Testing Gnome-Blog

This is a Gnome-Blog test. 1, 2, 3 This is a Gnome-Blog test.

Gnome-Blog is a Gnome applet that allows you to post blog entries directly from a gnome panel. It has WYSIWYG editing capabilities and you even can drag and drop pictures directly in the editing area. really great actually.

It has support for:

  • /
  • Movable Type
  • WordPress
  • Pyblosxom
  • Any other blog using bloggerAPI or MetaWeblog

But… when I tried to connect to my wordpress from ubuntu. Well it has a little bug (or feature, I don’t know). When you give your blog configuration, you must give the base url, and then it adds the string “wordpress/xmlrcp.php” to reach the RCP server, but I don’t have my wordpress under a “wordpress/” folder, so I couldn’t connect to my wordpress.

The fix is really simple. Just open the /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/gnomeblog/ file and remove the “wordpress/” from line 129.

Remove and add gnome-blog applet from the panel and you are done, it works like a charm.
