Hey everyone. This is Voltaire. I’m currently writing this post on a new add-on I found: ScribeFire. Essentially, it’s an amazing blog tool which every blogger should use. I am going to assume that this post hits the front page of The Underground as usual. Here is what the tool looks like:
First off, as you will notice, ScribeFire takes up the bottom portion of your current window, but its a static frame, so you can continue to browse without ever leaving the ScribeFire tabs. As such:
ScribeFire allows you to update many blogs quickly. You can update most of them all the time, and for WordPress users, this is an ideal tool. You can easily tag categories, view and edit old entries, and create pages, posts, and drafts. You can even save notes. Also, an interesting feature of ScribeFire is that it has its own tabbing feature, so you can create tabs similiar to Firefox. This easily allows for multitasking.
Just as well, you can easily use the WordPress categories. The default setup of ScribeFire has a panel on the right hand side with 4 tags: Blogs (manage all blogs form here), Entries (view all entries, notes, and pages of the selected blog), categories (check mark all categories for the post), and Options (standard blog options, in this case, WordPress options like timestamp, tags, trackback, etc.)
The functionality of ScribeFire is almost, if not better, than using the standard WordPress writing page. If you are a blogger, this is a great tool for you to fool around and play with.
