Following my previous post in which I discussed the great opportunity to interlink blogs and mobile text messaging I have now implemented a very basic solution on this blog.
Setup: I used a Enfora SA GSM Modem and along with SQL2GSM Software was able to implement a simple forwarding rule, which, when a Text Message is recieved with a prefix of “blog”, will interact with my WordPress Database to add a blog comment.
How to Comment: Blog readers can send a text to +447913694107 starting with the word “blog” followed by the blog post ID (end number of post url), a colon and then the comment message, for example:
“blog 126:Hello World”
The text message above will post a comment to this blog (entry 126). You will then shortly receive a “Thank you for your comment.” reply and your text message will appear in the blog comments.
It is still in very basic testing stage at the moment but please feel free to give it a whirl, I would love to read your comments both via mobile text messages or by commenting the standard way below.
