Trying out Blogilo…

I’ve been looking for a desktop-based WordPress client for a while now. I’ve tried a few, and never found one that suited me. A quick apt-cache search wordpress found Blogilo. I installed it, and am giving it a try.

The first thing I noticed was an issue with publishing. Not good, right? I submitted an article, but it didn’t show up on my blog. I hopped into the admin dashboard, and saw the post listed, but marked as Scheduled. Not just scheduled, but scheduled for a few hours ago. Talk about missing a schedule! And talk about a bad first impression!

It’s been reported, though, that this is only an issue if the server and local desktop are set to different timezones. I am going to test that out and see what happens.

Follow the link if you want to give Blogilo a try.

[Update: Still the same problem. Oh, well, at least I gave it a try...]
