Recommending a blog posting 

If you have not already recommended a blog posting, you can do so by sending a request to the web address of the recommendations collection for the blog posting.

See Authenticating requests for information about how to authenticate the request.

To recommend a blog entry...

  1. You can only recommend an entry once. To find out whether you have already recommended an entry, retrieve a list of the people who have recommended the entry and see if your name is included. See Getting a list of recommenders for more details. Alternatively...

    1. Retrieve an entries feed that contains the entry. See Getting a feed of the latest posts added to all blogs or Getting a feed of recent posts for a blog for more information.

    2. Find the Recommendations collection element for the entry, and then look for a <app:accept/> element. If this element is present, you have already recommended this entry and cannot do so again. If no <app:accept/> is present, you have not recommended the entry yet. For example, the Recommendations collection for an entry that you have not recommended would look as follows:

        <app:collection 
         href="https://enterprise.example.com:9444/blogs/amyblog/api/recommend/entries/
         1fa2dae3-f0af-457c-bfe7-eec0f5f01833?lang=en_us"> 
          <title type="text">Recommendations</title> 
          <category 
           scheme="http://www.ibm.com/xmlns/prod/sn/collection" 
           term="recommend" /> 
          <app:categories fixed="yes" /> 
        </app:collection> 

  2. To recommend the entry, send an empty POST request to the web address listed as the href of the app:collection.
