5ubliminal Is My New Hero

While doing research for a report on autoblogging, and looking for a tool that would allow you to post to WordPress remotely, I (eventually) came across this blog by 5ubliminal.

It’s well worth signing up to as the owner has released some pretty cool plugins and you’ll only get them if you sign up due to his very nice pp:Morpheus plugin which I’ve just purchased.

If he had an affiliate scheme I’d join it. And if it was a WordPress plugin I’d buy it. ;)

And after purchasing the pp:Morpheus plugin I DEFINITELY want to buy his WordPress store plugin when he releases it, it’s just what I’ve been looking for to use on this site, although I guess I’d want a slight tweak to it. From my recent shopping experience there it allows you access to additional content by adding an access token to your subscriber account on a blog.

The tweak I’d want doing to it is to optionally (on a per-post basis) make some content available to all existing subscribers, but make new subscribers pay for it. Tie that in with an affiliate scheme and it would be bloody awesome. I don’t swear often so I think you can tell what I think about that idea.

If you decide not to look at 5ubliminal’s blog or even subscribe, then at least take 2 minutes of your time to read this and have a chuckle. 5ubliminal is my hero just for creating this page alone.

5ubliminal message: I would very much also like a WordPress plugin that allows me to gather subscribers and email them from within WordPress. It would need SMTP support so I could use a service that I like called AuthSMTP.com to ensure email deliverability. Actually I think a lot of people would like that. Thank you. :)

    haha haha!

    That was funny.

    Hey Frank, I had a desktop tool developed for posting to WordPress remotely. I haven’t done anything with it yet. I keep meaning to get it launched and up for sale. It’s pretty good, even at version 1, even though I say so myself.

    Want to take a look at it? Just let me know.

    I saw your post on Vendiva Community Forum regarding Caffeinated Content. I’ve heard one review say it churns out jibberish, so I would just like to hear from someone who is impatial, someone who has used it such as yourself and not someone who is trying to sell it.

    As I understand, it takes the content from Yahoo answers but makes it unique content (critical if it’s going to get a site anywhere in Google) any idea how this works? Any info you can supply prior to me taking the plunge and buying it would be grately appreciated

    Warmest regards

    Amin: Emailed you. A bit of a long one, sorry. I ended up in brain dump mode and couldn’t stop. ;)

    Clive: Yes I’ve used Caffeinated Content on a couple of sites and it works quite well. Although… There seems to be a bug in the component that pulls articles.

    As it pulls the articles and creates the blog post, it’s also supposed to create a record in a history file so that you don’t pull the same article the next time you run it. I’ve emailed both the support addresses but not received a reply on this yet, and there doesn’t seem to be a FAQ to cover this kind of issue.

    But for pulling questions and answers from Yahoo Answers, it *does* create the history correctly, and the same goes for YouTube videos and comments. I haven’t tried using it with files, but my guess is it will work okay.

    At the moment I’m looking at another very similar solution that seems to work well, so you might want to hang on a few days.

    I also have a little script of my own that will post articles from files you upload, and I’m writing a report on AutoBlogging to go with it. ;)

    5ubliminal says:
    “The difference between this and other Subscribe To Gain Access scripts mavens use on their sites is that this one actually validates the email address. 90% of the Subscribe For Access boxes on mavens’ sites give access regardless of the email address you enter. And that blows!”

    But the subscribe form on his homepage doesn’t validate nothing – you can submit a blank form!
