Unlike other plugins, which display your bookmarks as a sidebar element,
del.icio.us-to-WordPress[WordPre.cio.us](/projects/) actually imports them as entries in your blog, so you can have some [Kottke-style](http://www.kottke.org) inline [remaindered links](http://www.kottke.org/remainder/).
It relies on [MagpieRSS](http://magpierss.sourceforge.net/) to parse any of your [del.icio.us](http://del.icio.us) RSS feeds, which means you can control what bookmarks get imported (some of the other plugins just yank in **all** your bookmarks). I, for example, only pull in entries tagged with [blogmarks](http://del.icio.us/cmheisel/blogmarks).
The motivation behind this script was two-fold:
1. I liked [Kottke’s](http://www.kottke.org) way of presenting links, and I couldn’t find anything like that for [WordPress](http://www.wordpress.org).
2. I thought it silly to have to post a [blogmark](/blog/category/blogmarks) in both WordPress and in [del.icio.us](http://del.icio.us).
The plugin creates a sane entry body out of each of your bookmarks/entries, plus it also attaches a blogmark_url and blogmark_description custom field to each post, so you can do all sorts of groovy things with your data.
The script both inserts, and updates bookmarks from your [del.icio.us](http://del.icio.us) RSS feed, so [del.icio.us](http://del.icio.us) essentially becomes my [blogmark](/blog/category/blogmarks) posting interface, which I think is cool.
The script is still in beta, seeing as I’m the only one using it at the moment, so please send any feedback or troubles you might have to **del2wp** at **heisel** dot **org**.
So, without further ado, I give you
I’m all for a much cooler name, send suggestions to the same e-mail address or add it in a comment. Thanks to [Michael Caldwell](http://www.justcaldwell.com/) for this project’s name: [WordPre.cio.us](/projects/).
**Update:** I fixed the broken download link on the [projects page](/projects/).
**Update again:** The script is only for WordPress 1.5.
**One more time:** I just added a zip version of the script, for those without tar.gz capability.
**Why not again:** [I’m looking for some help from folks experiencing the time-shift problem with their blogmarks…](http://heisel.org/blog/2005/03/14/fixing-wordprecious/)
