    Hi Telerik,

    I have a new feature request for Sitefinity, we just noticed a new functionality in Word 2010.
    There is a new word template called Blog Post, it will enable authors to publish blog articles directly to blog engines.

    Please see this link for blog engines that support this feature (the list includes Wordpress):
    http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/word-help/help-with-blogging-in-word-HA010164021.aspx?ver=14&app=winword.exe

    It would be great if Sitefinity could also be added as compatible provider.

    I have attached two screenshots related to this as well.

    Please credit me with points if my suggestion is accepted and original.

    Kind Regards,

    Amir Haghdani

    Hello Amir,

    Thanks for you suggestion.  We will consider it for possible implementation, but for now I cannot tell you whether we will include this in the official release of Sitefinity 4.0.  Your Telerik points have been updated.

    Best wishes,

    Great suggestion, please also include my vote for this feature. I am currently looking at the best way to create a blog post content using Microsoft Word, this feature would be very useful to me.

    Hello guys,

    This is great feature indeed. We already have something similar though - Live Writer support. Have you checked it already?

    I am also thinking on the following feature for the 4.0 version - http://www.cmswire.com/cms/web-cms/quark-releases-xml-author-40-for-microsoft-word-enhances-publishing-process-011577.php
    What do you think?

    Thanks for the reply Georgi,

    I have not seen anything about Live Writer suport anywhere on the blogs or in the documentation yet, do you have any links? I will download the software and try it out.

    The Xml Author looks interesting but it seems there is nowhere on the Quark site to purchase the product.

    Thanks

    Austin

    thanks again for the reply,

    I am trying to follow the instructions given at

    http://www.sitefinity.com/documentation/user-guide/creating-and-uploading-content/using-the-content-modules/creating-and-editing-blogs-and-blog-posts/create-and-edit-blog-posts-with-win-live-writer.aspx

    Windows live writer tells me that it was not able to automatically detect my blog settings.

    In the documentation it says:

    In Web address of your blog, enter the URL of the page, where your blog is published.


    What is the URL that I should be using?

    I have tried without success the following URLs:

    http://localhost:85/blog
    http://localhost:85/Sitefinity/Content/Blogs/BlogPosts/BlogName
    http://localhost:85/Sitefinity/Content/Blogs/BlogPosts/BlogName/?provider=OpenAccessDataProvider

    I appreciate any suggestions you may have.

    Best regards

    Austin

    Hi Austin ,

    In Live Writer you need to set the page on which you have BlogPostView control that shows your posts. Make sure that AllowBlogging is set to true. Can you send some screenshots that shows BlogPostView control configuration ? Do you set ti to show specific blog, you have some filtering etc?

    Kind regards,

    Whilst I was receiving the above mentioned errors, the blog posts control was set to display  content from all blogs. I have adjusted the setting to display from selected blogs only.

    I still found difficulty in getting things to work. I am unsure about what the correct URL settings should be, the documentation does not quite provide me with sufficient information for me to know how to set this up correctly.

    I have attempting to attach a PDF file with screenshots of what I have attempted so far, unfortunately, the attach file dialogue does not accept PDF documents, could I e-mail this document to you? I hope that this helps you work out where I am going wrong.

    Best wishes

    Austin

    Hi Austin ,

    I am not able to replicate this issue. Please take a look at attached short video that shows blogpostview settings and live writer settings.

    All the best,

    Awesome video Dimitri,

    That's the best support I've had from any company in a long time. I'll test things out a bit further here and see how I get on.

    Thanks

    I have just been testing this out once more but I still get the same error and therefore I cannot connect Windows live writer to my blog. The settings I am using seem to be the same as those which you are using, so I suppose this will remain a mystery!

    Although it would have been nice to get this feature working, I am currently thinking that I will produce my blog content using Dreamweaver.

    Thanks for your suggestions anyway.
