Testing HelloTxt! (WordPress Plugin)

What is HelloTxt?

With HelloTxt you can post your status once and have it appear automatically on all of your networks, allowing you to keep all of your friends up to date with ease. It also lets you read your friends’ updates from main microblogging and social networks all at once.

My Test

2) Download WordPress plugin from [http://hellotxt.com/app/wp-plugin/hellotxt.zip]

3) Upload `hellotxtpost.php` to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory (using any ftptool)

4) Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

5) Go-to HelloTxt Settings Page and click Tools and API

6) Copy the value of user_key from step 5

7) Open Admin screen of wordpress blog and goto Plugin Editor and copy the value of user_key (step 6) [check in a function named function send_to_hellotxt($post_ID) in the plugin file]

8) Your plugin should work now [Atleast mine works ;-)]
