Modify SmugWP plugin to allow adding whole galleries from desktop blogging client.
SmugWP is a WordPress plugin by Michael Mulligan which is used to display images hosted on SmugMug in posts or pages on your blog using the posts page in WordPress.
I blog mainly using a blog client on my computer (Windows Live Writer is the current flavour of the month) and I would like the plugin extended so that I can select a complete album from my SmugMug account in one simple command with the option of including the original captions from the SmugMug site. There is another WordPress plugin called photo sidebar widget which already displays the captions from SmugMug.
The plugin needs to look for code in a post from Windows Live Writer (or other desktop blogging client) and support and confirm both the Gallery ID and the Key (the entire NNNNNNN_XXXXX string).
The plugin's online interface on the write post page would also need to be modified to include selecting an entire album (with optional captions) at once when using the "Add Media" button.
It needs to be able to this without affecting the original functionality of the plugin.
The plugin, once completed, will be made available free to any WordPress users who wish to use it.
The developer who is selected for this job should coordinate with Michael Mulligan to ensure that he is not planning any changes to the plugin that will affect the extensions.
Only people experienced with WordPress or expert PHP coders are encouraged to apply.
