Thru Borderland’s Google Reader feed I discovered WriteToMyBlog It looks cool, and I’m all for web-based applications. Only one problem – I can’t for the life of me get it to work! I always get an error message when I click “Manage posts” or “publish”. Can’t be bothered to write for help.
Update: I take that back. I’ve finally managed to get something posted, after going around and around in some kind of Kafkaesque loop. Plus, for some reason all the <> and () and similar characters were all screwed up which took 5 minutes of just editing. Not sure it’s worth it.
I just added this post: after writing in the edit window, I click “publish”. A new window opens with the editing window still open. The new window is the main WriteToMyBlog window, which shows me which ID I’m logged in under. There’s a bunch of options and buttons, fortunately including the one I want: PUBLISH (why are all the others there? I just GOT here from clicking the PUBLISH button, so take me straight there already). Then I get another funny window which lists the blogs listed under my login ID. I click the one I want and hit PUBLISH NOW. Am I published yet? The editing window is STILL open. Weird.
Now, how do I create a NEW post?
Can’t get Ecto’s trial version to work, either. Oh screw it.
Zoho looks interesting (via the Fischbowl ). I think I’ll drop all this grading and go and explore! On the other hand, maybe later.
