WordPress Publisher Blog is (going to be) written by various team members at Automattic and their goal is to help all publishers get the most out of WordPress. They will cover features that are often overlooked, highlight plugins that extend WordPress functionality and showcase interesting sites being built with WordPress. They are looking for publishers working on innovative projects using WordPress and would like to field questions from users. From the comment that Raanan left on PressedWords, it would appear that they want to focus on large WordPress installations that are doing lots of custom work and help publishers find the proper resources.

A definite daily read!

    This is great. May be more helpful if they tell how big is big enough to be included.

    I had a looked at that Publisher blog and asked myself: Why didn’t they open a Publisher forum instead? Isn’t it more interactive when using forum and everyone can help the others?

    This publisher’s forum is a great idea. Unlike many of the other WP publishers, I am a WP user that occasionaly plays with the various features and plug-ins, trying to get the most functionality out of my web site. And, I try to keep it simple. I am not a programmer.

    I have a suggestion: Currently, I use MS Windows Live Writer to post to my site. It is a great tool. Occasionaly, I have to post a draft to the site and finish it using the WP tools and plug-ins like PodPress.

    Has anyone thought of creating an off-line authoring tool for WP that mirrors the online functionality? It could be a killer app for a lot of users that like to create posts off-line.

    Thanks again, for all your hard work. WP rocks!

    D. Brent Miller had some interesting idea there. I already had that thought in mind. Currently Windows Live Writer can do pretty good but I notice when it come to tagging for selfhosted WordPress it’s totally useless. So I decided to not use it because after posting I will have to jump online and modify the tags.

    I’m a software developer but seem like such project is out of my reach as it require some good experience in making text editor as well as advanced formatting functions.

    Hope this is not too out off topic. Let’s wait for the WP forum to be opened? Or should I open it by myself ;)?

    I think Automattic likes stealing my ideas. Totally had this idea since like January 1st!

    By the way, I was joking. I do think Automattic probably had the idea for longer than the 16th. Good luck to them.
