  • First you need windows Live installed! The best is to have the latest version from Windows Live installed.

At the moment it’s from “Windows Live Essentsials 2011”.

  • Start Windows Live Writer

image

  • You need to configure the connection to your blog (not described here in detail!)

image

  • Enter the title of your post (into the rectangle area)

image

  • Set the category

image

  • Set the post date (normally “today’s date)

image

  • Set the tags / keywords

 

in the upper right corner open the “View all” link and enter your words in the “Keywords:” box

image

  • Write the “summary” of your post  (in this blog post there are 2 pictures with one sentence)

image

  • Insert the “split post – command” which enters the “<!—more—>” tags

image

you can see a line with a “more – square” (image below)

image

  • After the “more” enter your main blog – text (with source code / pictures …)

 

To enter source code (Powershell / VBS .. or other language) for example you need a plugin

(eg. Pre Code) Go to your insert Tab click on “PreCode Snippet” and post your code to the left area.

Then on the right side, you can add all your settings.

At the end press <OK>

 The following code is added to your post:

         $OSName = " -- Server OFF --"
        }# else Test-Connection
        
      
        $obj = New-Object -Type psobject
        Add-Member -InputObject $obj -MemberType NoteProperty -Value $PCname -Name Name;
        Add-Member -InputObject $obj -MemberType NoteProperty -Value $OSVer -Name OS-Ver;
        Add-Member -InputObject $obj -MemberType NoteProperty -Value $OSName -Name OS-Name;
        Add-Member -InputObject $obj -MemberType NoteProperty -Value $SPVer -Name sp;
        
          $obj
       
    }# PROCESS
     
      END{
      write-debug "END of PIPE"
      }# END
   
} #Function Get-MachineOSDetails
