I use Windows Live Writer to write my blog posts offline, then schedule them to publish in advance. I love Windows Live Writer because it’s so much easier to write posts offline. With Windows Live Writer, I can add/edit images, insert videos, assign categories/tags, select author, modify the permalink, and password-protect a post without being connected to the Internet. 

Windows Live Writer has a keyword field that allows you to add tags to posts, but it’s not enabled by default. Some WordPress theme templates enable the feature in WLW, but some templates do not. This was the case with one of my blogs. I can write posts offline and assign categories, but I cannot add tags. I have to publish the posts first, then go to the WordPress dashboard to add tags. It was kind of annoying, and I didn’t want to install a new theme template. I was searching for a work around solution and found this utility to enable keywords/tags field to WLW. You can download the WriterKeywordsEnable utility to force the tags field to your WLW.

Ever wanted to change or test a new WordPress theme without making the new theme public yet? Changing WordPress themes should be as easy as clicking a template on the Appearance/Theme page of your WordPress dashboard. However, some advanced WordPress users like to tweak the template/CSS to suit their preference. It’s hard to tweak the template before changing a theme because you’re not sure whether the tweak will look right or not. Often times, you have to change the theme first, then tweak the template one modification at a time.  You have to refresh your website to see each change until you are satisfied. Meanwhile, all your visitors are seeing all the changes you are making at the same time and it’s likely that your website will exhibit strange and odd behaviors. 

I found a WordPress plugin called Theme Tester that you can use to test new WordPress themes without letting your visitors see any changes. As long as you are logged in to your blog, you will see the new theme and all the changes, but no one else will until you disable this plugin. Very useful!

When I was trying to install a WordPress plugin, I got the following error:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare pclziputilpathreduction() (previously declared in /home2/blindman/public_html/shanghaitechwriter/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-aut omatic-upgrade/lib/pclzip.lib.php:5421) in /home2/blindman/public_html/shanghaitechwriter/wp-admin/includes/class-pclzip.ph p on line  5498

After a quick search, I found that this error has to do with having  WordPress Automatic Upgrade plugin installed in WordPress 2.7. I recently upgraded my WordPress from version 2.5 to 2.7, so I was getting this error when I tried installing new plugins.  If you are using WordPress 2.7, all you need to do is deactivate the WPAU plugin. Wordpress 2.7 includes the auto upgrade feature so you no longer need the WPAU plugin.
