Can I decide per post if I want to autopost it?

Yes. Since version 1.1 you see a settings box in every post.

Does the plugin send you my login data?

The plugin never transmits any data to me, or anyone else than the mastodon node you set in the settings!

Pratique, fonctionnel, génial ! J'ai fait la traduction Française mais j'attends toujours la validation par les editeurs FR de Réponds au besoin!

I have started to use with WordPress 4.9.8. This plug-in is easy to install, easy to configure and easy to use. Many thanks for your efforts.

You can't ask for an easier setup or operation. The only feature I wish it had is support for multiple instances. With the number of new users heading to Mastodon from that other site, this is will be a well-used plugin.

Is posting up to Mastodon multiple times and, even though, I have the option not to publish updates, it is doing so (albeit only for posts). No support in the forum and links within the plugin settings are broken, so I'm guessing this is now abandoned. A shame.
