This post is about a work in progress.
A couple of days ago I attempted to upload a post as below, between the two lines across the page, about testing the Qumana blog editor. The outcome was the basically empty post below. An email to Qumana elicited the suggestion that I enable image upload in WordPress, the underlying platform for this blog. Searching on the Qumana help site and on WordPress failed to show what enabling image upload could mean, but I did find under WordPress Options a tickable (’checkable’) but unticked box captioned ‘Allow file uploads’. So now I’ve ticked that box and will again attempt an upload.

I’ve had the Qumana blog editing tool on my computer for a while now, but haven’t been using it with my Thinking Home Business site, which is a BlogHarbor hosted site. I found that the uploading process was not as smooth as I would wish and anyway the editing tool in BlogHarbor seems to serve me quite well for the most part.
But now I’m working on this WordPress site and have a couple more WordPress sites awaiting some work and I found myself getting quite frustrated today when using the WordPress editing tool to edit a page (as distinct from a blog post) to upload onto this site.
Earlier in the day I had noticed that my friend Dean Hua was plugging w.bloggar as a ‘great WYSIWYG editor for blogs, so I had a quick look at the w.bloggar site and then thought, why not give Qumana another try and see how useful it is with WordPress. If nothing else, I owe it to my colleague Tris Hussey to give his product a fairer try-out than I think I’ve done to date.
