Kent wants an offline blogging solution to

Kent and I were chatting today about his desire to have a fully offline blog solution (sounds familiar!)  We hoped that NewsGator was even more tightly integrated with Outlook and could leverage Outlook’s background sync model. Unfortunately, NewsGator tries to directly post and therefore fails if I don’t have a network connection.  Don’t get me wrong … I rave about NewsGator and it’s seamless integration with Outlook for reading blogs.  We’d just like to see it take the next step for posting, too.

  1. You can do offline posting – go to NewsGator/Options, Posting tab, check the "Prompt to save draft when posting", and clear the "Only when Outlook of offline" option.

    It won’t work _exactly_ as you describe, mostly due to limitations in the way we can integrate with Outlook, but it will functionally get you what you need.

    No, but pretty darn close and definitely solves the immediate problem.

    Thanks, Greg – keep up the great work.
