    I’ve installed the latest version on google chrome browser, to manage my blog on client side. My blog is based on wordpress, and the xmlrpc has been enabled, but for security considerations, I’ve renamed wordpress’s xmlrpc.php to a private name, and limited to https access only.
    However, I found the extension doesn’t work on my situation. It would still look for the original xmlrpc.php, not the private one I renamed and specified on the extension’s blog-site configuration form (the API url, right?).

    Please tell me if any workround exists. And wish this problem could be fixed soon.

    I’ve found a workaround temporarily.
    Firstly, I found the extension would still access xmlrpc.php, no matter whether I’ve renamed the xmlrpc entry or not. And from a sqlite database manager program, I found that in database, the ApiUrl is still pointing to xmlrpc.php.
    Since no interface has been provided by the extension to modify the ApiUrl once the blog-site is configured, I have to use sqlite database manager to modify the ApiUrl entry manually.

    And it works.

    Another little problem, if the apiurl is limited via https, I must firstly access the apiurl manually in my chrome browser, to let the https warning show first(the server certificate is self-signed), or the extension wouldn’t work as normal.

    Is anybody else having trouble with Scribefire over the last few days? I use it with Blogger and it’s not working at all. Says Blogger is giving an error, both with Chrome and Firefox, so I downloaded the new version. Same thing, except now I get a clear error saying that “Account disabled” which made me panic a little, thinking there was instead a problem with my site. My account is fine, though, and I can post both through the Blogger site and through other programs. Any idea what’s going on with ScribeFire connecting then?

    Hi! What a great bit of software. Its just what I was looking for to allow members of a not-for-profit organisation to up-date their website as “editors”.

    One feature I would really like to see is the ability to publish “pages” as well as “posts”. Windows Live Writer is the only “desktop” blogging software that I know that can do this.

    Keep up the good work,

    I still prefer the old version. I already use the new version in Chrome, but was using the old in firefox.

    I just lost a few post. Why the new version don’t start with a blank post? When I click to clear fields, is like to edit the old post.

    Until I discover that I lost two posts.

    ScribeFire works with Firefox for Mobile; we’d like to have it working on iPhone, but there are no concrete plans for it right now.

    If your blog supports excerpts, there is an “Excerpt” field below the post editor.
