Test of Contribute and WordPress

linktribution CSTB

I just wanted to see if this would work. It appears that Contribute 4 from Adobe has three main pre-configured blog authentications setup in in it. Blogger, Typepad, and WordPress. Since I’m testing this WordPress blog, I thought I would devote a few entries to interoperability of the new Contribute and WordPress. So far so good. It seems pretty seamless, but it duplicates a lot of the web interface within WordPress. So I don’t know if it’s easier or not. It may be the case that hardcore Contribute users would easily move between blogs and websites due to the integration. But I doubt you’re going to get one to start using a blog simply because it supposed to be easier to use Contribute. It doesn’t hide the forms heavy interface of just about every templating/blogging/content management software out on the Internets.

And to my New Media Centers compatriot on Prince Edward Island: Can’t Stop the Back Channel! Link-tribution you all!

Test no. 3

Since I first fired up this Blog to tryout WP2.0 I haven't tried very hard to put it through its paces. Some things like plug-ins are what I find most facinating about WP2.0. I know some big bloggin websites that have relied heavily on plug-ins for their functionality. What plug-ins do you think are the most valuable for folks running blogs off of WP2.0?

Photo Blue Shuttle

Shuttle PC

Every so often, Shuttle tries to compete directly with Apple. I’m sure that now when Apple has started its migration to the dual core Intel machines, they really will have to turn up the heat. If I ever buy a PC for the home, I’ll be torn between a Dell and Shuttle PC. Who knows, it may happen. But I have also just recently purchased a new Intel dual core iMac. So I’m tapped out for now when it comes to computer purchases.

What does WP have that bloglines doesn’t?

I’ve felt like a lost and forgotten orphan sitting over on Bloglines, I just wish someone could combine all the development and openness of WP with Bloglines and combine the RSS reading along with RSS reading/commenting. So now is the time to try out a hosted version of wordpress and see what it’s got.
