WP PingFM to post


Inspired by the most excellent by Custom URL plugin by Matt Jacob. This is a much cruder, much simpler plugin that does something vaguely similar.

Support Questions

As per the FAQ. Read the code, if it doesn’t make sense, use Matt’s plugin instead.


Install through the regular method. If you’re not familiar with installing WordPress plugins I suggest you use Matt’s excellent plugin, it’s much more user friendly. 🙂

After install, go to wp-admin/options.php and set these options:
* pingfm_default_category
* pingfm_status_category
* pingfm_microblog_category
* pingfm_blog_category
* pingfm_author

They should all be single ids. Either category ids or user ids. Just the number, nothing else, easy.

Then head over to, setup your custom url as your blog homepage and add this to the end:

Replace XXX with the value of the pingfm_token option. You can change this if you like.

You can also specify the author in the custom url like so:

Replace 1 with the id of whichever user you want to be the author.

Set the option pingfm_twitter_links to 0 if you do not want #hashtags and @replies to link to


New plugin, so no questions have yet been asked. 🙂

If you have a question, please read the code. If you don’t find the answer in there, try Matt’s plugin instead. It’s much easier, much more user friendly.
