Windows Live Writer - Wordpress Gallery Images


  • Guys,
    This is not a major issue, but a general question.

    I do my posts and sometimes I reuse the certain images; is there any way to/plug-in that allows for the selection of a existing image from the Wordpress 'gallery'.


    Is there a way to name the image when it's being upload'd to the server so that the images can be found more intelligently? Right now all the images being upload'd seems to be given a generic file name with a number.

    Thanks in advance and I appreciate it...

  • Sadly the answer to both questions is no.  We really want to improve this in the next version of Writer because a lot of people would like this.

  • I presume the next version of Windows Live Writer won't be out until early 2010; since your on yearly release schedule- Is this correct?

  • We are on roughly a yearly schedule based on our past release dates.  Thats the most detail I can really comment on at this point.

  • Old post, I know, but I'd really like this feature to be added.  It's really my only issue with WLW.
