Well I have to report that the Scribefire post did not work last night. When I published it to my blog the spacing was incorrect and at the end of each sentence, where there should have been spaces, printed was the html code for no blank space. Also the image sat on top and centred, not left as requested. I don't know if Scribefire and Blogger are incompatible although supposedly this is not true. I will try again sometime with a text only trial, since the image caused great problems.
So, if you've even made it this far, feel free to skip the remainder of this post since it's a bit of a rant, as rantish as I get here, on my experience with Scribefire.
I'd like to make a few comments on this editor:
First of all the preview option is very poor and I didn't really know what it was going to look like. The preview bore no resemblance to the published post. I also copied the post to Blogger so could compare it.
Putting in the image was extremely difficult. There was no option to change the size and some images were too large when I inserted them so I had to take them out and try another. There was no option to place the image. It just appeared on the top on the left with the text below. So I had to go into the html and make the text wrap around it. I also had to insert white space because the text was jammed up against the image. Luckily I read the html chapter on images today in a 'how to make your own web page' book. So I could handle this in the html. Now Blogger takes care of all this with image insertion and I have been quite satisfied with it. When I published the post all this was for naught since it was ignored.
I can't see any option to change the date of posting which I use all the time in Blogger.
I could see no way to edit the post after it is published, which I also sometimes do to make a correction.
There is no spell check that I can see.
Now I can see the big pro for this editor is that you get a split window with other web pages (which are of course reduced to half) so you can copy and link to your heart's content. I don't think I link all that much but I could write the text in this editor then copy it to the Blogger editor and insert the images there and post from there. Maybe that would work.
I can see that these criticisms of Scribefire could well be my ignorance of the system and my inability to see how it worked. I saw some high recommendations for it around the internet. However, the webpage from which I downloaded this add-on is under construction due to some major reorganization of Scribefire so I really was hard put to find any help.
So Scan Man, if you drop by, do you have any answers?
Regular programming will resume sooner or later, in the Blogger format for now.
