Joe, of people are stupid
, asks how to post to your Radio blog from multiple computers. I bet Rogers
will answer this one too, but I'll have a go at it here.
In short: Radio doesn't have any built-in synchronisation. Your posts are stored on your local machine, and when your blog is published, the HTML pages are generated and posted up to the server. It's not like Blogger, where all your posts live on a server, or Movable Type, where all your posts live on the same server as the blog.
This is good sometimes (if your web host loses all your pages, you can just hit 'republish all' and get your blog back, and if you want to switch web hosts, you can do it very easily) but can make synchronisation difficult.
Radio has two features that may suit you, though: posting by e-mail and allowing remote access.
If you sign up for dynamic DNS service with someone like DynDns
, you can get a domain name that will always point to your dialup or DSL/cable connected PC at home. Go to the Remote access and security
config page in Radio and click on the first two boxes (that will let you post from other systems). Leave the third one (access to system pages) unchecked, but check the fourth one (require a password) and type in a username and password you want to use. This is important as otherwise anybody who finds your computer online can post to your blog.
Now, leave your computer connected to the internet when you go to work and connect back to the domain you configured (something.cjb.net or something.dyndns.org, something.ath.cx etc). You should get a login/password prompt, and when you enter the username and password you configured earlier, you'll see the Radio interface and will be able to blog.
If you don't want to leave your PC connected all the time, you can get Radio to periodically check your e-mail and post anything it receives. Only do this if you have a spare address -- don't use your normal address as it will delete all your mail :)
The config page for that is here
. Give it your server name, username and password, set 'check mail every XX minutes' to 30 or something, change the secret subject, and save the settings.
Now when you want to post, send a message to that mailbox and put the 'secret subject' in the subject line, and your blog post in the message body. It should show up on yourblog once Radio checks your mail and publishes it.
Good luck ;-)
