Feature preview: Quickblogging

Filed under: Preview, Quickblogging, Releases, ScribeFire -- Christopher Finke @ 11:58am

The next release of ScribeFire will have a new feature called Quickblogging. Quickblogging will allow you to edit your blog posts without ever opening the ScribeFire editor. Here’s how it works:

Once you’ve added your blog to ScribeFire, any time you view your blog in the browser, the Quickblogging toolbar will appear:

The first button gives you quick access to the ScribeFire editor, and the remaining buttons allow you to add elements to your posts: photographs from Flickr, YouTube videos, links, quotes, etc. Click on any of them, and you’ll be walked through the rest of the process. For example, take a look at adding a picture from Flickr to an existing blog post:

(Full documentation of the Quickblogging features is being assembled here.)

If you’re interested in trying out this new feature before its general release, you can install this preview release. Feedback is welcome and encouraged.
