WordPress Tags and Windows Live Writer

Filed under: Blogging,Tools,UX - User Experience — ramsblog @ 6:20 am

I use Windows live writer to draft my posts and publish to this blog when ready. Windows writer also warns before posting to add the tags if required. Off late, I used to add technorati tags before and off late thought of adding wordpress.com tags. Anyways, doing so, refers to the example.com when it gets published.

however, when I directly go over to the wordpress.com website, create a new post or edit one, and add wordpress tags adds ok although tags are associated directly to post property attributes. However, adding tag as a link at the bottom of the page adds reference to example.com and obviously a click to those links fails. See last line in my previous posts having link to example.com and brings up an error page. Interesting…

I am trying the technorati tag on this post this time…


Technorati Tags:


  1. I don’t understand why Windows live writer didn’t have the tags for wordpress insertion as a normal feature. I hate to go to wordpress.com and then open the Post i just wrote then put the tag in. so tidious

  2. @Iamgotzaa,
    I agree. I haven’t tried it in a while. I don’t know if there is another version of LiveWriter available with this fix. or Perhaps, it is a fix from WordPress API. not sure, where the issue. I will try out again.
