I downloaded IE8 today and noticed it had a new way to post to Microsoft’s blog by highlighting some text and sending it off to their blogging service.

Here is the code that will make it work in Typepad:

<openServiceDescription xmlns=”http://www.microsoft.com/schemas/openservicedescription/1.0“>

http://www.typepad.com/t/app Blog in Typepad http://www.tschopp.net/favicon.ico Post this in my Blog

<activity category=”Blog”>

<activityAction context=”selection”>

<execute method=”get” action=”http://www.typepad.com/t/app/weblog/post“>

<parameter name=”title” value=”{documentTitle}” />

<parameter name=”SourceURL” value=”{documentUrl}” />

<parameter name=”blog_id” value=”16627″ />

<parameter name=”text” value=”{selection}” />

<parameter name=”keywords” value=”{keywords}” />

</execute>

</activityAction>

<activityAction context=”document”>

<execute method=”get” action=”http://www.typepad.com/t/app/weblog/post“>

<parameter name=”title” value=”{documentTitle}” />

<parameter name=”blog_id” value=”16627″ />

<parameter name=”SourceURL” value=”{documentUrl}” />

</execute>

</activityAction>

<activityAction context=”link”>

<execute method=”get” action=”http://www.typepad.com/t/app/weblog/post“>

<parameter name=”title” value=”{linkTitle}” />

<parameter name=”blog_id” value=”16627″ />

<parameter name=”SourceURL” value=”{link}” />

</execute>

</activityAction>

</activity>

</openServiceDescription>

 

  1. Copy and paste this into a Text file.
  2. Name it typepad.xml
  3. Replace blog_Id with your blog ID

  4. Browse to http://www.typepad.com/t/app
  5. Click on the blog you want to post to
  6. Observe the URL http://www.typepad.com/t/app/weblog/manage?blog_id=16627

 

  • Replace the with your favicon
  • Save the document
  • Upload file to your Typepad account
  • Create a new HTML file
  • Name it typepad.html
  • Put the following code in the html file:<A href=”javascript:window.external.addService(‘http://www.tschopp.net/typepad.xml’);”>Click Here</a>
  • Replace my URL with the URL to the XML file you created above
  • Save file
  • Upload File to Typepad
  • Browse to HTML file
  • Click on link

Let me know how it goes. I will post updates later this week to get more than just selections working. I also want to expand this to other services. Let me know how this is working for you.
