Feature Request RRS feed

  • Question

  • I use WLW to manage and post to dozens of blogs. One of the most frustrating things is having to enter the same three FTP infos for all of the dozens of blogs. It would be nice to be able to save FTP accounts and then select one from a drop down menu for each blog instead of having to fill in the entire form.

    Any chance of adding this feature?

  • Do you mean for uploading images? Which version are you using? I am using Build 14 and it allows me to store the FTP info for each blog (under Tools->Accounts->Edit->Pictures->Configure FTP. When I have written a post I can pull down the appropriate blog and post it with no need to re-enter FTP information.

  • Thanks for the feedback V_Rocks. We had exactly this kind of UI in a previous product our team worked on, and received the feedback that it was extremely confusing to users to have to think about two independent lists of accounts.

    If it helps--you can poke around in the registry under HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live\Writer\Weblogs\ and somewhere under there you should be able to see how the FTP config info is being stored. If you are a programmer or know someone who is you might be able to implement the FTP management feature yourself :)
