And today I got it working with WordPress. More testing needed, and I need to tidy it up a bit.
It felt really good to see the top post appear here. Not _quite_ as good as defeating Ormstein and Smough***, but still, pretty damn good.
This is, of course, why I code. For the rush.
*Because the current one does, and I don't want to launch a replacement that doesn't do all of the things the current one does, only better. The current one, if WordPress times out - but has posted - tries again repeatedly, possibly leaving multiple reposts. This one simply marks the post as failed, and leaves it up to the user to hit the "repost" button.
**Because that was why I started this in the first place, about 25 years ago.
***John got that one.
