Does anyone here use BlogDesk to write off-line and then upload to their WordPress blog?

I am having problems getting my BlogDesk configured so that it will talk to my blog. The main problem seems to be that it doesn't recognize my account and password, which I assume is the same as my cpanel account name and password. Does that sound right?

Thanks,
Barbara

You need to use the username/password for your blog, not cPanel.

That's a pretty slick piece of software. Thanks for posting. Sort of like Windows Live Writer only not M$. :xmas:

I tried BlogDesk and liked it - expect every time I started it or posted with it I got asked for my MS Office installation CD. I haven't used Office in years (use Open Office) and have no idea where the disk is, so I ended up deleting it.

Too bad - I liked it better than Live Writer (which I'm using now).

Interestingly, when I try to upload images from LiveWriter using my WP blog's uploading function (not using ftp), I get a 406 "no allowed" error. Is there anyway around this? I'm using the ftp option now, but preferred the other way (which I could have sworn worked a couple times).

I use BlogDesk on two XP machines and have never had it ask for an MS Office CD. That's strange.

For your 406 error I'm not sure but is the folder you are uploading into set to 777 permissions. I choose to use FTP myself.
