This is a test – If this were a REAL Emergency, IT WOULD PROBABLY ALREADY BE TOO LATE!

I have recently been using a blogging software called “Qumana blog manager.”  It is very easy to use and has good features.  I decided to use it over Windows Live Writer (WLW), which I have liked in the past.  The reason I did not continue using WLW is because when I attempted to set up my blog in WLW, you know, that long drawn out process where WLW attempts to find your blog and set it up so you can compose in the computer and publish to your blog…that step.  Well, WLW would get about 34% in the set up process, and then it would hang when it attempts to load images.  Qumana had NO issues during the set up phase.

My concern is that when publishing with Qumana, my photos are not showing up on my front page of my blog theme.  My photos are also not showing up as a thumbnail accompanying the title of my blog post, in Facebook.

Thus, I’m running this test with this entry:  I’m composing this blog entry in WordPress.  I have also uploaded and attached the file in WordPress.

Here is what I want to see:

  1. The photo above, showing up on the front page of my blog.
  2. The photo above, which will be publicized on my Facebook page, showing up next to the blog entry title.

Let’s see what happens…if it is a Qumana issue, then, ARGH!  It’s ease of use and friendly user options will not outweigh the fact of it not attaching photo files to my front page, or, not showing the thumbnail image on my publicized post at Facebook.  If your blog is mostly about photography, as mine is, then these ‘irritations’ are not acceptable.
