Windows Live Writer

Windows Live Writer (WLW) merupakan program aplikasi gratisan dari Microsoft.  WLW bekerja secara offline yang berguna untuk membuat tulisan dan memformat postingan dengan banyak fasilitas seperti tabel, hyperlink, tags sebagai kata kunci utama suatu postingan, dan kategori/label. WLW juga mudah digunakan untuk penambahan gambar dan video.
 
Pada saat menulis di WLW, kita seperti menulis langsung di blog/situs kita, jika template kita sudah di set ke dalam WLW. Terdapat 2 cara menulis dalam WLW sama seperti di blogger, yaitu html dan WYSIWYG  (di blogger disebut "edit html" dan "tulis/write"). WYSIWYG merupakan istilah keren atas apa yang lihat (di monitor anda) merupakan apa yang anda dapatkan hasilkan di monitor lain / dicetak di suatu media. Istilah ini sangat terkenal waktu aku kuliah dulu yang masih belajar Lotus 123 versi 3 (beheula banget). Sebanding dengan WS 4 dan ChiWriter (apa masih ada ya program aplikasi under DOS ini yaaa? Lotus 123 aku masih simpan masternya kok). Tau WYSIWYG? WYSIWYG merupakan singkatan What You See is What You Get.
 
Sebelum melakukan instalasi, perhatikan syarat sistem yang dibutuhkan. Aku rasa syarat 1-6 semua orang dah punya. Syarat ke 7 jika tidak dimiliki di komputer anda, WLW akan mendownload dan menginstalnya (katanya seeh otomatis).
 
Terus perhatikan syarat dibawah ini :
Syarat utama untuk menginstalnya adalah :

Jika anda keyboard mania (baca disini 100 keyboard shortcut) yang lebih suka menggunakan keyboard sebagai alat navigasi di layar (bukan cuma untuk ngetik doang), terdapat tombol-tombol pintas untuk melakukan perintah tertentu seperti :

  1. F11 = view in web layout
  2. Shift+F11 = view in HTML code
  3. F12 = view in web preview
  4. Ctrl+F11 = view in normal layout
  5. Ctrl+N = open a new post
  6. Ctrl+S = save it to your computer

Untuk melihat tombol-tombol pintas/shortcut ini, dapat anda temukan di samping setiap menu. Untuk membuka menu dengan keyboard gunakan tombol Alt+huruf_awal_menu.
Misalnya untuk membuka menu File :
Tekan tombol Alt+F
