EBE: Windows Live Writer Beta 2 Compatibility

description

UPDATED (cf bottom of this task)
Using WLW B2 to post, embedded images are not showing up. Test posts:

Also some weirdness in WLW's category support for SharePoint, which appears to be quite good: 1) multi-select (but this caused an error), and 2) add new categories (which worked only if the new category is selected).

Tests with Windows Live Writer 2008

Vince mentioned in an earlier email thread that the custom /metawebblog.ashx must be used instead of the WLW integration with WSS. This requires the user enter http://mywssblog.com/metawebblog.ashx into WLW instead of just http://mywssblog.com (the latter will cause WLW to use the WSS interface).

However...even with this change it is still trying to put the pictures in as attachments to the post list item instead of into the Media doclib.

Additional problems found: Can't create new categories, blogs which are using windows live authentication could also be experience problem, live writer add in for twitter is also causing problems with the SP list item URL which conflicts with the EBE vanity URL

Need to validate that we will are sending back the vanity URL vs the SP URL in the MetaBlogAPI

Two users with NTLM authentication are currently using live writer with it on 2.5 beta and not having problems. At this time it will be closed. We should validate in the future the correct URL is being sent.
