Setting Up Blogjet for ExpressionEngine
Posted on April 14, 2006 in ExpressionEngine
This post outlines how you can best setup Blogjet for use with ExpressionEngine. I’ve tried a couple of ways to set it up and have come up with the following approach. BlogJet is a weblog client for Windows that allows you to manage your blog(s) without opening a browser. ExpressionEngine is the blogging software that I use to host my blogs. If you would like to know how to setup Blogjet for use with Marsedit or Ecto then check out this post on the EEWiki.
To connect Blogjet with ExpressionEngine you should use the MovableType API connection settings within Blogjet. If you plan to upload images using Blogjet you will have to turn on the option to use FTP as follows:
- Open C:|Program Files|BlogJet|apitypes.xml in text editor.
- Find these lines:
- Scroll down until you find
and replace it with
- Save file.
Having done this you should now run Blogjet and perform the following steps:
Edit the connection settings
Specify the MetaWeblog API configuration URL of your ExpressionEngine Blog.
Enter Account Username and Password
This is the user name and password that you would typically use to perform edits on your blog.
Configure FTP Connection
Note this option will not appear unless you have carried out the steps I mentioned in the first section of this post.
Enter Account Title and Address
Login and Start Using Blogjet
You should now be able to login to Blogjet and start composing your blog entry.
