After writing such a long article (in my past post), I realized that I needed a better way to post, format, and show my code snippets. I’ve decided on Windows Live Writer as my blogging tool and WLW Code Snippet plug-in for displaying my code.
The advantages to using a tool like this are:
1. Article is easier to read
2. Code is easier to read
3. Line numbers help us to talk about specifics in the code
What tools are you using that could help my blog be more interesting and interactive? I welcome your input.
I also have a couple of tips for working with WLW:
1. Single space: The default when you hit “enter” is double space. To get single space, hit
[Shift] and then [Enter].
2. To help streamline the blog by shortening up all the blog posts on the Home page, use
“jump break”. Problem is, WLW doesn’t have jump break built into (yet), i.e. the tool is
grayed out. What I do is go the “Source” to view the HTML. Then place <!—more –>
just after the parameter or sentence that I want on my Home page.
