post tags property in the current version of Pukka not working? I've been using a script for a while and now it will no longer post to from Pukka to Yojimbo with tags intact (the tags do make it to Delicious, so this is obviously an applescript issue).
tell application "Pukka"
set thisTags to post tags
set skip next reset to false
If I manually assign a tag to the
thisTags variable, it works. It only doesn't work when I use the
post tags property.
Hi Ryan. I've tested getting and setting post tags with Pukka 1.7.2 and it seems to be ok to me, including assigning the get to a variable called thisTags and outputting that.
Are you using the script exactly how it appears in that older blog post you referenced? Or is it tweaked at all?
Thanks for using the forums! ;-)
I just did some testing on the script (had to reset my Yojimbo trial, since I hadn't used it in a while) and saw the same results as you. The problem seems to be with Pukka's skip next reset property not being obeyed. So Pukka gets reset after the post and no longer has the tags, which originated in Pukka. The URL, title, and description come from the AppleScript itself, so they are preserved.
To tell you the truth, I did notice this behavior recently when working on Pukka's AppleScript support, but I thought it was limited to my current development. I will investigate this further and try to get to the bottom of it.
As a workaround, if you submit Pukka by hitting Option-Command-Return, the Option key will mark Pukka to not reset after the post. The only problem with that is that the script has a repeat loop that cycles until Pukka's window is gone, so you'll have to close it manually after you post, as the Option keeps the window fully loaded and ready to be used again.
Thanks for your patience.
