Blog Tagging Update

For a sort of index of my blog, check del.icio.us/pfhyperblog.

Unfortunately, the listing only goes back as far as October. I hope to get my other posts listed there soon. One problem is that I don’t have a direct method of listing in chronological order. There is a way to do it using the del.licio.us API (application programmers interface, used to control del.icio.us a bit) but as of now, it’s very tedious.

Geeky stuff ahead. Beware.

I’ve posted about adding tags to blog posts before but I wanted to provide an updated listing of tutorials since the old tagging system broke with the release of Firefox 1.5. Luckily, Johan at ecmanaut has provided a new (and better!) script.

  • Start here with John’s FreshBlog Greasemonkey method. Check on the left navigation area for other interesting Blogger hacks that you might want to try.
  • Most of the links you need will be off John’s page but here’s a direct link to Johan’s Greasemonkey script.
  • For further control of how the tags display on your blog, go here.

The new script works except for linking to del.icio.us directly after the blog posting. Something is wrong with the del.icio.us URL. I hope to have some time to try and fix it.

Of course I’ve complicated things now with the Performancing blog posting extension to Firefox. It’s meeting and exceeding all my expectations. Basically, you have an editing window at your fingertips on any page you’re visiting. You can hide it when you want. You can save a post as a note and then resurrect it. (It does not have a spell checker and I think I just misspelled ‘resurrect’.) But it doesn’t do del.icio.us tags; it does technorati tags.
