  • Select the service that you want vCrossPost to use to cross-post to your other blogs.
  • Click OK and every time you publish a new post, your post will be transferred to Ping.fm to post to your other services.

Limitations:
  • vCrossPost doesn't filter services combo box of services that support blogging. This will be added in later release.


Where can the services be defined/Where can my other blogs be added to cross-post list?
How long will it takes to cross-post to my other blogs?
  • It depends on Ping.fm. All vCrossPost does is to transfer your post to Ping.fm to handle.

Update 02 May 2009:
  • I found that vCrossPost does not work with any other account Ping.fm account than mine. The API key has to be submitted for review before it can be used by other users. I've just submitted the key and hopefully the key will work soon. I'll update again once it's OK.

Update 11 May 2009:
  • Application key approved. Plugin is now working.
