I learned a new thing today. I’m writing this post via “Windows Live Writer”, not by logging in to my wordpress account as I usually used to do. And I learned it accidentally. I was just looking the windows’ built in apps/tools and saw “Windows Live Writer” among many others. Thinking it as a publishing tool, like blogs, I just got intrigued and clicked it. And that was that. Am now posting it via the same tool.
At first it asks to configure your blog account to which you want to publish your posts. And after the blog address is configured, it just opens as a new Word document in the window (I don’t know about mobile devices). Then you can write in the similar way you do in a new Word document. Categories, tags, post date, author (if multi-authored), slug, excerpt etc. can be used too.
It’s not sooooo different than the generic style of publishing a post by logging in to your personal blog. But, it’s a new learning for me.
But, am not that good at describing things. You need to give a try yourself to know how it works.
Let’s see if plugins are required to display tables or not. I’ve inserted a table below here in Live Writer.
