WordPress Thickbox Plugin for Live Writer

I’m a huge fan of the Lightbox plugin for blogs, whether it’s on wordpress or or any other blog type. For those who don’t know, the Lightbox plugin enables you to have your blog set so that if a user clicks on an image, that image opens inline, rather than redirecting them away from [...]

WordPress Featured Image Plugin For Live Writer

For a while now, @ kipkniskern (my LiveSide mate) has been asking whether it was possible to be able to set the featured image of a post for WordPress. This would save everyone the job of publishing the post, then having to log into the site and manually set the featured image. This was a [...]

Ages and ages and ages and ages (ok, you get the point) ago I told you of a hidden feature within Live Writer called AutoReplace. At the time, I mentioned that as it was unsupported/hidden, it could go at any moment, and guess what, it did. So I removed the plugin from my SkyDrive area, [...]

Whilst checking out my usual “Live Writer” search on twitter, I came across a question from @dereklakin asking if there was a plug-in for users so they can insert code into their blogs using wordpress’ [sourcecode] tag. Well, there wasn’t. So I volunteered to make one, and make one I did. Obligatory screenshots:          [...]

tweetmeme_url = ‘’; tweetmeme_source = ‘scottisafool’; tweetmeme_service = ‘’; Last year, Aaron Bregal of the Live Writer team, wrote a great, comprehensive list of all the keyboard shortcuts available in Live Writer 2011. Now, unless you’re this guy, you won’t remember all of those shortcuts. You won’t, so stop saying you can. So what do [...]

Clipboard Capture Plug-in Updated

tweetmeme_url = ‘′; tweetmeme_source = ‘scottisafool’; tweetmeme_service = ‘’; tweetmeme_hashtags = ‘iphone4′; I always say, if you use one of my plug-ins and you want some enhancement, I can’t do that enhancement if you don’t tell me. Well, I got told. Twice. Granted, one of the requests was a review on the gallery page for [...]

tweetmeme_url = ‘’; tweetmeme_source = ‘scottisafool’; tweetmeme_service = ‘’; tweetmeme_hashtags = ‘iphone4′; Writerous is my Live Writer plug-in that I made to allow users to use Live Writer to publish to Posterous, something which can’t be done in Live Writer natively (due to the Posterous API). I was recently made aware of a post in [...]

Hot on the heels of the Google Buzz plugin, is a plugin that I wrote for @stevecla that lets you insert a twitter quote from a new service called Blackbird Pie. Basically this service lets you put in a tweet url and get the code to put on your blog/website that shows that tweet, for [...]

tweetmeme_url = ‘’; tweetmeme_source = ‘scottisafool’; tweetmeme_service = ‘’; tweetmeme_hashtags = ‘scottisafool’; Recently, I was badgered by @jas to make him a Live Writer plugin similar to the Tweetmeme plugins I’ve written. The plugin he wanted was for Google Buzz, you know, that service from Google that only Google uses. Anyway, I wrote the plugin, [...]
