Manage WordPress Comments from Windows Live Writer
Windows Live Writer stands out among Microsoft’s Live Essentials pack for being a convenient multi-platform blogging tool. The Live Writer team made it even handier for WordPress users by adding comment moderation powers to their desktop app with a plug-in.
Windows Live Writer already offered bloggers and site runners a lot of tools to compose offline drafts, manage online posts, and otherwise escape their dependency on browser-based blogging tools. Comment moderation ties together the other major reason you’d head into your administration panel on a day-to-day basis. While it’s a fairly simple, web-like interface, this small plug-in gets the job done, and it makes Live Writer a real offline substitute for the WordPress dashboard.
Live Writer’s team also recently released two other plug-ins for WordPress blogs that allow site owners to change their blog’s title and tag line, and add custom fields to future blog posts. To install any of the plug-ins, grab their .dll files and place them in your Live Writer plug-ins folder, as detailed at the Digital Inspiration link.
