Support » Everything else WordPress » composing posts using your own text editor

  • Resolved corsandy


    If you want to use your own text editor to compose your posts (I use Emacs), how does that generally work? Do you have to cut and paste back and forth between your text editor and the WordPress editor, or is there another (better) way? (e.g., somehow uploading the file directly). Maybe I didn’t search very well but I couldn’t find anything in the documentation on this.
    Thanks very much.

  • yup…cutting and pasting

    Unless your editor of choice allows remote publishing

    But there is no file to upload. WP doesn’t make files from your posts and pages. It simply takes everything you enter and stores it into the appropriate database locations in mySQL, the database that runs your WP install.

    You are a paradox. Blogging with emacs is very geeky, but you haven’t figure out how to use Google yet. :!-)

    But I doubt very much that you really want to do that.

    @graq: I did Google it, but it didn’t occur to me that there might be an Emacs-specific solution, so I was doing searches like “WordPress post from your own text editor”, with no luck. Anyway, thanks to both of you for your replies. I’ll check out weblogger.el, but probably stick to simple cutting and pasting until I become more familiar with WordPress.
