I'm planning on a plugin that allows publishing from a wordpress blog installed on the localhost too an online blog!
I want to use all the wordpress functions for proper validation etc So the localhost blog would connect to it's own database but I would need it to connect to the online one.
That is not the major issue or question.
Question is would this be worth doing within wordpress? I want to use as many functions as I can from the localhost blog for validating post data but then anything that uses $wpdb would need to be my own functions I think. I've sort of done it before but outside of wordpress on the localhost host and straight to the mysql table without using any wordpress functions.
In short, a hybrid script that only uses what I can from wordpress and code rest myself.
Should I just code the whole lot myself external to wordpress do you reckon?
Advice would be great and valuable so contact me on my website if you wish before giving it away.
