I modified the motion theme running at my site, and added a form on the homepage that allows me to publish a post in the "asides" category without having to visit my dashboard.. it's really useful to me since I can use it almost like I do with facebook or twitter and sort of update my status...
What I wanted to add, was a bit more of enhancement, I wanted to be able to update my facebook and twitter status using the content of my "asides" blog posts...
The form I've written makes use of the wp_insert_post() function.
So what I'm asking is, is there a way to send the content of my post to facebook and twitter?? I'd prefer not to use a plugin, I like the fact that my theme works as some kind of big plugin which adds extra functionalities to my blog, so I'd love to code it on my own... What I don't know is how services like facebook and twitter works... can you give me some directions on where to start??
I posted here since this isn't really a theme related issue, I hope I'm in the right place ;)
Thank you in advance and I wish you all the best for the holiday season and the upcoming new year!!
