Kindly, if someone can assist me to sort this issue out. I just did some research into my problems and here are the observations Ive made.
I am trying to update my weblog using clients like Blogdesk and Windows Live Writer.
1) ex:if I type the following below:
"html formatting problem", and I view the source code before uploading, what i see on my client is this:
<p>html formatting problem</p>
when I upload to post it on my weblog, it displays like this:
stronghtml formatting problem/strong
I dont know why the html tags are stipped out and displayed wrongly.
2) The same observation goes for images. Images are uploaded into their correct directory, I can see the file there, however it doesnt get displayed correctly.
ex: an image uploaded from a blogging client displays like this:
img height=168 alt=Sunset
src=http://......../uploads/2009/01/sunset-9.jpg width=225 /
note that the < and > tags were removed. If I were to manually edit the code online to:
<img height=168 alt=Sunset
src=http://......../uploads/2009/01/sunset-9.jpg width=225 />
the image gets displayed correctly.
Pls note that I'm also using blogdesk and Windows Live Writer to update wordpress.com hosted weblogs and things have been working fine since.
