New plug-ins

Maybe the needed plug-ins for Windows Live Writer have all been written as there has been a big slow down in what has been submitted to be posted to http://plugins.live.com over the last few months.  Since the beginning of 2011 there have three plug-ins added plus an update to an existing plug-in.  Since there is not RSS on the site you have to go looking for them but if you do you can find some great plug-ins.  Here are the ones added/updated in 2011:

  • Twitter Update – this plug-in is a little more extensible than the plug-in published from Microsoft and allows for tweeting to three accounts on post of the blog entry.
  • Amazon Book Linker – Do you blog about books? Add your Amazon associate id and if people click through from your blog to buy you will get your commission.
  • Source Code Formatter – this is an update to a plug-in that has been available for awhile that allows you to added formatted source code to your blog entry.
  • GeSHi Server Blocks – This is another source code highlighter that works with many server side plug-ins for GeSHi.

 

I hope to see many more plug-ins submitted for Windows Live Writer to the plug-in site.  There are many things you can do when you are blogging.

  1. Or, the new gallery sucks that bad; or maybe the submission process sucks or there’s a complete lack of interest in doing plug-ins. Scott Lovegrove seems to be the only person on the web that seems to have an interest in doing plug-ins for Windows Live Writer. Windows Live Writer could use some more plug-ins… maybe with your audience; maybe you could ask the user base…

    WHAT PLUG-INS THEY’D LIKE TO SEE?!

    Maybe that list might make it to the Windows Live Writer dev team; since they don’t seem to have a voice on the web since you were disavowed from their guild.

    My suggestion; how about a plug-in that returns the sidebar with the plug-in options listed?!

    Just a thought.

    Until next time,
