Description:

KBlogger development has stalled lately and I propose using Bilbo, unless somebody comes up and works on KBlogger. Bilbo has almost the same concept,which was planned for KBlogger. I'll focus on KBlog (the library in kdepimlibs), which is used by Bilbo as well and maybe do a plasmoid which will be like the KDE3 kblogger.

Recent sources are in KDE svn at: svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/playground/pim/kblogger"
If you seriously are willing to work on KBlogger to push a 1.0 release (which should be still quite some work) you can contact me on whilo@jabber.org .

KBlogger pre1.0 is a kicker-applet for quick blogging, like gnome-blog. Just push the blog button and blog!
It supports the Meta-Weblog-Api, which is supported by most blogs, and Blogger API 1.0.

KBlogger beginning from 1.0 is a full fledged blog manager for KDE 4. It supports Blogspot, Wordpress, Drupal and LiveJournal accounts. In general all blog backends/servers that support MovableType/MetaWeblog/Blogger1.0 or GData are supported, which are quite a lot.

DEPENDENCIES: You need kdebase-dev-4.0.0 and kdepimlibs-dev-4.0.0 (which depends on qt-4.3.3, kdelibs-4.0.0, kdelibs-dev-4.0.0 and kdepimlibs-dev-4.0.0).

THE KDE4 VERSION IS ALPHA CODE AT THE MOMENT, ONLY USE IT IF YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS.

Additional infos can be found on the webpage.

I think that the tab order of controls also should be changed.
From
Title -> Send button -> etc.
to
Title -> Category -> Post content -> Send button

I think it will be more comfortable to write posts this way

Also it seems when i open an editor dialog and press ESC, the dialog closes but i cannot open one any more.

You may want to look at the "reject()" method of QDialog.

I have fixed the esc issue and I have fixed the DateTime issue for UTC time. Test 0.7beta3 please.

I most likely won't make it a systray application, neither in KDE3 nor in KDE4, since I don't think there is any reason for KBlogger to be open all the time. The applet layout in 0.7 and earlier is not the nicest, but we focus on KBlogger 1.0 for KDE4 now.

Comment moderation is not supported by the apis. Maybe Atom API will fix this.

Hi,

It would be great if you could drag and drop an url on the kicker-applet, so it will make a link (similar to blogthis-bookmarklets). Right now (0.7beta1) it is not possible to do that, not from Firefox and not from Konqueror.

Cheers,

Hi,
the stylesheet error is harmless. You have to configure your blog correctly.
What blog software are you using, Wordpress?
Hope it works now,

From the "configure" dialog, what is the Blog-ID field? And the "Get blog IDs from the blog." button does not do anything... I am assuming that if http://foobar.wordpress.com is by blog, then the Blog's URL box has to be http://foobar.wordpress.com

Looking forward to a solution....

If http://somesite.com is your Wordpress installation, you have to add /xmlrpc.php to it.

E.g.
http://somesite.com/xmlrpc.php
http://someothersite.com/somepath/xmlrpc.php

Cheers,
whilo

P.S.: Sorry for responding so late. KBlogger for KDE 4 is in the pipe ;-)

Thanks.. I added the xmlrpc.php extension to the blog URL and that worked... Thanks a lot. I did not see this info anywhere... It might be worthwhile to include this info is the main page here on kde-apps and/or along with the software, in some README file. It would help at least n00b bloggers like me.

Thanks once again, looking forward to the KDE4 updates.... Great Work.

it shows the error on a new window and at the bottom of the main one, it shows "unknown type of XML markup received. Markup" and then the begining of the what seens to be the html. The Send button is also greyed out.

BTW, is it supposed to loose the text i was writting on kblogger? if i close the window and re-open Kblogger, i have to start all over?

It wasn't supposed to do it like that. But Antonio changed it to the new behaviour. As far as I know KBlogger for KDE 4, won't have this problem.

Had old version 0.6.5 running fine.

Downloaded new 07-beta1 Sources.
did .configure && make && make install, wich seemed to work fine.

After relogin to KDE i could add the Blog! to Kicker again.

But when opening a blogging Window a message appears:
KBlogger Warning: Stylesheet not found!
Send Button is greyed out and a message next to it java.lang.Exception: RPC handler object "metaWeblog" not found and no default handler registered.

My Distro & Co:
