WordPress.root is a Tool that runs in the OPML Editor that makes it easy to create and edit posts in the outliner and save them in WordPress. This document explains how to get going.
1. First, if you haven’t already done so, download and install the OPML Editor app for Windows or Macintosh.
2. Choose the Tool Catalog command in the Misc menu. A list of Tools should appear in your web browser and you should see wordPress in that list. In the last column is a link named Install, click it. A dialog confirms that you want to install it, click on OK.
3. After a few seconds the WordPress prefs page appears, asking for three pieces of information: Your weblog’s URL, username and password. When you click on Submit the OPML Editor communicates with your WordPress installation to get information that connects the two, and it verifies that you have a valid username and password. If all goes well, it confirms that, otherwise you will see an error message in red that explains what went wrong.
4. Now you’re ready to enter a new post. Bring the OPML Editor to the front, choose Open Workspace from the WordPress sub-menu of the Tools menu. A window opens, with three buttons at the top, Save, New Post and View. Click on New Post, enter the title of your post, then enter a bit of text, and click on Save. When you hear a short beep that means the post has been saved. Click the View button to bring the browser to the front and you can see the post in WordPress. Screen shot.
5. You can edit as much as you like, create new posts, etc.
6. See the OPML Editor help site for tips on using the outliner.
