I’m testing Flock, the “social” browser based on the Filefox core, as a blogging assistant. I had tried it before, but could never get the browser-to-blog interface to work.
This week, on a whim, I was toying with the “post to blog” feature of Delicio.us – the one that automatically posts your most recent bookmarks to your blog. Nothing happened until I googled the problem and found this helpful post in the WordPress.org forum:
Try this solution, since it seems to echo similar situations. First,
download the file .htaccess from your blog’s root directory and copy
it. (Odds are it will be blank, 0 bytes, but be sure.)
Next, in the copy, insert the following lines:
Finally, upload the new .htaccess back to the blog’s root directory, then try your procedure again. That should clear it up.

I edited .htaccess, uploaded and it worked for the first time ever. I should have thought of this myself, actually, web professional that I am. But I didn’t. Score another victory for the collective brain of the web.
At any rate, this post was edited and posted using the blogging editor in Flock.
