@ScottIsAFool@martinwoodward Just wondering if there's any other ways I can help out with the OLW project? I've got two PRs that have been sitting there for a few months now (not to mention the 17 others). The issue list is building, but there hasn't been any commits to master since March. After the initial burst of enthusiasm following the open-sourcing, I'm worried that things might be stagnating, and am keen to find out if there's anything I can do to help avoid that. David
@flcdrg we are planning to try and get the ball rolling again soon.
I think I might be coming back. I finally finished my own project.
@joeaudette I could probably go with MetaWeblog since that seems relatively simple. But thanks for the links, I'll use those as a basis as I implement it in Go.
@ScottIsAFool thanks, I'll make sure I do that
@flcdrg@ScottIsAFool@martinwoodward +1 I am willing to volunteer if we need code reviews or other process to unblock integrations. I am new to open source but I have significant industry experience. What is the bar for code that is accepted to the main branch? The road map I was able to find seems a bit out of date. Do we have stakeholders with a vision for where the project is going now?
anyone here...I am trying to figure out how to install the latest version..I am still stuck on the old one
@chewyland what version does it say you have when you click on File > About?
@rfulwell we are starting to get a bit more on track with the project, so things will start rolling again soon. Good to know we have a willing volunteer to help though, that will help us a lot.
It's the same one since the beginning of the year
I wish could help with development..but perhaps I can help with a few bug fixes?
Yes, 0.6.0.0 is the current release, we are looking at getting a more regular update cycling going.
Hi All, I have used WLW in past and was delighted to see that it has revived and is back in open dev. Since, now I have picked up some C#, I would like to be part of this awesome tool. However, it is my first OSS I am feeling comfortable to contribute to as I have used it myself. It will be great help me in getting started with it. I am open to any sort of task. Thanks.
Hi, Does any one konw do we have a plan to support macos?
Any devs at the MVP Summit? Would be great to catch up.
Sadly I couldn't be there this year.

Hey there guys, I'm new here
Hello , I am new here as well. I was looking for more documentation - specifically for the spell checker.
I Have downloaded the latest version of the source code and would like to attempt to add that ability for Win7
@wildbl67 The spell checker is a native Windows 8 component as far as I know.
Correct, it's native to Windows 8 and above, we're just utilising the built in one.
hi guys, I am new here and actually just have one question want to ask. my company would like to use Open Live Writer on the website for ppl to edit article and image. but can we get some of functions only not all the functions ?
Asking before searching, do you know if there is a way to select which type of post to create?
@sebastienros how do you mean? Do you mean choosing between post and page?
Sounds like this yes, is "Post" and "Page" something you made up or is it the current choice?
I am working on some metaweblog support and wondered if I could pick a type from OLW if the api was providing such a list
Those are the current choices, but that is blog type dependent on whether you have the option of a page.
thanks, will dig further then
@sebastienros pretty sure that what gets surfaced in the UI of OLW depends on what is in the wlwmanifest.xml file of the site/app. there are attributes there for indicating that pages are supported which determine whether olw gives an option for creating pages. I implemented metaweblog api in my simplecontent project with support for posts and pages.
Thanks Joe, will take a look at it. You better than anyone know why I am asking ;)
I figure you're implementing it for orchard2?
yeah, last step before blogs support is complete. And while I am at it I assumed I'd better support any kind of content.
Not that a big task I as I am porting most of the code from O1
I have a re-useable implementation of metaweblog api here, just inject an implementation of the service methods. though I'm sure there are other implementations for .net core by now there wasn't when I built this
cool, we already had this in orchard too. Not sure I want to look at yours, I could like it ...
hit me, I clicked the link
In orchard there is another layer actuall, XmlRpc, and metaweblogs is just one of the providers (this only one technically)
mine is not a general xmlrpc solution it is specific to metaweblog api methods. seemed like the old cook computing xmlrpc library source code disappeared when google code went down. I remember looking for it
I am not saying the orchard solution is how it should be done ;) theorically it is, in practice it's futile. Just porting as it's easier for me right now.
I'd like to install a dictionary but I can't. I use to have it with MS WLW but with OpenLW is not working. I don't even see any language in the option list . Can anyone help, please? Thx
