I'm trying to connect to a wordpress blog hosted on MSDN, but I'm getting username/password errors - does anyone know if it's possible?

Hello, I am a newbe.
Can anyone help me to get a solution for pinterest sharing not showing images of posts in Blogger published by OpenLiveWriter?

Anything going on here?

So unfortunately I think the answer is "no", though I'd love to be proved wrong.

After all the effort Microsoft made to get this open sourced, it is looking very much abandoned.

Not from lack of enthusiasm from people wanting to help, but it appears the maintainers are all too busy on other things.

I've got two PRs that have been pending for 10 months now. Not much incentive to keep submitting more if those aren't being processed.

I'm not totally pessimistic. The last dev communication was in the latter portion of 2016 and projects that die tend to have far sparser communication than that...

This repo is not quite active. I agree with @branpurn

We're trying to kick-start it again. Stay tuned.

@flcdrg
As @ScottIsAFool says, things appear to be moving again. Those two PRs I mentioned earlier just got merged by @jongalloway today.

Support is working well for me with @ScottIsAFool sorting out a HTTPS issue I was facing :dancers:

I am coming back for OLW because I realized I still need to post on Google Blogger, not just some random thoughts in my private confluence space
OLW would be very beneficial to the world for anyone who want to share their medicine experience

@karst10607
I just report and post some medicine info that is not a good replacement for Prozac. In my country, hospitals start to replace Prozac with some inferior products, this has caused great danger for patients and people around them.
So keep going, OLW!
Eriawan Kusumawardhono
@eriawan
@flcdrg good for you. I'll recreate my PR about cleaning unused namespace then. it was closed long time ago before.
David Gardiner
@flcdrg
FYI @jongalloway has created an AppVeyor build so if you want to kick the tyres (or tires for my US friends) of the newest build then download the .exe from https://ci.appveyor.com/project/dotnetfoundation/openlivewriter/build/artifacts

The tried to boot open writer live but there is no way. What do you advise me to do? I really need it. I can start from scratch. Thank you
Scott Lovegrove
@ScottIsAFool
@luzmacabra Can you please go to http://smallestdotnet.com, install .NET 4.6, reboot, then try and launch Writer again.

hi
any high resolution support coming to olw?
David Gardiner
@flcdrg
@survivor303 I contributed some fixes that were included in the latest release (around fixing the categories dropdown and some of the dialog rendering). If there are any other problems you're seeing then feel free to create a Github issue (if there isn't one already)
Janne Granström
@survivor303
@flcdrg great, on 4k resolution, the application itself isn't respect windows scaling options, so everything inside of a owl application windows is very small :/

I'm not entirely sure if this has been mentioned already, but in the recent version of OLW 0.6.2 embedded videos no longer are able to be resized or centered in the blog when editing. There is also an invisible container left behind when deleting the embedded video which also must be selected and deleted or else it still inserts the video when the blog is published.

Does this project still live?

@petebennett
Greetings - I hope this portal is the active one. I am .NET developer, seasoned SQL, MS Access Developer (MsAcc 2.0), FoxPro, Dbase, Omnis, I am mostly dedicated to Bootstrap, Blogger (search indexing), ASP.NET all flavors and currently developing Blogger Templates (in progress). I have a personal story I am telling via blogs which I will reveal in the coming months. I am hoping OLW lives on in spite of certain issues it saves time. Something programmers never have enough of is TIME

@eriawan
hi @ScottIsAFool and @jongalloway, is this repo still active?
If it is, I would like to continue to resubmit my PR about cleaning up codes and cleaning up namespaces.

We're trying to kick-start it again. Stay tuned.

@ScottIsAFool is there a continuation then? it's been a year, though.. :worried:

@martingbrown
I had an email from Jon a few weeks ago stating that it isn't dead and that he was going to try to get something going after he finished with Build.
Eriawan Kusumawardhono
@eriawan
aha! thanks for the heads up, @martingbrown
Eriawan Kusumawardhono
@eriawan
because this openlivewriter gitter looks dead for me...
Martin Brown
@martingbrown
I had the same thought too, hence the emails with Jon.
Eriawan Kusumawardhono
@eriawan
finished with Build? do you mean Build 2018 conference? imho, it's ended, and this repo should be alive again
it's been 8-10 days after Build ended
Martin Brown
@martingbrown
Yep 2018, that is what I was told. But be fair, Jon sounds like the only person who is actually managing this project and he does it purely as a volunteer. Lets give him a bit longer before we right it off.
Eriawan Kusumawardhono
@eriawan
fair enough. thanks for the explanation :+1:
Thomas Lee
@doctordns
it's now over a month later (who me, impatient?). I'd love to see some improvements and bugs fixed. But it appears this project has stalled (died?)
Thomas Lee
@doctordns
is this gitter page even active any more??
Sven Van den brande
@SvenVandenbrande
@doctordns Maybe, starting a new open source project could help? I also contacted @jongalloway before build. He told me, he would come with more news after build. But no new news yet. I know he is the only one that's working on the project. But he could maybe add some leads. So the project gets alive again... Other option is starting a new open source project...
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
@SvenVandenbrande @doctordns personally, I don't think forking the project is the correct approach. OpenLiveWriter was created with the intention of being a community driven project, and I agree that this doesn't seem to have happened. What I think does need to happen is that we need to empower people (like yourselves) who are interested in helping/owning the project, and to let them run with it. That will mean handing over some control, but that is far better than letting the project dwindle.
I would love to hear @jongalloway and @shanselman and @onovotny thoughts on this from a .Net Foundation perspective.
Would there be any issues with adding more people into the OpenLiveWriter GitHub repo with the ability to commit code changes, and push out new versions?
Sven Van den brande
@SvenVandenbrande
@gep13 Forking is indeed not a good idea I think. I also think it would be better to use other technology. Now it's WinForms no? If you start with something. I would do it with a cross platform technology
And indeed it would be a good idea to empower people for this
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
@SvenVandenbrande there are definiltey discussions to be had in this area in terms of technology choice, etc. I would say though that a lot of people like using OpenLiveWriter as it is. Yes, it might not be using the most up to date technologies, but it works, and it is good at what it done. Making wholesale chanegs to the application and it's underlying technologies would need to be done carefully. I would rather see any existing bugs in the application corrected and pushed out with new versions. This is much easier to do, and to get people up to speed with how things are done, and again empowering them to do it, and once that community base is established, further changes/improvements can be discussed, as everyone will have a better idea about what is required.
