Ok. I am trying some way out there, It is a Mac OSX app called Kung-Log that allows me (I think) to post and edit my MovableType blog directly from a friendly Mac OSX interface.
We will see what happens as I am “Kung-Log” blogging this one right now.
update It worked! I am now modifying this entry, still from this KungLog app:
And Shazam! It has a Mac interface for uploading images to the server and it automatically generates the HTML to display:
Kung ho! This is pretty wild!
More cool Kung-stuff! You can upload an image via Kung-log and have it simply embedded as above (same as MovableType via the browser), but if you select the “thumbnail” option, it uploads and generates the code to display a thumbnail as embedded in the blog page AND builds the link to the pop up with the full image.
Let’s give it a Kung-whirl:
Oh man, it creates and uploads the thumbnail!
More updates Wang Kung! Even more to like. Kung-blog has an HTML menu for markign up selected text, and it is fully customizable, and you can create keyboard shortcuts. So for example, I use a special style sheet for my quotes from other web sites, so I can copy a portion of text from a web page (or any text for that matter), and just do a option-command q
And I get in one motion the copied text placed inside the DIV tags I use to markup a quoted portion of text.
This goes way beyond the non-existent HTML tools in the MT bookmarket.
And if that is not enough… K-L has a spell checker. I need that. Badly. And it was a slick preview that shows you actually how the page will appear, not the rinky dink preview you get via MT.
