I am an unabashed fan of Windows Live Writer and along with OneNote I think it is one of the best programs Windows has made available in the last few years. For me blogging wouldn’t be as easy or even enjoyable without this gem of a program. Along with all the well written plugins that are available for it WLW is an indispensible tool for me.
Like with everything else there are always things that we as users would like to see improved or added to the program. So since I heard the team is working on the next version there are a couple of things that I would like to mention for their consideration.
The first is has to do with the Insert Image option. Right now when you add Alt text to a picture it place the text in the alt=<text> tag. The problem is that both Firefox and Safari look for that text to appear in the title tag so that it will be displayed as the tooltip when you hover over the graphic. Do you think you could fix it up so that the graphic description could be applied to both tags.
The one other thing I would like to see is an option in the Add URL dialog box and that would be the ability to enable or disable the nofollow tag. IIRC WordPress enables the nofollow tag but there are times where we would like the link to be able to be followed.
Other than that guys keep up the good work because you have a lot of bloggers out there who wouldn’t know what to do without you.
Oh and by the way for those of you using the program or looking to use it there is an excellent set of videos available for learning all about Windows Live Writer so make sure to check them out.
