Windows live writer - no "enter post title here" displayed

    Question

  • Hey,

    I just downloaded WLW and after searching for hours, where I could enter a post title, I realized, that the field is simply not displayed.

    I re-installed, but still I can't see the field.

    I didn't install any plug-in nor did I do anything to interrupt the installation.

    So what is wrong? Any ideas?

  • Can you try turning your theme off and seeing if that makes a difference. To do that click on View > Edit using theme, making sure the tick is no longer there. If it then appears, it might be worth trying Brandon's Theme Fixer to see if that helps: http://blogs.msdn.com/brandonturner/archive/2009/08/16/broken-theme-in-windows-live-writer-you-can-fix-it.aspx

  • Hey,

    it makes THE difference. Suddenly the "enter....." field appeared. But the download link of Brandon's Theme Fixer doesn't work anymore (looks like).

    But I hope I can work with it now without problem, even if I didn't fix the theme. Or not?

    Thanks for the quick reply

  • I just tried the download link, worked ok here (using http://brandonturner.org/ThemeFixer.exe). Either way, glad you can now at least get to your post title.
