    What about Blogger bug ? Feeddburner redirect is not working ? Do we have a solution to it or it remains there ?

    How about telling me how to close the About page that pops up in the edit window. I clicked ‘About’ on your icon and now the damn About page won’t go away. Dumb.

    Thanks for the case-insensitive tag sort. I can deal with case sensitivity at the linux command line, but don’t even like it there.

    I know my situation is in the minority (it always is), but I have found that ScribeFire is not useful with the Pivot software that powers my blog. What is missing in particular is a means to draft the teaser portion of a new entry; ScribeFire doesn’t recognize the existence of the teaser and only allows me to write a single monolithic entry. That ignores one of the useful features of Pivot that I like. Having to first draft an entry in ScribeFire and then jump to the blog interface and edit the entry again and republish defeats the purpose of ScribeFire.

    Thanks so much!
    This version was upgraded for my some wishes. Very Good!

    I have 6 blog sites which names are similar, so I confused the posting position sometimes.
    The below features are very helpful for solution of the confusing problem.
    # Blogs have their URL as tooltip in the blog listing
    # Displays “View blog” button after publishing
    # “Publish” button now contains blog name

    And, Hmm…
    I have a suggestion which related above feature.

    #[Suggestion]# Blogs have their CHANGED NAME as option in the blog listing

    This function will be helpful for recognition of blogs!

    Another functions are useful also!
    # Close button has been restored
    # Clicking on a blog name opens in new tab, not window

    (Forgive my humble english…)
    Thanks very much, ScribeFire!!!

    #12, jtdarby: you can switch that off by going in to settings (click the << in the far top left corner if the menu isn’t open) and under Publishing features make sure “Automatically insert Powered by ScribeFire” is NOT ticked. Should do it for you!

    Is it that I just couldn’t find it or there’s no way to edit the publish date/time anymore?

    Dominik Lukes

    Much better but the blockquote feature is still incredibly buggy. Basically, I have to do all the management in the HTML view.

  23. 23
    Scot Herrick

    I would add a vote to being able to publish in the future. Little of what I do, since it is original content(!), needs to be done right now. Consequently, I only use scribefire in “fire” situations.

    Also, the image editing is a must, echoing the needs of others.

    (All blogs are in WordPress 2.2.1)

    Those are my two votes. It’s a really nice program.

    Wow. Sorry you guys are getting beat up so much. I think this is a nifty little add in. Yes, it’s a little buggy, but thanks.

    The Myspace plugin no longer works, that’s a bummer. First, the myspace add-on doesn’t save the password anymore. Entering it allows for a login, but even in the myspace mode the “publish to” button only sends it to another blog I have, not myspace. It’s a bummer, I’d really like to have that feature back, and have the add on work again

    Excellent work guys, Scribe Fire is a lifesaver.

    Something I did notice though is when I use the tag I get an error.

    The text “” shows up rather than letting ppl click the link to read more.

    Any fix for that? Or is it possible to add an html option so codes like these can be typed in directly?

    Thanks again guys,

    I’ve described the bug in that link – http://munchyrat.wordpress.com/2007/08/18/scribefire-broken/ -basically, I can’t blog!

    I normally don’t do anything with Scribefire except quick-n-dirty note-taking for my blog and yesterday, I thought: “I wonder what ‘page info’ does?” and clicked that.

    I can’t make anything take me back to the “blog this” page!

    Thanxs for creating ScribeFire. I love it, makes my blogging easier and faster. When you get a moment if you could add a timestamp feature, that would totally rock. Thanxs, again.

    Nice add-on, which would *really* be useful if passed thorough a user modifiable template in a file somewhere with something like:
    [content]
    [title]
    [text]
    [date]
    [date/time]
    [blogname]
    etc

    And if it were possible to perserve formatting or have SF always paste content into HTML view.

    And (unclosed) blockquote could be disabled by user.

    And if clear all would reset position in tag listbox back to the top.

    And if after post, SF would always display the text it does when finished.

    Using FF/SF under Linux, closest thing I’ve found to blogjet, and it’s far more convenient being a FF plugin instead of an external application.

    In case of locale Dutch, the tab text is out of bounds.
    First tab text ‘Blogs’: only ‘logs’ is visible. (use a smaller font when text is out of range)

    Better use ‘Notities’ as translation for ‘Notes’ in stead of ‘Opmerkingen’. This is shorter.

    Great add-on !

    Hi,
    I would like to apologize. At first I didn’t like ScribeFire,
    as I published on my blog. Then someone told me where to find
    the options menu to disable the “powered by” text.

    I’m enjoying using it now, so good work guys!

    PS: It doesn’t seem to insert tags though… a bug?

    Suggestion for you GUI:
    Enhance the insert hypertext link to include a title and target
    Insert a page brake (with word press this allows the post to be broken with a Read More link)

    Wonderful extension! I only miss some documentation. Is there any site that describes ScribeFire in detail?

    It is really a shame if a lot of this functionality is unused because people do not know how to. I really miss:
    – a list of keyboard shortcuts (I only know of F8)
    – a list of themes and add-ons (if there are none yet, please say so instead of just redirecting here).

    Feature suggestion: a pool of special HTML symbols, like WordPress.com has on the “advanced” toolbar. You could fill one of the default (sample) notes with such symbols. Then it would be easy to copy/paste any symbol from that note.

  58. 58
    MaryAgnesLamb

    Lovely. A few issues. Block quotes stillhurl, basically. As another commenter said, one pretty much has to do all of that oneself, in editing the html. That would be a great bugfix. Also, I cannot close the technorati search box screen once I have turned it on. I’ve closed out and reopened, no luck. pretty annoying as I lost all contents of a note for a post I was working on. How does one toggle back tot the editor view from that???

    Elsewise, lovely indeed. I hate to seem ungrateful. This is a wonderful tool!

    I love your software. But when i have uploaded my blog with Scribefire, i always use my own software also, because I want my links mentioned in my blog to open in a new window (target=”_blank”). Can you build in that option also?

    This does NOT – I repeat NOT support “tags” for WordPress. It creates a new CATEGORY NOT TAGS for wordpress (self hosted 2.31). It would be nice if this actually supported tagging and did as they claimed it did.

    I had tested this out several versions ago – and it did the same thing then. I’m sad to see that it was not fixed. I’ll check back before the next release.

    It needs the option of being able to RESIZE images and POSITION IMAGES just like post2blog or windows live writer.. currently it doesnt let a person do that. It also should let you upload images without having to add ftp info

    Also it needs a MORE TAG for long posts for wordpress a button would be fine to split the post

    Like you can add an image but you have to upload it before you can do anything with it.. which is lame..

    browse for image.. select.. position using BUTTONS, resize using buttons or adding your own.. get it so you can add it on left and have text wrap on right or image on right and text wrap on left

    then post and it uploads then…

    This is a highly unstable release version(1.4.2). Half the time it works, half the time it is blank when reviewing posts. Sometimes it totally messes up the formatting.

    You likely know about this already, but the LeakMonitor plugin for Firefox reports a memory leak in the ScribeFire plugin every time a form is submitted (and not just a ScribeFire form). This is on FF 2.0.11 using the ScribeFire 1.4.2 plugin.
