Correction–Livewriter is not Onfolio

I was trying to make Onfolio auto-post to WordPress. I used the suggested mechanisms recommended by Onfolio but I couldn’t make it work.

I posted a request for some help on the Onfolio help forum. I later got a response that Livewriter fixed a lot auto-post problems for Onfolio.

The way the response was worded, I assumed that Onfolio development had stopped and that Livewriter had replaced Onfolio.

I then received another reply on the forum that made it clear that Onfolio and Livewriter were two different things.

Just to clarify, Writer doesn’t replace Onfolio, as it’s only used for writing blog posts–there’s no web clipping, RSS reading, or anything else that Onfolio does. Writer is a new and different product that just happens to come from the same team that brought you Onfolio. 🙂

I subsequently listened to the podcast interview of JJ Allaire–founder of Onfolio–and he mentioned that a new version of Onfolio is going to come out. (Sorry, I can’t find the link to the podcast just now.)

I am happy about that. I have worked out a way to use Onfolio and Livewriter that is slick. Not as nice as just clicking on an icon in the Onfolio newspaper but pretty close.
