This is a post sent from beta version 1.0.1(6). Get a free copy here. Download is a 3.58Mb msi file.
Installation and detection of this blog was a breeze if you have your blog installed on root domain. I have to manually enter blog url since this blog is installed on a subdomain.
This works like a word processor and interface is clean and easy to use. Features are pretty full considering this is only a beta, you have
- Date/time editing using a calendar
- Comments open/close
- Trackback allow/deny
- Categories selection (can't find add new category?)
- Tag insertion
- Download all your published posts (all, I doubted as there are over 800 here?)
- Automatic save drafts
- View in normal, web layout, web preview and HTML
- Like Word you have automatic spell check before publishing and even autocorrect
- Preview in broswer mode and updating of style such that preview is accurate
Best of all, which makes blogging straight from Word 2007 useless, is that you could view/edit HTML code.
If you are a developer you could write plugin to make this better, e.g. a good plugin now available is flickr4writer.
