Tag Support for the Onlywire Autosubmit Plugin

This will be the first time I ventured into editing a plugin. It is hard to find information on tag support for Wordpress 2.3. This post will tell me if I found everything I needed to make this plugin work a little better. The original onlywire autosubmit plugin can be found here.

After using it a few times and then checking my delicious account, I realized the tagging functioning of this plugin didn't work. Then I opened up the plugin and it didn't even add tags. It just bookmarked your post without any tags to identify it. So I did some research and think I added the correct lines of code.

First I have to work around the exec-php plugin to post the code here. I fit in it as good as I could.

Wait until I update this post to see if it worked.

I am not yet sure if this works or not. Onlywire gave me this message:

Error - You have already submitted 6 items today. Due to spammers misusing the system you are not allowed to submit more than 5 per day. Your counter will reset at midnight Pacific Standard Time. If you have a legitmate use for submitting more items per day you can request to have this limit increased, send an email to info@onlywire.com and justify your reason for increasing this limit. Thank you for your understanding.

Even though this is the second bookmark I made today.
