Thingamablog - Blogger.com


Trying to figure out how to use Thingamablog with my blogger.com account. Can't seem to figure out the settings. Assume a blog at http://wmeler.blogspot.com

Could someone tell me the settings or show me a good link? For example, blog URL vs. blog path. Also, do I transfer via FTP?

Completely clueless. Have never used an offline blogging tool, so please be patient. I have googled for this to no avail.

Hi there--

I did a search for "post to blogspot with thingamablog" and found a review; not sure if it will be helpful but you might take a look at http://www.thesitewizard.com/reviews/thingamablog.shtml

Also found that Blogger quit supporting ftp in 2010: "For that reason, we are announcing today that we will no longer support FTP publishing in Blogger after March 26, 2010. We realize that this will not necessarily be welcome news for some users, and we are committed to making the transition as seamless as possible." And more at http://buzz.blogger.com/2010/01/impo...ftp-users.html

Thingamablog for Mac

Hi,
I am a newbie to this site and indeed a bit of a thicky when it comes to matters of FTP/blogging etc.

That disclaimer made, please can anybody explain to me in easy step by step, thicky terms how to get Thingamablog configured to work with my Blogger pargliding blog 'Artikulation' at http://flyravey.blogspot.com.

Obviously I have managed to enter the URL, but I am having great difficulty working out what to put into the 'Base path' field and other fields. I thought I had got something working when the program appeared to accept a test post, but then clicking on the post link in the program opens Safari, which reports that the post does not exist, but gives me the option to go 'Home', which does link to my blog homepage. Needless to say, the last post on the blog is the previous one and not my test post.

Can anyone please run me through setting up an established blog, so that I can make posts from Thingamablog which will then publish to my Blogger Blog.

thanks for any help anyone can offer

Dave
