NOTE: releases will be happening fast and furious over the coming weeks. To be notified of new versions of this plugin, here is the RSS feed:
The Remote OPML Enabler (ROPE) allows Wordpress bloggers to edit and host their Blogrolls and other OPML assets on a remote server or desktop.
Version .4 - You must now also be an Admin. Still working on a non-essential bug revealed in .3 , trying to record the link_owner correctly.
Version .3 - Uhh… Please go to .4
Version .2 - You must now be sending legit Wordpress credentials. There must be a Wordpress user with the same credentials as thos stored in the OPML editor. Added some better error handling too.
Version .1 - Basic functionality for the opmlCommunityServer.saveFile XML-RPC call, allows the user to edit their Blogroll in Dave Winer’s OPML editor or other environment that will call this method to sync the new Blogroll version with the Wordpress Blogroll.
1. Download the archive at the link below, unzip it and place the ROPE.php file in your in your wp-content/plugins directory
2. OPML Editor user’s must go into their dotOpmlData.root database and change the XML-RPC URL to point to your Wordpress blog’s xmlrpc.php file instead of /RPC2 on the community server.
3. Your OPML editor username and password must be equivalent to a Wordpress User username and password.
4.Wordpress ships with a default link category call Blogroll. This plugin assumes this is the category you are using for your Blogroll and will replace it with the new Blogroll. Changing the name of this category will not adversely affect this plugin from working, but you must use this category (it has and ID of ‘1′ on your category Link Category management page) is necessary.
