    I'd like to test the external blogger config. but don't know what to fill in there. What executable programs do exist? Local app. for Windows or web apps. (Java Open Source preferred)?
    => Any help?

      Any feedback on Linux external blogger apps would be helpful to me also.

      "Blog-this" in RSSOwl can be used to write the item to a file (see Context Menu when right-clicking) when configured as follows:

      1. Create a batch file which does something like this (e.g. name it 'blog.bat')
        @echo off
        echo %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 > blog.txt

      2. Configure RSSOwl in the Blogger-section such that the path and name points to blog.bat

      Every time you enter "Blog-this" the item is appended. Then you can edit this and insert it in a Blogger tool.

      Desktop blogger tools:
      * Found FeedFeeder which seems useful and is also Java-based:

      Web-based blogger tools:
      There are many (free) web-based blogger tools around, like e.g.

      I've since found 2 freeware tools that support

      w.bloggar from
      Blog Write from

      But darned if I can get the "Blog News" option to fill in the title or subject/body text.

      I am persistent ;-0
      I just updated to 1.1 Preview Release 02-25 and unfortunately still cannot get "Blog this" to transfer anything into the blog tool.
      Anyone had any success getting this to work ?

    • Nobody/Anonymous

      OK.. getting somewhere ... I read destructions above but ....

      1) Create a batch file named blog.bat

      @echo off
      echo %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 > blog.txt

      blog.txt is created after I select "Blog this" on a feed however, with no Arguements specified in the Blogger preferences the text is always

      ECHO is off.

      I tried entering Arguements in the Blogger preferences but only [TITLE] seems to to work. Entering multiple arguements yields the ECHO is off message

      I ain't real real smart but persistent ... Moment like these make me appreciate a decent help file.

    • Nobody/Anonymous

      OK... it works now :-)

      I needed to change the Blogger arguments. Below is the exact text in my arguments. I needed the " marks.


    • Nobody/Anonymous

      I'm having the same problem in 1.1.3. I use w.bloggar and can't get rssowl to actually insert ANYTHING! Darn, that really would be nice, if it worked.

        Please open a bug report on this issue with a detailed explanation of your setup in Blogger preferences.


    • Nobody/Anonymous

      create a batch file.
      paste this code in notepad:

      @echo off
      echo %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 >> c:\blog.txt

      save the file as: "blog.bat" in your c:\ drive

      put c:\blog.bat in "external blogger" option box


      create and save an empty file c:\blog.txt with notepad.

      when you select blog news it appends to to the blog.txt file.
