I noticed there is support for posting to Twitter. How about identi.ca? I guess that is not hard to add. Would be nice to have.

I added oauth signin using Identi.ca account in askbot. Please review the patch at https://github.com/rtnpro/askbot-devel/commit/fa4c3bfe557b18abb5622370daf541aa3c39abee

Very nice, could you add the identi.ca png as well? I assume you have an identi.ca account and you have tested this... Will merge this very soon. Please don't forget to add the image. Thank you! Evgeny ( 2011-07-28 16:12:35 -0500 )edit

hey @rtnpro. Glad to see you managed to get this done. I hope you do add support for posting to identi.ca too. Ping me on IRC and let me know when you want suggestions on what to target next. I have a assorted set of small features! mether ( 2011-07-28 23:39:52 -0500 )edit
Hi @Evgeny. I added the identi.ca image. You can see the updated patch at https://github.com/rtnpro/askbot-devel/commit/f0cf7e63ad0f2d635dd26e63b85f35abe8d32957rtnpro ( 2011-07-30 08:36:29 -0500 )edit
@rtnpro, I have updated the Fedora test instance to 0.7.9 which includes the patches you have written. I haven't tested that specific feature yet and will do so when I get time. For sharing a link via identi.ca, you should probably add support for just using basic auth and use ur1.ca as the url shortener. mether ( 2011-07-31 10:43:04 -0500 )edit

There's currently 478759 registered users on Identi.ca, but Identi.ca is a part of a federated network of StatusNet sites with a larger user base in aggregate.

It would be better if something like django's @loginrequired be added to identi.ca rather than showing a page with "Not logged in" rtnpro ( 2011-08-04 04:15:29 -0500 )edit

@mether,@Evgeny: I added tooltips for identi.ca and linkedin share buttons. https://github.com/rtnpro/askbot-devel/commit/91e6b6fbbcf522d5c7f5e18d57e0d571c85a675e

I also added a feature to use tinyurls during sharing question links in other social networking websites. https://github.com/rtnpro/askbot-devel/commit/b8182ebf5374b7470a7d8d6ec0b5c9274df60c81

How many users are on identi.ca? Is it known?

There is a way to add a login method now via a custom login module so it should be addable, will document in a few days.

Popular among open source fans certainly. I use identi.ca but repost to twitter. Fedora uses it officially and does the same thing. To be clear, other than identi.ca as a login method, I want to be able to post to it similar to the twitter option (5th icon, left to the to the question here). mether ( 2011-06-27 04:55:39 -0500 )edit
Is this documented now? I have someone interested in adding support and could use the documentation mether ( 2011-07-16 22:40:47 -0500 )edit
No it isn't. If someone would like to do this - would be great. Please make a fork on github and I will merge. Thanks. Evgeny ( 2011-07-16 22:48:34 -0500 )edit

Some bugs with identi.ca... rather with statusnet. It doesn't have an implementation similar to django's @loginrequired decorator.The result is that if someone tries to access a page for a logged in user, identi.ca shows an error page saying "Not logged in!". This is not a nice behaviour. What it should do is redirect the user to the login page, and after successful login, redirect the user to the page he requested.

Is this a bug in askbot? Could you clarify, please? Thanks. Evgeny ( 2011-08-02 08:32:20 -0500 )edit
It is with identi.ca rtnpro ( 2011-08-04 04:13:39 -0500 )edit
@rtnpro have you looked at how shapado.com handles this? they simply pass the question as a url to identi.ca https://identi.ca/notice/new?status_textarea= question? http://link to question. This is really trivial to implement. As a improvement, I would suggest using a url shortener like ur1.ca instead of the full link. That's all really. Logo can be same as what they are using. mether ( 2011-08-04 20:06:13 -0500 )edit
@rtnpro, any updates? mether ( 2011-08-09 14:48:13 -0500 )edit

@rtnpro This feature isn't working as expected. It shares only the title and not the actual question at all. Also while sharing the question, you might want to shorten it using ur1.ca. Take a look at

Unfortunately it does not seem to work @rtnpro, could you pls test it out? Also - is there an example of some page where identi.ca sharing works as expected, it is probably easier to just copy a snippet of working code, basically what is needed is format of sharing url.

Evgeny ( 2011-08-29 00:29:10 -0500 )edit

shapado.com has a working implementation

mether ( 2011-08-29 01:33:33 -0500 )edit

I'm sorry it was actually working fine, what confused me is use of question mark in the url without percent encoding, I've fixed that issue.

Evgeny ( 2011-08-29 08:36:42 -0500 )edit

@Evgeny can we get tooltips for linkedin and identi.ca ?
