Just downloaded 0.5. In the settings window/general
tab there's the place to enter a user's Blogger
username and password. I typed in both and clicked on
the "Save Password" check box. Clicked OK and can
blog fine. After I'm done blogging, I exit the
program. I start up blogBuddy again (bB not in system
tray). I try to post an item but I get an error
message saying my password is incorrect. I check the
settings and see that there are only 4 astericks (sp)
in the text area. My password is more than 4
characters.

To put it in a nutshell, bB is not saving the passwork
correctly.

I'm running bB on a Dell Celeron running Win ME.

    This happens to me (running on Win98) and on a computer
    belonging to a
    friend of mine (I set BlogBuddy up on his puter with my
    user/pass temporarily to test it out).
    He's running on Me. (retch)

    Would it matter maybe that my password's 11 letters long and
    has two numbers at the end mebbe?

    I'm having the same problem with .5
    I'm on win2k professional

    I want the editing previous posting feature or else I'd
    just roll back my install.

    I have a similar problem on NT 4 SP6a. Password is not saved, but instead two
    asterisks are displayed in the Password field after closing and
    restarting bB.

    Hi there. Christopher Woods again. Just saying that I
    loaded up the "problem" beta of BlogBuddy - i.e. the one
    that's not been saving the passwords - but this time in
    Windows 2000, as I did a fresh reinstall (finally!) onto a
    spare hard drive I found knocking about. I couldn't STAND
    my rickety Win98 installation anymore.

    Anyhoo, needless to say I wanted to blog something. I
    loaded up blogbuddy, thought "hang on this is the new one
    isn't it - oh well I'll use it anyway." I then proceeded to
    correct my password in the Preferences, pressed ok, then
    blogged. Closed blogbuddy, re-opened it and checked in the
    PReferences... It remembered my password (!), and continues
    to do so.

    Therefore I can only assume that there's some bug in the
    code that blogbuddy uses to encode the password in the
    preferences ini file that only works properly in Windows
    2000 / XP, not in Windows 98 or Me.

    Just my two pennies' worth :)

    I have confirmed that there is something wrong with the
    password encryption feature. I was afraid this would happen.
    This will be fixed in the next release of blogBuddy.

    I would really appreciate it if you could give me your
    username/password combos (after changing them of course!!).
    Please email these to me instead of posting them to this
    page. Address is sroddsson at hotmail.com.

    Hi,
    I am having the same problem saving password on Windows
    2000, so I think the problem is not OS dependent as posted
    by Christopher Woods

    "Therefore I can only assume that there's some bug in the
    code that blogbuddy uses to encode the password in the
    preferences ini file that only works properly in Windows
    2000 / XP, not in Windows 98 or Me.

    Kindly check it out
