It’s been a long time coming I know, but the update is finally here — the Socialize Me! Plugin for WordPress is now officially at version 1.0 and supports WordPress 2.6.x

Installation instructions

For complete installation instructions, please visit the original Social Me! launch page.

To upgrade your current version of the Socialize Me! Plugin:

  1. Download the Plugin
  2. Decompress the ZIP archive
  3. Using an FTP client, upload and replace the old copy

All of your previous settings will be safe, so don’t worry about losing anything.

The new supported websites include:

  • Identi.caIdenti.ca
  • Bright KiteBright Kite
  • VimeoVimeo
  • iLikeiLike
  • VoxVox
  • WinkWink
  • UstreamUstream
  • AOL PicturesAOL Pictures
  • NowPublicNowPublic
  • RejawRejaw
  • MultiplyMultiply
  • XangaXanga
  • ImageShackImageShack
  • DiigoDiigo

I’ve also made some mechanical changes to how Socialize Me! works, but unless you’re planning on making any changes to the code yourself, I wouldn’t even bother remembering what I just said!

For those with suggestions for other websites, or if you’re looking for a little help getting my Plugin to work on your WordPress blog, pay a visit to the Socialize Me! Page on Facebook.

Compatible websites

It’s worth noting that not all websites can be supported. Because of the spurious ways some of the websites create profile URLs, it’s simply not possible to tease out the username, which is essential for Socialize Me! to do its magic.

As an example, Photo Bucket inserts what appears to be a random dollop of numbers and letters into the URL, which may mean something to the guys at Photo Bucket, but for the purposes of the Socialize Me! Plugin, I really don’t want to be sat here programming around every capricious coding convention.
