I love Windows Live Writer as a blogging application and use it pretty much exclusively for writing my blog posts. The only downside is that I have found it difficult to get code snippets formatted correctly in my posts. Luckily a friend of mine, Tyson Swing, turned me on to a great code snippet plugin for Windows Live writer.
The Windows Live Writer code snippet plugin is aptly named “CodeSnippet” and you can download it here: http://wlwplugincollection.codeplex.com/
This Windows Live Writer code snippet plugin is provided by Leo Vidosola. http://lvildosola.blogspot.com/
Personally, I have found that the following settings work well for the “CodeSnippet” plug in:
- Be sure to select the correct code language
- No Line Numbers
- No Alternate Lines
- No Container
