Selling out to Windows Live Writer? (oh the shame!) December 12, 2006Posted by NAyK in Blogging, Software, Windows, Wordpress.
So I have just tried using Windows Live Writer as an external editor for WordPress. It hasn’t been all smooth, but it has been better than some others I have tried; ecto and w.bloggar–they both have refused to connect to WordPress somehow.
Anyway, this is partly an experiment to see if this kind of thing works. I like the functionality of an external blog editor… though the idea of using a MS application for a pro-Linux site is sure grating, and I’m filled with guilt! (Of course I am also currently using (for the past week or so) Windows XP to talk about Linux… and that is perhaps most ironic (and terrible). But it highlights the schizophrenic nature of my work-environment at the moment!)
Is there an open-source editor somewhere, that will work for WordPress?
Still… rather than give in to my pangs of guilt, I’ll continue to experiment with this external editor and keep a look out for something that is ‘better’ in more ways than one.
Is there an open-source editor somewhere, that will work for wordpress? I couldn’t find it, but would be interested if it offers decent functionality.
