Testing Frank's Technorati Tag Live Writer Plugin
UPDATE (09/19/06): Frank updated his plugin, and addressed two of my three issues. As for the third, let me quote Frank:
The first time I went to enter "Richmond, VA" into the text box; I realized that using comma's as a field delimiter has certain drawbacks.
Hence, I made semi-colon the delimiter.
I guess that's fair - I'll deal with it.
Frank La Vigne, one of my new coworkers at AIS wrote a Live Writer plugin that allows you to tag your posts with Technorati tags. So naturally I decided to try it out. Below are some comments:
- It works (as is evident by this post.)
- It's convenient, with a simple pop-up available form both the Insert menu and the Insert action pane group
- Easy to install, just download, and extract into the plugin folder
- You have to enter the tags separated with a semicolon. Why semicolon? I can understand not using space (though I'm used to that from del.icio.us), but why not comma?
There's no icon for the menu item The Ugly: The dialogs title says Insert Hello World. Uhm - how about Insert Tags?
All in all a good job
, just in need of some simple polishing.
