What is JustBlogIt?

JustBlogIt is a Mozilla / Firefox extension to allow easy right-click posting to a weblog. From any website your new blog post is only a right-click away.

How is JustBlogIt different from a other blogging bookmarklets or context-menu tools?

JustBlogIt supports posting to a variety of weblog system types and is not specific to just one. You can also use the Custom... setting to add any weblog type you want.

More importantly, JustBlogIt supports seamless posting from within many web-based News Readers. JustBlogIt checks to see if you are trying to post from a News Reader and adapts the blogging data accordingly.

What weblog types are supported by JustBlogIt?

Blogger, Drupal, LiveJournal, Movable Type, Radio Userland, TextPattern, TypePad, WordPress, journalspace, b2evolution and BLOG:CMS. Plus you can add any weblog type you want through the Custom... setting.

Which News Readers does JustBlogIt recognize?

Bloglines, Rojo, Radio Userland and Amphetadesk.

What are the requirements?

You must be using Mozilla or Firefox and have an existing blog to post to.

I use MSIE. Am I out of luck?

You may want to check out this site for some reasons to switch to a better browser.

If you aren't convinced, you can check out an earlier, klunkier, MSIE-only version of this extension here. It is no longer supported.

I want it. Gimme, gimme, gimme.

Just click the button.
Install JustBlogIt

Got it. Now how do I use it?

The next time you find an interesting item to blog about, just select something you want to quote, right-click and JustBlogIt. You can also skip the text-selection step and JustBlogIt will do something reasonable.

The real beauty is seen when blogging from within a News Reader. You can select some text or not, right-click, and JustBlogIt will recognize you are within a News Reader and extract the relevant information from the nearest blog entry.

I can't find the JustBlogIt settings page. Where is it?

In Firefox 1.5 and earlier go to Tools->Extensions. Select JustBlogIt. Click Options.

In Firefox 2.0b1 and later go to Tools->Addons. Select JustBlogIt. Click options.

I still have a question!

Feel free to and I'll see what I can do.
