How to using Windows Live Writer on umbraco

Before start config Windows Live Writer for Umbraco, make sure the Setting->Templates->Master page has following line in <head>:

<link rel="EditURI" type="application/rsd+xml" href="/umbraco/channels/rsd.aspx" />
<link rel="wlwmanifest" type="application/wlwmanifest+xml" href="/umbraco/channels/wlwmanifest.aspx" />

And create correct Content Channel (Name, Start Node in Content, Start Node in Media Library)

Config users content channel

Then you can start fill homepage with and user name and password, select Metaweblog API and fill as meta blog api URL in Windows Live Writer Tools->Accounts now.

Click finish button, you may find duplicate hostname in HomepageURL which lead to get theme failed, you can fix it by run regedit & goto HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live\Writer\Weblogs, find the right name, in this case "dotNet" and correct the wrong HomepageUrl (usually duplicate in hostname).

Change Registry

Goto Live Writer again and in Tools->Account->Editing->Refresh Theme, now that will get correct theme from site now.

That’s all done :-)
