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?

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.
