Okay, I just tried out WLW and published a post to my local/dev copy of BE.NET. It works great! There's my post, right in my blog.
Now for my problem. I can't see the new post in dbo.be_Posts!?
What is going on with Windows Live Writer? Anyone know where its storing the data, if it's not in the data store specificed in your web.config?
I'm absolutely baffled with this. A huge reason for my choosing BE.NET was precisely because I could figure out what was going on under the hood.
It is possible I did something undesireable to my dev environment?
I'm going to investigate this stuff and come back with my findings. Unless someone here can shed light on the subject.
Sorry if this is retread ground and answered in another post. If it is, I couldn't find it and think it's worthy topic for exploration.
