Testpost from Bloggar

[19 June 2005] After testing Qumana the other day, I thought it was about time I had a look at w.bloggar. Here are my first impressions:
Bloggar is a standalone application, like Qumana, so you can create posts without being online. I had no trouble configuring it for Movable Type.

It presents as a straightforward editor and requires no knowledge of HTML. Unfortunately it isn't WYSIWYG as any formatting commands are simply translated into HTML and inserted in the text. Bloggar seems very complete and I hope to use it for my next few posts. I like its ability to edit previously uploaded items. I was curious to find out what the greyed-out "Template" item in the toolbar does. I had hoped to be able to teach Bloggar my Weblog layout by pointing it to a stylesheet. But we'll have to do some more digging to find out if that's possible, as my copy mysteriously had no help files.
