Updated: This post was out of date and please refer to the new tutorial here - Integrated with Window Live Writer.

In the last two posts, we had described how to install, configure and use the "SunBlog" module in DotNetNuke(DNN) platform. Here we will continue to tell you how to write your post of "SunBlog" with Window Live Writer(WLW). You know, the Window Live Writer is so great for post management of web blog that "SunBlog" had supported this killer feature natively. And another reason is that editing a long blog post in the FCK editor is painful.  Anyone who has ever lost a blog post because of a login timeout knows just how painful it truly can be. I spend an hour or more writing my blog posts and to have it just disappear is enough to make you cry. Ok, if you haven't yet set up your WLW to post to your blog, now let us go ahead. It's really easy. Here's the simple steps below:

  1. Start WLW, and progress through the first couple of steps, indicating you already have a blog, and that it's with 'Another Blog Service'.
  2. Enter your blog URL and user account which related with your blog.
  3. Select "MetaWeblog API" as the type of weblog.
  4. Enter your Blog Posting Url: this is pretty easy to get. The default Url for SunBlog Should be "http://www.yourdomain.com/MetaWeblog.ashx" (Replaced with "http://www.yourdomain.com/DesktopModules/SunBlog/MetaWeblog.ashx" in v2.3.6 or "http://www.yourdomain.com/MetaWeblog.aspx" in latest version). Please make sure that you replace the "yourdomain.com" with your actual website domain.

After doing this, you should be good to blog!

Good luck blogging!
