If you made use of desktop computer blogging client software on your computer system, like Windows Live Writer, to blog on Google’s Blog writer or Blogspot.com, you’ll know that since April/May 2015, it quit functioning. This is because, in late April 2015 Google updated the authentication technique for logging in to Google companies. Many individuals had issues blogging on Blogger/ Blogspot after that. The good information: Microsoft kindly open sourced Windows Live Author, which ended up being Open Live Author, and also since 17 December 2015 you could make use of Open Live Author with Blogger or Blogspot blogs!

Likewise, keep in mind that Open Live Author is still a work in development, so it might take a while to obtain all functions back as they were -e.g. see a recap of some attributes, and also the roadmap. Likewise, as opposed to just what some other individuals have been claiming, you can keep your Windows Live Writer post( at the very least if they were on an outside hard drive), and also merely factor Open Real-time Writer to the area of your WLW folder!.?.!!
