I have heard that there are client programs that work on windows to allow you to edit your blog from your box. Is there any such program for linux and is there any one that is in portage?
thanks

I've seen Movable Type used and it looks very nice and easy to use. I'm not sure if there is an ebuild though. Either way, it's worth checking into.

Is Movable Type a service or a client to run on your box?

I believe damianfrancis is talking about programs that allow you to interface with LiveJournal or Blogger or some blog on a different server. I know centericq interfaces with LJ. gnome-blog works with blogger, iirc.

Code:
emerge -s query
allows you to search your local portage tree for programs.

http://packages.gentoo.org allows you to search an up-to-the-minute copy of the portage tree with links to homepages and everything. It's a great reference in maintaining a Gentoo system.

Movable type is a client and a server, but it will only intrface with itself.

Yes I do know about the search function in portage and packages.gentoo.org. I'm just too lazy to actually go and see if there is an ebuild right now.

If you're using Blogger, you can use their BlogThis! bookmark.

If you use Nucleus CMS for blogging, there's a nice little javascript thingy that you can put as a bookmark in any browser. Works for me...

Allright here's the deal..

I own webspace and a domain - both of which I hardly ever use except to host stupid images and avatar and various other things of that nature.

But I've been really wanting to do something with the space - but don't really have the time to make a "website".

So I figured a personal little playground would be nice and after seeing some of my friend's blogs I figured hey - I could do that!

But - I was wondering what a good, free, easy to use system is..

I have ftp access to my friend's server but that's it :| (no ssh and whatnot.)

Any ideas? (I've never done this type of thing before because I suck at networking..)

Would you be able to have a database such as MySQL or PostgreSQL? That helps.

I use b2evolution and I like it a lot.

If you don't want to have a browser open to update it, pyBlosxom and Blosxom are nice.

A few months ago, I moved from bloxsom to WordPress. Been loving it ever sense.

WordPress (http://wordpress.org/) is pretty much the most active successor to the legendary b2. It's really gone into vogue in the last few months because of licesing problems with Movable Type. That's good, because WordPress has a lot more of an active community than Movable Type or [py]Blosxom do.

b2evolution is EXACTLY what I've wanted. I've uploaded and installed it with EASE. Great piece of software.. time to customize!

About one third-one half of all MT users have moved to the more open WordPress (the official successor to b2) in the last four months since MT3 came out. I did, and I love it. It has a number of advantages including:

- it uses dynamic pages, instead of statically generated pages
- it's written in php, not perl like MT (php is easier to find hosting for these days)
- it has a open development community

I would agree that WordPress is lovely. I almost went with it myself. There is another system I like too called TextPattern . One of the reasons I like it is that it is sort of like having a webpage that looks less bloglike...if that makes any sense at all.

Hi,

I have my own webserver, but require a linux blog tool a bit like Movable Type.

I dont know whether these types of tools/clients can be used with different blog scripts or not - so any recommendations on blog systems that allow remote blog uploads would be useful.

Sorry if the terminology is wrong - I've not ever used this sort of thing :)

Thanks

Wordpress and Serendipity are other really sweet blog scripts. Drupal is another good one that's very configurable.

If you want to do a lot of remote uploading and content management, you can't find anything better than Mambo (it's in portage).

What BLOGGING software have you guys used? Which is the best?

I have my own domain, I want to set up a blog, which software would you run on your Gentoo?

Thanks in advance,
