UPDATE: Problem solved. Had to uninstall VSPaste plug-in first and uninstall the Code Snippet plug-in, restart, and then re-install. Fun fun. Newbie problem
To all bloggers out there that post code into their blog and also use Windows Live Writer, HELP!
I was currently using VSPaste plug-in. It looks great when writing the entry in the Live Writer; even the web preview looks great:
Notice the pretty colors. When uploaded, the code is just black text with no styles applied. A colleague spoke with Community Server and they suggested removing any custom CSS that may overwrite what styles the VSPaste plug-in is using.
I saw the Code Snippet Plug-in and downloaded it, but no matter how much I try, I can’t get it to show up in my list of plug-ins (Tools-> Options-> Plug-ins):
Yes, I know, I’m a developer, custom CSS is always an option too. I’d like to try tools that are out there first, please. :)
joeyDotNet: Hey Jason, I’ve tried out many of them and the best one I’ve found so far (if you’re a WLW user as I am), is this code snippet plug-in for WLW: http://gallery.live.com/liveItemDetail.aspx?li=d4409446-af7f-42ec-aa20-78aa5bac4748&bt;=9&pl;=8
Jason Meridth: Sweet. I figured as much, but when I run the MSI it installs, but I can’t find the plugin in my plugins window in WLW. Any suggestions? Am I having a newbie brain-fart? This is used in WLW and not VS 2005/2008, right?
