How to Post to Blogger and Finally UTF-8 Version!
I’m not dead, as you can notice, neither this project!!
I finally discovered a way to fix the problem posting to Blogger blogs, thank’s to Santosh Mishra from India.
He discovered that Google has not closed the API running on beta.blogger.com server so please follow his instructions for a new account or simply :
1) Click on your account name on the status bar
2) Change Blog Tool to “(Custom)”
3) Change Host to: beta.blogger.com
4) Click OK
I will release until sunday (21-oct) a new version of w.bloggar with (finally) UTF-8 support, and will correct the cms.ini to point Blogger to the beta.blogger.com server.
Version 4.01 Released
As promised last thursday, w.bloggar v4.01 is now released with UTF-8 support and working with Blogger.com again, however I have to inform to Blogger.com users that Google has disabled the 2.0 API so post titles is not available. I will be working to implement the new Google Data API so you will not only be able to post with titles but with all new Blogger.com features, for example tags.
To enable UTF-8 support just edit your Account Options (press F10) and mark the UTF-8 checkbox.
Check here the change log since the last release:
