Automatic Tag Generator For Windows Live Writer PlugIn Nearly Complete – Need Beta Testers

Good day all. This is to give you an update on the progress of the Automatic Tag Generator For Windows Live Writer Plugin I am working on.

I request anyone interested in beta testing the plugin to contact me via message or comment here. The plugin will require MS Word 2000 or above to be installed on your computer and that the .NET Framework 3.5 be installed.

The plugin logic is nearly complete. Below are screenshots of what it will look like along with explanations of what each screen does.

The options screen opens when click “View” and “Generate Tags” in the insert menu in Windows Live Writer. It will contain the title and text of your blog in the screen. You can have Technorati Tags or Windows Live Tags (or both) generated by selecting the checkboxes. Once you are ready to move on you click “Generate”.

Once complete, the tab “Create” opens. There the tags generated appear in the grid, the ability to modify, delete or add tags in the middle and the tags currently being generated in the textbox on the right. One you click “Insert” it will insert the newly created tags into your blog entry.
