Description Roland Hughes 2011-05-31 23:44:31 UTC
This plugin used to work awesome.  It has slowly been degrading with each new release of both Writer and the blogging software it interfaces with.  Now it _only_ works with WordPress if font size is 11 points or larger AND there is no alignment formatting.  It will succeed at posting but indicate severe failure and can no longer open the browser.

Basically, I think the WordPress (and probably blogger) interface specification has changed.  The plugin never did support tagging which was annoying.

[This is an automated message.]
This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

This bug still persists with all platforms and all releases.

For reference: here's the extension: http://extensions.openoffice.org/en/project/sun-weblog-publisher

It's not listed on http://extensions.libreoffice.org/extension-center

Roland: If you think this should be fixed please
1) Ask the developer to add his extension to the according LO extension website
2) Ask him to fix the open issues with that extension in regards to the latest LO release.

Setting to NOTOURBUG.
