Blogger's Atom API follow up

Blogger updated their Atom API implementation which fixes the bug where new entries would not get published on your blog. This means that you should be able to use ecto to post entries with titles to Blogger. Here's the how-to:

  1. launch ecto if it wasn't already running
  2. open the Account Manager (Windows->Accounts from the menu)
  3. if you already had a Blogger account, select it from the list and press the “Edit” toolbar icon, otherwise press the “Add” toolbar icon
  4. set the “Access Point:” field to “http://www.blogger.com/atom/” and the “System:” to “Atom
  5. save your edit or let the configuration process finish
  6. close the account manager
  7. open the Entries and Drafts list (Window->Entries & Drafts->Bring To Front)
  8. press the Refresh button in the bottom left of this window to retrieve a list of recent entries from your Blogger account (if it doesn't already happen automatically)
