    It is certainly possible ….. have you set up regular moblogging yet ?

    I have a text america account that I send my pics to, and then I pull the latest image to my site and put it in the sidebar.

    sorry, all this is a bit new to me, are you saying i set up an account on a moblog website, the pull the images off their on to my website?

    Something like that. Flickr will let you do that:

    1) Take picture
    2) Email from phone to the address Flickr gives you. That will put the pictures into your Flickr account.
    2) Email to the second address Flickr will give you. Picture goes direct to your blog. The layout of text can be a bit messy, but for getting pictures online direct from your phone, it’s not bad.

    Other photo services quite possibly do something similar – Flickr just happens to be one I know does work with WordPress.

    As far as the layout being messy, simply “parsing and posting” can customize any auto-flickr post in wordpress regardless of how Flickr sets it up.
    I posted the code to my custom sidebar for Flickr images here:

    And also for tweaking the main page I put this in my THE_LOOP:

    //dynamically edit flickr's posting
    $pee = get_the_content($more_link_text, $stripteaser, $more_file);
    $pee = str_replace('src="http://phot', 'style="float:right; border: 2px solid #3C5B95;" src="http://phot', $pee);
    $pee = preg_replace("|<a href=\"http://www.flic(.+?)\">|", "", $pee);
    $pee = preg_replace("|alt=(.+?)\"|", "", $pee);

    echo $pee;

    That does 3 things:
    1) strips the hyperlink to flickr’s site from the image
    2) places the image on the right of the post
    3) removes the “alt” text for it

    Of course you can customize this all you want… preg_replace is awesome to play with

    Sorry em158, where do i put the above code?

    Thanks I would also like to know that.



    Check this moblog plugin for wordpress.
    fMoblog does a great job for magically transferring photos to Flickr or whichever system your prefer.
