Although you will be submitting your blog articles via DevCentral the client that you will most likely use to compose the posts is a third party App called Live Writer. Live Writer is a part of the Windows Live bundle from Microsoft and offers a pretty clean and easy way to publish, edit and compose drafts of your blog posts on a PC.

A Note for Mac Users: At this time, only Window Live Writer is supported for publishing to DevCentral.  Therefore we recommend using a Windows machine or VM installed on your Mac.

1. Download & Install Windows Live Writer

You can download Windows Live Writer from here:

Once you have download the file, please install it.

Just a note, the URL: https://tstdmzdevcentral.olympus.f5net.com/metapost.ashx?key=newsarticles

 

should actually have a space in the value, i.e, it should be:

 

https://tstdmzdevcentral.olympus.f5net.com/metapost.ashx?key=news articles

 

 

Live writer will throw an error indicating that.
