I have been trying to migrate back to Ubuntu from XP.
WLW for Windows is definitely the best Blogging tool out there. But for Ubuntu or for the Linux world out there, no WLW-Wine implementation is available. Scribefire is a great effort by Performancing. It allows file/image upload,technorati/UTW tags, Live Previews, Pinging, and delicious bookmarking. Its more than Basic. I must say, this is the best cross-platform blog editor out there. If you want to see some examples, check out:-
I've used SF for a few months now and it's been one of the easiest and most useful tools I have. In fairness, I don't do a lot of style editing to the text. For me, this is a way of quickly posting a text blog without having to log in anywhere. On the other hand, if I had to edit the font and text styles each time I posted, I'd be suicidal. Your blog should format the font and text style the way you want it. If I'm going to add video etc, I'd probably go ahead and log in anyway, but for day to day "journal" syle blogging, this tool is thumbs up.
btw, I use Blogger and Livejournal with no problems.
please, add win-1251 coding sopport
I could not get it to work with my blogger account. If it can't make it easy to use one of the most basic blog hosts on the web, it isn't much of an extension really.
From the forums it's clear that this problem is quite pervasive; and what's more there doesn't appear to be any sort of helpful instruction anywhere, either official or unofficial.
It's probably just too new, but in any case, I can't give a good review to something that won't work.
How they got public, I don't know. What's the point? I don't see the point. My indentions!
ScribeFire Rocks -- Click a little icon on status bar, and up pops a window where you have control over posts for ALL of your blogs. Easily create, edit & delete posts, along with creating drafts. Upload pics/files via the built-in api, or ftp if you wish. The beauty of ScribeFire is that it remembers the text field, so you can close it out and resume writing your post later. Why log into wordpress when wp-admin is slow as a hog?
Yesterday I install scribefire add-on to firefox 126.96.36.199 on my linux system (ubuntu feisty).
It seems that the category did not fetched correctly.
My blog at wordpress have 4 categories, and it is correctly fetched in my windows system (XP Prof). In my linux system they fetch more than 30 categories, and none of them are mine.
Does any one have the same problem with me ?
Just as another reviewer noted I get the HTML code inserted after a sentence period when I double space. Then I have to go back and edit them out. Another disappointment is I haven't figured out how to copy/paste certain items into note. I get error msg when attempting upload, but I don't know what code to change from the error msg in the copy.
My only problem with the program is that I have been taught to double space after each sentence. When I do that, first space is ok, but I get the HTML code for a space after it ( ) and I have to go to my blog and edit the message. Fix that and I could give it a 10.
This extension saves me time. Oh yeah & frustration. My server is a little finicky, so instead of losing a post that I had spent a half an hour on, I can switch to the code & copy & paste it until my server is working a little better ;)
Anyways, I did notice it is hard to get the CLOSE button on this extension to work. Would be nice to press the close button & it would go away (on the first couple of tries anyway)
I have decided to wait until I find one that has better reviews. I can post directly to one of my sites when I'm there anyway. I can link to 'Blog This' to send a cut 'n' paste to blogger, or I can send it in an e-mail. Performancing will not post to newsvine, nor will it post to some other simple blogs. I have sites on MySite and FreeServer, both of which have blogs, neither of which can be posted to with Performancing. I don't see the point. Thanks anyway.
Back to the drawing board - this is crap. It accepted only two out of six blogs - all the rest returned obscure errors from Blogger when I tried to add them. The most annoying, apart from "unknown error" is "If you are embedding video, close embed tags" - it's a plain text blog for godsake. And yes, I did check out the blogs' logins directly on Blogger - they are all fine.
On one I could use with ScribeSquirm, the html tagging doesn't render but is printed in the blog, making a mess of it and requiring proper editing in the Blogger editor. So what's the point?
This add-on is being quickly demoted to add-off.
Everything looks great...until I really use it to create a blog post.
1. I cannot choose the font type.
2. It mess things up -- when I publish my post on blogspot, all the SOURCE EDITING CODES are published on the page! Horrendous! And my indentions are all gone.
I don't think I have done anything wrong, but the outcome scares me. Thinking of uninstalling it, cos not sure I dare to use it again.
This is one of the most useful blogging add-ons around. I have blogs with 3 different hosts, and the ability to post to all of them without having to visit the sites is a great timesaver.
To docwhat: you should see an icon that looks like a notepad on your status bar. You set up ScribeFire by clicking on that.
According to the policy, add-ons must be accurately described. The description is useless. I installed the software and it doesn't have a place to enter any blog urls or anything similar. It has no preferences via the Add-ons menu. It seems to have something to do with some website, but the website has no documentation on it. When you click on the help, it takes you to a page that says it's not ready yet.
How this got public, I don't know.
hope someday there'll be a feature of "edit with web layout" or "digital ink support" like those in Windows Live Writer.
