Windows Live Writer is a great blog authoring tool but if you want sophisticated table layout and design, you must go to MS Word. But Word is not as good as WLW as a blog writer. Here is how you get best of both worlds…
Here is something I learnt the hard way today … If you use Live Writer to blog to WordPress, you will benefit from what I learnt.
I use Live Writer for blogging to WordPress. I love it – brilliant tool. I have posted 120+ blogs so far. This one had many images. When I posted the draft I got this error.

I needed this myself. I am new to the WordPress platform.
I wanted to add a page containing all my post titles for a simple reason. I don’t want to repeat the same post. Trust me it can happen!
So I did lot of R&D and finally found this simple method. No programming is necessary.
As a result I added the All Posts page to this blog.
The solution: archives Shortcode
There are many other options available for refining the archive list. These modifiers are documented at Archives Shortcodes.
I wanted a serial number before each post. There is a before and after tag. But it did not work as the already has a
- tag around it. So OL and LI was ignored.
Then I found a better shortcode called [ display-posts]
This one gives much more customization options.
The final shortcode gave me exactlly what I wanted.
[ display-posts wrapper=”ol” order=asc display-posts posts_per_page=”500″ include_date=”true” date_format=” : j M y” ]
Here is the final result – All Posts Page
