If you'd like, you may validate your unAPI service by entering a post URL -- any regular WP post URL will do -- over at http://validator.unapi.info/

What should I use for my identifier prefix?

An unAPI identifier is typically composed of a prefix and an integer, but may be any string. Since WordPress already identifies individual posts with a locally unique integer, we only need to tack on a prefix. The default should work for you, but you can feel free to change it. Some folks prefer OAI-interoperable identifiers such as "oai:domain.tld:blogname:". Others opt for simplicity, such as the default prefix, "unleash.it:". Still others use valid URLs, such as "http://domain.tld/blog/archive/". It really is up to you; democracy, ho!
