    I just installed Bilbo Blogger on OpenSuSE 11.2 (KDE 4.4.1) using YaST. The installation was successful, but I found a issue when try to configure my blog… it said:

    The API guess function has failed, please check your Internet connection. Otherwise, you have to set the API type manually on the Advanced tab.

    It should be automatic since I use self-hosted wordpress blog. Where I can help(s) about this issue?

    Thanks.

    If its self hosted wordpress, then you can select wordpress for api type and 1 for blogId!
    and add an xmlrpc.php after the blog address! (try open that Address and check if its ok!)

    I liked Blogilo as a blog client, however, some functions could be addicted on new releases, they are:

    * Real-time image scaling
    * Fix the typing screen (in visual editor) as the blog reading space
    * Give the option to upload images to others image hosting services, as Picasaweb or Imagehost.

    That’s all, folks!

    I`ve been thinking about using Blogilo on a new system do you guys think its a better than running Windows Live Writer ? And is Blogilo 1.0.1 the latest and best download ?
    Thanks for any advice, Jim

    Blogilo 1.0.1 is still one of the advance version of blog client around. It have functions in which other blog writer do not have. I’m still waiting for the new client to be ready or release as it have being a while since they release an update.

    @Jim
    In my personal opinion, Blogilo is a whole lot better than Windows Live Writer.

    Your best bet to find a solution would be official WordPress support forum at WordPress.org

    Adam i am using Blogilo and it seems fine to me. I ran into a minor problem with it but then it worked fine once i re installed it.

    @ Carlos (comment 3)

    I feel the same way. Its a great tool but it needs to have a few more features. Blogilo could definitely use the features you were talking about. They should work on the typing screen and add a real time image scaling.

    Has this project been abandoned?

  11. #11 by aw - December 14th, 2013 at 09:16

    Has anyone looked at the code that this programme outputs?

    It is completely and utterly (literally) worthless. Sorry, but who thought that is was a good idea to wrap every post in html and body tags, not use paragraph tags but to wrap the paragraphs in div tags?

    Then, if you change the style it throws in font tags (wtf!?!?).

    I haven’t tried anything else with this programme since it produces such unusable (and frankly embarrassing) nonsense.

    As Biffster wonders, this seems to be an abandoned project. It really ought to be removed from KDE for the time being as an utter embarassment.
