I don’t know how to do this.
What I want to do is use my own privately hosted installation of WordPress or Drupal as a social bookmarking service. That is, I want to:
- Find an interesting item on the web, say some news or a cool blog entry.
- Then I want to click a menu item and have a box pop up to let me save the title, URL, a comment, and some tags for the item.
- When I click “Save” or “OK,” my information should be saved (more on this in a bit).
- I should be able to have these items automatically posted to WordPress or Drupal.
For a long time I used delicious to do this but then I switched to Diigo when delicious’s blog posting became unreliable for some time. Occasionally this happens with Diigo, but less often.
My issues are:
- I don’t really need my saved bookmarks available to the whole world. I just want them so I can aggregate them and post them to my blog on either WordPress or Drupal.
- The tags used by delicious are not the categories or tags of WordPress or anything in a taxonomy in Drupal. My aggregate links should use the tags in my blogging system and not be something else belonging to the social bookmarking system.
- I would feel more comfortable if I could save these links, or social bookmarks, myself. I suppose I’m really talking about antisocial bookmarks.
So, to summarize, I want to use my native tags, store the bookmarks myself, and be able to set a schedule for when they are bunched together and published.
Pointers? (I know about Scuttle …)
