Live Writer and [code]

Dec 8, 2007 at 9:39 PM
I'm back trying to get familiar enough with to use it for real. The whole code:c issue seems to be working for me now, as long as I'm entering it using tinymce in the standard web interface. I'd like to give Live Writer a go, and the basics seem to be working OK for me. However, when I try using it to post code sections, those sections do show up in the post; but they include the literal text code:c and /code within the code section. If I use the web interface to edit the post and just immediately click "Save Post", the post is then rendered correctly. I haven't tried this in a debugging environment - if I had to guess, there's something slightly different about the processing of the post when done via Live Writer / the API vs. when it's done using the web UI.

I don't know if this will look OK when I post this message, but here's the rendered html source from the post when it looks right:

You can use native WLW plug-ins to inset a code blocks, it is a lot easier.
