Recently I discovered NewsGator 1.3 for reading weblogs. It’s a really great tool, because it integrates into Outlook. It offers the possibility to read weblog posts just like your email. You should definitely check it out.
What’s more, you can even use it to post to weblogs using the various plugins that are available. And there is one for dasBlog. Me posting this entry proves that it works (I hope).
For the heavy dasBlog users who didn’t use this just yet:
– install the plugin
– Go to Options from NewsGator menu and select the Posting tab. Select the dasBlog 126.96.36.199 plugin, click Configure and provide the URL and username+password.
– Back on the Postings tab I selected the option for “Remove font face and size tags” to keep the themes from dasBlog working.
– make sure that the Edit Web Service is running on dasBlog
– use Post to Weblog from the NewsGator menu.
