Checking out the Scribefire addin for FireFox in Ubuntu Linux v. 8.04.
So far, attempts to use the image upload feature are a complete waste of time, as the plug-in image browser will only find images that were originally in the <user-name> folder. JPG’s in other folders, including the standard /pictures location, don’t even show up. Nor will it let me enter the photo location directly—just closes the dialog and stares back at me. Nor will it find photos which were copied into the <user-name> folder alongside the JPG’s it does display, which were some that were originally there when I started the plug-in.
May be as usable as LiveWriter, and has the convenience of being integrated into the browser. It’s mystifying as to why the image browser is busted, though. I’ll have to figure out if this is only a problem with Linux.
Hmmm….I’m having the same problem with the WordPress image browser in Linux. They have an option to switch from a Flash uploader to a “Browser” uploader, which appears to work. I used it to upload images directly from WordPress. I’ll have to see if the Scribefire uploader works from WinXP later.
Oh, and I went to Alaska again, to see it in what passes for “Summer” up there. More on that later.
I just found the caption capability in the WordPress photo management options. I don’t remember seeing that before.
