel is available in the Settings / EG-Delicious menu,
  2. First, you have to give your Delicious username, and password. These parameters will allow the plugin to query Delicious API, to get posts list, tags list …
    First step of the configuration

  6. Options are saved, and you are ready to lanch your first synchronisation session.

Synchronize

  1. To synchronize the Delicious and WordPress links databases, use the menu Links / Delicious Sync.,
  2. Click on the start synchronization button,
  3. The plugin sends requests to Delicious and WordPress to collect links, tags, and bundles, and build synchronization table,
  4. When the calculation is terminated, the plugin displays this synchronization table. You can choose the categories, and the action to operate on each link,
  5. When you click on the Update changes button, the plugin proceed with all links when the action, and categories fields are not empty,
  6. The session is terminated, when you synchronize all links, or when you press the Stop synchronization button.

Tags Synchronization

The plugin can import the Delicious tags into the WordPress database. This feature allows you, for example, to standardize your classification between the two platforms. You can access to the tags synchronization through the menu Posts / EG-Delicious Tags.

Tags Synchronization
Tags Synchronization

The plugin displays the two lists, and the recommended actions. You can confirm this action, or change it, for each tag. After the validation, the plugin will execute all the operations requested.

Backup

If you don’t want to synchronize your bookmarks, but easily trigger a backup of the Delicious Database, you can use the menu Tools / Backup Delicious. With this menu, you can launch backups of Delicious, keep these backups, delete or dowload them.

Automatic post publication

Delicious displays, for each link, the number of members who bookmark it. This number can be consider as a good indicator of popularity. But adding all your posts into Delicious can be boring.

EG-Delicious-Sync can automatically add into Delicious, the posts you publish in WordPress. When you click on the Publish button, your post is immediately added to Delicious.

You can enable this function, by unsing the menu Settings / EG-Delicious. In this menu, you can:

  • Enable, or disable the publication mecanism,
  • Choose the tags to use during publication.
Publication automatique
Automatic publication

Please note that posts are also automatically suppressed from Delicious, when you delete them from WordPress.

Widgets

EG-Delicious add three widgets:

  • an enhanced blogroll,
  • a summary of your Delicious account (number of links, …). This summary is called NetWork Badge,
  • the list of Delicious tags, as tags cloud, or as simple list.

All of these three widgets share some common parameters: you can choose the display conditions. You can choose type of page (home, post, page, category …), or the language (useful if you manage a multilangual blog).

In detail:

  • EG-Delicious BlogRoll widgetdisplays the list of links, as do the standard blogroll widget, but with more parameters. You can choose:
    • to display list in one or two columns,
    • the maximum number of links to display,
    • one or more categories.
  • Network badge widget displays the NetWork Badge of your Delicious account. The widget shows the main information of your Delicious account (number of links, number of fans, …). You can choose to display or hide each field of the account.
  • Delicious tags widget displays the Delicious tags, as a tags cloud, or as a list. This widget can be useful if you don’t want to display your blogroll directly on your blog. With this widget, you just give a set of links to show your bookmarks. Can be interesting, if you have a huge bookmarks database.

Frequently Asked Questions

The plugin backups of Delicious links into the WordPress links database. To have a true synchronization, can we update the Delicious database with the WordPress links?
No, for the moment, because of constraints of the Delicious API:

  • This API allows us to create a link in Delicious database, but we cannot launch a big amount of requests at the same time, because of Delicious securization.
  • With this API, we cannot update a link. We just can delete and re-create it, but in this case, the date is wrong.

After a synchronization, a link appears several times in the list.

The EG-Delicious-Sync plugin uses the field « url » to compare the Delicious and WordPress links. Two links with the same name, but two different url, are two different links, from the plugin point of view.

Is it possible to have a dual-way tags synchronisation?

Unfortunately no. The Delicious API doesn’t include a command to create tags.

The Delicious backup feature can only be used in manual mode. It is possible to schedule it?

This feature is planned in a next version.

  1. Hi,
    The plugin doesn’t work properly. I am working again on it to solve all issues.
    it will take some weeks before publishing the new version.

    Thanks about your comment on the contact form. Now it works well, and I reopened comments for EG-Delicious plugin.

    Emmanuel.

  2. Hello,

    I am trying to sync and its stuck (will not move past this point) how do i reset this i have tried to uninstall and reinstall.

    Thank you for your help.

    (by the way your sites contact form is broken. i tried several times to contact you that way. the sapm check does not accept its own characters…)

  3. Hey,

    Using wordpress version 3.1.4 and have over 1200+ bookmarks on delicious, the plugin is ‘on-going’ after 2+ hours.

    This looks like a great plugin. Do you have any plans to perhaps update this?

    Dave

  4. @Kokosnot: as explain here, according Yahoo announcement, I stopped to work on the plugin. If the future of Delicious becomes more clear, I will restart the development.

  5. Have you solved the user authentication problem yet? Hope so, it was a great plugin! =)

  6. @Gilles: le plugin ne fonctionne pas en raison du changement du mode d’authentification de Delicious. Je travaille actuellement sur une version pour cela.

  7. Bonjour Emmanuel,

    Votre plugin EG-delicious (aux fonctionnalités fort intéressantes) ne semble pas fonctionner sur WordPress 3.0
    Y a-t-il qq chose à faire ? Le maintenez-vous toujours ? Puis-je éventuellement donner un coup de main ?

    Gilles

  8. merci emmanuel. je l’attends avec impatience! En moment j’utilise une « hacked » version de delicious-for-wordpress, qui marche pour le moment mais qui est vraiment inelegant. I’ll be checking back here for updates!

    Thanks,
    Matt

  9. @Daniel: J’y travaille, mais OAuth est une usine a gaz. Il suffit de regarder les plugins FlickR ou Twitter pour sans convaincre, pas un seul n’utilise la meme methode… J’etudie actuellement ces plugins, pour me faire une idee sur la methode que je vais utiliser. Je pense que la version definitive apparaitra au mois d’Octobre.

  10. @Matt: I am overloaded today, and won’t be able to work on the plugin during September.
    But, I saw several plugins published with OAuth librairies, and I am studying some of them to understand how it works.
    So I think I will be able to publish a new version of the plugin during October.

  11. Any chance you’ll havetime to work on the OAuth support? I was really excited to see if itwould work, but my delicious acct is unfortunately linked to my annoying yahoo id. Thanks agian!

    matt

  12. Same as my other colleagues

    ça marche pas… dommage, car j’ai une dizaine d’utilisateurs intéressés…

    Daniel

  13. hi

    when I try to sinc tags it retourns: « Impossible de charger egdel_tags_sync ».

    and when i try to change options, now is retourning « Error 17: A synchronization is started. You cannot modify options now. Please wait, and retry later. – User: xxxxx, start time: 2 Junio 2010 21:52. »

    I had to writte a new question password reminder for just when I signed in the old delicious account….. 🙁
    any idea?

    thanks!

  14. great! I have found an old delicious account to try,
    if it works i will send a don to help!

  15. Plugin is not dead, but unfortunately I haven’t enough time to develop the Oauth Authentication process.
    I think I will have more time during June. I saw some plugins using Yahoo authentication system (for Twitter for example). Reading sources of these plugins will help me to develop a solution quicker.
    I don’t think you can create a new delicious account without using Yahoo system.

  16. bonjour Emmanuel!
    Is this plugin dead?
    Is possible to create a new delicious account without yahoo to connect?
    thanks, looks a great plugin!

  17. The plugin doesn’t seem to work ( WP 2.92 ).

    In the settings I see my tag bundle and I can connect a category to it ( I only want to import the tags in the category )

    Synchronisation starts, however its doesn’t suggest the category for me. Synchronisation doesn’t seem to stop ( I left it running for half an hour, with less then 150 bookmarks ).

    I tried to make the tmp/backup writable but with no result. To backup function gives a message :
    ‘You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page’ when I click start manual backup.

    However the ‘checking configuration’ gives all green results.

    Any idea ? I really would like to use this plugin.

  18. Merci de ta réponse. Et bon courage pour régler ce problème qui doit être rageant, vu le peu de cas que font Yahoo et les autres grandes compagnies des développeurs indépendants.
    Au passage, as tu envisagé de faire évoluer ton plugin vers une solution indépendante de delicious, en l’interfaçant avec weave ou xmarks, qui permettent d’utiliser son propre serveur pour synchroniser ses favoris ?

  19. Phil,
    Je ne peux pas te donner de date. Cette semaine je suis en conges, mais avec pas mal de pain sur la planche. Apres, je bosse, donc il restera les nuits …
    Je suis, moi aussi coince par ce changement, puisque je ne peux plus rien synchroniser!
    Le systeme d’authentification propose par Yahoo est une veritable usine, et je n’arrive pas a faire fonctionner leur API correctement, et la doc Delicious est bourree d’erreurs.
    Il faut que j’arrive a faire une requete avec le nouveau systeme, puis que j’integre le tout dans le plugin.

    Toutes les autres solutions qui s’appuient sur l’API ont le meme probleme que mon plugin. Il reste donc les scripts bases sur les flux RSS, mais le niveau de fonctionnalites ne sera pas le meme…

    Il suffit de lire les forums « developer » de Delicious pour se rendre compte que la grande majorite des developpeurs sont furieux de la methode employee pour gerer le changement.

  20. Bonjour,
    Je venais prendre quelques nouvelles de EG-delicious, suite aux problème de connexion rencontrés il y a quelques jours.
    Sans te presser bien sûr, as tu déjà une idée du temps qu’il va te falloir pour le résoudre ?
    De mon côté, ne pouvant créer de compte séparé de Yahoo pour accéder à Delicious, je suis bloqué.
    Je cherche donc à savoir si je dois me mettre en quête d’une autre solution.
    A très bientôt, car dans tous les cas je continuerai à visiter régulièrement ton site. Je viens ainsi d’y trouver ton pugin EG series qui me sera fort utile lui aussi.

  21. @Gregoire: Oui j’ai lu la page en question. Mais j’ai commence a regarder l’authentification OAuth, et c’est une veritable usine a gaz.
    Il faut notamment creer une application Web, puisque Yahoo ne repond qu’a des domaines « verifies »!!!!

  22. Bonjour Emmanuel,

    Justement pour info, l’authentification a ec un compte yahoo sur delicious est apparemment différente comme expliué ici : http://delicious.com/help/api

    Authentication
    All /v1 api’s require https requests and HTTP-Auth.
    To access data from accounts created using a Yahoo! ID, use the same API’s as below, but change the path to /v2, and make HTTP requests using OAuth as provided by the Yahoo! Developer Network.
    For more information on OAuth and its usage with Delicious, see our step by step example.

  23. Je me suis finalement decide a fusionner mes comptes Delicious et Yahoo. Je confirme que le plugin ne fonctionne plus lorsque le compte est un compte Yahoo.
    Je vais donc m’atteler au probleme.

  24. Bonjour,
    Et merci pour cette réponse rapide.
    Le problème intervient dès la phase de configuration. Je saisi le nom et le mot de passe du compte delicious et j’ai ce message d’erreur.

    J’utilise un identifiant Yahoo. Sauf erreur, delicious ne me laisse pas le choix, lors de la création de mon compte (je l’ai créé hier pour pouvoir utiliser ton plugin)

    Version php : 5.2.12 et pas de plugin de cache sur wordpress.

  25. Bonjour,

    J’ai une question: la phase de configuration (Réglages / EG-Delicious) s’est-elle bien passee?
    Normalement, la page d’options, une fois le nom et le mot de passe saisis, doit proposer la liste des tags et des bundles du compte indique.
    Si cette etape là fonctionne, je ne vois pas pourquoi cette meme collecte de tags ne fonctionnerait pas au niveau de la synchro …
    Mais tu n’est pas le premier a me dire cela.
    Quelques questions:
    – Quelle est la version de PHP?
    – Utilises-tu un plugin de cache?
    – Utilises-tu le compte Yahoo, ou le compte Delicious?

  26. Bonjour,
    Ce plug-in semble alléchant. Merci pour ce travail !
    Mais… Je n’arrive pas à le faire fonctionner chez moi. J’ai un message d’erreur dès ma première tentative de synchronisation : Error 12: Cannot get tags from Delicious – Error during querying Delicious
    Et ce après une bonne dizaine de tentatives.
    J’utilise WordPress 2.9.1 sur un hébergement OVH

  27. Hello,
    after installing and set options I get the following messages:

    In addition the option dialog can’t find data anymore.
    I use wordpress 2.9.1.

    Can you help? Thanks

  28. How long do these synchronizations take? And what happens when they’re successful? What’s the feedback? I started one an hour ago. At a certain point, it’d be easier to just transfer these links manually.

  29. En fait de message d’erreur, lorsque je lance la synchronisation dans le menu « Liens », après avoir fait la revue des 10 premiers liens et avoir rempli le champ action ET le champ classification des 25 premiers liens de la page 1 (sur 66), puis avoir cliqué sur « page suivante », j’ai une page vide. Impossible de continuer la synchro et pas de message d’erreur.
    En espérant que ça t’aidera pour la maj de ton plugin. Si tu souhaites des infos + détaillées, je epux te faire un petit benchmark. Tu as mon mail.

  30. Bonjour Grégoire,

    Je n’ai pas encore testé ce plugin avec la version 2.9. J’avoue avoir du mal avec cette version: son comportement semble assez different de celui des versions Beta. Et comme il ne s’est ecoule que 24 h entre la RC1 et la sortie officielle, je n’ai pas pu faire les tests qui s’imposaient … Deux autres plugins etaient carrement en vrac !
    Petit message d’ailleurs a l’equipe « WordPress »: une RC1 24h avant la sortie officielle, c’est peut etre bien pour le buzz, mais pour les developpeurs de plugin, et meme les utilisateurs, cela ne sert a rien!

    Quand tu dis ne pas avoir reussi la synchronisation, y-a-t-il un message d’erreur?

  31. Bonjour Emmanuel,

    Ce plugin est exactement ce que je cherchais. Pb, j’ai tenté d’utiliser ton plugin avec une version 2.9 de WordPress et j’ai eu beaucoup de mal avec la synchronisation. En fait tellement que je n’ai pas réussi. Il faut dire que j’avais plus de 1500 liens et une bonne 100taine de tags. Serait ce à cause de la msse de données à importer ou à cause de la v 2.9 de WordPress ?

    En tout cas, c’est un énorme boulot, félicitations à toi !

  32. Hi Salvatore,

    Today EG-Delicious uses requests such as https://{username}:{password}@api.del.icio.us/v1/posts’ (or tags, or bundles) …
    The username and password must be the same used when you login from the home page of Delicious (Sign In button).

    I don’t plan any change about this method of requesting Delicious, but I will read documents you show in comment.

  34. And one more: On article page and EG-Delicous Tag page i got ‘Error 21: Cannot get tags from Delicious – Error while querying Delicious.’.

    How can i check if i used the correct delicious user options?

    Thanks, Salvatorius

  35. Hello, if installed EG-Delicious on WordPress 2.8.4.

    After installing (from admin interface) on Options page (delicious user and password) i got ‘Error 22: Cannot get bundles from Delicious – Error while querying Delicious.’.

    Can somebody help?

    Thanks, Salvatorius

  36. Ah yes, that makes sense, because I found that it did, after a while, catch on to the new settings at Delicious. All functioning well, it’s a great plugin. Thanks for making it!Another question: ss there any way to list the links in their categories in a page? i.e. to have a links page…

  37. If you use WP 2.8, the plugin uses the transient cache. The cache entries are stored in wp_options table.
    But cache duration is 15 minutes only !
    If you know how to access to our WP database, you can delete enties: _transient_posts, _transient_timeout_posts, _transient_tags, _transient_timeout_tagss, _transient_bundles, _transient_timeout_bundles.
    I will publish a new version of the plugin, at the beginning of next weeks. This new version enhances the cache management.

  38. As part of setting up thus plugin, I changed my Delicious tags, bundles, etc around… however when I start a full synchronisation, the plug seems to insist on seeing the information from Delicous as it was on the first time I ran a synchronization — i.e. as though it’s reading it from a cache, rather than connecting and getting fersh information. I’ve checked the contents of the ‘tmp’ directory in the plugin folder, and there’s nothing there other than a ‘dummy.txt’ file. Any ideas?

  39. That is correct Emmanuel. I am speaking of « Publish Post » feature in my previous post.

    Thanks.

  40. Hello,

    Your plugin works great, except for one part. For some reason, the « notes » part of an article posted on the delicious website appears without any spaces. Do you have any idea why this is happening?

  41. Merci pour les compliments.
    Concernant le bug, j’ai reussi a le reproduire sur ma plateforme de test.
    Je publierai la correction dans la prochaine version a venir (debut de semaine prochaine).

  42. Bonsoir,
    l’installation se fait sans problème, c’est après avoir indiquer username et mot de passe que la procédure semble se bloquer. La fenêtre devient blanche hormis le menu latéral de WP et le navigateur m’indique que le chargement est terminé.
    Bravo pour la réactivité et, j’en profite, pour le contenu de qualité de votre site que je visite souvent, sans beaucoup commenter, je le reconnais…

  43. Bonjour,
    L’ecran blanc s’affiche-t-il tout de suite apres l’installation (dans la page de gestion des plugins), ou lorsque vous demandez la page des options?

    La demande d’identifiant Delicious est normale et fait partie de la phase de configuration (si elle s’affiche dans la page des options).
    La page d’option demande d’abord les username/password Delicious puis, apres validation, se sert de ces informations pour télécharger la configuration de Delicious (tags et bundles), pour effectuer la suite de la configuration.

  44. Bonjour,hélas pour moi, c’est un écran blanc après l’installation et la demande de mes identifiants delicious.
    configuration : php5.2.5 et WordPress 2.8.4

  45. There is a possible bug in 1.1.6 blogroll widget. I added the Post ID in the widget configuration and later decided that I didn’t want a link at the bottom of each of my categories. I removed the Post ID and re-saved the settings but it doesn’t clear the value and the link to « List of the Links » remains in the widget’s display.

  46. Hi Jason,

    Today, the synchronization can be used in manual mode only.
    In next versions, I plan to
    – allow synchronization without interactions (in the current version, we have to clicks on buttons),
    – manage incremental synchronizations (sync only posts created of modified since the last sync),
    – allow scheduling

  47. Hey There,

    Just to clarify: does the sync need to be run manually whenever i want to import my latest delicious links? Or, does it happen in the background automatically?

    If it’s the former.. could I write a cronjob to make it automatic? Any leads?

  48. Hi Emmanuel,

    Thanks for your reply!

    Yes, my Delicious links are appearing in my blogroll links when I run the synchronisation.

    It just doesn’t seem to work the other way.

    J

  49. Hi!

    I love your plugin. Great idea!

    However, I am getting this error message every time I try to publish a new post.
    Error 18: Cannot publish post in Delicious.
    The post goes ahead and is published, but is not submitted to delicious. Any ideas?

    Cheers,

    James.

  50. Hi, Thank’s for replying. I want this plugin to make posts from my new delicious bookmarks. The bookmark name should be the post title, the notes should be the post content and the post tags should be the tags from the delicious bookmark. And I want the posts in categories depending on bookmark tags. I also want to make this plugin to create roundups. Ex. It needs to select more bookmarks from Delicious that are similar in tags and then post them in a single post. I hope is possible.

  51. Hi Andreeib,
    There is this kind of feature in Delicious Blog posting, that publish a daily post with new entries in Delicious.

    Could you give me more details of what you want? I will see if it’s possible.

  52. Hi, Thank you for the plugin I will use it for shure. But I am wondering if is possible to create posts from the Delicius links. Can I modify the plugin to do this, or are you considering making this kind of functionality yourself. Than’s.

  53. Hi Aston,
    Not good …
    Last try:
    – Stop synchronization,
    – With a FTP client, could you check if the directory wp-content/plugins/eg-delicious/tmp is empty.
    – if the directory is not empty, delete all files.
    – Retry a synchronization

    Could you send me the list of your plugins?
    Do you use a cache (wp super cache or other)?

  54. Salut Emmanuel, I did a clean upgrade (uninstall/new install), but I still have the same problems 🙁
    No sync at all, in no way. What a pity!
    At this point I don’t know what to think, maybe a plugin conflict? Is it possible?
    For now I deactivated it, but I’m still subscribed to your news, hope dies last!
    Cheers

  55. Hi Antonio,
    The version published this week can be used with WMPU. I performed some tests with WPMU 2.7 and 2.8, and all seem ok.
    Perhaps it works also with 2.6.

  56. Hi Aston,

    I published a new version yesterday, perhaps it will solve some of your issues,

    About synchronization page: when you start a synchronization, the plugin

    Collect all links in the blogroll,
    Collect all links of Delicious,
    Build a table, trying to match the blogroll and Delicious links, and to define action
    Display this table

    So, in this table, you will see all your links, but if you click on “Update button”, only links with a defined action, and with a selected category will be treated.

  57. Salut Emmanuel, I’ve tried your suggestion, but I couldn’t go ahead due to some errors.
    Going on the second page of links for sync gives me a blank page with no other bookmarks, so I tried different solutions.
    1. I clicked ‘Update changes’ on the first page. Result massage: No sync to do, because everything is yet synchronized;
    2. I tried to display more than 25 links per page.
    Result message: Warning: array_chunk() expects parameter 1 to be array, null given in /home/nickknet/public_html/brainstorm/wp-content/plugins/eg-delicious-sync/eg-delicious-admin.inc.php on line 1138;

    I’m running wp 2.8.3. Could it be a compatibility issue?
    My last question. In every attempt to sync, I always had to face with the links not present in delicious, like the blogroll ones, setting them to be not canceled. Is it supposed to works so?

    Merci encore

  58. Hi,

    I am currently working on the WPMU compatibility. I have two issues to solve:
    – Cache management,
    – Backup files management

  59. Wonderful plugin!

    I’d like to use it on WPMU, are you plain to develop its compatibilty in the future?

    Many thanks 🙂
    Antonio

  60. Hi,
    For bookmarks synchronization: you can use options to set the default behavior of synchronization engine. Choose a WordPress category for each Delicious tag or bundle you want to synchronize, and leave blanck the others. To be synchronized, a bookmark must follow two conditions:
    – An action must be selected (Add, Delete …)
    – The bookmark must have a least one category selected
    So, in our case, only bookmarks belonging to tags/bundles you select in the options page, will be synchronized.

    Is this answer convenient for you?

  61. Hi, a fantastic plugin! Is there any chance to import/manage only certain tag or bundle from delicious? I have a blog about architecture and I would like to import only the related bookmarks.
    Merci
    Merci

  62. Hi Jason,
    I modified the plugin, and published the new version. Will appear soon in the WordPress directory.

  63. great plugin, however I am getting an odd error message… any ideas on how to fix this?

    Warning: Call-time pass-by-reference has been deprecated in /home/content/j/t/b/jtbgunplugged/html/wp-content/plugins/eg-delicious-sync/eg-delicious-admin.inc.php on line 2070

  64. Ignore that last comment – you can see which ones have been added by the action field…

  65. Ah yes – I just use tags. I added a bundle, and the options appeared, thank you. It’s nearly there – but I have one more question, once you do on sync and then do another, there is no way to see which ones you have done before. Maybe the checkboxes should be ticked with the category that is currently set?

  66. Pershaps I understand the problem: I think you don’t use bundles in Delicious, and the default of the plugin is to synchronize bundles with WP categories.
    With the current version, if I can’t get bundles, I don’t display the options.

    There are a lot of changes to operate. I will try to publish a new version this evening (CET timezone).

  67. I identified the bug for the warning message.
    But I still don’t understand why you don’t see the full option form.
    Could you give me your configuration: PHP version, WP version.

    On Delicious, do you have bundles? or just tags?

    Thanks.

  68. Merci! But now I get « Warning: array_keys() [function.array-keys]: The first argument should be an array in /home/chris/public_html/notomato.com.au/public/wp-content/plugins/eg-delicious-sync/eg-delicious-admin.inc.php on line 183 ». I can’t see anything obvious but I haven’t gone over the whole file…

  69. Hello – I can’t seem to get the form to display when you click save settings. If I set the debug option on, it says « cache file xxxx » but it would appear the cache file is not created. I have set open permissions on the tmp folder, and also created an empty cache file with the correct name. I am a bit stuck! Do you have any ideas what it could be?

    Chris.
