I’ve created it for my personal needs and I thought it’d be good idea to share it with the blogoworld.
Installing the Plugin
No MSI mess – pure XCOPY “install”. Two files:
- PracticeThis.dll. It is the plugin itself that goes to Plugins folder.
- Template.txt. This is the template. It can be edited in any text editor Like Notepad or in WLW itself. The details are here.
Using the Plugin
To use the plugin just pick it from Insert menu and you are done. It is like Word template for resume or Visual Studio template for Web Projects. How would look your day if you’d need to write resume from scratch or Web Projects in Notepad?
Editing your template
To edit the default tempalte that comes with the downlad just open template.txt file that is located in WLW’s installation folder and change it to whatever you like it. I use WLW to edit is then open Source pane, copy and paste it into Template.txt.
Go ahead and give it a shot – try Blog Post Template Plugin For Windows Live Writer. Drop me a line in case you like it, drop me another in case you don’t. Let me know what should I improve to make sure you love it.
Have fun. BTW, this post was created with the plugin.
