Cannot see existing posts after installing Live Writer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using Live Writer 14.0.8064.206 however this has happened in any version.  I go to install Live Writer on a new OS, point it to my blog.  All is good.  Except I can't get to my blog posts until after I post 3 new post! Because if I don't, I see nothing on the right for Recently Posted thus there's no way to get to the Show all Posts option.

    We should be able to get to all our posts without having to create 4 posts in Live Writer on initial install for an existing blog.  Either I'm totally missing something or this is a HUG usability flaw.  You'd think MS QA would catch this type of issue.

  • Hi, if you press Open (or Ctrl+O), then select your blog from the list on the left, Live Writer will let you select a post that has already been published to your blog.

  • Why should we have to figure out some weird way to do this?  I mean nobody is going to think of that shortcut.  MS needs to automatically have this functionality in there.  That's ridiculous.
