    That’s awesome! Just so you know, in v2 I have exposed a way to get at categories (thru a current post property) so this could be even more automated. That would be slick.

    I’ve got a couple of bugs to iron out before v2 beta, but it should be ready to go before too long.

    Thanks for creating such a useful plugin!

    Hey, I was looking at the plugin directory after using this plugin and noticed that you are storing the history right in the plugin/install directory. This is okay if the user is running as admin (like me:) but if it’s just a regular user, there may be unexpected problems wrt permissions.

    A better idea (and one I use in PostXING) is to use a program-specific folder under the ApplicationData folder for storing read/write settings data. To get this user-specific folder, use Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.ApplicationData)

    So, for example, if you wanted to store the history file in the same folder that PostXING uses, you would create a method like so:

    public static string GetUserPath() {
    string s = Path.Combine(Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.ApplicationData), “PostXING”);
    if(!Directory.Exists(s)) Directory.CreateDirectory(s);

    return s;
    }

    If you wanted to store it in a folder called TechnoratiTagger (an approach that I have used for plugins before), you would replace the string “PostXING” with “TechnoratiTagger” or wherever you wanted the config file to sit.

    Other than that, this is a really awesome plugin. I appreciate you taking the time to write it. Thanks!
