create blog post by email

Post by rube2112 » Sun Mar 21, 2021 2:21 am

Most blog platforms have a feature or plugin that will allow you to send an email to a secret email address that will automatically create a blog post. This is handy for people in remote locations. Is there any chance of getting something like this? Robb

Hi,

this would be possible with a plugin that monitors an email address (via IMAP). But: This is very unsecure, since you have no authentication whatsoever.
Just to make sure I understand it right: Why wouldn't I be able to log into the FP admin area when I am able to write an email?

All the best,
Arvid

plugin.remoteposting.php
Implements some methods to allow remote posting (using Windows Live Writer, Scribefire and such)

Look at Chrome extension ScribeFire
