  • Yes it should, are you seeing a problem?

    I know it doesn't work if you try to use Windows Live ID authenication with Sharepoint.

  • Thanks, Brandon.

    I haven't tried yet.  We are evaluating our blogging options for corporate use.  I'll report back if I have any problems.

  • Hi John,

    FYI I have been using Writer internally to publish to a Sharepoint blog using Windows Live authentication and it works great!  Writer even picks up the formatting from Sharepoint (as it does with Windows Live Spaces), so you get a good preview of what you are blogging within the editor (including the correct column width).

  • Hi John!

    I've tried it today with the new version.
    It works great, except the posting of comments. I didn't find a way to do that. Maybe this is a sharepoint problem?!

    Regards, MArkus
