Per user default category / XMLRPC "new post" hook (5 posts)

    I'm currently trying to integrate Flickr with my blog. The problem is that Flickr currently doesn't support categories, so every post lands in the default category, which isn't what I want.

    I see two options here:
    1) Add a "per user" default category. Since Flickr has it's own login for my blog that would easily solve the problem.
    2) Hook into the XMLRPC call that creates a new post and set the category there. (I haven't found out how to do that; The result would be the same, thoug a bit more difficult: Check the user name, apply a new category.)

    Can both be implemented?

    Bets regards,

    Just to note, I have suggested to folks at Flickr that they pass the tags on an image to blogs posts. Don't know if it ever happen, but I've at least suggested it :-)

    Hi there. I am giving that feature a +1. I'm having the same issue with flickr. I think a default category feature would serve the purpose best. Could be edited in the User Preferences, where I also searched for it a lot. Is this one already in the bug tracker?

    For now Role Scoper can handle that, given that you’ve set up a special user for your Flickr “blog this” service.
