Other apps now have another option for sending content to Blogsy. For quite sometime Blogsy has been using the following URL scheme – blogsy:”URL” – which allows other apps to send a website to Blogsy and Blogsy will open that website in its built-in browser. This is what is used if you set up the Blogsy Bookmarklet (find this in the Settings menu in Blogsy). Also, the Mr. Reader app uses this URL scheme so you can send blog posts to Blogsy.

Now we have added a new URL scheme – blogsy://post?entry=”post body” – which if other apps use it will allow you to send information from the other app directly into Blogsy and it will start a new post and put that information into the new post.
Here is an example of this.
Notice that there is content with no HTML tags along with some content with HTML tags. You can send content to Blogsy that has HTML tags or not. (We made this dummy program to test the URL scheme.)
When you send it to Blogsy you will get a message asking how you want to bring it into Blogsy.
Rich Side – This is what we are sure most people will choose in most cases. When you choose this option the content will be pulled in and parsed and if there is HTML in it then Blogsy will use that HTML. If there is no HTML then Blogsy will add the appropriate HTML.
HTML Side – We added this option because if the content you are importing has HTML in it that is not correct this can cause problems in Blogsy. If this is the case then you can choose the HTML Side option to open it on the HTML Side then fix the HTML before flipping to the Rich Side.
Markdown – If the content you are sending to Blogsy has Markdown in it then you need to choose the Markdown option. When you choose the Markdown option Blogsy will parse the Markdown and convert it to normal HTML so the dragging in of images and videos works. If you choose Rich Side or HTML Side then the Markdown will be wrapped in HTML tags and therefore will not work.
