The OPML Editor prefs panel for S3 now has a place for you to enter the default bucket.
We initialize the name to three random state names concatenated. You can obviously edit it to be whatever you like.
When you click Submit, we try to create the bucket with the credentials you’ve entered. If it worked, you get a message saying so. If not, we display the error message that S3 returned.
Bucket names are like domain names, they must be unique across all of S3. So if I already have a bucket named “daveBucket” (I do) — then you are prevented from creating one.
Here’s a screen shot showing what the prefs panel looks like after creating a bucket.
As always, to get this update, launch the OPML Editor and choose Update opml.root from the File menu.
