Testing Windows Live Writer

Sir Hal Roberts was kind enough to teach the server not to block Live Writer by adding the “user agent string” for the live writer plugin. I’m not too sure what that means, but it seemed to work when I first set up live writer. As directed in in the “Add New Weblog” setup assistant, I selected the radio button for “Another weblog service” (other than Live Writer) on the first page, then entered the url for my blogs.harvard weblog on the second. This entry forced the setup assistant to ask me to identify the server, which I did. The selection (WordPress (customized)) came up with a default path that I replaced with my url. Live Writer then downloaded the style sheets for my blog, and I began typing this message.
