I use wordpress for blogging and its ability to interface with almost all the text editors on the planet form live writer to scribe fire. I wanted to use joomla for blogging but i did not want to login to joomla and edit inside the browser. Though joomla has cool editors like jck and jce. I wanted to do it off the browser. I started using this way back when the project was in its youth before 1.7. The first time i tried configuring it. It took me three days. I installed sef component and lost track of the link. This problem has been abated in the latest version of the plugin with the ability to choose between absolute and relative links. Thanks for the amazing plugin. I use it in all my sites, just in case!
