If I recall correctly, last time I tested Windows Live Writer, it totally didn’t work. No title came through, and the post was dated 1/1/1970 or some such strangeness. Let’s see if it works this time.
Wowsers! It works perfectly. I wonder if editing will work? Yup, no problems there, and now for the piece of resistance, an image!
My god, that really is quite stunning. The image is thumbnailed with a sexy drop-shadow, aligned, and linked to the original with ZERO input from myself. Even the upload worked seamlessly. I haven’t made any ftp settings whatsoever, so I presume it’s using the XML-RPC calls to upload the images.
The other thing you’re not seeing is that Live Writer has detected my css templates, and is using them to format the post as I assemble it, so I can get a reasonable view of what the post will look like in its final form. There’s even a preview option that shows the post in the entire website, and a raw HTML view.
